So I may have given the illusion that it is all play no work. Not at all. We are working, raising kids and paying bills just like everyone else. We are just doing it in Mexico.
What makes this Move to Mexico possible is that I am able to work remote. Working remote is made possible by technology!
Here is how we are set up.
Vonage USA Phone Line - We have set up a Vonage line which is connected via the internet. We have the same area code and phone number we had in USA. It dials just like we were sitting in our USA house. I can dial USA conference call numbers without worrying about an international connection. The cost is $25 US per month with no US long distance charges.
Telemex Internet & Mexico Phone Line - Our internet connections and Mexico phone are through Telemex. Telemex is pretty much the only option around. Property Manager got it all set up for us before we arrived. So far internet works great. No disruptions and speedy. The cost is $100 US per month.
Wireless - Husband set up 3 lap tops and printer with our wireless router from USA. Works like a charm. Can connect from upstairs "office" (i.e. Master Bedroom) or back porch.
USA Mobile Phone - We canceled Husband's line. I still have my AT&T iPhone account for when I am in USA. It is very costly to talk, text and email while in Mexico even with international add-on.
Mexico Mobile Phone - On list of To Dos for Husband. Not really necessary but seems prudent from safety perspective. We only have 1 car here so if one out and something happens - yada yada, yada ...
I work every day just like in USA. I am over the top busy with work right now so looking to get some balance within next 2 weeks in this area of my life too. Wish me luck.
