For those thinking of moving to Mexico, Puerto Vallarta and a few other cities usually pop up on the radar when contemplating prospective destinations for a new home. However, what many people don’t know is that there are many cities on and off the coast that fly under the radar and, for that reason, are spectacular places to live.

We’ve put together a list of 5 cities that you might want to give some thought to when it comes to buying a home in Mexico and starting a new life here:

Guadalajara, Jalisco is the second largest city in Mexico. Aside from being 4 hours from the beautiful coastal spots like Puerto Vallarta and Punta de Mita, it offers an array of culinary experiences, history and culture, top rated education and business opportunities. Unfortunately the city tends to be overshadowed by the country’s extraordinary capital, Mexico City.

Ensenada, Baja California has recently put itself on the map not only as an ever-more popular tourist destination, but also as a surfer’s hub. Plus, it’s also on the map for foodies due to being the home town of the “Baja Med” culinary movement that has come into the international spotlight.

Bacalar, Quintana Roo is the perfect spot for those looking to settle down close to a stunning body of water, but aren’t into the popularity that top destinations such as Puerto Vallarta or Playa del Carmen have acquired. Enjoy a jaw-droppingly beautiful blue lagoon, dense jungle surroundings and the Lake of Bacalar, known for its wonderful shades of crystal clear blues.

Xico, Veracruz is a foodie’s paradise. If you’re interested in learning the traditional ways of Mexican cooking, this is the perfect place to do so. Revel in this charming little town surrounded by coffee plantations, stunning mountains, and beautiful colonial architecture.

There are a great many places not found on the list above that are perfect places to live ‘under the radar.’ Living in Mexico can be a dream come true for anyone who wants to give it a shot, and we’re here to help.
