Small Town Living in Mexico What No Starbucks?

6 Apr

When we made the decision to move to Mexico’s Southern Yucatan peninsula, it was for as much of what we didn’t find here as what we did. As I ride my bike around town, I see so many sites that delight my eyes. I don’t want to romanticize poverty, but what you and I might consider poverty has it’s wealth in simple living for many. Enjoy some of the sights of Bacalar as it prepares for an influx of tourists for Semana Santa (Holy Week) leading up to Easter.

    Hola Alex,

    Like the pix a lot, Bacalar appears muy tranquilo.

    Cheers!

      Thanks Bruce. Bacalar is a quirky little town. The powers that be are wanting to ramp up growth and development. The infrastructure def needs some work. Protecting the lake needs to be the top priority IMHO.
