This is exactly how I felt!
You ask, "Why Mexico? Isn't it dangerous?" Jade and I and the pups loaded up our Nissan with as much stuff we could fit and drove to Cuernavaca, Mexico In January 2009. We stayed for 180 days (the maximum allowed for a US citizen) and studied Spanish. Si, hablo espanol.
We met some wonderful people, including some attorneys, professors, and fellow students. We only had a few minor troubles with the police while there, and it was overall, I pretty positive experience.

Another sunset in Acapulco. This was Jade's office view!
So, to convince me Mexico was that place, we are moving to the beautiful beaches of Playa del Carmen! I have been looking for places to rent and activities to do all week. We will be here for at least a year, and we are planning on taking our pups again this time. The rest of our stuff will be in storage. I have already found A TON of activities to do. Including, visiting the 7th wonder of the world: Chichen Itza. I'm totally obsessed with Mayan culture so this is right up my alley.
