Experiencing a foreign country is not always easy and Mexico is no exception. Connect with Mexico is here to unveil this country's wonderful stories to foreigners who speak English so they can make sense of what Mexicans say and do.


Regardless of whether you live here or not, we will reveal Mexico's customs and mysteries to you in live sessions, online courses, in-persons sessions, or a combination thereof. The choice is yours!


Our mission is to provide foreigners with learning tools that will guide them to apprehend the Mexican spirit. We offer history, culture, news, and thought-provoking ideas to help them revel in this country's people and wonders.


Carlos Navarro established Connect with Mexico after moving to Puerto Vallarta, on the Mexican Pacific coast, in 2016. He was born in the city of Puebla but his studies and work experience have taken him to live in the capital of his country for almost 20 years and briefly in the United States, Colombia, and Panama.

With a degree in Communications from the University of the Americas-Puebla –and college work in the United States as an exchange student – he has worked in television as a news reporter. He also did extensive video production work for the Televisa and TV Azteca national television networks. As a long-time political and media analyst, Carlos studies issues relating to Mexico and how they are covered and interpreted. He has held analyst positions in the Government of the United States, which provided extensive training opportunities, and in the Mexican Government, where he was invited to become Chief of Strategic Analysis at the Office of the President of Mexico.

Much of his work has involved explaining Mexico to foreigners, some of them top government officials and executives from major multinationals; it is a skill he has long cultivated and thoroughly enjoys. Those conversations gave way to a methodology that has proven its effectiveness in helping expats become proficient "in cracking the Mexican code" and eventually guide them to savor "the real Mexico." 


The twists and turns of his career have taken Carlos to do research work in Washington, DC; to participate in academic writings at Loyola University – Chicago; to design video analysis models in the Republic of Panama; to address audiences at Fordham University – New York; and to take specialized communication courses in Bogota, Colombia.

"I so enjoy sharing my country with people from other nations. Unveiling Mexico's enigmas to foreigners and helping them to decode its many puzzles is so gratifying."
