Escaping the ‘Busy’ Epidemic: Why I Moved to Loreto, Mexico
Instead of the ocean I was used to in California–with waves that crashed onto the sandy beach–the glistening Sea of Cortez is calm, almost still. It sets a tranquil pace. Rather than going surfing, people go paddle boarding, and snorkeling. The water is clear, clean and beautiful and you can hike along the surrounding ridges and see the islands from a higher vantage point. You can’t help but stop and take in the glory of nature that is everywhere you look. There’s no rush. There’s room to breathe, and time to enjoy.
I wanted to take my family somewhere peaceful and unhindered by tourism. In this relaxed, seaside town about a 6-7 hour drive from Cabo San Lucas, no one will hassle you on the streets. And there’s no American tourists gripping their Pina Coladas. This is about authentic Mexico as it gets. In fact one of my good friends calls it “Disneyland Mexico”. The food is superb. For such a small town, there are SO many delicious restaurants! And the price is right. In fact, the cost of living here is amazing compared to what I was paying in Southern California.
Since I’ve been here, I found multiple opportunities to make a living. I started my own charter fishing company, have been working in real estate and also opened a non-profit Montessori School, which both of my kids attends. But the great thing about it is, I’m not running from place to place making deals on my cell phone. The people here have all adopted a calmer lifestyle and I, for one, have taken to it.
