The Punta Banda Lifestyle

Ever thought of visiting or living in Mexico? Did you know there’s a beautiful sparsely developed peninsula just two hours south of San Diego, where you can rent or own a seaside home for but a small fraction what you need to spend in coastal southern California? Yes, and with the same year-round climate advantages and natural beauty, but without all the freeway bustle and distractions.

Baja Ensenada beach photoOur unique locale just south of Ensenada is peaceful, safe, tranquil, friendly and filled with natural beauty. The cost of living is much less and everything here is decompressed.

Nature here is bountiful, with a rugged coastline that resembles Big Sur on one side of the peninsula and – on the bay-facing side – beautiful homes along a gorgeous five-mile white powder sand beach. And, how many people do you think you’ll see on your wonderful long morning or evening beach strolls? Perhaps one or two friendly neighbors, that’s all.

A World of Opportunities

Here, we have a wonderful spot to live, yet within just a few hours of San Diego. We are 20 miles south of the Ensenada port, and 5-10 miles west of the main Baja highway. Yet, for our relative remoteness, we have all the amenities for gracious living. A nearby supermarket  offers US quality foods of every variety, at prices well below those in the US. The fresh produce is wonderful, and the local pastry shops!

Baja Coastal homesWe hear you asking about internet and phone. More good news. Reliable internet is available inexpensively either via satellite or DSL, and many of local residents “telecommute” to jobs in the US. For television, there are several dish TV options offering the same range and quality of channels as in the US. Here, too, there are very inexpensive cellphone plans with unlimited US and Mexico calling.
