Jason Seeberger, I moved down here recently, but have been coming for 30 years. I'm still learning, but am willing to help you out!
#JohnT in El Paso on Mar 03, 2015 :
Hey Bill (6/18/14), first, sorry about your injury and thank you for your service. I'm a vet too. I'm thinking of living in PV. I've visited 4 times with my MX wife and her 4 girls. My spanish is good (I only knew 3 words when I moved from Chicago to E.P. - tacos, burritos y enchiladas. I'm alone now and want to live in a spacious 1 BR somewhere around Uruguay (I think), higher up with a view. I don't need to be with gringos so a quiet MX neighborhood is desired (quiet? in MX?) I don't want a dump and I'm picky about things but I lived in Juarez for 5 1/2 yrs. I'm still self employed but do business over the telephone and Internet (100 mbps) with clients in USA and other places in the world. I want to slow down and get off the phone. The only real concern is finding suitable living facilities. I can detail more what I need on a later post. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

i want to know about this city wabt to live there puerto vallarta w please help me okay
#bill on Jun 18, 2014 :
I lived in PV for 7 years. I would suggest you take a 6-8 month trip and make sure PV is where u wanna be. I was in the golf industry and spent a lot of time with retirees, both local and international. It was quite common for a member of my Golf Club to decide, after 6-8 months, that Mexico just wasnt for them. I STRONGLY suggest that you have at least a 50-60% profeciency in Spanish and are willing to take classes and become comfortable conversing/reading Spanish. 90% of the people who only lasted 4 months to a year did not bother to learn Spanish. PV is a wonderful town and the area is just beautiful. The true treasure, however, is the local people. Im from a small town in SW Virginia and spoke 0 Spanish when I first arrived in Mexico. I made it my business to learn Spanish and it made my time there special. Like a dumb azz I went back in the Military after 9-11 and was injured in Afghanistan. I hope to soon be back on the beaches of PV! Good Luck, keep an open mind and leave your watch at home, lol.
