Hot houses

And thanks for clearing up that your abode is unusually warm due to its situation and construction, as are way too many places built in the past few decades. Built either very cheaply or using architectural features that don't work in our warm tropical region. The few old homes left here, the older homes in Agua de Correa, Coacoyul and especially the old section of Petatlán all feature architectural styles that reflect what works here to keep a home refreshing and cool most of the year. Just because an architect uses palapa, adobe and exotic woods doesn't make a place comfortable. Light, sunshine and airflow all must be taken into account. But many new constructions make living without A/C nearly impossible. I get where you're coming from and didn't mean to sound critical of you. My apologies, amigo.
