How to prepare for retiring to Rocky Point

Beaches, sunset, and sand. No wonder so many people want to retire to a coastal town and spend their golden years breathing the seaside air. Retirees are flocking to the West Coast and cities like Newport Beach and Santa Barbara have become famous retirement destinations. However, what if you could have all the amenities of the coastal life at a more affordable price? The answer lies in Mexico, just 60 miles south of the border. The fishing port of Rocky Point, otherwise known as Puerto Peñasco has the small-town feel coupled with the marine charm. But before you can unwind and enjoy your day at Arizona’s beach, let’s have a look at what you’ll need before retiring in Rocky Point.

The average cost of living and the property market

The first thing to do before you retire is to make a retirement budget. By having a spending plan, you will reduce the stress in your life by a fair amount and be able to enjoy your twilight years. Now there are a few factors that make this town ideal for retirement. A retired couple can expect to live comfortably with less than $2,000 a month, or around $23,000 a year. Yes, these figures include renting a two-bedroom house, utilities, food, entertainment, and weekly maid service.  If you’ve never understood why moving from the USA to Mexico has become a trend, now you know.

When retiring in Rocky Point, you might even consider buying a property. Whether it’s just a vacation home or a private house, property in Mexico is much more affordable than in the States. Plus, let’s not forget that the town is growing – and growing fast. In fact, tourism in Rocky Point is flourishing, which means that buying and selling property will yield a strong return. This is a safe future investment, so choose carefully.

However, just because it’s affordable doesn’t mean it’s easy. Navigating the real estate market is never simple. Have in mind that you’re buying property as a foreigner, so you’ll need some professional guidance from a real estate agent. From setting up a bank trust to the latest listings, the whole process will be much easier with a licensed agent by your side.

Settle the paperwork prior to retiring in Rocky Point

With its proximity to the border and the nickname Arizona’s Beach, it’s easy to forget that Rocky Point isn’t actually in Arizona. Or in the U.S. for that matter. But, yes, retiring to Mexico means you’ll have to take a few extra steps, among them obtaining a visa. Depending on the duration of your stay, there are different types of visas to apply for. Bear in mind that as a US citizen, you won’t need a visa if your stay is up to 180 days. This is a great option if you plan to stay in Puerto Peñasco only part-time. However, if you wish to take roots here, apply for a temporary resident visa which lasts up to 4 years. For this, you’ll need documentation such as yearly bank statements and monthly net income. All this can be easily settled in the nearest Mexican consulate. Once your temporary resident visa expires, you can upgrade it to permanent status fairly easily.

Hire a moving company

Now that your paperwork is all done, it’s time to start getting ready for the relocation process. Essentially, this means developing an effective, stress-free moving plan. However, you’ll find that moving is time-consuming and full of complications, last-minute changes and unexpected bumps on the road. Thankfully, there are experienced professionals like Evolution Moving Company SA ready to save the day. In fact, you won’t have to lift a finger, from packing to loading and unloading, this way simplifying the whole process.

However, accidents do happen and sometimes those bumps on the road can be quite literal, resulting in damage during transport. In such rare cases, it’s best to have insurance that covers your valuable items. Yes, this can make the cost of your relocation a little bit higher, but paying extra for peace of mind is always worth it. After all, why spend time worrying when you can spend it on a beach, right?

 

Prepare for the tropical climate before retiring in Rocky Point

Speaking of beaches, if you’re coming from a colder climate, you need to be ready for temperature changes. The weather is one of the main reasons why more and more people are working and living in Rocky Point. With less than 3 inches of rain a year, you’ll have the sun shining year-round. As the town is tucked between the Sea of Cortez and the Sonoran desert, the climate is mostly tropical.

Part of the Sonoran desert, this region gets less than 3 inches of rain a year so plenty of sunshine is guaranteed no matter what time of year it is. In fact, this is a famous winter destination for snowbirds escaping the cold northern temperatures. It’s a perfect getaway for all those seeking outdoor activities, especially the golf-enthusiasts.  Then, there are golden beaches with rich marine life – so much so that it’s even called ‘the world’s aquarium’! Playa Bonita and Playa Arenosa are the two most popular beach destinations in Northern Mexico.

