I'm the one who left the review complaining about how people don't speak English 2-3 months ago. I think it's only fair to leave another review as I projected a pretty negative overall picture of the place. I came back a second time and boy, I'm glad I did. The language barrier didn't disappear, but I came with a different mindset and made efforts to learn some basic Spanish. Being able to explain how you want your coffee even makes a huge difference. Mexican people are kind and warm-hearted.

I have only been to a couple of digital nomad spots around the world, but I must say I have been disappointed with PDC for several reasons. I am a coworking space kind of girl and even though there are a few here, they are all not great. Especially if you compare them to the spaces in Bali Canggu/Ubud for example. In PDC it was all about choosing the lesser „evil“ for me. They are okay, but I didn‘t feel the same community vibes or very inspired in these places. The choices of healthy foo

I live in San Miguel de Allende, and have for about 10 months. I've found it very family-friendly, with a lot to do: horseback riding, fantastic restaurants, bars and dancing, hot springs, art shows, yoga meet-ups, etc. As well, the hospitals in nearby (1 hr away) Queretero are fantastic -- if you go private. There are a LOT of expats here, though most of the younger people are from Mexico City. The weather is the closest I've ever come to being perfect all year: low humidity, and highs of 25-3

For the most part, pretty amazing. The beaches are usually not overcrowded, and the natural scenery is pristine. It's very walkable, and there are tons of great restaurants on nearly every block with reasonable prices. I came in mid-November, and it was still uncomfortably warm and humid then, even at night, so beware if you struggle with heat. The evenings started to get cool and pleasant in late November/early December. This is Mexico, so I was expecting it to be gritty, but it was worse tha

Oaxaca is one of a kind. It's a gorgeous city, incredible culture and the best mexican food around. It's cheap, clean, walkable and has quick wifi. I fell in love with this city. In my opinion, it has a Chiang Mai vibe except smaller and cleaner.

Queretaro is a fantastic cheap and liveable city. Need some spanish here but the wifi is fast and I'm catching up on my budget from traveling around very quickly. Staying with friends in more of a neighborhood but the downtown is charming, super clean and walkable. Also, a great place to stock up necessities, I can get all of my "brands" here at a regular price. Enjoying indulging in some home luxuries in this city. No party life here really, super safe, heavy large suburb vibes.

I have stayed in Cuidad de Guanajuato on two separate occasions in 2020 (February and December) for a total of about a week. Overall, I spent around a month in Guanajuato state in 2020. In that time I spent most of my time in El Tigre, Xoconostle, and Yuriria. We really fell in love with Cuidad de Guanajuato. Having a major university in the city really changes the atmosphere and makes communicating a lot easier than in the rural areas like El Tigre. I was able to get by on my “two year old

Spent one month living and discovering Guad and area. Walked, bussed and Uber when necessary. NEVER felt unsafe. My Spanish is very basic and yet was able to communicate. Friendly and helpful people! Amazing for such a large city!🌺❤️

This place is a lot of fun, has beautiful beaches, and gives easy access to amazing cavern diving. That said I wouldn't recommend it, overall. You have two parts, centro and hotel zone. Hotel zone is essentially as if Bali existed in the US, but inexplicably is somehow in Mexico. Roughly 3-4x the price of Bali and the rest of Mexico, almost no real mexican food (the best reason to go to Mexico) in the hotel zone, a bunch of beach hipsters (Tuluminati), relatively terrible internet (some 10Mbps+

I've stayed in Merida for about 10 weeks now. It's a cute sleepy city with a good amount of restaurants and museums/history if you're into that sort of stuff. I cannot speak about the nightlife because I'm here during Covid times and the lockdown is real. The city is flat as a pancake, so if you're into cycling, this is a great city for you. The heat in this city is oppressive starting in March through the end of October. I've asked many locals why they come here and their number one respons

Good city to live in, welcoming to foreigners. Lived here for decades and always felt welcome by the people. Cost of living is low, only negative thing is that it is relarively new, with no real historic areas, and there isn’t as much to do as there is in other larger cities.
