Owners, renters, guests and visitors. I am pleased to announce that Puerto Aventuras has a full-time fruit and vegetable store.  We no longer have to only rely on or wait for the Wednesday and Saturday local Farmer’s Market, or cross Hwy 307 to buy produce at Chedraui.

Apostille Requirements

DISCLAIMER: Please note the information and document discussed below was a requirement for our home purchasing process in 2014.  The required documents and the process may be different for you today.

When it was time to finalize the purchase our home in Puerto Aventuras, Mexico, several documents needed to be completed.  One of the documents was a power of attorney (POA), which needed to be legalized and certified with an Apostille.  So, what exactly is an Apostille and how is it used?

It Guilty Restaurant and Hotel – Playa del Carmen, Mexico

I have a confession to make…I love pancakes!  There, I said it out loud.  So, being a pancake-holic sends you on all sorts of adventures searching for the pancake that will make you keep coming back for more. And yes, I can certainly make pancakes at home, and often I do.  But honestly, going out for pancakes just seems like more fun.  Which brings me to It Guilty.

Café Layla Restaurant and Guest House in Puerto Morelos, Mexico

A meal worthy of a Michelin Star

On our way back from a shopping trip in Cancun, I decided to try a new place to eat lunch.  I had been researching on Trip Advisor and found several places that would meet diverse appetites.  After reading through several reviews, I decided on Café Layla Restaurant and Guest House in Puerto Morelos.

RHM SERVICES - Electricial, Painting, General Contractor

We purchased our little piece of the Western Caribbean pie in the summer of 2014.  We allotted a certain amount of money for the purchase of our condo, new furniture and fixtures, and of course, repairs.  But to be honest, we were most worried about the repairs.

I’m keeping this post short and sweet…with only photos.  It occurred to me while I am out walking that I see some interesting things sometimes.  So from time to time, I will post a photo to share with you.
