Can you comment on supermarkets or farmer market availability and selection? Primarily interested in real foods (fruits, veggies, meats). Do you tend to cook or eat out?

We tend to eat in because we, more or less, follow a paleo lifestyle.

Supermarkets are as modern as any... I can't think of anything that I couldn't get.

Farmers markets - here we call them 'Mercados'. There is a huge one about a kilometer from us that has so many vendors that they literally flow out onto the street. And here most things are in season all year.

There are small Mercados everywhere. In most areas, they'll close off the street for one day of the week and setup shop. Kinda nice actually.

Everything's always fresh.. that's for certain.

As far as eating out... There are more eating places per capita than I've ever seen. Some high-end, most are small Mom n' Pop establishments. Endless variety, although Ethnic restaurants will be a problem.

Too bad you sold you bike. Sold mine in Canada and just bought one here.

While Cuernavaca is a great place to live and see, it doesn't see itself as a 'tourist' destination.

It has a lot of history, and has some historical sites, etc., it might not offer everything a tourist likes... beaches, etc.

When I went to Veracruz last year, I had the same experience. Nice place, but other than the large fortress San Juan de Ulķa, it was just a typical port city.

That looks like a classier joint than Los Arcos! Disfrute!
