Hello From Banderas Bay Mexico

Just an introduction: I have lived for 14 years on Banderas Bay, which includes Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. For nine of those years, I lived aboard a 28 foot cutter in Nuevo Vallarta Marina, with occasional sails up the coast. Five years ago, my wife and I built a house in the village of Jarretaderas, Nayarit, near the marina. For the past 12 years, I put some of my mechanical engineering training to use by servicing and repairing boat refrigeration and air conditioning. I also give a seminar on that subject each year to the cruisers heading for the South Pacific. In the summer, I live near Denver, Colorado.

Aloha Mayball,
Welcome aboard! Good to have you here. You give seminars on just what I need however I won't be your direction for quite a time.
Kind regards,

Welcome, I am envious of your life. I lived in Punta de Mita for a while teaching surfing. Please keep us updated about the area.

Hello, Mayball.

Welcome to the Forum. Some of our members have posted questions about how to make a living while cruising. I'm sure they'll be interested in your experience working in Mexico.
