Relocating to somewhere near the ocean on the east coast

Can't Post | Private Reply
I've lived above lake Chapala for 9 years and it is time to move on. Does anyone know of locations on the east coast with a higher up view. I find the view of the Caribbean-ocean and sky mesmerizing. From what I've seen of the east coast it is pretty flat. Are there places where you can get higher? Or do you have to go to Belize or a Caribbean island?

The Yucatan is completely flat. The highest elevation that I know of is the top floor of a hotel in Cancun. Second highest is the cliff at the ruins at Tulum but of course you can’t even pitch a tent there.....

We do have an overpass at Moon Palace and in Playa del Carmen. It is flat, even in Belize. I was just in Rosarito, where there are high areas, but its not the Caribbean ocean or view, but heck after 17 years here even that gets old. This weekend will be the busiest weekend of the year. I look forward to having our beach back here in Puerto Morelos. Check out Puerto Morelos. It is between Cancun and Playa del Carmen

The name Puuc as in Puuc route in Yucatec Maya means hills...

The Yucatan Peninsula is fairly flat and low in elevation, generally below 500 feet (150 meters). The Puuc Hills reach a height of 820 feet (250 meters) and extend from Maxcanú to Tzucacab along the southwest border of the state of Yucatan.

Yes, I've been in the Puuc region over around Uxmal, but the OP was inquiring about the "east coast". Over there, and almost everywhere else it's pretty flat.

Then I will correct my statement, Rick. "With the exception of a few hills around the Puuc region, the Yucatan is mostly flat".

How about Veracruz or Xalapa and the Gulf of Mexico
