No car is available with the exchange as we share a car with another Canadian family, but inexpensive transportation is easily arranged to tourist attractions and pick up from Merida is also available with local friends.
This is our second home, so all exchanges need not be simultaneous. We are Rob, a retired teacher, and Donna, a secretary/bookkeeper. We are non-smokers with four grown children. We are experienced exchangers who will appreciate the opportunity to visit your part of the world.
We have created a website for the house for potential exchangers detailing the amenities, the surrounding area and the rich Mayan history of the area.
