Does your Mexican Land Trust have too much salsa in it?

By Orlando Gotay, Tax Attorney

Retiree Mecca: Los Cabos

los cabos los arcos

At the tip of Baja California Sur is a place of dualities. Tranquility and rambunctiousness. San Jose del Cabo which retains the look and vibe of an authentic Mexican town. Cobblestone streets, intimate restaurants and boutiques radiate from the central main square and mission church. Rambunctious Cabo San Lucas, on the other end of the highway (called the Corridor), is party central with funky bars and the slick Luxury Avenue Mall centered around the marina.