Post-relocation activities

But, enough with the preparations, let’s take a sneak peek at what’s expecting you once you become a Rocky Pointer. From a huge array of activities, here are some of the well-known attractions you might enjoy:

  • See a Mexican baseball game – Support the local team, Los Tiburones, at the Francisco Leon Garcia Stadium
  • Visit CEDO – Otherwise known as the Intercultural Center for the Study of Deserts and Oceans, it offers eco-tours and excursions in English.
  • Go to an Oyster Farm – If you’re a seafood enthusiast, look no further than La Ostionera de Puerto Peñasco.
  • Try Mexican food – From the local freshmen’s seafood to classic quesadillas and tacos, relocating in Rocky Point will make every foodie satisfied.
  • Go fishing – Why not catch your own food? Head down to Rocky Point Fishing Club early in the morning and find a boat!

Rocky Point for Millenials

Top Rocky Point neighborhoods for millennials

Being a millennial means being born somewhere between 1981 and 1999, and that is all. This is such a big and varied group and it wouldn’t do it justice to speak about it in general terms. People, especially young people like millennials nowadays, change quickly. Their habits and preferences may not be the same in a year from today. So when it comes to picking the best Rocky Point neighborhoods for millennials, the choice is tough. Luckily, Puerto Peñasco has alot to offer regardless of the preferences.

Rocky Point neighborhoods from A to Z

Known to gringos as Rocky Point, this small beach town in Mexico has a unique location. It is situated at the meeting point of the Sonoran desert and the Sea of Cortez. Popularly called Arizona’s beach due to its relatively short distance from Phoenix and Tucson, it attracts many US visitors. Most spend their vacations here, but some come to stay. Those who are interested in working and living in Rocky Point, choose to do so mostly for the lower cost of living. But that is not nearly all. Warm weather, sandy beaches, various attractions, wildlife, local culture, and natural beauties bring more and more people to this once quiet fishing village. Nowadays, there are several communities, still developing, each specific in its way

  • Cholla Bay
  • Laguna del Mar
  • Las Conchas
  • Old Port & Fish Market
  • Playa Encanto East and West
  • Sandy Beach
  • Town of Rocky Point

Where the desert meets the sea

If you are traveling to Rocky Point for the first time, it would help to know a bit about the local neighborhoods. The best source of information is always the community website and local blogs.

Cholla Bay

Bahia La Choya or Cholla Bay is a small community just out of Rocky Point. The most popular landmarks are Tucson Beach, Boat Launch, Competition Hill, and Rocky Point Zipline. However, the biggest asset is closeness to the beach and bay but without the crowd of nearby Puerto Peñasco.

Laguna del Mar

It is located west of the town and surrounds Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. It is planned and built as an upscale community.

Las Conchas

Las Conchas is a peaceful neighborhood, specific for its beach home rentals. It features an annual community yard sale, “Patos & La Playa” Event Venue and Intercultural Center for the Study of Deserts and Oceans.

Old Port

It is a tourist area mostly, where visitors can explore the popular Fish Market and numerous shops, and enjoy bars, restaurants, and nightclubs. There are several RV parks in this area.

Playa Encanto 

Playa Encanto is located to the east of Rocky Point. What this peaceful area lacks in bars and clubs it makes up for in long stretch of soft sand.

Sandy Beach 

Sandy Beach is a neighborhood developing quickly, with many resorts offering condos for rent.  This area offers many grocery stores, bars, restaurants, clubs as well as beaches, ATV rental, and a public golf course.

The town of Rocky Point

This is where you will find the locals. Downtown Puerto Peñasco is a place for clinics, schools, dentists, supermarkets, various businesses, and services.

Before you choose a neighborhood to move to, be careful of items that require extra attention when moving, and always ask a local real estate agent for advice. It goes beyond telling that almost all of these neighborhoods have hotels and resorts in the area.

