What are the Rights of a Foreigner While in Mexico?

Anyone who is a foreigner in any country is bound to feel some amount of uneasiness, particularly when they are faced with a legal problem, conflict with the local citizens or altercation with legal processes or authorities. The same holds true for foreigners in Mexico. Read on as we give the basic information about your rights while in Mexico, along with what to expect with your foreign status.

The Immigration Law states that the immigration policy of Mexico is to secure full respect for the human rights of domestic, migrants and foreign, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, immigration status and nationality. Special attention is given to vulnerable groups like seniors, teenagers, children, women and indigenous. Should the foreigner be accused or found guilty of any unlawful act, their undocumented immigration should not create any prejudice.

For those who have any interest in Mexico, whether it is an investment, business or family in the country, the state should also guarantee that the acquired rights of immigrants is recognized. Free transit throughout the country is guaranteed equal to any national, as well as access to education, medical and other public services, regardless of their immigration status. Civil actions cannot also be denied by authorities, particularly in marriages and granting of wills.

One specific right of a foreigner that is not exactly well known among Mexican authorities is that an interpreter should be provider for them if they cannot speak or understand Spanish. And should there be any legal judicial processes against a foreigner, authorities have to inform the foreigner of any international agreements or treaties when it comes to the transfer of prisoners, along with any other piece of information that may benefit them.

Now, what are the main obligations of foreigners during their stay in the Mexico? The law states that immigrants should comply with these obligations: protect their immigration status documents; show documents proving their identity and immigration status when needed; give personal data when requested by authorities; and other obligations stated in the Constitution, Act, Regulations and other pertinent provisions.

We hope that the concepts we showed above has given you a clearer view of the most common doubts of foreigners in Mexico. Keep them in mind as they will come in handy on your next trip to Mexico. If you have any specific case or particular question, do not hesitate to consult an immigration expert or the Mexican immigration authorities.

The Tradition and Story Behind the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

The Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a popular Catholic celebration in commemoration of a man that encountered the Virgin Mary on December 9 and 12 on 1531. Every December 12, public celebrations in honor of Mary are help all throughout Mexico. Thousands of people all over the world pay pilgrimage to see an image of the Virgin Mary at the Basilica of Guadalupe in Mexico City, while children garbed in traditional costumes are blessed in churches.

What makes Our Lady of Guadalupe different from the other apparitions of the Virgin Mary? For one, this is the only apparition where Mary left a miraculous image of herself that is not made by human hands. Also, this is the only universally-venerated image of Madonna and Child where Mary looks pregnant, instead of the common image of her holding baby Jesus. These and many other aspects make this a significant apparition for Catholics and all of humanity.

In 6th century in present-day Mexico City, the Virgin Mary appeared to St. Juan Diego on the Hill of Tepeyac, requesting that a church be built on that very site. To prove her identity, Juan Diego was asked by the Virgin Mary to gather roses growing on the hill. Juan Diego wrapped the roses in his cloak and took them to the bishop. When he opened his cloak to the bishop, aside from roses, a striking image of the Virgin Mary miraculously appeared in the cloak.

The image of the Virgin Mary was wearing the traditional garb of an Aztec princess, with a black sash around her waist that indicated pregnancy. The elements of the image specified the Virgin Mary as being above the Aztecs gods, all the while showing that he is submissive to God. With mere symbols, the miraculous image on the cloak spoke the truth about the Christian faith, and a mass conversion of millions of Aztecs to Catholicism followed soon after.

A church – called the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe – was immediately built on the Hill of Tepeyac. Here, the original cloak of Juan Diego with the miraculous image is put on display for visitors to see. The basilica has become one of the most popular pilgrimage sites for Catholics all over the world. The miraculous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe on the cloak has been placed through several scientific testing procedures to prove its miraculous legitimacy.

Whale Watching in Cabo San Lucas: Why It’s One of the World’s Best

Whale watching is one of the most exciting things you can do in Cabo San Lucas.

Sitting at the tip of the Baja Peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez, Cabo San Lucas is a very special place for encountering whales. The Pacific Ocean has become a highway for Gray and Humpback whales as they make their way from Mexico to Alaska, while the Sea of Cortez is a whale sanctuary, thus creating an area highly concentrated with whales.

