A growing trend among Americans buying Mexico real estate is the traditional, authentically Mexican colonial cities or old towns, with narrow streets, lush parks and colorful homes. While there are plenty of investment opportunities in the cities in towns which are growing in popularity, another trend is just beginning to crop up along side this one; new developments with modern conveniences, designed according to these rich traditions.
One such development of houses for sale in Mexico is located near the town of Loreto in Baja California. The community was designed with bricked streets, narrow alleyways, little parks with benches and lots of flowers, and homes with an outward design which includes red-clay roofs, colorful decoration, and, in general, offers the authentic atmosphere of a traditional Mexican community. The community was made to complement the charm of the nearby village which is home to 8 colonial historic buildings.
Walking through these streets, a resident would feel like they are walking through a little village in central Mexico, with two major differences. One is that everything is new, clean, well-kept up and beautifully painted.
The other is more significant; it also includes all the benefits of a modern, gated beachfront community. First of all, it is on the beach, and includes a beach club. It also includes a golf course, and tennis stadium. There are gourmet restaurants, business centers and even an art esplanade – this is almost more a reflection of the traditional Mexican community.
It also has an international airport nearby, within 10 minutes. The airport serves a relatively small community, but is surprisingly modern, offering service to 2 major U.S. airports with easy connecting flights to just about everywhere else, and flights to various other parts of Mexico.
The town of Loreto itself has only 10,000 people, providing a very relaxing, small-town lifestyle atmosphere, with amazing views of the Sea of Cortez, as well as the surrounding desert and mountains. It is located over 200 miles north of La Paz, the state capital. It was founded by the Spanish conquistadors and retains the charm of old Mexico. The key historic site is the Mission of our Lady of Loreto, which marks the beginning of what was called the "royal road," a corridor of old Spanish missions that runs all the way to Sonoma in the U.S.
The climate is sunny year round, with an average temperature of about 75 degrees. The weather makes it easy to enjoy sailing, fishing, diving, natural sight-seeing, camping, biking and many other outdoor activities. A large biodiversity and variety of wildlife also makes Loreto a unique place.
Overall, this development allows buyers to invest in an ideal balance between the ever more popular traditional lifestyle, and the modern convenience which distinguishes Mexico from other affordable places for vacationers and retirees. As time goes on, developments such as this one are sure to gain a growing amount of attention from buyers who are looking for the best of both worlds.
