baaah, baaah. Thank you for this condescending post. We, who live in PV, regret that we fail to meet your standards

I agree totally with the above answer.
I don't normally enter into these types of debates.
That said I wish to make the following remarks about the topic being discussed.
I am a retired spec building contractor that made his living in building to markets to fit buyers needs.
All markets are driven by supply and demand.
There is an old standard phrase in being successful in supplying a product and that is full filling the four p's promotion, price, product and place.
By the way I live in Vallarta and to respond to the phrase
(Its just amazing to me the dear price they have to pay for it. 450 000 is a fortune in Mexico. I could buy an entire ranch for that price. I know of beach front plots in Chiapas going for 5000 dollars. Now, there are no whities around to play bridge with, no fancy restaurants and its black sand beach but the locals are interesting and friendly, the seafood is fresh and the sunsets are spectacular. Apples and oranges I guess.
My wife and I first landed in PV 42 years ago when the prices mentioned in the latter were the same here and the population was posted as 12,500 today its 270,000 +
what the author above needs to understand is, none of the change from 12,500 to 270,000 + came cheaply larger facilities such as shopping,medical,emergency services,clean and safe utilities and the list go on and on that is why we live and love it here .
So Memo I second the bash to you, you get what you pay for.
People use to ask me what does it cost to build per square foot and my answer what do you want built in that square foot.
Have a nice day, happy in Puerto Vallarta.
