I have a degree in L.A. Affairs from the University of Texas (Austin) and have lived in Acapulco for almost 20 years. I go up to Mexico City and the surrounding area regularly. I have also visited Taxco, Puebla, Veracruz, Cholula, Cacaxtla, Oaxaca, Monte Albán, Palenque, Chiapa de Corso, Chichen Itzá, Cozumel, and Isla Mujeres, La Habana, Guatemala and Tikal. I'd be glad to try to answer questions about these areas.

Experience in the area

I first came to Acapulco as a child. I vacationed here regularly during the 60's and 70's, bought my present apartment in 1990 and moved here permanently in 1995. I was a Teaching Assistant in Spanish at the University of Texas before medical school and after I moved here I taught English as a second language for ten years at a private academy.

I am not sure you have clear title to this property. You speak of 'fees' but this might mean the bank holds the property in trust (fideicomiso), that you are paying property tax (predial), or both.

Of the three, I think you'd be happiest in Guadalajara. But since you say you're from the Caribbean, I'm guessing that you'll be coming through Veracruz anyway.  Keep going, and take a look at Puebla,
