I have never been there, but I have read good things about it. There is an American who has lived there for many decades - Roy. If you do a search on Jalapa Roy, you will find his website. He is a fountain of information about that area

There are two times in life to break the mould: when you are young and without dependents and when you retire. I say give it a go, just don't get into anything that will be difficult to unwind (like a house).

I know of Roy Dudley for many years. He is a busy little fellow.

A friend worked in Jalapa years ago and raved about it, starting me looking for more info.

Jalapa is a place we plan to visit. Part of our plan is to do quite a bit of exploring during our first few years there. It is a large, varied country

I have this in mind as well. Hard sell to the DW, though.

Best of luck and please keep us posted.

I am developing a taste for shirt-sleeve weather. Without arctic gear over it.
At about-40 it doesn't matter whether its Fahrenheit or Celsius

It is the one temperature that is the same. -40 C = -40 F. So, No; it doesn't matter!
