Illuminating the way

Before I used to have lighting around the paths and pool which were low and invasive, so I thought. But over the time people would for some reason bang into them especially with their suitcases. or just , by accident kick them. How, I dont really know as there was enough room on the walkways for both the people and their suitcases. So in time the lights had become battered , broken and after so many times of fixing I decided they could not be fixed anymore.

The lights did not quite reach to the back of the property where I had installed solar lights. These too would give out  in the end and maybe only last a couple of hours in the dark.Time to do something about it especially with the two new rooms at the back of the property they would be in need of more lighting too!

I ordered the new lights from Ticul and they took 2 months to arrive but arrive they did eventually.

They were very costly but they do look good especially in the evening and one can easily see your way.


I liked them so much that I have ordered more to be placed around the breakfast patio so that people can sit out there in the evening and play cards and check Wi Fi internet  or whatever they like to do .The remaining I will put in front and  at the entrance way to attract better attention.


Que bonita! exclaimed the staff when they saw them lit up . Of course ever joking I said ,Si ,solo faltan los nombres de las  calles . Yes, only lacking the street names
