Mexico City
Hey all

Hey all,

I am very new to this forum and I just wanted to say that it is a pleasure to meet other likeminded folks.

I am in my mid-30s, single (but rarely alone and always dating Smile) I have a flourishing career as a writer in the film industry. I live in NYC and visit LA often for work: I used to live in LA, can't do it anymore. Frankly I am hitting a wall with NYC living and specifically the real estate in the city. I pay $2700 for a very nice apartment in Brooklyn but I just can't see a future as a house owner in NYC. I am not in hedge funds. I make low 6 figures and I feel like my income is going out of the window - specifically in my landlord's pocket. Truthfully I am starting to wonder if NYC itself isn't as alluring as it was in my 20s and even early 30s.

So what 's the alternative? Move to another city in the US (I really like Chicago but don't know anyone there and it almost doesn't feel like a big enough change).

Or... put a foot in Latin America. I would maintain US residency and a strong connection to the US, but I would make sure that my life isn't US-based.

My plan would be to continue working in the US (remotely) and earn US dollars.

In Latin America, I have only been to Mexico City and Colombia (spent 2 months there) and adore both. I have friends in both countries. Are there other options? Sure. I hear Argentina is gorgeous and I am Italian so I would probably fit in really well there. But it's very far. I also hear Chile is stunning and the most "tranquil" of Latin countries. But again- no connection to it.

So it really looks like Mexico City or Bogota are my best bets.

To those who know... here are some questions!

- I have been to Mexico City and felt as safe there as I do in Downtown Brooklyn (minus the Mexican SWAT teams on the corners). But more generally.. how safe is Mexico, the country?? I can't put a finger on it. One one hand I read horrific accounts about how stepping into the wrong town will get you decapitated. On the other hand I've often been a staunch cynic of the US's portrayal of Mexico and feel like it's completely blown out of proportion. So on a practical level, how is it? Can I rent a car in Mexico City and take a trip exploring the country (like I did in Colombia) or will it go horribly wrong?

- How do real estate prices in Mexico City or Bogota compare with, say, New York City?? Again I am getting a little confused. The fantasy of how far my dollar would go got erased when I looked up properties in Polanco, Roma, La Condesa. They weren't NY prices but they were surprisingly expensive.

- What's life in Mexico City like as a resident? I have this romantic idea that it's frenetic but also wildly exciting, a cauldron of fascinating characters, amazing food, warm people, Europe-meets-Azteca, art.

- To those who earn US dollars and live abroad, how did you deal with the whole taxation conundrum? Did you continue paying taxes in the US and also in Mexico?

- Does Mexico have health insurance?

- What type of Visa would I need to live part-time in the country?

- How are Italians viewed in Mexico? Any experiences?

- Is it unfeasible to invest in a property in Mexico City, live half the year there and the other half in Los Angeles or NYC? Ironically my flight from Mexico City to Los Angeles would be shorter than the current one from NYC to LA) so distance isn't an issue.

- I guess a big conundrum is that I LOVE Colombia-the-country and Colombian women. I mean, damn. I was there for 2 months and slayed. I'm not a kid so I feel like I have 3-4 years left of full on hunting. But... Bogota as a city just doesn't appeal the way Mexico City does. And besides Bogota I don't see many other "major" cities in Colombia I could live in. (they're just way too provincial - Medellin included).

Thoughts hugely appreciated...

RE: Mexico City
Mexico's danger is highly extraggerated. They get like 30+ million baby boomers every year who are fat, slow targets and carry $5,000 in their wallet and yet never get mugged or beaten up.

I was in PV and saw them all over the place, even highly intoxicated, and nothing bad happened to them as far as I could tell.

I walked everywhere in PV because I knew taxi drivers are usually crooks (they are in virtually all countries).

And I knew people in PV who have been expats there for years (primarily as English teachers) and they were renting in lower-income neighborhoods and nothing bad happened.

I know tons of people in their 50s and 70s who have been to Mexico dozens of times.

The rare times you hear about bad stuff happening to tourists: it was guys looking for chicks / prostitutes at night. Or it was a woman who drank like 8 cocktails, flirted with a bunch of Latino guys, banged them and the next day regretted it so cried rape (this technically happens in every country with female tourists. I travel a ton and 2 times in my life I had female tourists who tried to send the cops after me and I didn't even put my penis in them!).

Now Colombia is a whole different story. A lot of YouTube clips of armed robbers hitting up multiple cars within a single clip. Hostels in Medellin that actually got targeted by armed robbers (never heard of an equivalent happening in Mexico or anywhere else).