Considered as one of the world’s most biologically-intact seas, the Sea of Cortez enjoys a high population of Gray and Humpback whales from December to April. Add that to about 75 percent of whale species in the Sea of Cortez and you will find that whales thrive in this area all year round.

Do not be surprised to see them launching themselves from the water and making a big splash.


And as if seeing a whale in all its glory is not good enough, visitors are also treated with other whale behaviors like flipper slaps, breaches, tail lunges, spy hops and tail slaps. By far, the Humpback whales have proven to be the most impressive. During those months when the whale population swells, you will witness wild displays of whale desires as they impress each other to look for a mate.

There are many tours offered in Cabo San Lucas that will give you a chance to get up close and personal with these majestic creatures.

Why US Seniors are Spending Their Retirement in Mexico?

Year after year, a growing number of American seniors are spending their retirement years in the coastal areas of Mexico, including Cancun, Rosario Beach, Vallarta and Rocky Point.
Retirement in Mexico

These retirees opted to stay in this side of the country because of the relaxed and laid-back lifestyle. And although they admit to having reservations before they made their move, in the end they figured out that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.

A recent study on the retirement trends in the United States shows important information that can greatly help meet the needs of the future group of American retirees who are considering living in Mexico. Previous research focused on well-known expatriate communities in central Mexico, particularly in San Miguel Allende and Ajijic. This left the coastal communities of the country the least studied among the US retirees.

Released last week, the report focused on issues affecting the American retirees in Mexico. Four more reports are expected to come out in the future, and will focus on real estate, health care, community involvement and environment. The study was based on an 88-question survey answered by 842 American participants. Aside from the questionnaire, data from the study also came from focus groups in individual communities.

The survey showed that most of the retirees are young, with almost half of them under 65 years old. About 30 percent of them are single, divorced, widowed or never married. A big chunk of them has an annual income higher than $25,000. Four out of five of them are homeowners, with mostly paying cash for their homes. They study was conducted in five areas where most retirees live, particularly Punta Banda and Playas de Tijuana, located south of Ensenada.

In one particular night, a group of US retirees gathered on a beach-side restaurant and echoed most of the findings of the survey. For most of them, money was a big factor and most of them has become comfortable with Mexico.
Retirement in Mexico
These people bought some of the region’s properties during the building boom during the years 2005 to 2006, and they bought their homes with cash. They mostly live in one or two-story homes and agree that high rises on the coastline restrict corridor views.

The survey says over half of the respondents considered litter as their top problem in their retirement communities. Even still, they reported walking on the beach as a favorite activity. Almost half of the respondents said safety issues were a big concern in their move to Mexico, and 66 percent said drug violence is an important public policy issue. Since they started living in Mexico, majority of the retirees have not yet changed their attitude about their personal safety.

Remembering the Triumph of the Mexican Revolution

Every year on the 20th of November, Mexico celebrates the anniversary of its Revolution. This year marks the 105th anniversary when the country started the revolution that will overthrow Porfirio Diaz. General Porfirio Diaz was an important military figure during their war against foreign invaders, but rebelled against the presidents. In 1872, he tried to overthrow President Benito Juarez, and finally succeeded with President Lerdo de Tejada in 1876.

From 1876, Porfirio Diaz stayed in power for over 30 years.

Porfirio Diaz

In these years, Mexico boasted political stability, increased foreign capital and economic growth, which was evidenced in their creation of new industries and railroad tracks. However, such progress wasn’t translated into the well-being of the people. After a while, political unrest started brewing, with labor workers and peasants as the unhappiest segments of the Mexican society.

To protect these two sectors, the Mexican Liberal Party was founded by Ricardo Flores Magon. This was seen by the Porfirist regime, and Magon was persecuted and died in an American prison. In an effort to crush any uprisings from labor workers, the army repressed a strike of miners from the Sonora’s Cananea mine in 1906. Brutal and unforgiving, the Cananea Massacre is considered historically as the spark that ignited the Mexican Resolution.

