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.

Buying a house or condo in Puerto Vallarta

Why would you want to have a home in Puerto Vallarta? Perhaps because of the stunning beauty of the city. Perhaps because the foreign community there includes a lot of young, hip writers and artists. Or because there are a number of retirees who appreciate the good health care in the city. There are thousands of foreigners of all ages, in a community that’s known to be open and gay-friendly.

Puerto Vallarta real estate offers magnificent views of the ocean from many of the hills that the city is built upon. In much of Mexico, homes near downtown sell for more because of the convenience, but that is less the case with houses in Puerto Vallarta, due to the foreign influence here. Still, take your time and look around. You’ll find all sorts of places and all sorts of prices. Rent for a while, perhaps. Visit Gringo Gulch, named for the chic people who settled here when Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton made Puerto Vallarta famous.

There is an elegant gated community with a golf course north of Puerto Vallarta, called Nuevo Vallarta. Beautifully done, prices are upscale– but houses there might be completely out of your reach back home! It also offers condos as well as a yacht marina from which you can take a water taxi to Puerto Vallarta

Not far south of Puerto Vallarta, you could look at Mismaloya, which is becoming developed. Retirees and others are buying and building houses there.

Throughout the Puerto Vallarta region, million-dollar homes (and up) are offered, as well as much more modest dwellings. PV has a long-established multiple listing service.

Commercial real estate in Puerto Vallarta

Development continues in PV. New hotels, department stores, movie theaters, and other commercial buildings offer opportunities to investors. Not for the naive, but if you know what you are doing, you could take a laptop and have a working vacation exploring the options for commercial real estate in Puerto Vallarta.
