Owner info

About the owner: We are rejuvenated at the sight of the sparkling Sea of Cortes and the magnificent Mount Tetakawi. We have discovered the village of San Carlos, a SAFE and SECURE Mexican gem midway along the Sea of Cortes. It is not crowded, people are friendly, and English is spoken often. We like the convenient location of San Carlos, which is about 6 hours south of Tucson, Arizona. Don't look too closely for traffic lights in San Carlos. There are none!

Why the Owner Chose San Carlos, Son., Mexico:
San Carlos lies on the brilliant blue waters of the Sea of Cortes. Enormous whales, pods of dolphin, and an amazing diversity of fish share this Pacific Paradise... The sea blends with the lush gardens of our San Carlos condo. We invite you to visit this special oasis on the edge of the Sonoran Desert. We strive to make our condo as comfortable for you as it is for us in this unique location.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
If you would like a taste of Mexico with many of the amenities of home, you have come to the right place. The privacy of the top floor, the spectacular views of Tetakawi, and the prime location on the largest natural Marina in Mexico make our condo the perfect place for modest luxury at an affordable price. The central gardens of the Marina Terra complex create a poolside paradise. Lounge under a palapa by the private pools and enjoy palms, lush gardens, and sea breezes. Take a stroll along the Marina, relax on the waterfront at Shots restaurant and bar or the El Embarcadero Restaurant, or scan the docks for the 'catch of the day'. This place IS Heaven on Earth at your doorstep!
