Living in Mexico City is NOT What People Think

If you’ve never been to Mexico City, it’s easy to imagine the city as a large and concrete jungle. After all, Mexico City is one of the largest cities in the world!

But living in Mexico City is surprisingly not overwhelming. Each “colonia” or neighborhood has it’s own amenities like hospitals, restaurants, bars, grocery stores, public transport, and everything you could need.

We want to show you that living in Mexico City doesn’t have to feel like you’re living in the biggest city of Latin America! And we want to show you that Mexico City or CDMX as the locals refer to it, is so much more than the trendy neighborhoods of Roma, La Condesa, or Polanco.

In our newest video, our guest Gabriela shows us what her day to day is like, and gives you her advice for living in Mexico City

Gabrielle is one of our recommended immigration facilitators and local relocation tour guides in Mexico City. If you’d like to work with her check out our COMPLETE Mexico Relocation Guide- you’ll get instant access to her contact information
