A Quick Update

In 2010, we moved back to the small town in Colorado that I never stopped missing while we lived in Mexico. Now I sometimes miss Mexico, but I wouldn't travel as freely as we did when we were there, camping out in remote areas and so forth.

Mexico today is in a period of change, and in many ways it is more dangerous now. That said, I have plenty of American friends who still live there very happily, just taking a few more precautions than they did in the past.

Just to say!


Visit Expedia…

Expedia is my favorite place to book airfare, and they handle hotels, car rentals, cruises, etc. I like the organization of the site for figuring out what flights I want. Click on the suitcase to take a look.

I was very pleased to win an award for this blog! Even better for you: click through for lists of all sorts of award-winning travel blogs.

Promoted by the Mexican government as a major tourism destination beginning in the 1950s, Acapulco has been very heavily built up with hotels, condos, apartment houses, and homes.

All that building has been at times more than the traffic could bear, and so there are bargains to be found in rentals and in homes to buy. This is a good thing for foreigners who would like to own some real estate in the Acapulco area — often people who love the city and are quite willing to consider buying in various parts of the city.

There’s an interesting phenomenon in how Mexican real estate attitudes compare with American ones when it comes to homes high on hilltops with glorious views. We Americans pay a premium for such locations, but Mexicans — who are less likely to own cars — tend to prefer the places with better access, nearer downtown. So real estate prices in the Acapulco area reflect these cultural differences, to our benefit!

With the population of the city and its environs something over a million people, there are a lot of places to explore if you are interested in renting or buying a house, condo, or apartment in Acapulco.

Another thing about apartments and houses in Acapulco: since it isn’t a major expatriate city like some others in Mexico, that fact helps keep real estate prices more moderate. I’ve seen estimates that hundreds of Americans live in the city, though. All in all, if you love the spectacular beauty of Acapulco, and its sensuous lifestyle, you might want to explore its real estate.

Winters are glorious here, and summers in this tropical paradise are… well, tropical. This can mean hot, humid, and rainy, mainly in June through September.
