Los Barriles is located on the ocean shore, 40 miles north of the San Jose Airport and 75 miles south of La Paz. The East Cape is easy to access via a paved Federal highway but is a world apart from those highly developed areas. This is coastal living at its best, full of lovely rural settings in the Great Outdoors. The Sea of Cortez, in the front yard of Los Barriles, teems with wildlife, fish, and whales. It is called the "Aquarium of the World."
While classified as a desert with less the 10 inches of rainfall annually, temperatures generally do not rise above 80 degrees F. for 10 months out of the year. In spite of its perfect climate and setting, the East Cape has maintained a rustic flavor and small beach-town feel. The area is growing at a measured pace, maintaining its charm with development that provides a wide variety of tourism and investment opportunities.
Los Barriles' population is approximately 5,000, about half of whom are locals and half are full or part-time ex-patriates. English is commonly spoken, and there are lots of opportunities to learn Spanish with classes and private tutors. Beaches are easily accessible and safe fun for swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. Los Barriles is also well-known for being a popular birding area and offers hiking, exploring on ATV’s, mountain biking, and horseback riding. In the winter months, Los Barriles is famous for exceptional wind-surfing and kite-boarding conditions.
Los Barriles and the East Cape are world-renown as the best sport-fishing areas in North America. The surrounding Sea of Cortez is abundant beyond imagination, and charter fishing is a big part of our economy. Enjoy the great fishing and support sustainable fisheries!
Mexico on My Mind has named Los Barriles to its “Best Places to Live in Mexico” list for its close proximity to the U.S., small-town atmosphere, large supportive English-speaking ex-patriate community, and its beautiful white sand beaches on the Sea of Cortez.
