Real Estate Basics in Mexico

Enjoying a Mexican Pacific beachfront or colonial hillside, you’ve decided to put down roots in Mexico and “save money” by buying.

Invest a significant amount of time before investing in Mexican real estate. Get to know the terrain, its problems and advantages. Work hard to understand the area, the people and the real estate values.

Get the assistance of someone who is familiar with the rules so that you don’t miss nuances. Even though you may have bought and sold real estate in the United States or Canada, the Mexican experience is a totally new.

50,000 Americans and Canadians Live in Puerto VallartaView overlooking Banderas Bay and Puerto Vallarta

You hear the story again and again in Mexico: We went for a visit and ended up buying. There are 500,000 Americans and Canadians who have been lured by the beauty, the serenity and, not least, the prices, to become homeowners in Mexico. One tenth of the Americans and Canadians live in the Puerto Vallarta area.

Most of the time there are no problems. But occasionally press accounts raise questions about just how safe it was to buy land in Mexico. Buyers simply need to apply the same due diligence they would anywhere else. Continue reading “Real Estate Basics in Mexico”

Looking for a Pirate Adventure?

PirateLiving here, I have learned who of the pesky time-share resort salesmen are actually goldmines. I’ve learned who to trust and who knows what. These masterful few I call “Pirates”. (They are simply salesmen who are independent, so they can take profit at any resort or hotel.)

In Mexico, it’s who you know:

A Pirate knows the ropes and can guide your journey. Finding the right connections in Mexico is critical. For the greatest adventure, the perfect wedding, or so that you pocket hundreds of dollars along side him, your Pirate is there to help.

Your Pirate makes sure you receive the maximum cash, wonderful dinners, tickets to shows and events, bottles of liquor, and much more. All of these gifts are given by luxurious resorts just for attending a gourmet brunch and tour lasting 2 hours. Continue reading “Looking for a Pirate Adventure?”

How Tourists Earn $2,000 a Week Touring 5-Star Resorts

In a news article, Rick Slatton, founder of, points out there is a Mayan vacation adventure where tourists get paid just to eat and listen. “Check out resort tours that pay you hundreds in cash at the end of a gourmet meal and 90 minutes,” he says.

More travelers are getting savvy to resort tours, according to Slatton, and he claims to know the Vallarta insiders who can guide you to the most profitable ones every day. Slatton says tourists are making thousands of dollars, along with huge discounts on some of the best accommodations in the world.

“It’s not magic,” says Slatton, “top resorts want your attention for about 90 minutes and they’ll pay you for it. I know certain resorts will pay you very well.”

Slatton says that savvy travelers get handed lots of cash for attending resort previews. How does it work? He gives this example:

One morning, you and your spouse might get picked up from your hotel in a taxi by your friendly guide, and taken to a gorgeous oceanfront Puerto Vallarta resort (such as the Mayan and Velas resorts); you’ll likely be treated to an amazing breakfast buffet in an oceanview dining room; you’ll be shown some luxuriously appointed vacation suites, maybe taken to the penthouse with its panoramic ocean and jungle view and private swimming pool and jacuzzi. You’ll tour the facilities, the beach, the pools, the gardens, the spa, the gym, and you’ll be told about the varieties of recreation from surfing to golf. You’ll then be subjected to a sales pitch. If you say no enough times, eventually your 90 minutes will be up. Then you can take your cash and your free taxi ride back to your hotel, and enjoy a fabulous afternoon and evening in paradise, richer by perhaps $300.

And then you could do it again the next day. And the next. For quite a while. Tourists are known to be earning $2,000 a week touring 5-star resorts.

(Who knows, maybe you’d even find a timeshare or vacation club you’d want to buy! Some of these are tempting.)

Slatton says that there are some qualifications in order to be accepted for “resort previews,” but they vary. “Married couples with at least one credit card between them are very popular. Married couples who already own a timeshare get the best deals. At least one member of a couple should, generally speaking, be between 30 and 70 years old. Singles with a credit card can do well, also, especially gay men. You can make some money with just a debit card.”

According to Slatton, “Don’t worry, the sales folks will never swipe your card, especially since you’re never going to let it out of your grasp.” He suggests [in the news article] that if this way of making money on Mayan vacation in Puerto Vallarta sounds interesting, you should visit his website  to learn more.

How I Got Paid *Hundreds of Dollars* Just to Eat and Listen

When I first arrived in Puerto Vallarta, an airport salesman offered us a room in a 5-star hotel for free.

Money Tree

Little did I know that much more than a night was available!

Within the week we had pocketed almost a thousand dollars, eaten great meals, and explored the area simply by attending three of these “presentations”, and more was to follow.

By the end of the month, our entire extended vacation was paid for and we were way ahead.

I’m no expert on time-shares and vacation clubs and I’m certainly not a buyer. However, this deal is easy to understand. I go, I eat, I tour, I listen for about two hours… then they pay me hundreds of dollars in cash and a free cab.

If You Own a Time-Share, Recoup Some Serious Cash

I heard on the street that the going cash rate is above 9000 pesos (almost US$700).US Currency

That means if you’re a current owner of a time-share, some resorts in the P.V. area will pay you a lot of money just to eat a gourmet brunch and sit through a 2-hour tour.

Sit through more than one, and it quickly adds up.

This seems like an interesting way to recoup some cash from the time-share sellers. After all, promises were made and not kept.

You can earn a few hundred, and even thousands of dollars, in little time and effort. If you’re interested in learning more about how to take advantage of this offer, click Contact.
