What to expect in Monterrey


Hi everyone,

My future wife and I have recently signed a contract to work in a primary school in Monterrey and are really excited about starting our new lives in Mexico (we are flying out a few days after the wedding in August!)

We just wanted to know what to expect when we arrive in Monterrey. We will be living in Garza Sarda Protected content looks ace, but being in Britain the media conveys Monterrey to be a scene of running battles between drug cartels and that there are horrible things happening on a weekly basis. Personally I think it's got to be a load of rubbish hasn't it?

Any tips or insight from ex-pats would be greatly appreciated as we can't wait to get stuck in and become part of The Mexican culture/customs as soon as possible.

Thank you!
