Living in Los Cabos: Tis the Season…. For Chocolate

 People sometimes ask “Don’t you miss the changing of the seasons?” No, I don’t miss COLD at all! And besides, we have plenty of seasons here in Cabo San Lucas. Obviously we have high season, windy season, turtle season and whale season (we won’t mention hurricane season just yet). And we’ve got Chocolate Season. YUM, one of my…See More

Living in Los Cabos: 10 Reasons to Cabo NOW

Facebook is breaking my heart. On one hand I see wonderful postings about how every man, woman and child is working their buns off in the clean-up/recovery effort and what great strides they are making. There are near-constant reports of workers helping rebuild even though they lost their own…See More

Living in Los Cabos: Stormy Weather Part 3

 There’s no doubt about it. Getting ready for and actually making it through the storm are a lot easier than living with the after-math. Now is when we need to address the damage. Obviously the first priority is any injuries; that must be the first focus. The reason you got a first aid kit together before the storm is…See More

Living in Los Cabos: Stormy Weather Part 2

 Water! How could I have forgotten that? Going back to ‘before’ stuff for a moment: you’ll want to stock up on drinking water. Big Time. First of all, the aqueduct will break. It always does, but we never know how long it will take to fix. So stock up. While you’re at it, get paper plates so you don’t have to use drinking…See More

Living in Los Cabos: Stormy Weather

 After all these many years I do not ever recall being up to N on the hurricane names before it’s even September! YIKES! So I figure a few words on storm season are in order. I think we’ll deal with Before/During/After. Frankly the Before and Afters are the most important. Most of the BEFORE actions can be taken weeks or even…See More

Living in Los Cabos: Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys

 I love that phrase going around on Facebook. And it perfectly describes what I’m going through selling Casa OZ. Casa OZ is the most screaming hot deal in Pedregal right now, and the agents who have seen it all agree it’s a bargain. The main house has three bedrooms and 3 ½ baths, full kitchen, pool, Jacuzzi, terrace…See More

Living in Los Cabos: Cutting Your Cost of Living

 As promised, we’re back on topic with the cost of living in Cabo. Recently I posted the prices of many commodities at the supermarket. For some time now my shopping habits have been dictated not so much by value as time. I need to get in and out as quickly as possible. But if you have the luxury of a little free time you can…See More

Living in Los Cabos: We Interrupt This Topic

We were discussing the cost of living, and we will go back to it. The last post was the cost of groceries in the store, next we’re going to talk some strategies to cut that pretty dramatically. But in the meantime I got sucked into a Facebook discussion about whether to rent or buy if you’re moving to Cabo. And I think what I have to say may be important to someone out there.First, obviously I *AM* biased. My work is to sell houses, not rent them. So of course I’d rather see someone buy rather…See More

Living in Los Cabos: The cost of groceries 2014

 Believe it or not, this is the most popular and most heavily read topic on my blog. But it certainly is not the most exciting to write. But, it’s time for an update. So anyway, here are some prices taken from my recent grocery receipts. Most are from MEGA in Cabo San Lucas, with some Costco thrown in. The produce prices are all…See More

Tell us about yourself, type of business, last employment
After building a vacation home in Cabo San Lucas my husband and I finally took the plunge and moved to Mexico full time about nine years ago. I am a real estate broker, the owner of Realty Executives Los Cabos and the real estate writer for Los Cabos Magazine. The best part of my work is helping others find their Mexican dream; many former clients have become good friends. Bob and I share our home with two Boston Terriers who aren't a bit spoiled. OK, just a bit spoiled. In fact, if you could ask them they'd admit to sharing THEIR home with us humans.

Living in Los Cabos: Are We Confused Yet?

Yikes what a day! I’ve been working the phones trying to find the earliest flight home and it’s a mad-house. None of the airlines seem to be taking reservations yet, but they all have a different idea of when the airport will re-open. It’s taken all day to compile this, and I figure there may be someone else who needs the info, too, so I might as well post it. I plan on checking daily… it will be interesting to see how it…

Living in Los Cabos: Lessons Learned After the Worst

We were prepared for a storm, not a natural disaster. As anyone reading this probably knows Cabo was trashed on Sunday night, September 15, 2014, by Hurricane Odile. On Saturday we went to bed with the prediction of a near miss by a Category 1 hurricane. When we woke up on Sunday the prediction had been changed: a direct hit by a Category 4. By that time there was really not much to do but maybe buy more food and stress.…

Carol thank you so much for the advice. yes I would love a reference for the visa issue. We are looking forward to a new life down there. I don't mean to be too needy but do you know of any places between ensenada and cabo that are safe to stay with a car?
