The Sea of Cortez, stretching from north to south between the Baja California Peninsula and Mexico’s mainland is one of the country’s most beautiful areas, with a variety of landscapes, including deserts, mountains and subtropical rainforest. The area is a dream for yacht owners with many marina ports set up along the length of the sea for convenient travel.
The Sea of Cortez is also a dream for anyone looking for a warm-weather vacation or retirement property. Three of the region’s most outstanding real estate locations are La Paz, Mazatlan and Rocky Point.
La Paz real estate is defined by a combination of the region’s most beautiful landscape features, with views of the mountains and sea, and the mysterious beauty of the surrounding desert. Buyers can find condos and homes in this relaxing city which combine the charm of one of the area’s original Spanish settlements with natural beauty and modern comforts. Residents enjoy a beachfront boardwalk, modern malls, and professional golf.
Across the sea, just at the point where it opens up into the Pacific Ocean, the old city of Mazatlan offers a rare combination of colonial style and modern beachfront comfort. The city is one of the few built as a city during colonial times directly on the coast, and the original charm of the Spanish style was further developed by a large wave of European immigrants during the 1800s, who also gave Mexico one of its favorite beers. Mazatlan Real Estate includes old colonials as renovation projects and high rise beachfront condos.
Rocky Point real estate is unique in its own way. The community, first discovered and named by a British explorer, has been called “Rocky Point” (in English rather than Spanish) since the beginning, and being located only a couple of hours’ drive from the Arizona border, it has been a favorite community for vacationers and expats since it began to grow in the early 1900s. It has now grown to offer many modern conveniences, including a recently completed international airport making its combined desert-beachfront beauty more accessible to real estate buyers from other parts of the country.
If you are looking for a vacation or retirement property close to home, affordable and with warm weather, consider your options on the Sea of Cortez.
