We currently live in Arizona, USA but My wife is originally from Europe and speaks 3 languages (including Spanish). I am tri-lingual as well speaking Spanish semi-fluently. I have a business I can operate over the internet anywhere in the world, which brings in around $30,000USD / year. I also am involved in a medical technology company which has some contracts in the works with Mexican private hospitals. My wife has a 4 year degree in music and currently teaches piano/vocal lessons. We are looking currently to move to Puebla due to the fact I have a very good Mexican native friend whom resides there willing to help us get "settled in" Him and I may also look into business opportunities (starting a business) and helping my wife get a job teaching music (he currently works at a university, his dad owns a convenience/grocery store). Although I have visited and even lived (college studying days) in certain parts of Mexico (Specifically Mexico City, Pok ta Pok suburb of cancun, puerto penasco, etc) I am wondering about the climate, safety of city or certain areas to possibly look for housing within Puebla(renting not buying now) as I have never visited there. Also looking for any expats currently out there to meet up with. If anyone could give me some advice or input into our plan, I would appreciate it immensely!
I think you could live very well on $35K USD per year. I've been living in Oaxaca for the past 3.5 years and am ready to leave this provincial, backward pueblito for the modern, more efficient city of Puebla. I'm in the process of looking for a teaching positiion there, and my daughter plans to expand her business in Puebla's more lucrative market.
Here is a Web site that I found very useful for finding houses to rent. Inmobiliarias, Bienes Raices en México - InmoMexico
Let me know what you find out. We can share information.
