4 Reasons That Will Make You Want to Move to Loreto

4 Reasons That Will Make You Want to Move to Loreto

If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “Screw it. I’m moving to Mexico,” well—I thought that once myself—then actually did it! Living in Southern California, life was just too fast-paced and aggressive. I wanted to slow it down. Breathe a little. And raise my kids in place that was just as beautiful, but without the heavy traffic and competitive, on-the-go lifestyle. Here are my top reasons that will make you want to move to Loreto.

1. Lower Cost of Living

Life across the border in Loreto can be more peaceful and less expensive. More than half a million Americans now live in Mexico, and with a short, two-hour flight from LAX and direct flights to other major U.S. and Canadian cities, this sleepy oceanfront village offer ocean view homes for half the cost of what they cost in the U.S. Home prices range from $130,000 USD to $865,000 USD, with oceanfront homes peeking over $1 million.

2. Endless Outdoor Activity

This secluded paradise also offers an arrage outdoor activities. The five islands of Loreto are perfect for snorkeling, hiking, charter fishing, off-roading, or simply laying out a blanket for a picnic. The islands themselves are a serene collection of sandy beaches and rocky shorelines home to over 800 species of marine life, protected as a World Heritage marine site.  This beautiful town is an absolute paradise for the water sport enthusiast, with epic kayaking, diving and snorkeling, too.

3. Low Crime

While many worry about Mexico’s drug war violence that is adversely affecting tourism in other parts of the country, Loreto is far removed from violent crime. Additionally, while just as beautiful as Cabo San Lucas, Loreto is not on the tourism circuit and therefore doesn’t share the party scene and the crime and theft that tends to come with it. There’s no wild bar scene because if you’re living the Loreto lifestyle, you’ll be too tired from hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, charter fishing, or golfing to do anything after dark other than sleep.

4. Authentic Cooking

This small town Loreto has over 70 restaurants, each with its own flavor and flair. Loreto boasts quaint homestyle cooking in the heart of it’s historic downtown, but also off-the-beaten-path waterfront eateries with stunning ocean views. There’s quite literally something for everyone here. Brewpubs, fresh fish, authentic Italian, as well as your classic Mexican fare… the Loreto dining scene is unique, authentic and tasty.

Have I convinced you yet? 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. With easy access to La Paz and Los Cabos, as well as road and air connections, Loreto is a great choice if you’re planning to move to Mexico. Ready to find out more about buying a home in Loreto?
