Everything You Need To Know About Life In Mexico City

I’m FINALLY leaving. 

And, as a sort of departure gift, I thought I’d write a post on living in Mexico City. If you are wondering what life is like in the capital, I’m here to help. Whether you’re moving here, or doing a short-term stay, here’s what you should know.

Mexico City vs Lima: Which City Is Better For Expats?

Whenever I’m in a new city in Latin America, there’s only one thing on my mind:

Is this somewhere I would like to live?

You see, I have a somewhat odd life plan at the moment. I want to do extended stays (3 months or more) in the region for at least the next few years.

This makes me a bit different than the average backpacker who can gather all the information he needs from Lonely Planet.

I’m forced to dig deeper.

So, without further ado, it’s time for another one of my Latin American city showdowns. In this post I will be comparing the “City of Palaces” (Mexico) with the “City of Kings” (Lima) to determine which is the better city for an expat to live in.

5 Simple Rules For First Time Visitors To Mexico

I’ve been living in Mexico for almost a year. And, while I don’t claim to be an expert on Mexican culture, norms and mores, I have picked up on a few things that can make adjusting here as a foreigner a whole hell of a lot easier.

Basically, these tips are aimed at helping prevent foreigners – particularly young ones – from offending any locals, or becoming a stereotype.

I’d imagine that most of these tips should be common sense, but I’ve seen enough foreigners trip up on them while they’re here, so I figured it was worth composing a cheeky little list.

The list is based on the criteria outlined on my cities guides, so you’ll want to click on the link to the city to get a thoroughgoing breakdown on the destination to find out why it ranked the way it did.

The Five Best Bars In Mexico City For Tourists

Mexico City has an obscene amount of bars – you’ll never go thirsty here.

And although that’s a good thing, the abundance of choice can be overwhelming for first time visitors.

But not to worry.

There is a handful of bars that welcomes tourists with open arms (and  legs) and most of them are located within walking distance of one another.

Now, before I give you the list, a quick disclaimer:

The Hottest Girls In South America By City

Here you have a list. What I’ve done is ranked all of the cities guides that I have on the site (a total of 67 guides) based on the hotness of the women in South America.

If it sounds shallow…it is.

How To Fake Your Tinder Location & Meet Girls From All Over Latin America

I’ve never been a Tinder enthusiast. 

I don’t deny that it’s one of the most efficient ways to hookup with women at home and on the road, but I prefer a more organic approach. It must be the romantic in me.

That being said, when I discovered a hack while browsing blogs and forums that allows you to fake your Tinder location and meet girls from any country, city, barrio or favela in Latin America as well as anywhere in the world, I knew I had to give it a try.
