ABREOJOS - OCEAN-FRONT lot for sale $30K


Prime ocean-front lot in the La Baliza area (where all the American-owned properties are) of Punta Abreojos, 1.5 miles from town and a few lots away from closest neighbors. Dimensions are 20m x 60m; I have title and fideiocomiso. $30K; similar lots have sold for up to $75K.

>>>I'd be happy to attach pics if I knew how to put a URL on a photo<<<

I would have bought and be living in Abreojos years ago if they were even somewhat friendly to spearfishermen. Years ago things were fine, but once they "unionized", that was the end of that. Too bad, loved diving those reefs.

Abreojos is one of a group of co-op towns (established in 1948, by the way) along that part of the coast; they make most of their money from lobster and, until recently, abalone. As such, they are very protective of their fisheries and strictly prohibit diving and spearfishing. The fishing from the beach or boats, however, is often outstanding!

Abreojos is pretty special, yea, I'm bummed. How freedivers are singled out as a problem is ridiculous. They didn't care at all in the '80's and 90's. Everybody got along. Same thing with all the islands up and down the coast from Loreto, no spearfishing. However, every Tom, Dick and Harry with a boat and a rod & reel is welcome. Again, ridiculous.

Yeah, but I doubt abalone was a zillion dollars a pound back then.

I was in the commercial diving program at Santa Barbara City College back in the late 70's and there were members of my class that spent their weekends out at the Channel Islands for a couple days hooka-harvesting abalone, filling their hold with ease and selling the fresh catch to area restaurants; that was putting them through school plus some.

Times have sure changed. :no:

I doubt the local coops have real legal authority to regulate diving or sport fishing…
Sometimes the coops overreach their authority,… but you may not win an argument with locals.

Do the ejidos or local municipalities (and their coops) control recreational use of open ocean? I suspect not. They might have some rights over fisheries/quotas, but I doubt they have authority to regulate recreational use of water, recreational fishing. That is fed jurisdiction, me thinks.

I thought there was a nomad posting here about opening a dive shop in Abreojos or Asunción? Whatever happened to that biz venture? Anybody doing recreational diving on that coastline?
