Hello all, I am a new member. Spouse and I recently bought a small house on the island. We're looking forward to spending more and more time there. Thanks for all the helpful advice from this forum!

My husband wrote a NON-Sales piece about why, when, and how to purchase property in Cozumel.
http://www.cozumellandlikegold.org/

Page 2 specifically deals with understanding what's what about owning real estate on the island.

I would start there, and ALWAYS HIRE AN ATTORNEY TO COVER YOUR ASS-ETS.

Full disclosure, my husband is a great real estate agent, but I do not believe in using this site for self promotion and advertisement, so if your interested, I can be reached via this message board.

Just click on my name, and it will take you to the email site.

Good luck, and playing in the sand box is a lot more fun as an adult.

Hi Michelle

My wife and I bought a place in Cozumel late 2011 and as the other post suggests... I'd start with an attorney if you are seriously looking at a place. I did a lot of searching around and ended up using Jan Folsom. She is licensed in the USA and Mexico. She's been great to work with.

I would not agree with that at all. It's conceivably true that the 10mg size is most common, and I can't prove that it's not the only size available on the island. Pill size, however, is not the same as dose. For example, a typical dose of aspirin is 650mg but the typical tablet size is 325mg.

In the US, where I practice, lisinopril is available in 2.5mg, 5mg, 10mg, 20mg, 30mg, and 40mg sizes.

The dose I have prescribed and seen prescribed most often is 20mg daily.

Hi Michele - I hope I am posting this right. One suggestion I have is to do a lot of research before you go down . There are a lot of houses for sale in Cozumel listed on different websites. Before we went down to look at houses, we put together a spread sheet based on what we thought looked interesting on the websites, and analyzed a list of about 40, then narrowed it down from there. In addition to using an attorney, we had a friend we knew who is a local real estate agent act as a "buyer's agent" for us, like you do in the u.s., to look at the different properties we had selected. She was more familiar with the characteristics of different neighborhoods and drove around with us looking at the different places. My husband and i had both lived overseas before, and I think that helped us have reasonable expectations. That being said, I think Cozumel is an easy place to live. We had lived in southeast Asia, and I lived in panama as a kid. Cozumel doesn't have the level of extreme poverty of much of Asia, English is widely spoken, travel and accessing money are easy, and the island doesn't have the kind of political issues like I remember in panama . It's a friendly and beautiful place. Good luck with your search!
