10 Rules for Travelers


to abide by

It doesn’t matter where you go.

Nor does it matter whether you’re at home or abroad, in the U.S. or in Mexico.

Being safe means exercising common sense.

Here are ten essential rules to remember

1.) Stay on the well-trodden paths and byways.

2.) Stay where there are other people around.

3.) Leave your big flashy jewelry at home – preferably in a safe.

4.) Keep your money holder, whether it be a purse or a billfold, secured at all times.

5.) Keep your eyes open and be very aware of your surroundings.

6.) Carry only small amounts of cash.

7.) Always keep your passport on your person, securely.

8.) Be polite. You’re a guest.

9.) Don’t be a stereotypical “foriegner”. Don’t show off, be noisy and obnoxious.

10.) Respect the culture.

Remember, these rules are important to follow no matter where you travel.  Be wise – follow the easy rules.

    I’ve been working with Coldwell Banker in my area for 9 years selling residential properties.

    I like the idea of moving to Mexico but want to work maybe a few days a week.

    Can I do this? What’s involved?

    Hi Bob – sure – that’s the profession most N.A.’s take upon their move to Mexico. Just find a good, reliable Broker and see what they offer. The real estate profession is just starting to be regulated in Mexico.

    You have to remember that Mexico doesn’t have the security and law enforcement of America. If you’re moving down there for retirement many will assume that you will be easy to take advantage of.
