hi all, there must be some info out there somewhere but i've yet to find it. i'd like to get an overview of expat locations in the Yucatan please.
i've read a bit about Merida, Progreso, Playa del Carmen (ok, not technically Yucatan). anything else i've missed?
i'm looking for a place to semi retire, snow bird thing, as i still work in the summer months in the US and UK. i've been in Thailand for many years already but ready to leave.
i'm happy with a relatively simple life, don't need big, fancy aircon house on the beach, happy with 1 bedroom place and a fan. i do like to socialize with other expats a bit and my Spanish needs a lot of work, but i don't need to transplant my life in socal or UK to mexico. i do like having good access to western stuff like food and beer, which is one reason i'm kind of crossing Belize off my list of expat places. having said that, i pretty much live on mexican food in cali anyhow, so i'm sure i'll be ok with the local food. i like nature and would like to be close to nice places to take nature walks.
i guess the big thing for me is the expat community. i'm late 50's, computer programmer, English but US naturalized citizen. here in Thailand, my expat buddies are quite a bit older than me and their only interest are Australian sports and complaining about Thailand. i'd like to find people closer to my age and background.
any thoughts about locations i should hang out?
