 Dear Hola All, .

You may have noticed by now that Mexico Living is no longer free. We want an opportunity to explain.

Here is the challenge: The popularity of Mexico Living outweighs our advertisers and subscribers ability to cover all the costs involved in producing a FREE guide for every person that wants and deserves it. We are getting two to five new subscribers a day online and many more from events like the Blues & Arts Fiesta, and the demand is increasing across the board on both sides of the border.

All of us at Mexico Living work very hard to produce a publication unlike any other; unique in size, quality, content, frequency and market reach. We currently reach over 25,000 readers every month, across multiple mediums and the largest physical distribution area including Rosarito Beach, Ensenada, San Felipe, Puerto Peñasco and San Carlos.

With U.S. distribution nearly completed, we are going to be required to print several thousand more without the support of advertisers in the areas of distribution like San Diego, Riverside, Phoenix, Yuma, Palm Desert, etc.

The challenge with being free is not knowing where they go, only how fast they're gone. We want readers to find us anytime and anywhere, and we want our advertisers to reach as many potential customers as possible. We cannot do any of this unless we go to paid circulation. It has become impossible for us to produce enough simply on advertising dollars alone.

There are lots of free newspapers, and plenty of glossy quarterly or annual magazines, and all of them add to our communities and help tourism, but none of them are like Mexico Living. We are the only high-quality guide produced monthly, distributed across Baja California and Sonora and soon the southwestern United States.

We need to bring our communities into their communities. We need tourists and U.S. residents to know Mexico is a safe country with incredible people, community and opportunity. We need to showcase our part of Mexico as a great place to live, work, play and invest.

Our goal is to have distribution in every major bookstore across the southwestern United States within five hours driving distance of any of our northwest communities and all possible locations from the border of California and Arizona to the southern destinations in Baja California and Sonora.

Here is how you can help us achieve this goal:
  • Do you have a favorite retailer on either side of the border that caters to customer that would benefit from the guide? Contact us and we'll help get it there (anywhere in US, Canada and Mexico, some requirements may apply.)
  • Do you have a travel group or organization that would benefit from Mexico Living? Contact us and we will mail a copy to each of them directly.
  • Do you need promotional copies for your office or trade event? Contact us we can provide you with discounted guides and additional promotional material.
  • Do you need a local fund-raiser? Mexico Living has incredible fund-raising opportunities. Subscription campaigns, direct sales, etc.
  • Would one of our articles or features help you in your business? Mexico Living will provide you with sales sheets containing our article with your company logo and contact info. We can provide it in PDF format, or in printed format.
We've gone to paid circulation to help us all; us being you, our reader and advertiser, and all of us at Mexico Living. We all are visitors, residents and business owners in northwest Mexico.

If you're an advertiser, thank you for supporting us and we hope you'll continue to support us through this transitional period. We promise to provide the best marketing value and to achieve all our goals together. We've outlined some of your new benefits as an advertiser and have some additional services to help you achieve your advertising goals.

If you're a reader, thank you for reading Mexico Living and supporting our advertisers and communities. We hope you'll continue to see the value of the guide and will continue to grow with us. After all, it's only the price of a beer and far more filling and longer lasting. We also have new reader benefits and gifts too. 

The important thing is this: to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become. ~Charles Du Bos
