Moving To Acapulco, Mexico

Postby Leal » Tue Nov 29, 2016 9:18 pm

Hello!

Me and my husband our moving to acapulco mexico pretty soon with our 9 month old daughter. I was wondering if children still get there every 3 month shots over there? Before i move do i need to find a regular pediatrician for my daughter to go to and get the paper work sent over there? Im also wondering how to look on a search engine like google and what to type in in spanish looking for a place to live in acapulco. We are trying to find a place to live over there and i want to search before moving. And also we our going over there with at least 3-5 thousand us dollars and we were thinking about opening up like a little rancho or something like that for monthly income, could you help me with the information about building one and about how long it would take and about how many pesos and also what would i need to type in on google? I know this is alot of question but I only have a little bit of time so all the information that you have for me would be great. Thank you

Moving To Acapulco, Mexico

Hello Savannah,

Congratulations on your upcoming move to Mexico. You are wise to be planning for the important details and to be thinking about how you can invest in your financial stability in Mexico.  The nature of your questions show that you have quite a lot to learn about how Mexico differs from the US(It seems that you are writing from the US).

I’m sure you don’t have any free time with a 9-month-old, but I would recommend reading a couple of books on life in Mexico. These will help you to predict the difficulties you may face and plan accordingly.  There are lots of good ones, but I recommend two, to start with.  Barry Golson’s GRINGOS IN PARADISE talks about getting set up in a small town on the coast. If you are considering a “rancho” then you must be considering a small town as well. I’m sure you would learn a lot from his book.  Also, I wrote a book for people just like you. It’s called MEXICO: THE TRICK IS LIVING HERE and you can get the second edition on my web site www.home-sweet-mexico.com.  Also consider HEAD FOR MEXICO: THE RENEGADE GUIDE by Don Adams and THE PEOPLE’S GUIDE TO MEXICO by Carl Franz et al.

Also check out Mike Goll’s blog. It’s full of wonderful details: http://mikeletioscar.blogspot.com/2007/01/insects-in-mexico.html

In the meantime here are some answers to your questions.

Yes, children receive regular shots. These web pages will answer many of your questions about vaccinations and finding paediatricians. Make sure you read the comments as well(either below the post or click on the comments link under the title) and click on the link to the IMSS site from there: http://home-sweet-mexico.com/2009/09/

Google works just fine in Spanish, but the truth is that Google is not the best answer to finding what you need in Mexico. Mexico is a face-to-face society and you have to be there in person to get accurate answers to your questions.  As far as finding a place to live, mostly owners who target foreigners list their apartments on the internet so you won’t find the most affordable options on the internet. Also, you must not agree to anything sight unseen.  

I’m not sure what you mean by opening a rancho. Ranchos are usually small places people live in.  It’s good you have some money to take with you but three to five thousand dollars is not going to be enough to do much with.  Investing in a business in Mexico is very smart, especially if your husband is Mexican, but you’ve got to make the final arrangements once you are in Mexico so that you can see what will work and what won’t. Be on site to direct any construction you may choose to take on.  Again, three to five thousand is really only enough to be an emergency fund.

Maybe you could open a small neighbourhood store.  That would be something you could do with your daughter nearby.  

Many Mexicans who have been in the US for a number of years have a false impression of how easy it will be to set themselves up in Mexico and how much money it will require.  Mexico is not as cheap as it used to be. Food prices have increased exponentially over the last couple of years and so have other prices as well.  

I really, really recommend you read my book. Your questions remind me of the ones I had before I went to Mexico!

Kindest Regards and the best of luck to you,
