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.

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!
