Let's see... last night I had two of the best tacos ever from a street vendor for about 40 pesos. We have filet minion perfectly cooked about once a week for about 100 pesos. One restaurant we frequent serves free chips, salsa, ceviche pescado and fruit plates for simply buying a drink or two. Hamburgers, tortas and grilled flat chicken are just down the street and cost a fraction of what you'd pay in the United States.
Just got a starter on my girl's car fixed for what amounts to $30 USD, whereas in the states they would just replace the whole thing and charge you upwards of $300.
Vet bills and dental care cost next to nothing.
I feel safe here. Neighbors look out for one another, and that includes both locals and expats. It almost reminds one of how neighborhoods used to be in the states back in the day.
Services come to you. Need a refill on purified water? The water guy stops by your house every Tuesday and Saturday. Need bread, pastries and delicious sandwiches? They're usually driving around the neighborhood at least once a week, just walk outside your house and they'll stop.
Some of the best snorkeling, diving and beach destinations are within easy reach here. A couple of days ago, it was hot and humid, so I grabbed the dive mask and walked about 50 yards down the street and jumped into a local cenote and spent the afternoon exploring and swimming with freshwater fish.
There is nothing to not like here.
