Cliff, I found an email interchange between you & an interested potential expat, at the end of which was a reference to this Board. In the interchange was provided a lot of great first person stuff about living in Tepic. My wife and I are currently looking at giving a shot at retiring in Mexico starting 1/15. I'm still a working community newspaper publisher, but would retire. We have visited the Nayarit coast (week+ stays in Sayulita 2006, Bucerias 2008) focusing most recently on San Pancho where we visited twice this year, but also visiting El Monteon, Lo De Marcos and Chacala on most recent trip, since we decided to get serious about relocation. We have a tentative line on a rental in Monteon right now, relocated friends in San Pancho who are keeping an eye out for us ... but Tepic caught our attention because of its seemingly great year-round climate, and the rep for hot, humid summers on the Coast itself ... yet located where visiting the Coast would be relatively easy. My wife is a lemon farmer, would want to live where we can grow stuff. We are not afraid of being a couple of only a few gringos in a town or city. Anyway, I guess our current need for info is how to secure rental housing in a casa in Tepic that we would like, with a yard (3 dogs) ... You had recommended a site in your interchange with that other guy which we found useful, however we are not sure how to get into negotiations with a landlord or agent, as we are armed only with rusty Spanish (so far!) Any ideas about that or referral to a reputable agent for potential expat gringos would be helpful. I guess that is enough for now. Any input much appreciated! Best, Greg Stevens, Red Bluff, CA