But in my case I don't want to go back to Mexico because I had to pay bribes to police and bureaucrats. I also thought the woman situation was bad: a lot of Amerindian single moms dominating Tinder (although when I GPS spoofed to Mexico City it seems a bit better there). I also got bored quickly with PV (it's just a small seaside town) and probably would get bored in Mexico city too (all city neighborhoods are the same everywhere in the world. A place is only interesting to me if I can bang high quality chicks in a nutshell).

So far I am intending on going to Taiwan. If Taiwan ends up being bad then I might consider Mexico but I would be looking at Oxaca or Mexico City (the Mexican east coast seems to be having issues with mafia wars now).

RE: Mexico City
I suggest Argentina. It's the most liveable of the Latin American countries. Buenos Aires is my favourite city in Latin America. The cost of living for foreign earners is cheap because of inflation and the government's terrible fiscal policies. The girls are hot. The steaks are tender.

Colombia is a second choice, the girls are passionate and cariñosa, but just realise that after some extended time you will be frustrated with how unliveable this country is. Also, Colombia is not cheap - the cost of living is totally out of proportion with local salaries and the quality of products is low... except of course tropical fruit which is cheap. Colombian cuisine is terrible, but your novia can cook in-house day-to-day.

Chile is nice, but expensive, and certainly not as good as Argentina.

Mexico has the best cuisine in all of Latin America - amazing food. Most foreigners would want to live in the upper echelon of Mexico DF but this will be very expensive. Mexican girls are fat on average.

You've said this in 3 different threads now and I can't find a single video on Youtube about what your talking about. Everything about violence in Medellin or Colombia is from 5-8 years ago. Even typing in "Medellin crime" only brings up stuff about murders that are drug/gang related by police.

RE: Mexico City
yo nice to see a connazionale in here.

DF is pretty safe if you stick to the best areas like Condesa etc.
Some highway around the city is infamous for kidnappings but they usually target Mexicans, you should be ok as foreigner unless you show off your money to the wrong people. I would take coletivos rather than driving around if you are not familiar with the area.

Regarding rest of Mexico its obviously a massive place, as rule of thumb the closer to the American border the more dangerous. Have heard some real gangster shit from people that comes from there and had family members killed/burned alive by the narcos.

I would avoid Acapulco and Chihuahua. Quintana Roo and Yucatan are very safe, even though some cartel recently entered in Cancun and violence is rising.

Italians have a very positive image in Mexico, as I guess rest of Europeans. Mexican people are amazing but a bit ignorant, so don't expect them to know much about our country or anything other than Mexico. The one that do have usually lived in Europe/USA and have a more snobbish attitude its hard to explain but you will recognise them easily.

The only places where I met many Italians was Playa del Carmen and Tulum.
Chances are you will meet none in Mexico City, very weird experience if you used to visit cities like Rio, Miami, NYC, BA where there are plenty..
If you are like me and like to have fellow countrymen around I would avoid Mexico City.

You can kill it in Mexico but I didn't think girls hotness was anywhere near Brazil or Colombia so take that in mind.

RE: Mexico City
Thanks guys
Re Argentina: I can tell that I would fall in love with Buenos Aires just by looking at photos and footage of it: but it’s so damn far and as I stated initially, the goal is to be tethered to the US so as to keep my career going and earn dollars.

Re Colombia: I love the country and the women are gorgeous. I just didn’t click with Bogota that strongly. It felt like an ugly mess. So ironically the downside of living in Colombia would be having to embrace its capital (since I would live there)

Re Mexico City and the girls being fat... you sure about that?? Ok there are fat girls everywhere but I saw lots of hotties when I was there.... they were much fairer/more European looking than the Mexicans we see in LA or NY (they don’t need to emigrate)

It seems like a much more stimulating and vibrant place than Bogota or much of Colombia, culturally/artistically speaking.

Maybe the key is to set up camp in Mexico City and then make frequent trips to Colombia for some pussy filled empanadas ? Lol

RE: Mexico City
Mexico City= a top 10 city in the world for me. Amazing weather 10.5 months out of the year. I head down there 2 or 3 times a year. Been there for 4 concerts (somehow all at different venues; the killers, DMB, sting, guns and roses) BUT only place I've ever been pick pocketed in my life. But that was me being dumb, drinking acting like a dumb American tourist on an incredibly crowded subway, it was my fault. I was a bad mark.

DF is Cheap (I'm originally from California)

They have 3 of the top 50 restaurants in the world there, all 3... they are LEGIT!
And of course the street food is amazing as well.