What can millennials do in Rocky Point?

Those that are interested in moving to Rocky Point will be happy to hear that real estate costs much lower than in the States. The town and wider area offer upscale beach houses, true, but also a large number of affordable homes. With the help of reputable companies like instamove.com, storing excess bulky or old furniture and moving abroad becomes much easier. Moving to Rocky Point and immersing in the local Mexican community feels like starting anew. Once there, what is it that would keep millennials occupied?

Nature and adventure

Just like real estate and rental prices and the cost of living, there are many affordable and fun things to do in Rocky Point. It is chosen as a popular spring break destination for a reason. However, aside from beach parties, Puerto Peñasco offers unparalleled nature attractions. For example, a trip to Isla San Jorge or commonly called, Bird Island. This federal reserve in the Sea of Cortez is home to local birds and migratory species as well. This set of rock formations also features a population of seals and sea lions.

Volcanic craters of el Pinacate and the dunes of the Gran Altar desert are a UNESCO world heritage site. The natural protected area of El Pinacate is perfect for ecotourism, being a desert with the greatest biodiversity. This is also an important cultural and archaeological site. The remains found here date 20,000 years in the past and are shown in the Schuk Toak Visitors Center and Museum enveloped by the volcanic area.

Whale-watching at Laguna San Ignacio is possible onshore, even from the Sandy Beach condos, and offshore on one of the whale-watching trips. Visitors can observe and sometimes even interact with whales at Puerto Peñasco between early February and May.

 

Rocky Point offers ATV adventure to those who prefer a higher level of adrenaline. A mix of dunes of the Altar desert and rocky ground makes a perfect challenge for drivers. However, enjoying beautiful scenery is a bonus for those who decide to slow down a little.

Events

The Rocky Point Rally takes place at the beginning of November and is one of the most important biker rallies in the region. It gathers thousands of bikers from the neighboring countries and regions and from far away for a four-day fiesta. The Rocky Point Rally also raises funds for several charities. Rocky Point Triathlon where athletes compete in swimming, cycling, and running takes place in May in Las Palomas Beach and Golf Resort.

Every spring, the monarch butterflies begin their migrations which last 8 months. During this period, they travel between eastern Canada and their heritage site. We do not know why and how they manage to always come back to this site. All we know is that it is a romantic experience. When it is cloudy, the trees appear to have autumn leaves. That is how many butterflies there are here. On a sunny day, however, the butterflies just keep flying around. Keeping track of them is nearly impossible. It’s almost as if they were forming a golden whirlwind. The kindling show of these beautiful monarchs is one of the most romantic experiences. You and your significant other will adore this site.

Moving to Florida

Do you think that relocation might be a good idea for you? Maybe you don’t have enough job opportunities in your home country? Or, perhaps – you want to retire somewhere nice? Lastly, at the end of the day – you may just be looking for a different way of life. Regardless of why people move to Florida, let us tell you right away – it’s definitely the right idea. But it’s not easy picking a place – you don’t know where you’ll fit in best. What you want to know about are good Florida cities for expats – and that’s precisely what we’d like to tell you!

 

How do you pick among the finest Florida cities for expats?

Sure, traveling around is all good, and you might be an expert at that yourself; but when you’re looking to settle down somewhere, that’s a completely different thing. After all, every sailor needs a home port – and so do you. So, if you’re not from around here – how do you determine what the top Florida cities for expats are? Generally, you need to think about a few things:

  • Living costs – While moving to Florida, make sure you don’t go overboard regarding your finances. No matter where you’re moving, you need to know that you’ll be able to afford your life there. And remember – this isn’t just a short vacation we’re talking about.
  • Real estate – Speaking of costs, how do you intend to handle your basic living arrangements? As in, where will you live? If you want to rent out a place, you’ll have to do some house-hunting; but if you’re willing to buy a home in Florida, then even more so.
  • Your lifestyle – Remember, at the end of the day, you want a place where you’ll be able to fit in best. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you should expect to fit in instantly – but over time. So, pick a place that seems suitable for that.

