A fantastic day outing, while we build your dream.

Customers often ask us what they can do, when they visit the Yucatan, other than visit their house or reno under construction. While there are lots of cenotes and very interesting villages to visit and Merida to explore. There is also a really great day on the water, for those into fishing or looking for a fantastic family outing. Our friend Randy Bowser,  runs Progreso Fishing Tours (Yucatansnook.com) he is a pro at fishing for the local sea trout in the area and of course the Snook, Barracuda and Tarpon that are in the local waters as well. He follows a strict catch and release program, except for a select few direct for the table. So sustainable fishing is his priority, as it should be for all fishermen. So, if you are looking for a great day on the water, this is the place and he is the guy. I have fished for years, but Randy’s fishing knowledge and technique is second to none and his customers see the results. He has invested in a brand new boat, which is perfect for his chosen waters and is sponsored by Okuma, so you know you are using world class gear. But one word of caution, book early or be dissapointed. Oh and I forgot to mention he has really cool T-shirts too.


How to dial in Mexico: “¿Amigo, do you have to make a call?” V 2.0

We often get asked how to place long distant calls, well these folks have taken the time to do a flow chart explaining it all.

One of our latest pools

With over 80 pools built, we have the experience and skill, to build yours. This pool and deck combo was designed for lap swimming and included a wading area for smaller children, plus the massive deck and soon to be added glass railing to preserve the ocean view.

To all our customers and friends


WOW, I couldn’t believe it a 13.1 degree difference.

Today I decided to do a test, to check the efficiency of a 2 inch covintec panel in the real world vs the sales pitch. I already knew it was good but never expected this.

I had the time to do a test, with a laser temperature to gun, to check the efficiency of the covintec panels in direct sun. The wall in question is my west wall, so it gets the afternoon sun but not all day sun. I knew the panels are good but never expected this. The sun had set by maybe 10 minutes and the ambient air temp was 25 degress C. Outside wall temperature with the gun on bare mortar  wall 37.7 deg C.  Same spot on inside wall 24.6 a whopping 13.1 degree difference, that is a lot less energy required to cool a room, if you are using Air-conditioners. This is with a 2 inch Covintec wall panel. The roof is 4 inches so should even be better in the full sun all day.
