    It's really interesting to see how things are done in other countries. Thanks for sharing.

    I see you are getting a 2HP pump. Is that a two speed type? Is power expensive in Cancun?

    Interesting build. How much would something like that cost down there?

    Nice build! I like the shape of the pool and the stairs.
    Do you have pics from when they mounted the mossaik tile and it's preparatory work. Would be nice to see.
    Looking forward to part two!!
