San Felipe is located on the Sea of Cortez about 125 miles south of the Calexico / Mexicali crossing at the border of California. The remote desert community is home to approximately 25,000 residents. The population swells at peak seasons for hunting and fishing, Baja races, boat racing, and of course, major holidays.
Within reasonable driving distance to Southern California, San Felipe is perfect for a weekend retreat from the hectic American lifestyle all year round. Temperature averages range from 60° in the winter to 95° in the summer months. Temperatures at night can reach as low as 40° in the winter to daytime highs of 115° in the summer. As San Felipe is a coastal town with a desert atmosphere, proper clothing and light jackets are always appropriate.
Although San Felipe is still considered a fishing port with shrimping a major industry, the economy thrives on tourists and real estate investments. A large number of foreign guests visit San Felipe each year for the weather, the activities, and the beach. Many purchase properties, invest in real estate, and make San Felipe a home away from home.
With so many fun and relaxing activities, an attractive nightlife, enjoyable restaurants, and beautiful sandy beaches, San Felipe should be in your travel plans. Contact Sea Side Mexico for more information and assistance in finding the perfect vacation rental property.
