10 Reasons to Purchase Property in Cholla Bay Puerto Peñasco

by Gretchen Ellinger
Mexico Living Guide

Cholla Bay is a vital beachfront community located about five miles from downtown Puerto Peñasco, with unique attributes that command the attention of buyers who want the best that Mexico has to offer.

1. Land is less expensive than in other beachfront communities. Beachfront properties are particularly good values, especially as compared to other communities.

2. Every property in Cholla Bay is a short walk to the water. You cannot get further than a 10-minute walk to a beach access, no matter where in the community your home is located!

3. Cholla Bay will always be primarily low-density development. There are some tall single-family homes in Cholla, and a few townhomes built close together, but there are no provisions for condo towers or other high-density development.

4. Cholla Bay is a peninsula; with limited land available, your investment is sure to provide excellent future returns. As demand for property close to the water increases, Cholla will become even more valuable.

5. Properties of every type, in every price range, are available in Cholla Bay. Purchase a new or older home, buy a lot and build your dream home, or apply your talent to a fixer-upper.

6. Cholla is a great place for boaters. Boats can be both affordably launched, and stored “dry” after use, right in Cholla Bay.

7. Cholla Bay has an active, interested, helpful homeowner association, with low annual fees, and a clubhouse that is used for community events, and private activities as well.

8. Cholla Bay is a community, rather than just a tourist resort. Full-time Mexican and American residents are joined by weekend/vacation owners from several countries, and all care about each other and their community.

9. Cholla Bay has good restaurants, a cantina, civic organizations, a local charity, a variety of services and great people.

10. The “bay” is one of the world’s most unique estuary environments, with extreme tides, fascinating sea life, and affords unlimited water sport and recreation opportunities.

Drive out to Cholla Bay, about a mile west of the Reef, and visit this community to which so many people have been devoted, in some cases for generations. You just might fall under the spell of Cholla Bay!
