About Us

Hello, And Welcome to Mexico Relocation Guide!

We are Dustin and Mariana Lange, owners of Mexico Relocation Guide.

I was born in Mexico, but around 8 years old, my parents and I became immigrants and moved to the United States of America. My entire extended family lives in Mexico, and even though I was raised in the U.S. I spend 3-4 months in Mexico every year for the summer and holidays. I truly understand both the American and Mexican cultures. I also speak fluent Spanish and English.

I met my husband Dustin online 8 years ago, and the rest is history!

A few years ago, Dustin and I were getting tired of the rate race in Austin, Texas. The cost of living increased a lot, and we felt like we might have to work until we died. And I know that many people feel the same way. They know they don’t want to work forever, but they don’t see any other way to afford their life. We looked into a few countries where the cost of living could be lower without sacrificing our quality of life.

We looked at Spain, Portugal, Ecuador, Panama, Costa Rica, and Mexico. Mexico kept coming up as our number one option. I grew up here, for starters, but it also helped that both Dustin and I have spent a lot of time in Mexico and were familiar with various cities.

I began to research everything I could about moving to Mexico as an ex-pat and found that a lot of the information I found online had either never been updated or had failed to be accurate. I found a lot of great free resources online about moving to Mexico and retiring in Mexico.

But I also found terrible and wrong advice.

I’ve done hundreds of hours of research, and with the help of expert advice, I started this handy website where I share accurate, easy to follow and up-to-date information with YOU in mind.

This website was created to share accurate information about retiring and living in Mexico straight from sources like the Mexican Government, Real Estate Professionals, Immigration Experts, Expat Tax Experts, and the like.

It’s a team effort! 

Dustin helps me manage all things website-related, and I focus on blog posts and social media. And together, we run Mexico Relocation Guide!

I’ve met a lot of people who love living here! However, I have also met some folks who believed stories they read online of Mexico being a paradise where you can live like royalty on pennies, with all of the comforts of back home. Some people I’ve met moved to Mexico without visiting first. And some of these people were greatly disappointed when the reality of their new home was not the rose-colored-glasses vision they had read about online. So, some people move back home with a tremendous financial loss and a lot of undue stress.

Mexico isn’t for everyone!

To avoid that costly mistake, I highly recommend that you check out our Mexico Relocation Guide before you decide to retire in Mexico. Our relocation guide has a lot of helpful information so you can have the confidence that Mexico is the right place for you! In the guide, we talk about getting a residency visa, hiring the right immigration expert, moving with pets, and even finding a great rental! I also share with you the contact information of my recommended real estate agents, immigration experts, doctors, and other contacts that can be very useful on your move!
