Over the last few years we have been fortunate enough to be selected to look after people’s houses while they travel. So far we have house-sat in Costa Rica for 2 1/2 months, and had a series of sits in Mexico – from Progreso, Yucatan to San Miguel de Allende.

Our go-to websites for finding these opportunites are: www.housesitmexico.com, www.mindmyhouse.com, and www.housecarers.com. There are many more sites to explore, but these are the ones that have given us value for the money.

So what has it been like? Explore these pages to learn about our experiences.
