I vividly remember the first time I heard about La Sierra de La Laguna, the mountain range located between Los Cabos and La Paz. My friend Carlos, 5th generation born and raised in Baja California Sur, shared with me tales of incredible experiences he had with friends and family in this special place. The stories varied from goblins and treasures hidden by pirates to wonderful waterfalls of crystalline waters and endemic gigantic trees that exist only in this region.
Plastic waste is a serious problem that has been around for years, and far from solving this problem, we just turn our heads the other way and let it get bigger and bigger. Unfortunately, the ocean suffers the worst part of this problem.
Imagine a place where the weather is perfect, the food delicious, the neighbors are friendly, vast undeveloped land surrounded by ocean, desert, tropical palm trees and not so distant mountains. A place where time seems to slow down.
Most homes in Los Cabos are sold furnished or partially furnished. A small percentage of homes do not include the furniture, and this will be stated on the listing agreement. If the house is to be sold furnished, the seller should make a list of exclusions for items that are not part of the purchase.
The biggest thing I try to stress to my sellers is to DE-CLUTTER all spaces. If an item is not used every day put it away neatly in a closet. The kitchen and bathrooms should be as clean and tidy as possible. It is not possible to use 50 different types of spices every day so stash them in a cupboard.
After the preliminary agreement has been signed, the closing agent (broker, attorney or real estate professional) will assist in the purchase process. Property title search, appraisals, finance approval, visual inspections, etc. are usually performed before the closing date.
Whenever I buy a property or I am assisting buyers with their purchases, I always think about resale. Real Estate is one of our most valued investments and re-sale should always be considered in these terms in order to protect that investment.
The yearly whale migration along the coast of the Baja Peninsula is an attraction many people flock to yet few explore the wonders of Los Cabos from beneath the water. Where the cold currents of the Pacific Ocean meet the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez a vast array of marine life flourishes. For those with the curiosity to interact with wildlife in its natural environment, the Pelagic Safari is the perfect opportunity.
There are two annual fees to be paid in January for those who own property in Baja California Sur. Mexican property taxes are known as predial and like most other counties and municipalities these taxes are used to operate local governments. Similar to our north of the US – Mexican neighbours, there is a discount for paying the entire tax early; paying by the end of January you receive a 20% discount, February for a 15% discount, March a 10% discount and April, a 5% discount.
From off-the-beaten-path adventures to innovative cuisine, Los Cabos has flourished into a global destination boasting some of the most coveted homes and resorts in Mexico.

Here’s The Agency’s guide to the best places to dine and unwind in Los Cabos.
