    Ha ha. It's like musical chairs but most people think the music will just keep playing. Making USDs or any currency for that matter and converting to something of actual value that can't drop to zero is the right direction for me.

    great video

    I'm looking to buy real estate in Puerto Vallarta. Playa Del Carmen is really nice, though. Seems a bit overpriced, but I suppose that's central tourist territory areas. Do you do affiliate marketing?

  4. Devon Wayne

    Yes you can buy real estate.
    Buy it from a Trust, if near a border or sea. You cannot own farmland.
    Having a mexican wife or partner makes it a lot easier.

    Hi. I am a retiring RN seeking to buy inexpensive land (1-2 acres) where I can park a small container home or trailer to live in. I would like to be away from cities, small villages OK. I would like a forested area with very moderate climate (I've heard that's 3000-6000 ft altitude.) I will spend substantial time in Africa so need a very modest place for permanent residence. Is this a crazy Idea? What is the labor cost of workmen who do remodel jobs? Thanks.

    Great video…along with all your other videos. I'm new to your channel. I'm thinking about an eventual move to Playa in the near future. But I would like to come down and check out the area to see if it's a good fit for me. I would like to rent for a few months before I invest in property. Is there a good time of the season to check out rentals? Can you recommend some reputable resources to help me when I get down there? And do you rent or own? What do you think about bringing your own car to Playa? Or do you think owning a scooter is a good idea?Thanks for the help Steve.

    Do you have to buy a house using a Mexican Bank Trust if you've sold your house in Canada and can pay cash for your house/condo in Playa de Carmen.

  12. Luis Sousa

    B.S. In the U.S. "your real Estate agent" makes money by having you spend the most money he can have you spend. They make a percentage of how much you buy…Do not look into "Gringo" destination places, look into places you can buy a house close to the beach for $ 30, 000 dls.

    How good is your spanish? I want to relocate either to Mexico or the Caribbean.
