The enthusiasm for property ownership along the shores of the Sea of Cortez has reached new levels for the private property investor, especially with the construction of the new home port. Property taxes are minimal compared to the U.S. and Canada. They are often about $100 USD a year for every $100,000 USD of your property’s value. A $500,000 USD condominium would pay approximately $500 USD a year in property taxes. Yes you read that correctly, per year not per month. And, if you pay before January 31st of each year you receive a 15% discount and sometimes entry into a raffle for a new car!
In short, the standard and quality of living can be quite high. Puerto Peñasco’s International Airport provides service to several Mexican and US destinations. The new airport opened in 2009 and has mainly been used for general aviation, however as the town grows so will the use of the airport. The city is well served with wireless, cellular and high speed communications and internet capabilities. Healthcare is up to par and constantly being upgraded, many of the doctors are United States trained. Most of the facilities are state of the art but costs are much less than elsewhere for services and medications. (Some cost examples for Mexico: root canals are approx. $150-200 per tooth, and an MRI is only $425 for a full body scan).
Here in Puerto Peñasco, you can find sophistication or tourists being beach bums all in the same safe seaside community.
