Mexico is a large and diverse country, meaning that it has a wide variety of things to offer. Because of this everything depends on what city and state you decide to live and work in. Some cities are quite affordable, but in general if you make around $1 400 USD a month you can save and live a comfortable life. Food, public transport and rent are relatively cheap throughout Mexico.

If you plan to teach abroad in Mexico or anywhere, a certificate of some kind is a huge advantage and distinguishes you from the ‘backpacker teachers’. It will afford you more options to choose from and the ability to land a higher paying job with better conditions.
