Neil, a comment (maybe too late, but I just saw your question): I have lived in both Toluca and Puebla. My choice would be Puebla. It is farthest to Mexico City, compared to Toluca, but the commute time is probably better. When you come from Toluca you have to go across very heavy traffic areas. Additionally, Pueblas has a better quality of life, better services, I think it is cheaper and has better health services... Toluca is a little colder and also a lot higher in altitude (in case you have problems with blood pressure).

Two teachers retiring fairly soon and sick of the heat of Texas. Our dream was to move to England, but we'd have to continue working to move there. We're looking for a colder place where our pension will go far and we're considering Toluca and Puebla. We like that they are both near a large international airport (Mexico City) so we can travel. Does anyone with experience have any thought or insight that might help?
