Hi gang, from Mexico

I'm new,of course, isn't this the introduction forum? My wife and I after not much discussion, decided last summer to get out while the getting was good. We put our home on the market while it still had some value, took early retirements and moved the show to Mazatlan, Mexico. I found this site while searching for info on grinding my own beef. USDA is available here but not in ground form. I'm sure I will enjoy being here with you all.

Bienvenido! We live (6 months) on the other coast off of Cancun, an island named Isla Mujeres. My husband grew up in Scottsdale & remembers having a lot of fun in Mazatlan in his younger years. If my husband's work didn't take us back to the States, I'd stay in MX all year.

One funny thing I've noticed on the forum is in the "what are you having for dinner?" thread, the other members eat Mexican food more often than we do.

Have fun with DC!

Hola, Clienta, if the truth be told, our 1st love is Merida and the area there but the humidity was a problem for my wife. It's the cleanist and least traveled by tourists than anywhere we have been down here. We actualy went through immigration for Panama before Mexico. Wow! What stories I'll have for the grandchildren about that adventure!

Hi, pdswife. I'm glad you like Maz. The season has been slow this year, tourist wise and it's hurting the locals that depend on the business. The weather has been cold by our standards 50's at night and low 70's day. Be sure to check out our new Mega when you come. Just across from Sam's. It has to be seen to believed.

Hi, I'm a newbie here too. How lucky of you to be in Mexico year round. My ex-husband is from Campeche. Oh how I miss going down and visiting. I'm waiting to win the lotto and then I am moving down for good!

Wilson42- the humidity is a killer in the Yucatan isn't it! Very pretty area though.
