Just make sure you don't visit during the summer months or you will think you are in an infierno.

In Topic: Do landlords in TJ check credit on Americans?

I'd be more worried about:

1) horrible air pollution including polluted beaches;

2) horrible rush hour traffic;

3) lack of sophistication compared to other Mexican cities

4) the conservative environment similar to San Diego

than crime.  You'll also find cost of living more than the mainland due to proximity to the border.

Never had anyone ask for a credit check.  As long as you have the $$ for the rent and deposit usually that's all most want.

WHY would you move from PV to TJ...don't think it's going to be more "liberal" or "progressive" than the mainland of Mexico because it is not.

I haven't lived anywhere in TJ or Rosarito where there is no noise; I don't think that exists unless you are on an island or you have a 10-mile perimeter from neighbors; that just doesn't exist in Mexico.

In Topic: Telnor. Great customer service!

Hopefully now that the Mexican telecommunications reforms have passed all the telcom companies will provide better service otherwise consumers will go to another company who offers better service.
