Description: We are a married couple currently working in Puerto Vallarta. We manage a small 22-unit Hotel/Resort. We are seeking management positions in the Yucatan area. I am a American semi-retired builder-contractor with 35 years experience in the trades (can fix or build-repair anything). I have many of my own tools. My wife is a very intelligent, outgoing and very likable Mexican gal who speaks perfect English, some french and Spanish of course. She is also an excellent chef. We have experience in many other fields, including travel agency, sales and restaurant experience.
We are seeking hotels or restaurants to manage. We both have excellent public relation, computer, bookkeeping and marketing skills. We will reply to any business opportunities.
