I thought there were some coastline buying technicalities with the Mexican government but haven't kept up with possible changing laws.

Send me the secret recipe
Wood fired adobe ovens heated to 900 degrees work well for us. I have a great dough recipe I'll share when I find the file. I'd scan the hard copy but it has a lot of sauce on it.

We had to get a permit to buy and provide documentation showing we were more than 65 miles from the border. I think the prohibition on buying in DF still stands but I don't know the particulars

But like so much of Mexico's economic policy, it appears to have been written by an angry, confused and greedy guy with a 6 grade understanding of economics.
You have to remember that Mexico was invaded many times. Spain, the US, Texas and France. Not having a fifth column on the coast, the borders or in your capital must have seemed like a good idea at the time. The bank trust work around is fairly recent. It is Mexican nationalism not economics.

Mexico will need to restrict development to maintain the beauty of its beaches and to maintain access for the public

The Big Green Egg I use for BBQ can crank pretty high with a full load of raging lump charcoal and a blower.

I just bought the gear for pizza on it - the stone, the pizza paddle, even down to the pizza wheel and pizza pans. This is a wood fire pizza loving family. When I saw your adobe oven I was so jealous I flew into a pizza making rage and even talked bread baking Tricewife to switch to pizza dough.

So far the best wood fired pizza I've ever had has been at Mezzaluna in Oaxaca.

Different strokes for different folks, but I couldn't drop 950k on a beach house just outside of Merida. Even if I had 950k set aside for a beach house.

Dropping chunk change on a house effectively drops anchor. Me, personally, I'd rather be mobile. Merida? Love it. But I could rent for a week, month, whatever, and be ready to move on.

San Miguel de Allende? Many gringos buy, few stay for more than a few years. People are constantly coming and going. And after the '08/'09 downturn, a lot of them sold their second homes and so there is a lot of real estate on the market.

One can very easily rent in SMA and get their fix. Decide you don't like that particular part of SMA now that you've lived there? Move to a different part of the town. Rather be in Guanajuato? Cut lease and move out.

Beach? Mountain? City? I'm probably too ADHD to stay in one place for long. Get in, look around, get it, and move on.

Unless I had a semi-permanent job, I wouldn't buy. At least not big chunk, even if I had the cash. I wouldn't want to have a million dollar house to unload.

NY Style Pizza Dough

I used to make my own sauce but found Contidina pizza sauce in the Costco in Hermosillo. Comes in the big #10 cans

Yes, it is great but very pricey and hard to get here. Our neighborhood cheese maker, Ramundo, makes a very similar style cheese that woks well but I need to order it early. Mozzarella from the states or Hermosillo is usually what we use.

We can cook pizza next time you come down.

BTW, if you don't have one, snag an infrared thermometer from Harbor Freight when they have them on sale.
