Wanna be Expats!!! Can we move to Mexico sooner? Work? Elsewhere?

Jump to last reply

We fell in love with Playa del Carmen. Then we travelled to Huatulco and PV and loved it as well. We just loved Mexico, the people especially. So it became part of our life plan over the last few years to travel with a purpose - ours was to decide where we would retire to in Mexico in twently years. Great right? WRONG. We simply do not want to wait that long so were thinking of moving our timeline to 5 years, when our child graduates high school. We need help ... We will have to work. Can we do this? We are not wealthy but rather middle class. We speak english and french, no spanish. We are college educated folk. So here are the first few questions we need help with ...

Is it possible for an expat to earn a living in Mexico, if so where and how?

Telecommuting jobs, how to find legitimate ones?

Are there other english speaking places in Central American we need to consider to improve our odds of expediting our dream?

What are the top tips/things you expats think we need to consider, wish you knew before?
