    I would not buy again. Too many issues with property managers (we went through four), paying bills, the cost of paying the gov't when you sell, and condo issues that I never want to go through again. I will rent long term and found that all of the friends I made there do not own either. They all rent. The rentals never totally made it cost effective as renters were constantly creating problems and destroying things. I love Tulum too. But, never again. We'll be back down for a vacation sometime this year too and I would like to stay either in Tulum or go to Isla Mujeres. I miss Playa but I think I miss what it was not what it is. We really liked the Riu Lupita because it really catered to the Mexican community, was very cost effective and the shuttle to the beach was very easy. Playacar beaches are still gorgeous.

    Things are moving along. We sold our places in Mexico and Colorado and have just moved to Nevada. We're renovating a home near Lake Las Vegas and am working like dogs. We decided that Playa was growing way too much and with the new Hyatt on the beach it will be very crowded. I still like Playacar and we stayed at the Riu Lupita in June when we closed on the condo and used the beach there. Still very nice so we'll do that again. I do miss Playa but I miss it as it used to it's just construction going wild with no thought as to how the infrastructure is going to support it. Not sure if we'll stay in Nevada as we were also looking at a beach community in Florida. I do miss the beach. How is all with you guys? We must be pretty close to you now! California is only a few hours away. Are you going to Playa anytime soon?
