Hola Amigos, I'm Shaun. My wife Astrid and I (+5 cats!) did it! We traded our hectic New York City lifestyle for a more beach-y existence in Mexico. We bought some land and built a house in a funky little fishing village called San Francisco or San Pancho , as the locals call it, in the beautiful state of Nayarit. A little surfing, a lot of tropical gardening, expat life, cat fun, and more!
