We’re a family of 4 (2 kids: 1.5 + 5 years old) + 64 year old grandma. We’ve been contemplating moving to Mexico for a while, and finally putting some things in motion. We always had our heart set on Mex City (we’ve been there a bunch of times), but recently a lot of people have told us to look into Guadalajara. What draw us about el DF are ALL the fun stuff to do as a couple, as a family, and just all the cultural touch points it has to offer. Plus the museums and kid activities. We’ve never been to Guadalajara (we’re planning to spend 3 weeks in July/Aug). My questions are: what are the biggest pros/cons of both cities for a family? What kid activities/parks do we need to check out in both cities? What neighborhood would be ideal for us to stay in Guadalajara? Keep in mind we want to be in a community that’s more local than expat. I’m a native Spanish speaker.
