Hi Michele, my husband Roy and I met up with you back in late 2009. We are wanting to return and rent a nice place for up to 1 year but at least 6 months, this does change a lot if the internet is not good and reliable. Currently 15KBS is great for what we need, we are thinking minimum 10KBS may do the job. Roy will be working while there from a canadian based company with out anything to do with Mexico.
A safe area, clean, a pool, reasonable rent, one bedroom with a space to work for Roy and walking distance to 5th and the beach is ideal.
The internet is the most important thing, we must know that roy can work and this determines how long we can stay. November looks like the time we would like to arrive, this should be enough time to get everything in order including knowledge of the Mexican regulations.
