Living in Laredo

Laredo, the “Gateway City” to Mexico, is located on the north bank of the Rio Grande, facing Neuvo Laredo across the river. The city is at the western end of the Rio Grande Plain, and expats living in Laredo will experience hot, semi-arid weather conditions in summer, and mild winters. Laredo’s historic old town has Spanish colonial buildings, and includes the Plaza San Augustin, which regularly holds music and dance festivals. Leisure facilities in Laredo include the Lake Casa Blanca Recreational Park, with fishing, boating and water-skiiing on the former reservoir, camping and picnicking, and mountain biking trails. Laredo has three 18-hole golf courses and several museums, so any expatriate living in Laredo will hardly get bored. Nevertheless, becoming a member of InterNations, the global online community for expatriates, will enable expats in Laredo to socialize and network with fellow expats living in Laredo, in the US, or around the world.

Moving to Laredo

Laredo International Airport, located just over three miles from the Central Business District, connects with Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth and Las Vegas. The Quetzalcoatl International Airport, over the border with Mexico, is also nearby, so expatriates moving to Laredo should not have any problems getting there. The El Metro offers various modes of public transport in Laredo, and Greyhound long distance buses operate into the city. As an expat moving to Laredo, negotiating the relocation process can be daunting and stressful. Making contact with the global InterNations community is a good way of finding solutions to specific problems that expatriates often experience. Through networking on the InterNations platform, expats in Laredo should quickly be able to find members who have moved to the United States and the borders with Mexico for advice and useful tips to help you through the process. For more general information, the InterNations’ Expat Magazine contains many articles on a variety of topics, and browsing through is recommended at all stages of relocation to Laredo.

Working in Laredo

The Laredo economy is based on its international trade with Mexico. Laredo has the largest inland port in the US, and with fast interstate access the city is the major transportation location for several leading international haulers. Commercial and industrial warehousing facilities are important employment opportunities in Laredo, with the leisure and hospitality sector also well represented. Laredo has two higher education institutes: the Texas A&M International University and the Laredo Community College. A campus of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio is also a significant employer in Laredo. As an expatriate working in Laredo, being bi-lingual English/Spanish is essential due to the close trade links and proximity to Mexico. Meeting expatriates working in Laredo through the InterNations online community will quickly help you settle in to your new life on the border with Mexico, and members may want to use the platform to organize their own social calendar and meet up with fellow expatriates in Laredo, whether it is dining in the many restaurants in Laredo, or enjoying the night clubs and bars. Watching the Laredo Hearts soccer team, or the Laredo Lemurs playing baseball should quickly break the ice for expats working in Laredo.
