I’m closing in on what for me is an important goal…a three-bag lifestyle. My wife Suzan and I are writers, which means we can work from anywhere on the planet with an internet connection. And for the past 15 years we’ve been doing just that...
Stretching from along the eastern edge of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, from Cancún in the north to Tulúm in the south, the Riviera Maya is one of the world’s top vacation destinations.
“Hey, where do you want to go eat tonight?” was not a question we asked each other much when we moved to Cuenca, Ecuador six-and-a-half years ago. It wasn’t that we weren’t hungry.

Looking out my window, I watch a beautiful sea grape tree and a huge almond tree swaying in the breeze. A slight distance away, I can see the incredible turquoise of the Caribbean Sea, and I feel so lucky.
If you visited Playa del Carmen 10 or 15 years ago, you wouldn’t recognize it today. This once sleepy seaside town on Mexico’s Riviera Maya used to be primarily known as the place to catch the ferry to the island of Cozumel just offshore.
