Dear International Living Reader,
Live in Mexico and work in the U.S.? That’s one solution many expats are trying…and with a place less than an hour’s drive from much more expensive San Diego, why not?
Mexico’s Baja Peninsula is a geographical wonder. Bordered on one side by the Pacific Ocean and on the other by the Sea of Cortez, this long, thin strip of land features some of the most spectacular oceanscapes—and some of the most incredible beaches—on the planet.
The Baja is really two states: Baja Norte and Baja Sur. Both have their distinctive charms. Much of Baja Norte, particularly the famous (and infamous) Tijuana, is drive time from the U.S., and has been popular with U.S. expats and tourists for many years. Baja Sur, and especially its famous playground, Cabo San Lucas, has a character and lifestyle all its own.
But there is much more to Mexico’s Baja Peninsula than Tijuana and Cabo. All along both sides of this incredible stretch of land are beautiful and affordable options for retirement, vacation, second homes, and rental opportunities.
That’s what this report, Baja Peninsula Beach Towns—Mexico: Dream It, Find It, Live It, is all about. We’ve chosen five locations that we feel hold themost potential for the would-be expat. Each of our picks offers you a lifestyle most people only dream about with great weather, plenty to do and see…and established expat communities to make your transition easier.
We’ll tell you all about them—including how much you can expect to pay for real estate (you’ll be surprised at the relatively low-priced offerings we’ve found in each of the five destinations covered in this report) and realtor contacts, too.
We also provide an at-a-glance rating for each destination so you can see how each beach town
measures up to your own needs.
Keep in mind, though, that this report covers the best of only a small part of Mexico, the Baja Peninsula. It’s just a starting point…
