I live in the northern coast of the Yucatan, in a town called Progreso. Is not touristic at all since Cancun is 300km away and the sea there is like a pool year round. Here is not as pretty, but of course much cheaper, good wins, decent marinas, and for retired people, wonderful homes on the ocean, that rent very cheap for the entire year except for summer. Many Americans and Canadians come here and is like living among locals, but with the option of going to the mall if you want. Look up on google Yucatan cruising guide, I have a few suggestions there.

Re: Advice on Mexico

Can anyone tell me about Ecuador and Costa Rica? We're seriously considering retiring south, but we really want a special situation: a small home at a high enough altitude to be pleasant year round, but within easy driving distance of a secure marina. I want to be near my Cape Dory 36. Somewhere I read that boats that stay too long in Costa Rica have to be "bonded" but I don't know the signifigance of that. I don't know the rules for Ecuador either. Why is this information so hard to find? I've emailed marinas, yacht service facilities, and real estate agents. Not one has responded...
