Well Carnaval is finally over.  A lot of people were in town for the week long event.  There were parades with floats, a King and Queen with their courts.  Also lots of loud music, amusement rides, vendors selling food, drinks, bread, blankets and all of the usual trinkets found at fairs.


Traffic on the Malecon is getting back to normal with the removal of all the booths, electrical wires, stages, etc.


Speaking of the Malecon.  The Malecon is becoming a regular real estate row.  We now have about 12 real estate businesses and a Conficasa International mortgage loan office on the Malecon.  Plus about four other offices a block or so off the Malecon.


Conficasa is now making real estate loans for primary or second homes throughout Mexico.  Contact me if you are interested in a loan to buy a home in Mexico.  About all you need is good credit and you can pre-qualify.


A couple of the new developments are now under construction and the homes are being pre-sold.  There are some nice homes in gated areas and the prices run from about $125,000 to about $200,000.  Only five lots remaining for homes a block from the beach and priced between $150,000 and $180,000 depending on the model.  Completion 6 months from the time you make a deposit and signing of the purchase contract.


For the cruisers and boaters the La Paz Bay Fest will be held April 20 to 24th.


Have a nice March and don’t drink too much green beer on St. Patrick’s Day.
