“We have been IL members for about two years, we get the daily post cards, and like many folks we dreamed of and talked about living overseas.
We have bought several of the owners manuals, all very informative and full of advice that is priceless when you do take the leap……which we just did.
Our favorite part of the world is the Caribbean coast around Playa-del-Carmen, but out of our price range and appreciating faster than we can save.
After reading all that you have had to say about the emerald coast we decided to check it out…. after all, it is close to paradise.
We absolutely loved the people and the whole experience of driving up and down the coast from Chuberna to Dzilam-de-Bravo.
By asking around every time we stopped , we found a 1200 sq ft house with 21 meters of beach front in Santa Clara. We were able to negotiate a purchase price for 680,000 pesos, the house is new construction, unfinished but dried in with basic elec. and water and a good septic system in place.
With the dollar\peso exchange rate at 30 year lows we got a property we thought we could never afford…….THANK YOU IL.
We have 7 years until retirement, plenty of time to get the house the way we want it.”
