I will be in Guayabitos just up the road from you in Dec, my neighbor is a builder and gets hardwoods from the jungles of Chaipas. I could ask him if he would sell some, if you are interested send me a message when you arrive...
In my current NOB life I have a number of hobbies that I enjoy, and indeed, have some income generated from them. I'd like to bring at least one of those with me and am curious about how others spend their 'hobby time'.
I love woodworking and will bring some of my tools with me, mostly hand tools and small power tools. I'm wondering about the availability of wood products in Mexico. Do you find good 3/4" plywood? Hardwoods for cabinetry and furniture projects? What tools do you have difficulty finding in your location?
I will bring my glass etching equipment with me and will apply for a working FM3 so that I can sell my 'art' projects. I also do architectural etching; windows, doors, etc. I will probably not bring a large compressor with me hoping to purchase one in PV once I'm settled.
The welding tools will probably be sold here in Seattle before I move down. I figure I can replace those once there if I want to get into that again.
Let me know what hobbies you work with there and what are the challenges you find, if any. I'm building a work room in the new house in Bucerias, small compared to what I have now, but at least I don't have to use the dinning room table!
