Looking for house in BOLA


Looking for house in the Bahia de Los Angeles. No ejido land, land lease fine. Clean, with unobstructed view of the bay.

Rincon is a very nice area. No idea about the land/title.

I just can't find much of any real estate listings, or for sale by owner, or any much of anything else.

There was a place listed here that was right on the main street next door to costa del sol.

Yea, I've seen that one posted for quite some time. I'm hoping for something out of town; either north or south, not really in town.

You're probably going to have to plan a trip to spend a few days there just to drive around and look for for sale signs.

We made multiple trips to Baja when we got serious about buying something. Just pulling off the highway when we saw a sign to explore the area. Sometimes we were able to tour a house but many times we could only eliminate a prospect or get a number to call for follow up. We ended up with a nice house in a great camp. Surprisingly in an area of Baja that wasn't even high in our search criteria.

There's no MLS and the "realtors " are unregulated. The ones we met seemed to be more about helping themselves than their clients. Sellers or buyers. YMMV.

Yes, get on the ground. If a house has a sign, ask a neighbor if someone has a key to show it. They can also give you some insight to the area. Ask at the Museo, there's generally a different person each day and they live in different areas and may know of something where they live. Check for flyers at the grocery stores.

Thanks for the tips. My wife and I just sold a house in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca. We know all about realtors in Mexico. Most of the places I'm looking at in Baja Sur are all covered by the Craigslist there. Just nothing similar in Baja Norte. I've been traveling to LA Bay since the mid 80's and Chivato, Mulege, San Sebastian, and La Ventana since then too. I enjoy spearfishing and, other than a few choice spots, BOLA was always one of my favorite places.

Maybe private message (u2u) Nomads who have homes there, although most don't post much on Nomad anymore... ?


On Facebook, there is a 'BahíaDeLosAngeles.Info' group page you may join and ask or seek info: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1438046299836992

Best of luck... I really like that region of Baja, and not for the typical gulf water fishing reasons (but that is great, too)... the history and desert beauty is huge around there!

Just curious, why did you sell your place in Oaxaca? I've been there a few times and always really liked it.

I've seen stuff occasionally in Craigslist Tijuana, only one currently is the one mentioned above, and one guy down there had his place listed in San Diego since that's where some of the target audience lives.

The spearfishing sucks! The place is pretty sweet, just not the solitude like Baja. We had a real nice place right over the water, but the reefs there are fished every day and every night by fishermen and there just isn't the structure under water there like in Baja. So the spearfishing, at least as deep as I can go, is minimal.

Got it, thanks. Some of the most idyllic, romantic weeks of my life were spent with my wife in Mazunte.

But by far the best trip of my life was a couple months spent kayaking from Bahia de Los Angeles to La Paz, so I guess maybe I agree with you. And I loved catching dinner fish with my spear.

I have a place in Gonzaga and the spearfishing sucks here too. Wink wink. Find a place you like with or with out fish. You with time in the water will figure it out. What matters the most is that you like the house, neighbors, and community. Good luck!!

Yea, I know you have to spend time in the water. I've always found fish in Baja. I've been spearfishing since the early '70's. All dues have been paid.
