"I've known Dave for over 30 years. As a Mexicano who truly loves Mexico, I've been most impressed that Dave shares a similar passion for this wonderful country. Dave and I have taken many trips to Mexico together, both to Baja and the mainland, and his knowledge of both is impressive. If I have any questions about Mexico, culinary or otherwise, I know that Dave is someone I can rely on"

I have been working in Mexico for the past 12 years and feel confident I know the “best of the best” in terms of who’s who south of the border. David Simmonds is indeed the best of the best. His infinite knowledge and experience with traveling in and moving to Mexico is well known. David understands the ins and outs better than anyone in the business and I have used him as a professional reference on countless Mexico projects. I have also personally referred friends and business associates to David for consultation and all have returned with rave reviews. Respected in all communities on both sides of the border, David Simmonds is the definitive “go to guy” for anyone interested in Mexico.

Having worked as a journalist in Mexico for over a decade I have gotten to know who's who in our industry. David Simmonds has always been an impeccable source who has excellent contacts in and around Mexico, and is very highly regarded in many circles. Any advice he dispenses will only be done so after extensive research and confirmation; I trust him implicitly and have no doubts about his status as a Mexico expert.

David Simmonds was an essential source of information as I was searching for a property to purchase in Mexico. His vast knowledge of Mexico culture, laws and real estate has been a tremendous help to me, and I recommend that anyone thinking of buying in Mexico contact him.

Well-connected and fluent in the ways of the world south of the border, Dave knows how to make things happen in a culture that can move frustratingly slow for outsiders. Move to Mexico is a wonderful resource for anyone moving or considering a move to Mexico.

“David Simmonds is a true Mexicophile. His keen eye, sharp wit and social conscience are evident in the fine body of work he’s been producing for the past 15 years. Via his excellent newsletter and escorted tours, David has done so much to help build understanding about Mexico, while humanizing the Mexican people for armchair travelers around the world.”
David Simmonds doesn’t just promote Mexico, he has as much knowledge of the country as any Mexican citizen. And it’s not just his knowledge that’s impressive, but his love for the country. Thank you David for promoting Mexico
as well as you do!