Diaz was very much aware of all the pressure. Thus, in an interview with an American journalist in 1908, he said that he now welcomes an opposition party in the republic. A year later, the Anti-Reelectionist Party was founded by Francisco Madero. Coming from a wealthy family in Coahuila, Madera has studied business in the United States and France, and fought for democracy via his political newspaper articles. He was designated by the party to run for president in the 1910 elections.

Now facing a great amount of pressure, Diaz ordered Madero’s imprisonment, saying that he was “inciting rebellion and offending authorities.” Madero waited for the election results in prison only to find out that Diaz won through an electoral fraud. He then decided to escape prison and called for a National Insurrection, declaring the elections invalid and appointing provisional Governors. Uprising broke out in Mexican states, causing Diaz to resign and leave the country.

Madero was elected as the new president of Mexico after a new election in 1911. However, there were Revolutionary leaders who had different views with the new government and wanted immediate change which was impossible to achieve at that time. After Porfirist generals attacked him, Madero appointed Victoriano Huerta to repress the offensive. But this proved to be a big mistake as Huerta and his accomplices assassinated the president.

The Mexican Revolution

The victory of Huerta proved to be short-lived as a new Revolutionary movement rose with unparalleled force. This marked the emergence of the Constitutionalist Movement, prompting Huerta to leave the country in 1914.
Reforms immediately were underway with the Constitution in 1917. There were still fighting amount the revolutionary groups up until 1920, but harmony was finally restored and Mexico was back to enjoying liberty and democracy.

Feel the Rush in the Baja 1000 Off-Road Race

Considered as the grandfather of all desert races for many years now, the Baja 1000 is a top attraction for racers and racing fans in Los Cabos. This year, the 49th Bud Light Score Baja will run from November 16th to the 20th. Although the course traditionally alternates between a La Paz and an Ensenada finish, this year will include Baja California with a start and finish in Ensenada.

Events will start rolling on the 15th as satellite monitoring equipment and chassis inspections will happen. The following day, the racers will start to arrive for check in. On Thursday, the racers and their crews will attend meetings and tech inspections, as well as conferences with all sportsmen and crews come evening. The race will finally kick off on the 18th at 6 AM in Ensenada along the Lazaro Boulevard. The ATV and motorcycle classes will jump off the event with a new rider starting every 30 seconds, before bigger vehicles will start their classes at 11:30 AM.

The Baja 1000 Off Road Race

The 840-mile course comes with four checkpoints and uses a 35-mile stretch to Oso Negros on both directions, covering the two sides of peninsula and paralleling Highway 1 for almost half of the race. It will then look south back to the Pacific before crossing below Puertocitos to the other side of the Peninsula. The course will then go back North going along the Sea of Cortez, through San Felipe and to the junction with Highway 3. As it parallels Highway 3, the rugged course will travel west before it goes back northwest to Ojos Negros and the Ensenada finish line.
Ever since it started in 1967, the Baja 1000 has gone through several changes over the years, but it still remains as one of world’s top desert races. Some of the most popular actors who are into this sport are Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, and James Garner. The sport also has its own celebrities as well, including Johnny Johnson, Rod Hall, Robby Gordon, Johnny Campbell, Ron Bishop and Larry Roesseler. Some of these racers are also participants this year.

The Baja 1000 Off Road Race

To experience the Baja 1000 is definitely an experience of a lifetime. And it’s made even easier this year with the live tracking and coverage of the race, so you can join in on the action wherever you are in the world. Still, nothing beats being there in person, joining in on the camp outs with other fans, and watching out for the vehicles at specific turns on the race course.

Real Estate Sustainable Views in Los Cabos

Real estate sustainable views in Los Cabos is achievable in four simple steps. Let us share our expertise so you can avoid decision errors that can possibly bring disappointments in the future. On our previous post, we talked about Los Cabos zoning. If you haven’t read it yet, please check it out to have a better understanding of the topic. It will give you an idea of how important the following is: know about the different zoning types and how to maintain real estate sustainable views in Los Cabos.

