Will be moving

Postby thjohnson58 » Wed Jul 08, 2020 6:49 pm

Hello
My wife is from La Punta. We will be buying something in the next year to spend probably 6 months a year, maybe more. I don't care to live La Punta, We are beach people now. We attended a wedding last year in Mancora, beach was great, neighborhood behind the beach, not so good. We have stayed in MIa Flores, nice but what to do all day. Any jobs??? Maybe look somewhere else up North??

Hi there. Welcome to the forum.

You'd need to give us a little more to go on regarding your likes/dislikes, budget and expectations before we can venture a reply.

Thanks for the response
We will be fine money wise. I just can't stand the thought of big city living. I lived in Manhattan for a year and did not care for that life style. I went nuts doing nothing in La Punta for two weeks. Maybe I am better off up North in my own place. I am a Florida boy and always had the water at my back door and lots of room. Guess I answered my own question.
We will rent for a while. Maybe move around some and figure it out.
I don't like where the states are headed.

"Fine money wise" is kind of vague and relative, but if you liked the beach at Máncora and not so much the town behind it, you might be interested in some of the other beaches nearby, like Pocitas, Vichayito, Organos, or up North a bit, Punta Sal up to Zorritos. Other than Organos, pretty much all of those other beaches are on the beach instead of being set back a bit from the beach. None of them are as built up as Máncora, most are no more than what's on the coastal access road.

This website might be of help/interest.

Hello Th,

La Punta is a nice location. It was founded by Italian Migrants ...

I live not to far from there... Magdalena del Mar

Do you have any experience in building or sailing boats as monohull or multihulls ( as Catamaran ) ?

It must be exciting living in Arequipa and looking at Misti in the distance and wondering when the next eruption will be.
