While we build the first house on the land we will be renting a house near by.
We have been looking around for the past few days, and ended up with two options that were both tempting. One was "on" the beach, primitive, off the grid, solar wind power and an immense amount of mosquitoes, the other was in town, more spacious and comfortable and with pool access.
While the beach community in Tulum is very appealing, we decided to go with the place in town.
Having moved around so much over the past couple of years I felt that a more homey feel,
with children around to form friendships made more sense. Had it been just Miguel and I, I think we would have certainly moved to the beach, yet this way the children can make connections with other children before we move out to the mangroves in a few months.
Below are a few pictures of the new "home" as well as the surrounding area of Tulum beaches and pueblo.
