Read Excerpts from past AIM Issues

fffffffAIM keeps its ears very close to the ground to pick up the kind of practical details that will help our readers visualize and plan a stay, whether short, seasonal, or life-long, in the real Mexico.
fffffffWhen we visit Erongaricuaro, on the shore of Lake Patzcuaro we may note the patron saint name with passing interest, but what we really want our readers to know is the name of the local Purepechan Indian construction contractor and the current cost-per-square-foot to build in traditional adobe block (Issue 193: Erongaricuaro, Lake Patzcuaro, Michoacan, building in adobe).
ffffffffIf we're in Morelia, Michoacan's UNESCO World Heritage Center City (Issue 194: Morelia, Michoacan, apartment and housing costs), we talk about what apartments and houses cost. AIM tells readers where they can buy a house lot with water and sewer services for $12,000 just eight blocks from the beach in an up-and-coming Pacific beach community (Issue 192: San Francisco, Nayarit, real estate under $20,000). And AIM can get you safely and affordably into the remote winter hideaway of the Monarch butterfly and put you up for $20/night (Issue 196: Visiting the Monarch Butterfly Reserves, Angangueo).
fffffffAIM has spent 30 years cutting through tourism hype and property developers' sales pitches so when AIM readers visit traditional retirement areas like Lake Chapala (Issue 198) and San Miguel Allende (Issue 205: San Miguel de Allende, rentals and real estate listings), they go armed with the information to think outside the box and can avoid developers whose goal is to give North Americans in Mexico a U.S. experience at U.S. prices.
