I have enjoyed and recommend following Surviving Mexico as I’ve learned lots of tips on living in Mexico and even about the failures and successes via the Courses and Resources within this page.

“Enjoyed it all”

Surviving Mexico has motivated me to face all kinds of struggles and overcome them with grace and humor. I’ve enjoyed learning about everyday life in Mexico, such as their delicious foods and beautiful culture. I’ve also enjoyed the additional resources offered such as the books and courses. I’ve learned so much!
