The Space for Expatriates
Please don’t become smug just because you’re in Mexico and think that the debt crisis will not affect you. You will be especially impacted if you are Real Estate Salesperson or you have property for sale. Everyone’s expectations for the upcoming tourist season are always more optimistic than the year before. These expectations may not materialize this season.…

Today I am in the heart of the famed hotel zone in Cancun. Beautiful beaches are the main attractions but there is so much more. This is a fun little area with a lot to do and see. And all within walking distance. There are two major shopping plazas. The first is Plaza Kukulcan. Here you will find Luxury Avenue, a huge store lavished with all designer brands. It is like a mall within a mall. And if you are hungry from all the shopping, stop by Ruth Chris steak house to recharge…Continue

Cancun is well known for its hotel zone. With beautiful beaches and grand hotels bringing visitors back time and time again. The northern section is known for shopping and nightlife. There is always something to do. What if I want to live in the hotel zone but with a little less vacation feel? The southern area may be a perfect choice. I recently moved to this area to be close to the action but far enough to feel like home. The first morning I woke up early and took a walk on my “new” beach.…Continue

In 2010 we opened our new B&B, 'Posada Tacubaya'. Situated on part of the historic property of the former Mint of northern Mexico, this renovated six bedroom property is now stunningly beautiful. We see many property owners from Puerta Vallarta since this is a great place to overnight coming or going from the U.S. on Toll Road #15. Turn-off at Navojoa (right at the Toyota dealership) and head east on a wide, safe highway only 35 miles. You'll be glad you did. …Continue

Hello to All,
Today I sent out a query to all of the members of the classified ad website inquiring as to the condition of the Real Estate market in their area. I gues the results were not shocking. They were pretty much as I had expected in all parts of Mexico. Where it was different it was because of the individual agent and not the existing market conditions. I'm referring to our own Michele Kinnon. She seems to be swimming upstream and doing a good job of bucking the…Continue

This is the first article in a series about getting to know the beachfront neighborhoods of Cancun in more detail. Cancun is merely 4 decades old and has many untouched areas. The miles of beaches hold little known secrets that few venture out to discover. We start in the northern end of Cancun. Ilsa Blanca is not actually an island but a peninsula. The area of Isla Blanca sits 30 minutes north of downtown Cancun but feels worlds away from the hustle and bustle. This quiet beach is…Continue
