San Felipe Real Estate Market

The San Felipe Real Estate Market has been booming the past few years. People from all over the USA, Canada, and the world have found a delightful mixture of the old and new in the San Felipe area.  They especially like the 'undiscovered' aspect of the area. Below are just some of the attractions that are drawing people to the area.

San Felipe is a picturesque town facing the beautiful Sea of Cortez and is well-known for its excellent fishing. Jacques Cousteau once called the sea of Cortez the "aquarium of the world" due to its abundant sea life. The famous fish shrimp tacos were in invented right here in San Felipe. The town gained much of its popularity with the invention of the three day weekend. This charming beach-side community is close enough to the U.S. border to make it a long weekend destination, and far enough from the big cities for tourists to feel away from it all. San Felipe is an easy two and a half hour drive south of the USA border (about 120 miles) on a good paved road, and worlds away from any typical gringo environment. 


San Felipe and Mexicali

       Mexicali is just south of the USA border. The road from Mexicali is four lanes for the first 25 miles through the Mexicali suburbs and farmlands, and then it narrows down to two lanes when it reaches the wide open spaces. Shortly after the road turns to two lanes, the unique Baja scenery begins and the stark open Baja frontier is nothing short of spectacular! The waterfront areas around San Felipe are very active. The city has recently initiated a plan to beautify the waterfront area, and dozens of new palm trees have been planted in 1998 on either side of the main drive. 

       Both visitors and locals like to cruise the Malecón, the beach-front street near the center of town, and vehicles of all kinds can be seen parading by. There are dozens of campgrounds located on sandy beaches north and south of town, and San Felipe offers a number of nice hotels. Basic services such as gasoline, ice, beer and food are plentiful in the  San Felipe real estate Baja Mexico Ocean Beach Front for sale various markets located throughout town. One of San Felipe's claim to fame is the extreme tidal changes. When the tide goes out, it goes way out! This is excellent for beachcombers but makes launching a boat more of a planned event than a random act. 

San Felipe Weather

       The weather in San Felipe is very pleasant most of the year, but can be hot and humid in the summer. Fortunately, the Sea of Cortez is never too far away for a refreshing dip. Strolling along the seafront walkway under the stars is a great way to enjoy the evenings all year long. The Port of San Felipe traditionally depended on fishing and shrimping for its economic base. In a little more than two decades the economic base has changed from fishing to tourism. 

       You'll find camping north and south of town, as well as in town, several hotels and resorts, many restaurants, and watersports. The natural attractions of this area, it's beautiful beaches of temperate water during the spring, summer Hobie Regatta and fall, plus it's pleasant winter weather, is the major draw for both Snowbirds (retirees who live part-time in Mexico during the fall and winter months) and weekend vacationers from southern California and Arizona. The high tourism season seems to be October though May when many Snowbirds arrive, to wait out the winter blizzards in the northern USA. 

       Early fall thru late spring offers the best weather. Being about 2 hours southeast of Ensenada, the weather in San Felipe is usually about 10 degrees warmer and has much bluer skies than her Pacific coast neighbor during the cooler months. The average temperature year around is about 78F. San Felipe is located in a unique eco-system, where the desert meets the sea. Therefore, temperatures have ranged from 115F in the shade during the summer months of July and August. In December and January, the temperature can drop to about 40F at night. These are the extremes, and most of the time you will find the weather very pleasant in San Felipe. The altitude of the Bay of San Felipe is 3 meters above sea level (or about 10 ft.). The population of San Felipe is estimated at 20,000 people. This number can increase by up to 5,000 depending on part-time residents (retirees & vacation home owners) or popular weekends such as Spring Break or Memorial Day.
