Hey y'all. My wife and I were down there August of last year and really enjoyed it (I've lived in Houston before, not phased by triple digit heat and humidity). For years I had wanted to look at retiring to the Virgin Islands. PP got me considering something else......Hurricane Irma finished the job. We stayed at a condo at Esmerelda. It was nice and all, but the whole resort thing wasn't our scene. While we were there I drove around and looked at some town homes on the beach in the El Mirador area. 1) What do y'all think of that area? (Yea, I saw the strip club and bar. Not opposed......) Has anyone lived over there? Any special concerns being on the beach? I've read that insurance is an issue and that maintenance is somewhat more complicated. 2) We also liked the Old Port area and being in the middle of everything. Has anyone lived walking distance away? 3) What is the personal saftety situation right now? This isn't a newbie kind of question (I lived in El Paso for 20+ years so Mexico and the borderland is nothing new to me. I speak enough spanish to get by and know about the Federales). A month ago I read that there was increased cartel activity in Sonora that was spilling over to PP. Have y'all noticed anything about that? The buzz as Esmerelda was about the "cruise ship port" and all that it would provide. That sounded too good to be true. We're not looking at this as an investment, but as a long term vacation and eventual part-time retirement locale. Looking at heading that way in mid-March to scope everything out again. Might be a good time for a forum meetup and some tequilla shots, eh?
