Mexi-newbie

My first trip out of the U.S. was to Mexico. Riviera Maya. Loved it !!!! Absolutlety plan to go back. I would love to leave the chaos here in the states and move there if I knew of a way to make a good living there! I plan to visit this site quite often and hope to make new friends along the way!! Life is good!!!!

Hmmm . . . I keep wondering how foreigners make a living there. My hubby and I contemplate moving somewhere warm ALL the time. Canada is frightfully cold this time of year.

I tried talking the hubs into moving there as well. I don't do cold weather at all . But alas, he said my being a beer wench was probably not as profitable an idea as I'd like to believe .

Welcome to the site!

Thanks for your input. I'm actually at home right now since we just experienced the worst blizzard I have ever been through here in S.W. Missouri!!! 20 inches of snow over the last 2 days, anad expecting below zero temps until Friday. My girlfriends car is buried in the snow 2 blocks away. We're sitting in front of the fireplace searching classifieds. There is actually an online version of the yellowpages for the Caribbean which has a lot of good info. I'll share any findings with you all.

Have a sunny day!!! Jdub

Welcome!! I haven't been real active on this forum until recently.

What I can tell you is that I have never been to a more friendly or helpful online forum in MY LIFE!!!

These people are not only polite, but are willing to go out of their way to give advice and suggestions, even a phone call if needed!!

I hope to be able to meet a few of them very soon!! I am going to start a blog soon chroniclling the new adventure that I am finally allowing my life take me on.

I will know in 14 days from now if Playa is going to be my new home for awhile!!

There are plenty of threads regarding moving to Playa and finding work.

To summarize.......keep your day job. It's not that easy...otherwise most of us would have done it already!

I don't want to rain on your parade though. Check it out for yourself and good luck to you!
