We immigrated to the US from Europe & settled in Phoenix renting an apartment. In time others told us of 'cheap' properties & affordable living costs in Puerto Penasco ,Mexico. When we went down there & visited the real estate offices. They were all owned and operated by people from right back up in the US. The restaurants & bars we went to were also just owned by people from the US.
Overall we found the costs of living, property prices, shopping, availability of products & goods, and the stability of living in the US (Phoenix) far more affordable.
Phoenix has lots of Mexican Restaurants with food just like Penasco. They have shrimp & sea food even cheaper than driving the hundreds of miles down to Mexico....and going through long waits at a border,etc.
We bought a house in Phoenix in a very nice neighborhood far cheaper than the US real estate agents in Penasco were trying to sell us condo's.

Everybody knows what you explained, but things you live in Rocky Point is far far away what you can actually live in Phoenix. Is not the restaurants, shrimps, or cosmopolitan live what the people look for when coming here, but landscaping, watersports, weather (more humidity than arizona's), beach, party, equity, retirement community, freedom. If you are not looking for one of these, forget about rocky point.

shrimp is different, in Phoenix. Mexico shrip is wild caught and tastes so much better. And Phoenix shrimp is farm raised from thailand and india. Phoenix has no beach and rocky point does. Huge difference.
