•Oaxaca in the Summer

We are looking seriously at coming to Mexico for a month next July. Would you have any suggestions re places? We will probably spend between one and two of the four weeks in San Miguel de Allende. Keep in mind that Nancy has never been to Mexico, but has travelled a lot and Hannah will be 10 and a half. from Jim Jamieson

October 99: Nogales to Lake Chapala

This region has long been a magnet for gringo “snowbirds” and expatriates, and thousands of Americans and Canadians live here, either year ‘round or part-time. It is easy to understand why: the quick access to Guadalajara (a city of millions), moderate elevation, near-idyllic climate, and the beautiful lake make a rather irresistable combination.
