Well as the holiday season approaches once again, so does the part time residence of the Baja Sur. Todos Santos is beginning to have traffic and the restaurants are filling up, hotels and rental properties are also becoming full. Our real estate business is continuing to pick up with the total sales year to date (as reported by the Todos Santos MLS group) currently exceeding the total sales of 2011 by 23%, effective the 1st of December. The prices are now holding steady with asking and selling prices getting closer together.
On Saturday after leaving the Zumabathon in the plaza (a fun day doing Zumba with participants from Cabo, Todos Santos and La Paz, all proceeding going to a local charity), I was headed home and came across a caravan of cars (about 30 or so) that were at a stop and appeared to be lost. I pulled alongside the lead car and asked “donde vas (where to)” and the reply was “Tortugas” -“Ah, I see OK. Follow me, only about 5-blocks away” I said. I spent the next hour or so watching the group enjoy releasing the current hatch of Leatherback Turtles. The group came all the way from La Paz (just an hour drive) and every car was full! All Mexicans, La Paz locals. I was very excited to see them participating with such an active role in conserving our wildlife, and teaching their children to do so as well. It is these experiences that make me continue to love being here and knowing that I made the correct decision making my life change, as I know you will too.
