Best Places to Live in Mexico
Being a realtor here in Loreto, Mexico, I have come across so many clients from the U.S., Canada and other countries who have discovered the peaceful, oceanfront charm of this quiet fishing village. And a lot of them say “Why didn’t I know about this place before?” So for those who are considering a move to Mexico, but aren’t quite sure where the best place to live really is, I’ve put together a list of my top three.
This is an obvious choice, since I chose to move from Southern California to live here myself. In Loreto, the way of life is just easier. With the panoramic Sierra de la Giganta to the West, and the crystal blue waters of the Sea of Cortez to the East, the oceanside town of Loreto is fast-becoming a settler’s paradise with affordable prices and small town charm.
Looking for Loreto homes for sale, lots for sale, or Loreto rentals? You’ve come to the right place. We provide Loreto Real Estate services. Whether you are looking for a vacation home, permanent residence, or just somewhere to kick back and relax for a while, you can find everything you need here at Outpost Realty.
San Miguel de Allende, Mexico
Only an 10-hour drive from the U.S. border, this majestic colonial town is vibrant and beautiful. Many U.S. expats flock to this little walkable village with first-class restaurants and fine shopping venues. In the city’s historic, cobblestoned center lies the Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel, whose dramatic pink towers rise above the main plaza, El Jardín.
Attracted by the great weather and low crime rate, most foreign residents are retirees from the United States, Canada and Europe. The large foreign presence has established a number of institutions here, most notably, Biblioteca Publica, which has the second largest English language book collection in Mexico and acts as the community center for foreigners.
This small, historic town of less than 25,000 people is a bohemian treasure, home to artists, writers and musicians. Many Festivals and fiestas occur in Álamos year-round, most notably the Festival of Dr. Alfonso Ortiz Tirado, attended by many national and international musicians, and celebrities.
Álamos boasts numerous buildings exhibiting classic Andalusian architecture from Mexico’s Colonial period, including numerous mansions, the Plaza de Armas, the Church of La Purísima Concepción, La Capilla and the Palacio Municipal (“city hall”).
Faced with all these options, how do you find the place that’s right for you?
It all comes down to personal taste and budget, but if you’re looking for the best places to live in Mexico, my personal favorite is of course, Loreto. If you’re looking to live in a beach destination away from the crowds of Los Cabos, come out to Loreto and see for yourself. Its easy access to La Paz and Los Cabos, and great road and air connections are making Loreto a destination for those seeking to move to Mexico. Have questions?
