We wouldn't do it again.
My wife and I bought into a resort here. Food prices are reasonable, and winters are mild. Aside from that, this place is a geographic nothing-burger. Aside from the panoply of fast food joints, Mexican restaurants, pawn shops, there's nothing to see. The poverty level is 34.1 percent, per US census. The roadways are in overall, poor shape. Drivers are rude and peevish. I wouldn't recommend traveling at night, due to speeding & reckless driving. Motorcycles weave in and out of traffic at high speeds.
Inhabitants look upon newcomers with annoyance or fish-eyed stares. If there's money involved, their disposition gets a little better. We adopted a kitten off the street, near our home. We couldn't find a private practice veterinarian to spay her for less than $300 (!). We called all over the RGV, averages to spay: 300-600 dollars. Utterly ridiculous. Gee, I wonder why there's an epidemic of stray animals here?!
