Local people (Mexican) are not a problem. I am more bothered by other expats and their intolerances and attitudes.

I'm glad to read you enjoyed your visit to Merida. I am curious as to how you found the climate. My research indicates that it is extremely humid, with high temperatures. I would love to move there, but am moving away from South Florida, from which I am a native and love, but it is getting waaay too hot for me! Please advise. Thank you.

We have visited twice and with very pleasant exp (food's a bit simple for us but life's still tolerable if you jnow how to cook well), but the city is a very nice and safe place to settle in, retire or just visiting. Unfortunately we have to fly back to our hime country to care for our parents, but if possible would love to retire here. I'm gonna miss Merida a lot :(
