We are thinking about retiring to the Yucatan area.
Is it expensive?
By and large, life in the Yucatan Peninsula is a lot simpler
than life in the United States. Thanks to this fact, things also
tend to be cheaper there as well. People who choose to live in
the Yucatan can expect to live on a frugal budget or could also
live on a budget that is the same as they have now.
It really depends a lot on what people want to do and how they
choose to live. For example, there are large grocery stores in
the area, but if you want to go the more simple route, you can
also save money by simply buying the more simple food items at
the local outdoor market. Basically, the Yucatan is as expensive
as you make it.
Where is this infamous crater that I’ve heard about?
Well, there is a reason that the crater is considered “infamous.”
The reason is because there is actually no crater there. It is
considered to be an invisible crater. The theory is that thanks
to particles and dust found in the immediate area, scientists
have been able to ascertain that this may have been the area that
was hit about 65 million years ago by a miles-wide crater. One
of the theories is that this crater hitting the Earth may have
led to the demise of the dinosaurs.
We want to vacation in the Yucatan, but want to be able
to stay in an American-type hotel. Is this possible?
Yes. Even though there are plenty of local hotels that can be
nice to stay in, if you are looking for all of the accommodations
that you are used to in the United States, there are some very
nice American-type hotels in the country. For example, there are
hotels like the Marriott in the Yucatan that feature the same
kinds of things that you would expect to receive in America.
