Guest or …?

The Mexican constitution does not permit me to have direct ownership of a home in this area. The Mexican government has permitted me to have a Mexican bank hold ownership of a property. It permits me to use that property as my home in Mexico. I remain a guest in Mexico.

I invite people to my home in Mexico. They remain as guests in my home without the same rights that I, the owner, have.

I sometimes rent my home to people for brief periods. They remain as guests without the same rights that I, the owner, have.

If my home in Mexico were further inland I could own it directly. In my mind, that would not change that I do not have a right to be in Mexico and therefore I remain a guest in Mexico.

Good thoughts.
As I understand it being a Permanent Resident 'allows' me to stay as long as I want?
I may not understand that correctly.
But I'm trying to integrate that understanding with the 'guest' concept.
Am I a 'permanent guest' until otherwise indicated?

I do realize we are somewhat belaboring the issue and the concept of 'guestry', but it's not totally irrelevant as far as I am concerned.
