Guanajuato, Mexico

Overview

Living in the city of Guanajuato is nothing like living the Gringo Landias or Gringo Gulches of San Miguel de Allende or Puerto Vallarta. No information exists in book form to guide the potential expat to a new life in central Mexico. Expatriating to Guanajuato is different and unique. Unlike San Miguel de Allende or Puerto Vallarta, there is not a huge gringo community here that acts as a support buffer for "newbies".

Overview

Living in the city of Guanajuato is nothing like living the Gringo Landias or Gringo Gulches of San Miguel de Allende or Puerto Vallarta. No information exists in book form to guide the potential expat to a new life in central Mexico. Expatriating to Guanajuato is different and unique. Unlike San Miguel de Allende or Puerto Vallarta, there is not a huge gringo community here that acts as a support buffer for "newbies". Nor is English as widely spoken as it is in other areas where expats live. Doug and Cindi Bower spell out the differences between living in Guanajuato and living in other areas where expats have traditionally congregated. They offer a survival manual for the potential expat.

    Waste of time and money

    Don't waste your money on this book. Like everything Mr. Bower writes about Mexico, it's short on information and long on his highly idiosyncratic personal opinions. Poorly edited as well, it's full of typos and misspellings-in both English and Spanish. I've lived in Guanajuato for twelve years, and I hardly recognize this city in Mr. Bower's prejudiced pages. If you want a useful guide to Guanajuato, you're much better off picking up one of the familiar guidebooks, such as Lonely Planet.