Tips on How to Obtain Real Estate Sustainable Views in Los Cabos

See the View by Being Close to the View

Real Estate Sustainable Views in Los Cabos AT0 zone near waters

Hacienda Beach for $5,700,000.00

Perhaps this is the most effective tip on obtaining a sustainable view. If you want to avoid getting your view blocked, you can get a property that is close to the water. Beachfront real estate properties are the best! Avoid hassles from developers who decide to build a hotel or condo on the vacant land in front of your view. There will be no vacant land. it will all be sand and water.

Nobody can possibly build on the water, right? Not unless a huge corporation decides to cover the water with an artificial land. It is highly improbable for this to happen but it is definitely possible; a huge corporation can turn the water into lands as long as they find a cost effective way to do it. We’ve seen it in Dubai where they built the Burj al Arab Hotel. There also another example in the Philippines. They built one of the largest malls in Asia, the SM Mall of Asia.

Your best way to get real estate sustainable views in Los Cabos is to stay close to the waters. It may be more expensive than others but it is a guaranteed solution.

Away from the Water, Start to Know Better

Not everyone has the budget to get a sustainable view near the water. Not everyone is willing to take the risks of living close to the sea. If you plan to get a location away from the waters, you should start educating yourself about the location of the property. You must think about all the aspects and factors that can possibly affect the view in the future. We suggest you start reading and digesting information about the zoning all throughout the Los Cabos Municipality. Generally, if you see a vacant land on AT0 zones (zones close to the waters) it is possible for developers to block your view with 6-story buildings. On the other hand, if you see a vacant land on RT0 and RT1 zones (residential zones farther away from the waters), it is possible for developers to build 4-story buildings.

Another thing you should look into is the requirements for developers to build a new building. If there is a development oversight on the property location, you should also know more about it so you can fight for it in the future. There are areas in Los Cabos that have building height restrictions to avoid view destruction. Some locations are Cabo Bello, Pedregal, and Palmilla. Other areas even restrict adding terraces and other features that can potentially block a view. The good thing about these requirements is that they can be obtained in both English and Spanish.

Get an Ethical and Trustworthy Real Estate Professional

Real Estate Sustainable Views in Los Cabos AgentNow that you already know some basic information about zoning in Los Cabos, the next thing you must do is to find a real estate agent, realtor, or better yet, a broker! Inquire and ask questions about the location and do not be afraid to ask about zoning rules.

You can ask many real estate professionals and decide who is the most ethical and trustworthy. You should use your best judgment in weighing if everything is just to make a sale or if the professional is there to provide genuine help and service. It pay to be wary when hiring a real estate professional!

Red Flags

Real Estate Sustainable Views in Los Cabos Red FlagsIf the professional you are dealing with says something different from what you have read, ask more questions and clear things up. Of course, use the data you already know and inquire to avoid confusions. There may be updates about zoning rules you need to know. Please diligently ask about what confuses you too. Some red flags to watch out for are the following: if the professional tells you that the highest building that can be built on the vacant land is 1 to 3 stories only, if the professional refuses to share full disclosure about the zoning in the area, and if the professional avoids the topic and chooses to say nothing about it.

Another red flag is when the real estate professional shares careless reasons that the land is owned by the city or the natives who will never allow developers to build on the land. First, nothing is permanent. The land can be sold in the future. Second, it is always the zoning that matters and not the person who owns it. Once the land is sold, you will not have any say or control on what the developers build. It is better to know about the zoning in as early as now.

If the real estate professional tells you not to worry about the vacant land because it is specially zoned and protected, get a lawyer and verify if the facts are true.

At the end of the day, you must get a real estate professional that is not only knowledgeable about zoning but is also not afraid to acknowledge the risks zoning rules

Make an Offer Based on Facts and Risks

Once you have gathered facts and risks, you should make an offer based on the probability of losing the sustainable view of the property. If you see that the probability of losing the picturesque ocean view is high, include your facts on the offer and ask for a lower price. If you do lose the view sometime in the future, at least, you paid for a more reasonable price. Give yourself a pat on the back as you did your part well prior to your purchase. There is not specific rule or law that can protect all views right now so better know what you are getting into. Once it happens, you already know the fact and have long accepted it could happen.

