No. If I had a do-over in life, I would not have brought my small children here. I feel terribly guilty. - May 2016


I have very mixed feelings. I always say that this would have been so different prior to kids. I think that the negative experiences with the schools kind of changed everything for me, and that I never felt as comfortable here knowing what my kids had experienced. - May 2016

We were there for three years and that was plenty. We don't regret it, but we would be hard pressed to go back. - Apr 2010

It worked for us as a first overseas assignment (especially compared to other places my colleagues went), but it wasn't easy and we were definitely ready to leave after two years. There are enough U.S. amentities to make it an easy first transition, as well as being close to the U.S. for visiting family. Mexico City and the surrounding areas have a lot to offer, and if you are in the U.S. government this is the place to be. The key is to travel, travel, travel. - Jan 2010


Yes. I was nervous about living in such a big city, but the feel of the city is much smaller than you imagine as you carve out your community where you work, shop, play, etc. We love the Mexican friends we made there, and we have many fond memories of our time. We would definitely go back someday, and while it is not the easiest place to live, the overall experience is worth it. - Mar 2009


This is my second time. The answer is yes even though safety and security is an issue. - Nov 2008


Absolutely. It's a wonderful country! - Oct 2008