And tons of non stop flights to many many US airports- which sounds like might be important to you to come back to JFK or LAX from time to time for fun/friends and work.

I feel a hell of a lot safer in DF then I do in San Francisco or Chicago.

I'm also single and mid 30's. Because of this, not sure I'd live in Polanco. Don't get me wrong, it's an amazing neighborhood. It just shuts down at 11. For me= in condesa around the two parks there, parquet Mexico and parque espana. There is a tree lined street around parque Mexico. Street name is Amsterdam. Take a lap around that street and there is no way you'll feel unsafe. Great spot.

RE: Mexico City
I like mexico and will be bouncing around there for most of the winter on my moto. The temp residency visa isn't super complicated to get (from my research) but you do need to start the app process at your local mexican consulate.

If you make it to DF or playa we definitely should meet up!

Also +1 for buenos aires. Lived there for almost 4 months and loved it. Plus its only getting cheaper there if you're earning in USD. My spanish was subpar then and it was super to hard for me to pickup the locals if they didn't speak some english. Ohh but I will be back Banana

Tell us more about your moto trip please, have you done it before, what type of bike and where do you plan on going?

I'm looking into doing a quick recon trip to CDMX next month, probably just 5-6 days to check out the city and decide whether or not I want to make it my new winter base. As many on here know, my go to spot has been Colombia for the past several years but I'm a bit bored with it now and Mexico is a much easier place for me to travel to as there's direct flights from Calgary that are pretty cheap (5 hours, about $300-350 USD).

God damned them all, I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold, we'd fire no guns-shed no tears, now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier, the last of Barrett's privateers!

RE: Mexico City
Hi Harryhonolulu. Nice handle.

I lived in Bogota for 3 years and I've been living + working in CDMX for a little over 1 so I may be equipped to answer your questions. I live here as bohemian and minimalistic, so take that in mind. If the good life to you is German luxury automobiles, bottle service, pâte, and clubs with smoke machines, you may want to read what I'll write below with a more critical eye.

I've cut out the rest of your post and will respond to some of your questions below directly.



- I have been to Mexico City and felt as safe there as I do in Downtown Brooklyn (minus the Mexican SWAT teams on the corners). But more generally.. how safe is Mexico, the country?? I can't put a finger on it. One one hand I read horrific accounts about how stepping into the wrong town will get you decapitated. On the other hand I've often been a staunch cynic of the US's portrayal of Mexico and feel like it's completely blown out of proportion. So on a practical level, how is it? Can I rent a car in Mexico City and take a trip exploring the country (like I did in Colombia) or will it go horribly wrong?


Mexico has pockets of tranquility and pockets of danger.

Based on what the locals who have been there or have family there are saying, here are some of the dangerous areas: The border cities, certain cities en el Estado De Mexico (e.g. Ecatepec), Acapulco, Michoacan, Colima. Others friends have told me that Veracruz and Jalisco (state of major city Guadlajara) are increasingly becoming more dangerous.

My understanding, however, is that the danger in these towns has more to do with mafia/narcos targeting locals for racketeering and kidnappings -- and not so much foreigners. I'm won't offer the above as travel advice, but I'm inclined to believe it.

After living in CDMX for a year in la Colonia Roma, I haven't felt any sense of danger in this city. That said, I'm also not fucking around in Tepito, Doctores, or el Estado de Mexico.

Wealthy and upper-middle class alike freely take trips to nearby 'pueblos magicos' and around the country. I've taken trips as well, both by bus and as a car passenger, and didn't experience any sense of danger or menace.


- How do real estate prices in Mexico City or Bogota compare with, say, New York City?? Again I am getting a little confused. The fantasy of how far my dollar would go got erased when I looked up properties in Polanco, Roma, La Condesa. They weren't NY prices but they were surprisingly expensive.

If you're looking on Airbnb, you're going to get hosed. Saavy locals have bought apartments in those destinations and treat Airbnb like a hotel booking service for foreigners.

The best deals are posted at the property in the neighborhood where you want to rent. Renting permanently is significantly cheaper than NY and any major US metro, but it can be a challenge to get an apartment as a foreigner.

The reason for this is that the vast majority landlords require an additional guarantee in the form of a fiador, a property owner who offers property as collateral for lease payment, or an aval, a creditworthy 3rd party who can guarantee payment of the lease. I'm not aware of any way that you can obtain these documents as a foreigner. You can get around these requirements by offering more additional months in prepaid rent or deposit money. But if you're going to take advantage of these deals, you'll need to know Spanish or have a local friend can help get you set up.

