Tips and Advice on Mexico from Your Fellow South African Expats

Obviously, expat life in Mexico goes well beyond shipping your belongings and taking care of red tape. Socializing with fellow South Africans is an important facet of living abroad and can be a huge stepping stone in getting to know the Mexican mentality and way of life. South Africans in Mexico are a part of our community, calling cities such as Guadalajara, Monterrey, Mexico City, and many others home. You can use InterNations to look for fellow South Africans in Mexico City, for example.
