The Guaymas and San Carlos area may be the perfect Snowbird destination. It has the mild winter weather, even milder than Arizona, and also offers beautiful white sand beaches, fabulous fishing and boating, lovely desert/sea vistas, and cheaper real estate. It is one of the most picturesque areas on the Sea of Cortez.
San Carlos is a clean, modern town with a beautiful wide boulevard as the main street. You could even swim on the same white sand beach used in several hollywood movies. It is only a 5 hour drive from Tucson, Arizona to San Carlos!
It is now easier than ever to come to San Carlos/Guaymas. It is now included in the tourist zone, so no vehicle permits are required to visit. This makes border crossings quick.
Available activites also include golfing, hiking (mountain and beach), bowling, ATVing, diving, snorkelling, and shopping.
Guaymas is a small sea-port city with shopping and services. It has a shopping mall with all you could want in groceries, hardware, clothes, etc. Check out the fishboats and the many restaurants. Five minutes away is a nice Mexican coastal residential community called Miramar.
San Carlos is ten minutes north and west of Guaymas. It is a modern community populated mainly by Americans and Canadians. It features marinas with slips for 750 boats. Lovely residential developments, a golf course, and beautiful white sand beaches. Lots of restaurants are found in San Carlos too, but prices are similar to USA. The fishing and diving are great.
