Checking Out Mexico

Ok, so I'm in Georgia til June 15 or 20ish, then to Istanbul for three weeks, then back to Georgia mid-July, and then off to the U.S. for a couple of months.

And then .....

I'm thinking Mexico to teach English.

Have started brushing up on my Spanish here.

My Mexican location wish list:   
  • Mild temps
  • Population less than 500,000 
  • Relatively low cost of living
  • Easy to get to from the U.S. via plane or plane + reasonable bus ride
  • Job opportunities at livable wages
  • Location with some natural or cultural charm

Over at Dave's ESL Cafe, I've begun some research and have gleaned some ideas to start with:
  • Cuernavaca
  • Zacatecas
  • Toluca
  • San Cristobal
  • Oaxaca
  • Queretaro

It'll be fun to consider the merits of each city in the coming months.
