  • Description


    I am an American who has lived in Mexico for 20 years. I live with a German colleague and my adolescent son. We form a cozy ecclectic family. I bought our house some years ago and have fixed it up quite a bit. It mostly just needs some light maintenance. My partner has another property downtown that he rents out that also needs some maintenance.

    What else ...

    There is an international airport in Queretaro which is about a 40-minute taxi ride from the city center. There is (supposedly) Primera Plus bus service to and from the airport. There are two bus terminals in Queretaro. The main bus terminal (Terminal de Autobuses) has local bus service to the city center during the day. This bus terminal is about a 20-minute taxi ride from the city center, depending on traffic.
