This is a home we have rented in our city to hold church services for the Saints in Carmen, Campeche. Since you haven't seen many inside of the homes, I thought you may enjoy the details of beautiful tile flooring and courtyard. In a year or so, we may do another video to show the progress of plants and decor we will be implementing in the future. For now, this video is what it looked like before we moved in and yes, under the stairs will be a beautiful indoor garden that will be enjoyed for many years to come. There obviously is much repair and maintenance to be done. This house was considered upper class when it was built many many years ago. Surrounding us are other beautiful homes and once I learn the language better and befriend my neighbors, they also, may be willing to share the beauty of their homes with inside photos. We have Iguanas, babies to adults 2 feet in length. Hummingbirds that are gorgeous, large beautiful birds that look like finches, other than their large size and yes, in this climate it is almost impossible to avoid a cockroach here and there. If you have foliage, you have them. ORTHO Home Defense at HomeDepot is awesome for keeping them out of your home. It's like an invisible wall of poison to them, but safe for people and pets. Also, we spent 6 months in Queretaro in 2014 and I know exactly where that white/grey house is that you have a photo of up above. It is absolutely breath taking, I was tempted to knock on the door for a tour. Heehee. Here is the link to our Mexican home and like I said earlier, I hope to make a video again in 2017 of the "Back to Eden" garden we will be planting and the indoor garden under the stairs.
Thank you so much for your website:

Vimeo link is no longer available NEW

Sorry to all the readers. The vimeo video was corrupted and needed to be deleted. Our church building is in a new location in the centro and is one of the oldest buildings on the island, but not as pretty. Take care and God bless

Here is what you don't see in the U.S.
by: Joffre

In Mexico, and Latin America in general, you see lots of masonry construction and tile floors and tile roofs. Their houses are stouter and made with better materials than houses in the U.S..

Thanks for sharing