Real Estate Sustainable Views in Los Cabos: Conclusion

We strongly believe that real estate sustainable views in Los Cabos should have a zoning reform or a sight-line protection. For the meantime, we suggest all buyers to practice diligent in their purchase, especially if the property offers a good view of the ocean. All efforts to avoid disappointments in the future must start from the buyer. You must refuse in buying a property if you see that the view is not sustainable. If you do get the property, make sure to get a better price based on risks.  If you have more questions about owning a property in Los Cabos, you may call us at +1-310-860-6063 (US) or +52 1 624 688 6841 (Mexico). Are you ready to find out how you can enjoy life to the fullest?

Los Cabos Zoning

Los Cabos Zoning is an important factor any real estate buyer should consider before buying a real estate property. Why? Well, let us answer your question with another question to better understand its significance. Would you pay and arm and leg for a property with a beautiful view and regret every ounce of your decision in the future when the beautiful view gets blocked? Not at all right? As you may already know, Los Cabos is one of the fastest growing retirement vacation destinations in North America. This only means that developers can build buildings, hotels, resorts, condos, and numerous more in the future and potentially block your valuable view.

Let’s dig deeper into the topic. A good way to start is to understand the terms.

What is a Sustainable View?

A sustainable view refers to whether or not the zoning and development of the land between your property and your view will change.  It is a matter of whether you will be able to retain the beautiful landscape view visible from your property for a lifetime. A property with a picturesque view will surely be more expensive compared to other properties so you better be aware of the rules. In the end, it all boils down to one question. How long can you sustain the view your property offers?

What is Los Cabos Zoning?

Los Cabos Zoning Map Transpeninsular Highway

Credits: Cabo

If you specifically want to get a property with a great view, you should be looking for AT0, RT0, and RT1 land zones. AT0 means Turistico Hotelero or Tourism and Hotels. A land classified as an AT0 land zone is located from the water to the trans-peninsular highway in Los Cabos. On the other hand, RT0 means Residential Turistico or Residential and tourism. Generally speaking, the south of the highway is AT0 while the north of the highway is RT0. Lastly, RT1 is similar to RT0. However, this type of land zoning only applies to the Pedregal area and Land ends.

What are the Top Reasons that Can Change your View?

There are four main reasons that can lead to blocking your view: when developers use empty lands to build new homes in gated communities, when developers meet requirements and use vacant lands to build four to six stories of hotels and condos, when the current owner of the land doesn’t allow tall buildings but gets paid off, and when politicians change or reclassify zoning laws.

How Can I Prevent Los Cabos Zoning Changes that Can Potentially Block my View?

If you see an empty land on your view, consider it as a threat to your sustainable view. Always talk about this with your developer or share your thoughts with the home owners association.  Perhaps, you can also use this threat to get the price of your property at a more agreeable value.

Since you already have an idea on land zoning types in Los Cabos and you know the possible reasons that can change your view, you should also get a full map so you can instantly see what can possibly happen to the empty areas in front of your property. Bear in mind that developers can build up to 6 stories of hotels and condos on empty AT0 areas. On the other hand, developers can build up to 4 stories of hotels and condos both RT0 and RT1 areas.

Conclusion

We have seen many cases of blocked views on different types of properties. In fact, it happens a lot in Los Cabos. Unfortunately, there is no law or any form of protection for owners to maintain an expensive but spectacular view. As long as developers follow the zoning rules, they will be able to build more buildings to generate profit.

In El Tezal, the Tramonti project blocked the views of high-end homes in the Hermitage. A huge hotel in La Jolla San Jose is now blocking the views of many residents. At the end of the day, there is no secret formula that can maintain a view, you simply have to be diligent about Los Cabos zoning prior to buying your property. The most effective way for you to avoid disappointments in the future is to practice diligence and patience. Do not poke the price bear!  We’ve seen it happen quite a lot and we do not want it to happen to you. If you have more questions about owning a property in Los Cabos, you may call us at +1-310-860-6063 (US) or +52 1 624 688 6841 (Mexico). Are you ready to find out how you can enjoy life to the fullest?