North Miami Beach is a great idea

As we’ve mentioned – many people from outside the US decide to relocate to Florida at some point or another. Why? Well, it’s actually quite simple. While there are plenty of reasons for such a move, there is one that’s more present than others – a lifestyle change. Let’s face it – Florida offers a lot of wonderful things that life in other places doesn’t. And if you’re a fan of great beaches – for example, a move to North Miami Beach may be what you need.

You’ll have loads of fun here

Imagine – it doesn’t matter where you’re living in the North Miami Beach area; at any moment, some kind of amazing beach is just a short drive away. And you don’t really have to wonder about the weather either – at most times, it will be inclined towards fun summer activities! This kind of life truly makes North Miami Beach one of the greatest Florida cities for expats. Because no matter what you do for a living or how stressful your job is, here, you’ll be able to relax at some point!

If you value luxury – Fort Lauderdale is the place to be

Of course, not everyone looks for top Florida cities for expats in order to relax. And we fully acknowledge that – not everyone is the same. That’s precisely why you want to explore all of your options before deciding on a place. For example – if you’re a fun-loving type, South Florida is a perfect place for your new home, truly. This area of Florida is perfectly suited for all kinds of pumped-up activities, both during the day and the night; and Fort Lauderdale is the frontrunner here.

 

Do you want to participate in amazing, adrenaline-filled activities, and all of them on the beach or in the water? Then this is definitely the place for you. And once the sun sets, you shouldn’t expect Fort Lauderdale to settle down. In reality, the city’s astounding promenade offers countless night-time activities for all kinds of people. Are you the type for upscale, pricey restaurants? If fancy eating is what you find fun, then this is the place to be. Also, if you’re looking for some of the most amazing bars and pubs in all of Florida, you won’t be disappointed in Fort Lauderdale.

Miami is an obvious choice – but still a good one

Lastly, we should turn to the place you might’ve thought we’d forgotten – Miami itself. The crown jewel among the finest Florida cities for expats, Miami is truly the place which has it all. First of all, you should know – if you decide on moving to Miami, the city won’t have you wanting for anything.

 

Obviously, if you like great beaches and other types of fun – you’ll find plenty of these around. But even more importantly – Miami has many great career opportunities for everyone as well. So you should stop thinking about Miami as a place to find vacation rentals – and start thinking of it as a home. Really, if you’re looking for a place in Florida to settle down as an expat – Miami is the most obvious choice.

Sonora Driver License Rocky Point Cruz Roja

I made the plunge to get my Sonora driver license. It’s a process for sure, start out early and bring a lunch!

First go to the fiscal dept to get the application.

First stop is the Cruz Roja. SIDE NOTE: What I discovered was this: Monday through Friday from 10am to 1:30pm, they have a doctor there for consulting, so if you have an urgent need or just want a consult, they charge 100 to 200 pesos ($6 to $12) based on ability to pay and there is someone that translates. The doctor and Cruz Roja splits the fee.

They offer orthopedic braces etc for a donation, then you can return them. Irma is the director and you see her for the driver license inspection. She weighs you, gets your height, has you read the eye exam, sees if you look fit to drive, then stamps the document. She is very sweet but take your translator if you need to. Fill in the blanks as much as possible, see mine below.

  1. First you start out with the fiscal dept to get your application
  2. Next go to Cruz Roja on Freemont, hand it to her, she knows what to do. She stamps it. Cost is 250 pesos approx, she gives your a letter.
  3. Next you go to the police station to get his stamp, his cost is approx 250 pesos also
  4. Next you go back to the Fiscal dept to pay, give them all your papers, bring copies (your passport, MX residence card, light bill if your name is on it. If your name is not on the CFE bill, you need a copy of your lease OR bank statement, showing your name and address, they take photo, pay them for how many years you want, then you are handed your license in 5 minutes!
