Our Adventure...To back up a little bit, just like everyone else looking for a change, we began watching International House Hunters which started our journey of traveling to the beautiful city of Merida, Mexico. We were eager to learn as much as we could about the area and researched the cost of living, health care, safety and absolutely everything else we could think of. After receiving positive results for all of our potential concerns and several trips later, we decided to purchase a ruin that literally needed everything. It came with no roof, several oversized iguanas and a gigantic tree growing through the side of the exterior wall and into our house.
We successfully chose an architect that not only provided architectural drawings but also assisted us with obtaining INHA approval and hands on supervision throughout the entire process. The architect and his team were of the utmost importance to us because we did not live in Mexico for most of the time during construction. We are very pleased with the results and are very happy with our new home in Merida.
We know that there are many concerns and questions that people have regarding a move to Mexico. We are familiar with purchasing, building, living in Merida and everything from Vegan life to late night carriage rides.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

Hola, I'm Ana de Los Angeles Joa Zayas. Ready to help happy you with all of your real estate dreams and needs here in beautiful, cultural, historic and [yes] peaceful Merida - Yucatan!
Allow me to tell you a little bit about me. I'm a proud native of Santiago de Cuba, Cuba! I consider myself blessed to have first visited Merida in late 2004, and fallen in love immediately. I've owned my home in the historic Santa Lucia neighborhood since then, and I live here most of the year. So I've learned a lot about Merida, the Yucatan, and have a network of relationships that I can share with you.
I've got a wonderful family, including grandchildren, that I adore! Interior Design, the Visual Arts and Cultural Travel are my hobbies.
Merida offers you many neighborhoods and lifestyles to choose from. So don't be rushed, take your time, there's a lot to know and enjoy!
I speak both Spanish and English. But if you don't speak either of them don't worry, we will figure it out between us :-)

Permíteme contarte un poco sobre mí. ¡Soy un orgulloso nativo de Santiago de Cuba, Cuba! Me considero bendecido de haber visitado Mérida por primera vez a fines de 2004 y de haberme enamorado de inmediato. He tenido mi casa en el histórico barrio de Santa Lucía desde entonces, y vivo aquí la mayor parte del año. Así que aprendí mucho sobre Mérida, Yucatán, y tengo una red de relaciones que puedo compartir contigo.
Tengo una familia maravillosa, ¡incluso nietos, que adoro! El diseño de interiores, las artes visuales y los viajes culturales son mis pasatiempos.
Mérida le ofrece muchos barrios y estilos de vida para elegir. Así que no te apresures, tómate tu tiempo, ¡hay mucho que saber y disfrutar!