To round out my answer to your question...food and dining are cheaper. Uber and public transport is cheaper. Entertainment is cheaper. Electronics, more expensive. Cars, more expensive. Hotels, cheaper. Flights within the country, cheaper. I say all this as an American accustomed to cost of living from big city Texas.


- What's life in Mexico City like as a resident? I have this romantic idea that it's frenetic but also wildly exciting, a cauldron of fascinating characters, amazing food, warm people, Europe-meets-Azteca, art.

Life here is what you make of it.

I live bohemian and minimalistically and spend a lot of time reading in my apartment, going to museums, walking the city, and fucking around in coffee shops. I irregularly go to the gym, and I jump rope once or twice a week in the landlord's driveway. I don't really go to bars or clubs, but I go to the occasional cocktail or jazz bar. I often eat out at trendy casual restaurants and go to indie movies with my girl.

This city is enormous... Hay de todo para todo.

For me, it's the 21st century version of Samuel Johnson's London. You have forward thinking, chaos, beauty, ignorance, dynamism, status anxiety, resignation, and tension. In many parts of the city, there is a sense of dilapidated grandeur. There is an odious current of classism, but that's par for the course in Latin America. For me, the city offers a great mix of traditionalism and cosmopolitanism. Moreso than Colombia which struck me as more insular.

Being an anonymous foreigner with dollars in my pocket who speaks the language and who has a blue passport, my lifestyle here is superb. People here are open and curious about foreigners and they treat us better than they treat eachother.

All told, I can never go back to the USA after living here.

But Spanish proficiency is a must if you're going to squeeze the juice out of this city.

- To those who earn US dollars and live abroad, how did you deal with the whole taxation conundrum? Did you continue paying taxes in the US and also in Mexico?


If you work for a Mexican company more than 183 days a year, you are supposed to report and pay taxes on worldwide income. To get around this, I structured my work contract to work for less than <183 days so that I will only pay taxes on Mexican income.

I'm actually in somewhat of a gray area and am living here on a tourist visa and working with a friend who has a Mexican company, however I do plan to pay taxes on my Mexican earnings in April of next year.


- Does Mexico have health insurance?

Not qualified to answer. I had a close family member who required hospital care for cancer treatment and the bill struck me as quite inexpensive given the nature of the treatment and length of stay. I don't remember the number, as it was some time ago.


- What type of Visa would I need to live part-time in the country?

As an American citizen, your entry comes with a tourist visa valid for 180 days. I believe it is the same for EU passport holders, but Do Your Own Research.

While the length of consecutive stay is 180 days, there is no calendar days per year limit to the time you can stay here. In other words, you can come and go and come and go indefinitely based on current immigration laws, at least for American citizens.


- How are Italians viewed in Mexico? Any experiences?

Italians and French seem to be viewed quite favorably here in CDMX.

- Is it unfeasible to invest in a property in Mexico City, live half the year there and the other half in Los Angeles or NYC? Ironically my flight from Mexico City to Los Angeles would be shorter than the current one from NYC to LA) so distance isn't an issue.

Won't give advice here, but I will mention some things to keep in mind.

- Mortgage rates are high

- Foreigners can only own property through a bank trust (fideicomiso)

- There have been 2 major earthquakes in the last 20 years, and the city is built on top of porous soil of a former lakebed, which amplifies the tremors.

- Property values + rents are increasing.


- I guess a big conundrum is that I LOVE Colombia-the-country and Colombian women. I mean, damn. I was there for 2 months and slayed. I'm not a kid so I feel like I have 3-4 years left of full on hunting. But... Bogota as a city just doesn't appeal the way Mexico City does. And besides Bogota I don't see many other "major" cities in Colombia I could live in. (they're just way too provincial - Medellin included).

Thoughts hugely appreciated...


The female talent here is vastly inferior to Bogota, Colombia. No way around that. The girls here in general aren't as sexy but I've found them to be more nurturing, intelligent, and enjoyable outside the bedroom. Colombianas are built for speed and Mexicanas are built for distance, if you know what I mean.

The Colombian countryside and landscapes are also more scenic, although Mexico doesn't disappoint on this count. Mexican beaches are far better.

Other than the two items above, I've found CDMX superior on every count. But I'll repeat, Spanish is a must if you're going to make a go of it long term.

hey dude, the plan is to ride this old klr650 i bought down there. I picked the klr because they are cheap, easy to work on and find parts for (since kawasaki didn't change the design of the bike for almost 20 years), and guys ride around the world on them regularly.

I've never ridden mexico before, but have done a couple trips, in the US and i rode around all of thailand on a rental. After a successful winter riding mexico I'd like to flyback down to south america and buy a bike for touring around Argentina/Brasil/Colombia etc. but that's another trip.

