We Bought Land!!

Jorge and I have been considering buying land in the village of Chabihau for a few years. Our dream is to build a small vacation villa there so we can someday spend more time there relaxing, eating freshly caught fish and hanging out with Jorge’s extended family.

Two weekends ago, we went to Chabihau to check out a piece of land we heard was for sale. Turns out it wasn’t exactly what we were hoping for, so Jorge’s second cousin took us around town to see all the lots for sale. We weren’t overly impressed by any of them (lots of work to do!), but we came across one that we fell in love with at first sight.

This past weekend, Jorge traveled to Merida to sign all the paperwork, and now it’s ours, all ours!!

Chabihau is a beach town, but we’ve always preferred the view of the lagoon, so our main priority was a lagoonfront property. I think we got it right.

Looking at the picture below, it covers everything from the barbed wire fence on the left to the palm trees by the car on the right. (10 meters wide, 25 meters long)


Several friends have already mentioned that it looks perfect for camping. We hate camping, but anyone else is welcome! haha

  1. Congratulations!!! I can’t wait to see how it develops. Great move on buying property and in such a gorgeous place.

  2. Congrats! That’s so exciting. It looks beautiful. Once you start to build upon it, it will look less like a camping ground. For now, purchase a few tents. Lol.

  3. I think we’ve passed through Chabihau on one of our road trips. The place was so beautiful that we pulled off to the side of the road to get a better look at the lagoon. The view was wide open and inviting – with soft white sand and calm water reflecting the incredibly blue skies. Irresistible! I had to kick off my shoes, walk in up to my ankles, stand there and just breathe. Such a wonderful place to relax. Congratulations on your purchase – Felicidades!

  4. i have been looking online for a place to buy get away property and stumbled across chabihau. I’m in love and plan a visit soon. Would love to hear about your experiences.
