I live in on Mexico's Pacific coast, a bit south of Puerto Vallarta.
We have a casa, a dog, a cat, and a very large garden filled with palm trees, orchid trees, 2 very tall spruce trees, bougainvilla, mandavea, copa de oro, hibiscus, morning glories, gardenia, plumbago, cactus, strawberry, and many others we do not know the names of. We love the people, the food, and the climate, the smell of the ocean, and the smell of the tropical forest. Summer is hot and humid, winter is cool and refreshing. No more snow! We enjoy cooking and entertaining, walking the beach in the early morning and watching the sunsets in the evening. Have never heard thunder and seen lightening like we get here, at first frightening, then awesome and beautiful.
