Hey! What’s all this fuss about capital gains?  Isn’t that when I sell for more money than I bought for?
Yes, that’s exactly what it is, and it applies in Mexico, just like in other countries.  Profits on the sale of your home are considered income earned, and the government wants its share…35% of it!  There are some factors that have come together in recent years that have made this an issue for folks that bought at the top of the market…pre-2008 and through 2013.  Click HERE to read about these factors and what steps you can take to make sure you don’t pay more than you need to.
Off Road Adventures in Baja
When you live in La Paz, a whole world of adventure lies just outside your door in just about any direction. While there is no shortage of beaches and towns easily reachable by car, so much more of Baja’s magic is found along coastal, desert and mountain trails that defy 2-wheel drive. That’s why you’ll see many La Paz locals whizzing around on all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and side-by-side utility task vehicles (UTVs). On an ATV/UTV, you can access deserted miles of shoreline, remote towns and villages, fish camps where fresh seafood is caught and sold, desert canyons and so much more.
There are several informal off-road groups that plan rides together, which is safer than going it alone, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the trails. On a recent weekend, we headed out with a group that call themselves the Moto Geezers. Our destination: San Evaristo, a small bayside village a few hours north of La Paz with a tiny restaurant that we had heard serves amazing fresh fish tacos.
