Our Story:
10 years ago we decided we would like to try living in Mexico.  We had been going there for years as tourists and thought that living there would be great. We looked all around Mexico and decided that Los Barriles in Baja was the best town for us.

We told ourselves we would give it 6 months, and if we didn't like it we could move back to San Francisco. 10 years later, we are still here, and we feel that moving to Mexico was one of the best things we have ever done. 

Our goal is to help you decide if you'd like to move to here, and to answer questions you have about moving to Baja.​  John & Camilla Ford, May 2012
