Expat Life in Mexico City — Is It Better Than Thailand?

In this video, I share why I think Mexico City could be a great place to live and work, especially for expats. If I didn’t make Thailand home, CDMX would be my next best choice. #mexicocity #cdmx #expatlife

My current base is in Thailand, between Bangkok and Phuket, but there’s something special about Mexico City that draws me in, particularly the neighborhoods of Condesa and Roma.

I explore these areas, known for being suitable for remote work, and talk about why CDMX is an ideal place for expats. The city is friendly to dogs, which means a lot to me, and it’s easy to get around by bike. The parks are full of life, with people enjoying the outdoors, which adds to the city’s charm.

Food is another big plus here, with amazing local dishes everywhere. I take you to some favorite spots, like Tacos Guo, a place with a long family history. Despite the higher costs, areas like La Condesa are safe and full of life, making them attractive to foreigners.

We’ll also look at the everyday culture of Mexico City, from cozy cafes and bookstores to the incredible architecture and historic sites. Even with the challenge of adjusting to the altitude and a different service style, the city’s active lifestyle, safety, and friendly people make it appealing for anyone considering making it their home.

Whether you’re a digital nomad looking for your next spot or just curious about life in one of the most dynamic cities, this video is for you. From the easy-to-navigate streets of Condesa and Roma to the hospitality of its residents, find out why Mexico City might just be the perfect place for expats. Follow me as we discover what makes CDMX a strong candidate for a home base where history, culture, and convenience come together.
