How much does that price tag in pounds? The least difficult math is to do 20 pesos to 1 greenback. If a little something price tag a hundred pesos it really is all over 5 pounds. It’s closer to 6, but that presents you an estimate.

→ Who are we?

Hey there! We are Greg and Hillary – a husband and wife workforce that loves traveling, likely on adventures, and encouraging others do the exact same! Whilst we like traveling, at this issue in time, we nevertheless have entire time nine-5 work opportunities in Dallas, Texas.
In August of 2016, we packed up our matters, Greg stop his occupation, and we moved to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico!
Hillary is functioning remotely for her CPA firm and Greg is functioning on this website entire time.
We see ourselves as quite common people today, comprehensive with an common revenue, common work opportunities, and (however) an common total of scholar mortgage credit card debt (many thanks UNT!).
I know what you are thinking, “Aren’t vacation weblogs meant to be created by hippies that do not have work opportunities and are living in hostels?!” Perfectly do not you be concerned, we are functioning on making that take place! Whilst we hope to turn out to be entire time travelers in the following 1-two yrs, this website is not essentially aimed at people today that want to vacation entire time.
Our hope is not that you stop your occupation and turn out to be a extended haired, bearded, Volkswagen van driving hippy. Instead, our hope is that following reading through our tales you are extra influenced to are living a extra satisfying lifestyle from 5pm-9am!
Why such the emphasis on how common we are? Whilst we like reading through vacation weblogs, it is effortless to experience disconnected from the writers at periods. It looks as while they are main such extraordinary life that they are someway doing a little something that is unreachable to the “average” person.

We are listed here to confirm that erroneous. We are listed here to explain to you that even if you operate a entire-time occupation and only get two weeks of getaway every yr-you nevertheless have the electricity to structure an adventurous lifestyle for your self. Afterall, that is just where by we began just before leaving it all at the rear of to are living la vida loca!
Right after getting several caffeine induced discussions about how people today ought to vacation extra and change their priorities in a way that will guide to a extra satisfying lifestyle, we determined to share our
tales with you.



  1. Was it hard going feom dollars to pesos? Was it also hard from going from lbs to kilos? And was it hard from sliding a debit/credit card to not being able to do that in mexico?

  2. Man just watched a few videos and Mexico is completely different from what the media portrays it as. Glad I found your channel because I'm planning my trip within the next year and PV is def on the list. Thanks!

  3. There are 2 posibilities;
    1) If the word 'tomatillo' isn't present to refer to the green tomato, then 'tomate' is the second alternate whereas 'jitomate' is the red tomato.
    2) 'Tomate' and 'jitomate' are sometimes used interchangeably to refer to the red tomato, in which case, 'tomate' might refer to the round tomato whereas 'jitomate' refers to the oval-like tomato.

  4. 12 pesos a Kilo for Mango? WOW that is really cheap, I lived 1 year in Peru and even though its a producing country they where much more expensive than that. Great stuff

  5. Hey, Greg. While you guys are in Mexico, you should know about "Profeco", Is a governments consumers protection agency. You can check out their website, or their YouTube channel.

    I love bananas and strawberries!.

  6. Another cool video. Thanks for the prices. It's been a while since I've been in PV. Do you guys usually pay in pesos at the markets and restaurants? Many years ago there were no ATMs so you had to go to a Mexican bank to convert dollars to pesos. Do you use debit cards or credit cards for any purchases? Thanks for the links. Keep up the good work.

  7. I didn't see any jicama. It is the trend of the summer here in Vancouver – jicama slaw on everything – especially in tacos. The first time I tried it was at the Cerveceria Union on the Malecon. They put free cut jicama in a bowl with spices on the side. It is supposed to be very healthy as well. Thanks for the map links – we will definitely stock up at these markets before we sail off to Yelapa in December.

  8. I have problems knowing if something is cheap because everything is sold by weight in Mexico and other countries. On the other hand, here in the states some items are sold by each. For example, a dozen eggs, avocados or cucumbers. Take care tejanos from the prairies and lakes. Mango es mi fruta favorita.

  9. Jitomate is the red one and the tomate is the green. The jitomate or tomato in english, is a vegetable that México gave to The world, actually the name comes from xictomatl in náhuatl (The language of The aztecs). The same of aguacate, chocolate and cacahuate, all náhuatl words and proudly mexicans products. You are in the land of the peanut, my friend!

  10. Love, love, love the markets. I want to live across the street from the market. Bananas are my favorite – not plantains. Plantains are much larger, much more firm, not sweet, and not designed to be eaten raw. They are usually fried and smashed, and then refried with a little salt on them. It's like eating a huge chip.

  11. Thanks for the market video. Since we only stay in condos when we're there, we do a lot of cooking which requires shopping. We love all the fresh stuff. You might want to show the three fish markets down the street from the bus station across from the now closed, old grocery store. If you go in the morning you can get an idea just how much selection there is right off the boats. Thanks again!

  12. Tuna… Not the fish kind the fruity kind.

    Also when i lived in Mexico as a kid my dad had planted some Peach trees and they had the most delicious peaches that i can remember ever tasting.
