I am gladt that you are a member of our CommUNITY and that you're ready to take the plunge.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Too many people are afraid to do as you are doing because they listen to their friends tell horror stories.
I AM ALSO overjoyed over the NUMBER OF RESPONSES YOU HAVE received from our members.

Yes I believe we have done the right thing. I am moving on Febr. 1 to Playa del Carmen. We just closed on our condo
purchase and I am so happy and exited. We looked at many real estate properties in PV but decided later to buy in
Playa del Carmen. The caribbean ocean and beaches are so beautiful. All around PDC are small fishing villages, Cancun
is just 45min. away and a major international city.
Please update me on your living in PV is going for you
Don't forget those 2 neat Apps from Ortsbo. They translate text messages or allow side by side chats instantaneously translating the conversation. I have found their translation performance and accuracy to be the best right now.
Very smart choice. Just on the point of growing yet still away from mega-tourist centers. We're smack dab middle of Guadalajara and we love it just as "home". The beaches must wait.
•Come by Lolita's if you get to Ajijic, Mexico. We didn't want cold anymore, either! We don't like hot, hot like P.V. so we settled on a beautiful retirement area . We don't need heating or cooling because our temps here are moderate all year round. We have long and short term Apts. and king guest rooms. We are a small Boutique Inn.
The Inn is also for sale.
Mexico, Ajijic ($699,000.00 USA/firm, we have our receipts, some furniture goes with/ask for list ) nestled in the mountains on the largest lake in Mexico. Lolita's Inn/Gallery a boutique Inn with 4 suites, with full kitchens-Living rooms-bed room, 1 master/owner suite with commercial Kitchen that could be used as a resturant. 1 guest room with king bed bath (no Kitchen but can use the outdoor full kitchen) Outdoor hot tub, kitchen, garden enclosed shower. Garage/house keepers area. Great for retirement to supplement your income. Gallery could be used for sales of any kind but we have had Artist openings and gleaned most of our guest rentals from there. Some long term, some short nightly rentals. A remodel that we just used a couple of walls and everything else is brand new. Pipes/electric/steel. Our building is build to withstand an 8. earth quake. Our builder is a structural engineer, so he wanted the best. We have a spiral stair case to the roof in case some one wants to put a mirador. There is a panoramic view of the lake and mts from there.
Web site will be up at the end of July 2012. We have stayed mainly full by word of mouth. Ajijic is the fastest growing retirement area in the world. LolitasInnAjijic.com Mail: Lola@LolitasInnAjijic.com
Hi Kim! I left the US just to backpack through Mexico and Central America- that was 8 years ago! While I have to say I have had some ups and downs living in Mexico, I wouldn't trade it for the world! The quality of life here is second to none!
Its always good to do something you've never done before... it's even better to do something people tell you it's impossible to do. Experience is the best teacher. Having someone to give you advice will possibly save you money. check my blog at http://mexicomystic.wordpress.com PV is a nice place but there are many mexicos...look around and enjoy life.
