Some years ago, Gingy and I began searching for a better place. A place where we could enjoy the Mexican Caribbean and be surrounded by people that were honest, hard working and who would freely welcome us to their tropical paradise. We found that special place on the island of Cozumel. We began to prepare for retirement on Cozumel in 1992. We purchased two houses in a development called Villas Del Sur. I took the picture above while I was inspecting the concrete roof of one of our houses.
The Villas Del Sur community is made up of 18 house that completely surround
a city block. In the center of the block is a common area with a pool and
located in a beautiful tropical garden setting. Our houses are two story
with 2 bed rooms with 1 1/2 baths + living room, dinning room, and kitchen.

In the beginning,Gingy
and I seldom got to stay in either of our houses. We usually managed to
keep them leased or rented to help pay the mortgage.
You may e-mail for more information.
Adjacent to the Villas Del Sur complex is the Corpus Christi Church and a large formal park. In the center of the park is typical Mexican Kiosco.
We are always surprised that from this park we can see the tall tails of the cruise ships as they come into port. The ocean is about 1/4 mile away.