As for the mexican route, i really have a couple points to hit and a crudely marked up map (advice from riders who have done mexico before) with some highways to take. That's about it, my timeline is more lax than most who plan these kind of trips so i'm factoring in a lot of time for wandering. I want to end up in PDC and will probably stay there to work and pimp for a few of the winter months.

I am a little confused by several points here. You had to pay bribes to police and bureaucrats? I have lived in Mexico City (and around) for nearly 4 years and have never paid a bribe in any form. What exactly were you doing that you had to pay your way out of?

You are basing the talent of Mexico on PV? That is like saying the talent sucks in the USA because of what you see in International Falls.

If you get bored in Mexico City it is all on you. The hot girls are here you just need to do some work to get them. And yes there are swarms of "OK" girls that will bang very easily.

You may consider Oaxaca? I can say without hesitation that has some of the worst talent in this entire country. The Southern states of Oaxaca and Chiapis are nearly void of cute girls. There is too much indigenous blood. You need to hit up Mexico City for the best talent (and some easy mid level girls). Colombia is better (for girls) and this will never be disputed. However, with some effort and social circle you can pull top shelf here. Colombia has an overall better look on average but it is not like all Mexicans are fat. And the culture here is a huge bonus. The guys in this country are really friendly towards me. I speak spanish but it is not an absolute must in Mexico City. It is a must in Medellin.

I'm not a kid so I feel like I have 3-4 years left of full on hunting. But... Bogota as a city just doesn't appeal the way Mexico City does. And besides Bogota I don't see many other "major" cities in Colombia I could live in. (they're just way too provincial - Medellin included).

Thoughts hugely appreciated...

You have so many questions it would take me an hour to reply. Send me a PM and maybe we can chat somehow. I lived in NYC before (15 years) and have been in Mexico City close to 4 years. However, I can assure you that if you are in your mid 30s you have WAY more than 3-4 years left of hunting. I didn't start the international hunt until late 30s...haha

RE: Mexico City
Here in Mexico City (and at most cities in the world) few things are as powerful as Social Circle Game. For many many years I dedicated my time into online game, with "average" results at best (maybe because I am 6'6" tall). Now, my best and favourite girls are all from social circle (former work colleagues, from parties, or introduced to me by friends). Just get the right connections, find rich boys or artist guys and befriend them to gain access to their circles full of hot Interlomas/Santa Fe or Polanco college-aged girls. Find ways to help them get clients, recommendations or to grow their businesses. Value for value.

Good luck.

RE: Mexico City
Guys, I have a nice place in Condesa the rest of the year. My buddy bailed to Brazil. I need a like minded person as a roomy. There is way too much ass coming through here. It would not go well with your average every day person. I have 4 years experience in this city. It is cheap for the area. Hit me up if interested.

I sat back and let you form your social circle. Now when are you going to let me invade?

This is so damn true. In Mexico city making connections is actually easy for a foreigner, my friend introduced me to his friend (a dj), he invited me to his event and bang in just 1 hour I got free entry, free alcohol, he introduced me to his hot female friends. Then from those friends I met more friends who happened to be hot chicks. Social circle will get you to so many places in this city.

RE: Mexico City
I agree ^ I think it's because they like having a cool foreigner as a friend.

You have to actually be likeable and speak some Spanish though.

You can't be one of these weird foreigners. Like the American/Canadian boomers wearing terrible shorts and sandals. A beer belly, grey hair, completely out of place, no friends apart from the occasional other foreigner, can't even say the word 'cerveza' or 'taco' without being misunderstood or laughed at for the comical gringo accent. Just be the opposite of that.

RE: Mexico City
Arafat Scarf, do you know of any barrios in CDMX that would be similar to Chapinero in Bogota? I prefer areas that aren't too high end, international, sterile, safe, etc. I like to have a more authentic and local experience, I also don't mind if it's a bit rough although I obviously don't want to stay in an area where I have to be super paranoid about my safety at all times. I'm probably going to stay in a hotel for my short trip, hoping to find something in the the $30-50 USD/night range.

God damned them all, I was told we'd cruise the seas for American gold, we'd fire no guns-shed no tears, now I'm a broken man on a Halifax pier, the last of Barrett's privateers!

CDMX end of next month!

A man who procrastinates in his choosing will inevitably have his choice made for him by circumstance.

A true friend is the most precious of all possessions and the one we take the least thought about acquiring.

Maybe La Condesa but its way less gritty then Chapinero.
