Well since I keep getting asked the same question, over and over - Why Mexico? I thought I should divulge just a few of the many reasons.....
1.) Obviously the climate. Cancun is known for having very nice weather year round, and believe it or not but it is nice that it still gets a bit cooler in the winter months...cooler than the pacific side, not cooler like Canada!!
2.) Work life balance. In Canada it is very hard to manage time between work, home, and fun! Actually, I find myself barely doing anything but work anymore. I'm too young for that!!! When I lived in Cancun 3 yrs ago, it was amazing. We'd have weekly bbq's with friends and neighbours. I WANT A LIFE!!!
3.) The music. I looooooove listening to the music. I love that I used to hear the street noise through my bathroom window when I lived on La Luna. Was it always pleasant? Not w/ a hangover, hahaha, but I love the life that I can hear.
4.) It's Cancun, not Tijuana where I'm living. I still have Wal-Mart, Costco, Home Depot, etc...
5.) Health care in Cancun is really, really good! I've never had to wait to see a Dr. and it only cost me $200 pesos for a visit!!!
6.) Accessibility. My family and friends can always come and visit. There is an international airport, and tons of places for them to stay if they don't want to stay with us!
Okay, I could go on and on, but just wanted to answer a few of the questions that most of my friends have been asking me!!!
I'm sure I'll have a few posts of all the things I hate one day too!! I'll complain about the funky smells, the bugs...ohhh how I hate the bugs. For now, I'm remaining positive!!
