- We are flying from Vancouver, Canada. What is the best air route for us to take from that destination?

|You can fly through San Francisco/Seattle. Your destination in Mexico is Guadalajara.
What are names of Hotels in the area when we want arrive for our first visit to see the area?
|Guadalajara is the second largest city in Mexico. You will arrive at the Hidalgo International airport, located just 30 minutes away from Lake Chapala and Ajijic... which is where 99% of the expats in the area live.

|I recommend for your first visit to the area to stay at the Nueva Posada. The owner, Michael Eager is a fellow Canadian. You can email him directly at
What other expenses will there be (e.g. property taxes, fire insurance, utility bills, etc?)
|Mexico is a wonderful country, but entirely different than what we are used to in Canada, but we have found it to be paradise for us... 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath homes begin in the $300,000 USD price range.
|Taxes are approximately $200 USD per year.
Heating our homes or using air conditioning is not necessary. Night time temperatures are about 65 (20 Celsius) degrees Fahrenheit. About 80 (25 Celsius) degrees Fahrenheit mid-day. We are at an altitude of 5000 ft above sea level which moderates our year-round temperature.
|You can get fire insurance for you home, but few have it. |
|Expenses after you purchase your home are minimal. Your purchase will be in cash with 10% down when you make the offer. The remainder will be paid at closing. There are no mortgages and all funds are usually sent by wire transfer.
The first step is to come to stay at the Nueva Posada. From there you will be able to walk everywhere. Enjoy the village. Meet people. Go to a Canadian Club meeting. See how you like the area!
I will give you an orientation tour so you can see the market and the types of homes available.
