This is a blog about my love affair with Mexico. I have visited and lived for a short time in Merida Yucatan Mexico. I have been looking for a place to live in Mexico. Most places gringos live in Mexico the price of property has gone up beyond my comfort level. I think I have found a place to live in San Felipe Baja MX. Here I can lease a lot for about a hundred dollars a month, build on it and be close enough to the border to be back in the “Old Country” in a few hours by road. The beaches are here and the mountains are close. Will it work out ? Who knows?

There are many obstacles to achieving my dream only time will tell if I can achieve living happily once again in Mexico.

    hello, we are coming to Merida in a few months and somebody from Yolisto(when we were looking for furniture) suggested your site because they saw a description of finding cheap furniture in Merida. We couldnt find it in your blog, can you tell us please, where you found that cheap furniture? Thank you very much.

    • I found furniture reasonably priced at Mega the big grocery store I forget what street it is on but it has a parking garage under it and it is HUGE! At that time they had almost everything I needed even a stove and fridge.
      Good luck !

    Are you still in San Felipe? I lived there in the 1970’s and actually did work for Pete and his wife Linda! I am looking for a place to buy in Pete’s camp or rent. I am in the process of ending a 20 year marriage and hope to return to San Felipe. I will turn 69 next month! Hope to hear from you!

    • I live there most of the time and part time in Punta Banda just south of Ensenada. There are several homes for sale at Pete’s Camp just google real estate, San Felipe. You may be surprised at the prices things have changed in Pete’s Camp since you were here last.

        Thank you for getting back to me. I have contacted an agent who has 3 listings at Pete’s. I will probably rent a place after the first of the year for a few months. My divorce will be final in December. In the meantime, I am in Kingman, AZ. I am pretty sure that your place is one that I looked at to buy in 1999. But, my husband didn’t want to live down there. We did look at places in Toto Santos 2 years ago, but for me, it is just too far down. Sounds like you are enjoying the best of both sides of Baja!

        Silly me! I just took a look at more of your postings and saw that the place that I was thinking of isn’t your house! The place that I was talking about wanting to buy in 1999 was an Airstream with a deck built over it and a brick storage building. Seeing your Airstream reminded me of the other place. I have not read all of your postings, but if you could give me a hint as to what year you discovered San Felipe and Pete’s Camp, I would love to read from there. Congrats on becoming a Mexican citizen! I am impressed! Any plans to write a book? I hope to be able to meet you when I am down there! Till then, Lizbeth
