Sounds like a lot of red tape, lot more complex than home.
It is very different and lots of things are not like "home." But then I once was involved in investigating building a hotel in the Disney area of Florida and the red tape there can compare to Mexico. What complicates it more here is that you are a "foreigner" and don't speak the language and don't know the customs and ways of doing things--really complicates things even more.
maybe I'll work harder here and just relax or do volunteer work when I come down.
Not a bad idea. "Volunteerism" is not common down here. Find a good cause and help out--you will get lots from it.
Its a shame that things are as complex as they are. I'm sure the skills I possess could be a benefit to be learned by under employed local workers. I would think that in an area as hot and humid as the Yucatan there would be a demand for Air Conditioning and Refrigeration workers.
Don't get me wrong, there are lots of refrigeration and AC workers--"fan 'n coil" workers are in big demand in Cancun and other hotel areas as well. These workers make about $300-$400 usd per month doing that kind of work.
I'll probably buy property in the Progresso area since prices look more affordable there than caribbean area.
It is still more reasonable. Let's see how long it takes the speculators as I think the Progreso area will probably have its boom one of these days too.
Thanks again for info,
You're welcome and good luck.
