Welcome everyone to the Expat Rebel community Livestream. If you have a question be sure to put it in the chat and I’ll get to them after some announcements. If you hear a storm in the background it’s because I live right on the beach and a big tropical storm is right over us right now. I love living on a remote beach in Mexico but sometimes it can be really loud. And our living room is flooding right now.
Our channel is growing. We are almost to 200 subscribers. Thank you to everyone of you.
Big thank you to Lana who’s very active in our community for a couple of more articles which I’ll be including in the next newsletter on Wednesday.
Pipe asked for the AirBnb links to a place I rented that had solar panels in Progreso and it’s wasn’t on AirBnb. My finance finds a lot of places off online platforms. I will have some more house tours since those have been requested from several people.
I published a book about Playa del Carmen earlier this week. I lived in Playa for 2 and a half years and loved it. It is your most detailed, up-to-date advice on what to see and do, and how to visit or live in Playa del Carmen. Learn where to live, what to eat, and do.
Playa del Carmen is unique because it’s the perfect combination of Mexico inexpensive, International friendly, great weather, ancient Maya ruins, azure Caribbean waters, cool clean cenotes (water holes), and a lot of short and long-term rentals in a wide range of prices.
I rented six different places in my two and a half years living in Playa. Everything from a studio to an epic penthouse one-bedroom with a view of the Caribbean. Plus two-bedrooms condos with private rooftops. And some places a short walk to the heart of Playa 5th Avenue.

I’m working on a home tour of a beach home I recently stayed in Chixculub Yucatan Mexico. So look forward to that.
And I’ll have a home tour of this place as well.
We have been looking at homes in Telchac which is nearby on the beach and one place has fiber optic internet that was 300 down and 100 up, which is incredible. https://youtu.be/h7zmDoHg3C8

Expat Rebel host Christopher Sherrod is an American Expat currently living in Chixculub Yucatan Mexico on the beach.
Expat Chris is from the San Diego, CA area and first came to stay in Mexico in October 2016 a month before the US Presidential election. He and his love choose Playa del Carmen due to a friend getting married a month later at a nearby resort. The trip was the start of slowing traveling around the world. Chris had a health scare in the US and choose to live out his remaining days slowly seeing the world.
He learned how to chill out living in Mexico and also got some alternative health care that changed his health outlook. Mexico helped him recover and live life to it’s fullest.
They heard that the Yucatan Beach communities had lots of beach homes which all of Quintana Roo have barely any so choose to move to Chixculub.
Chris got into filmmaking as a hobby while recovering from two brain seizures and started sharing his Expat Life. Expat Rebel came out of that.
