Mexico Cruise Ship Home Port-Rocky Point/Puerto Penasco

There have been a few setbacks for the 1.4-billion-peso (US $93 million) cruise ship facility in Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, but they appear to have been resolved and the first cruise ship is expected to arrive in the first half of next year.

Construction of the home port, so called because it will be a departure and arrival point for cruise ships, began in early 2013 but strikes by transport workers, issues with construction materials and political and environmental pressures have created delays.

Thank you Tony Richards from Mexico News Daily in English.

Mexico Tourism Up – Stats at Tianguis

There ought to be celebrations in Acapulco this week when the tourist industry gathers for its annual conference, Tianguis Turístico.

Mexico’s biggest tourism fair, which this year expects 100 foreign and 120 domestic buyers of travel-related products, follows a year in which the industry bounced back in a big way after some years of economic and security woes.tourism-600x360

A record 29.1 million visitors arrived in 2014, an increase of 20.5% over the previous year, a big turnaround after some dismal years following the 2.5% decline recorded in 2009.

Mexico Crime Rate Dropping

Mexico Crime Rate Dropping

peace-400x280

Violence and crime have declined in Mexico since 2012, says a report by an international research organization, with current conditions being similar to what they were in 2007.

The Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) says falling homicide rates and activity by organized crime have not only made the country more peaceful but have helped boost the economy. It also concludes that there is great potential for peace in the long term based on institutional strengths.

Rocky Point Mexico Las Palomas Condo Sold

In November of 2014, my client, “Angela” came to Rocky Point to buy a condo. She is from California and originally had considered to purchase in Puerto Vallarta, which is a great place, but when she found out that our beach side community of Rocky Point-Puerto Peñasco is easily driven here from California, she thought this made more sense, plus she got a condo for about half the price as she would have in Puerto Vallarta. The condo she chose was in Las Palomas. A beautiful 1 bedroom fully furnished unit with great views, low HOA payments, and sold for $109,500. The closing could have occurred sooner, however the last 2 weeks of December, government offices are closed for the holidays, so we were able to close the end of January. I took photos of her at the closing table, where our closing coordinator/attorney Suzeth Quintana was explaining each and every document, including her title  (Fideicomiso-Bank Trust) which will be ready soon. Angela is retiring in a couple years and she is excited to be meeting new friends in the building and in town. She will be a great addition to our community, she is a very cool person! I am happy for Angela, she bought one of  the “best deals” on Sandy Beach. The cruise ship home port is coming along and we have already seen an increase in sales activity, so she came at a great time. Welcome Home Angela!

See image at the bottom of the “Thank You” from the seller. (authorized by him to show here) They interviewed me last year. I told them my unique marketing methods and that I would promote their condo and just KNEW I would be the one to present a buyer, and I did, even though they listed with another agency, he still wrote the “thank you” which is much appreciated. When a property is priced right and the sellers & buyers and agents for both sides are all dedicated partners, we all win!

Rocky Point Pedicure

Another awesome pedicure at Denise Laguna’s spa “Capricho” in Rocky Point Mexico, located in the Plaza Pelicanos behind the Shrimp Plaza/Park off Freemont Blvd, across from the Fire Dept. “Bomberos”

Notice the machine my technician was using, for the first part of the massage, kinda tickles but still feels great. It’s a very calm place with beautiful colors, and I can relax and forget about any stress and walk out with my french toenails, wearing sandals. Gotta look good when wearing sandals showing property to clients. Here in Rocky Point we are sweeping sand rather than shoveling snow.

Denise also cuts hair!

You can find them on Facebook by typing in:

Rocky Point Cruise Ship Home Port

I went by the home port construction site today, took a few photos on this beautiful sunny day during spring break. It’s coming along and down the road across from Bella Sirena, there’s many more concrete blocks which are part of the construction process. We hear that the first cruise ship should be available the end of this year or the first of 2016. Continued activity is a good sign! We have more detailed information than this, but this quick post is just a quick update. For more details, visit here. Note that at the corner is the ultra light guy waiting to take passengers. If you go, take a camera!

Medical Tourism Rocky Point Mexico

MEXICO: New medical tourism hospital in Puerto Peñasco- Rocky Point

Sandy Beach Medical Center and US hospital group Amerimed have joined forces to build a full service medical tourism hospital in Puerto Peñasco.

Puerto Peñasco is a city in the Northwest of the Mexican state of Sonora, 100 km from the border with the US state of Arizona. The location joins the peninsula of Baja with the rest of Mexico. The area is part of the Altar Desert and since the 1990s there has been a push to develop the area for tourism, as it is heavily visited by people from Arizona and California. Puerto Peñasco is often called Rocky Point in English, and has been nicknamed “Arizona’s beach” as it is the coast closest to the major cities of Phoenix, Tucson and Yuma, and many Arizonans spend weekends there.

In 2009 Dr. Jesús González-Gaytán opened his clinic in Rocky Point. Sandy Beach Medical Center offers services to locals, expatriates and medical tourists from the USA. Dr. González sees the potential of Puerto Peñasco for tourism. He is now medical director of the new Hospital AMERIMED Puerto Peñasco.

With four hospitals located in Cabo San Lucas, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and San José del Cabo AMERIMED is used to running medical tourism hospitals with bi-lingual staffs, U.S. trained, certified and/or educated and licensed doctors and nurses, state of the art diagnostics equipment and a corporate core commitment to the medical tourism industry.
