    Tulum- development by Simco

    June 23 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    Last 3 days at Dreams resort Tulum- our accommodation/ meals paid by RETA. Heard sales presentation and then went to see one of their projects (38 unit so-so condo unit with small pool) and then saw their land that will be part of the large Gran Tulum development. Developer still does not have the municipal approval for developing. Surprised at how many condo units have been built off the main side road. Roads already built with vacant land ( in trees/ jungle) reready to have condos built. Wonder if the market is over saturated. Also surprised by the monthly expense # ( strata, rental management, utilities etc) for this development On the news Iran shot down US drone- increasing tensions...

    Unfortunately our time at Dreams was mainly stuck in the room or going to the vet.... went Thursday - took 3 hrs and again 3 days later as both dogs were worse. No infection- just stress diarrhea. Able to take them to the bar by the pool in the evening when there was a breeze as too hot and humid for them - strangers came up and they loved the attention! Good thing we took our car for the RETA tour as Koda had an accident in the car and we could get back to the hotel on our own for a late lunch. Has been exhausting for both of us with looking after the dogs and getting up at night - the cipro and other GI meds should start working.... only benefit is that we had a ground floor room and able to easily take them out for bathroom breaks.

    We both checked out the beach- so sad to see the amount of sargassum (seaweed) on the beach and in the ocean ( at least 30 feet from shore of dense seaweed)- no one was swimming in the ocean in the late afternoon.
