ABOUT LIVING A GOOD LIFE IN SAN FELIPE


San Felipe is a remote desert community enjoying the benefits of a warm, dry, winter climate, and a hot, humid (Florida-like) summer. The Sea of Cortez is one of the world's most prolific salt-water habitats. The town of San Felipe is small and laidback, with a variety of restaurants and bars ideal for relaxing while taking in the endless views of the typically aqua blue waters of the Sea of Cortez.

The temperatures of both the land and the sea off of San Felipe are quite different than on the Pacific side of the Baja peninsula. The Sea of Cortez feels more like the Atlantic Ocean in Florida than anything on the West

Coast.


History


San Felipe was founded in 1916 as a commercial fishing port. Still operating a sizeable shrimp-fishing fleet of small boats "pangas," San Felipe's primary source of income has changed over the several years from fishing to tourism and retirement living with as many as 250,000 American, Canadian and increasingly other foreign visitors annually.



San Felipe Today


Easter and the "spring break" weeks, when college students from schools around the southwest USA flock to San Felipe, is the busiest time in town. During the summer months, May through September, the weather is ideal for a relaxed lifestyle on the beaches. Fishing is good and the pace of life slows considerably.


With a population topping 25,000 (including foreign residents), this seaside community is a delightful retirement area. Over the past two years there has been a major influx of retirees who are building homes here. Local businesses provide a variety of services catering to construction including but not limited to house design services, architectural services, construction services, lumberyards and hardware stores.

The city water supply comes from wells about 30 miles south of town and also springs in the mountains. While it is considered safe to drink, it has a high mineral content.
