Mattresses are not cheap in Morelia. If you like foam, it's not easy to find. Mexican standard sizes are individual (39"), matrimonial (52"), queen (60") and king (78"), all of which have a length of 75". If you are tall like me (6'), it can feel a tad short at times.

If you want standard USA size mattresses, Costco is the only place I've seen that stocks them. Colchones BEKY (Camelinas 1964) is a great mattress store. There are two English speaking brothers (Juan and Pedro) that work there and they were extremely helpful. We ended up getting a Mexican queen foam mattress (pretty darn firm!) and we bought a memory foam topper from Costco (American size so we can bring it back with us to Canada).

I stumbled across your blog and I've been enjoying reading it very much. I want to ask, what attracted you to Morelia? How did you decide to move to the center of Mexico all the way from Canada?

Hi Velvet,

My wife and I came down to help her Mother set up her house here in Morelia.

Thanks for your comment!

I just want to add that you made a good choice. Everyday I miss Mi Morelia and wished I was there. I grew up in Colonia Tres Puentes and I went to Escuela Mariano Jimenez. Is nice to look at your pictures and see all those familiar but oh so distant places of my wonderful Morelia. Thanks for sharing them.
