That was such an interesting program!  There is some excellent information on the port of Guaymas and the expansion efforts are quite impressive.  This was aired yesterday on PBS in Arizona.  Thanks for posting.

I really do not understand why we would laud more growth in our area. Industrial ports like Guaymas and Long Beach create a lot of pollution and the transportation industry does not bring near enough local employment to justify that. More traffic, crime, demand for fresh water and tourists are other factors that affect us. So while I understand the business community's desire to promote, I am pretty sure we as retired residents are better off as we are. Semana Santa traffic is a boon for business', but not for me and what I enjoy about San Carlos

I am with Bullshipper on this one, especially when I have spent many years in the two ports/Cities he mentions.

It seemed like a paid-for puff piece to me. 

Indeed, it was very positive. But it glossed over many of the ongoing issues in SC (water infrastructure, sewage, trash, speeding on streets, reduction of access to beaches).

A couple of those interviews were WAY too long, especially the ones with Cordero and the guy on the beach from AZ. That was clearly padding to get it to the half hour mark. I thought the program's pacing dragged. 

BTW, I am in the camp that we don't need much more development until some of those issues above are solved, especially water and sewage. But, like everywhere, it's the businesses that call the shots in SC.

It seems like, in most all cases, when someone is clamoring for more development/tourism in SC, it is someone with a large vested interest (not simply a homeowner). Follow the money.

Do we REALLY want SC to become like Bucerias or La Cruz? Once upon a time, they were a sleepy little area, too. Sometimes "progress" isn't actually a good thing.

Have to agree with the last few posters . I like San Carlos the way it is, more tourists is not in my best interest for sure , for all of the above mentioned reason.

I completely agree with the latests posts on the growth issue. As a person who lives on a fixed income, all that growth brings is higher prices.

Very informative and helpful.  Change can't be stopped but it can be shaped.

I'm rather surprised that there hasn't been more discussion on either board about the new development plans that have become public from the Llano family. Those are some major developments.


My information is second hand (from someone who attended a meeting where Octavio Llano discussed his plans) but it includes a medical center/hospital, a new marina, a new shopping area and the complete renovation of the El Mirador RV park, complete with six new pickleball courts.


All of that development I first mentioned is supposed to take place between Triana and Seascape Plaza.

I was at that meeting and the location is out in the area of Bahia del Fin.  Also in that master plan is a golf course.

Thanks for the clarification, Don. I didnt see how they could get a marina in there, too.


Interesting. A new marina in a designated turtle nesting area. And some folks go ape-chit, when we walk our dogs on the beach over there, while conference centers and marinas are being planned. Ah, Mexico.

The most profound statement of all Jimmy! Everyone wants to be the "last to be admitted to Paradise". Suck it up, Buttercup, the Mexicans are coming.

Agree with Jimmy on this one. I first came here in 1971. Lots of changes, most of which I did not want. Let's face it, the people that will make decisions about the future of San Carlos don't care what retired gringos want anymore since they stopped coming in large numbers. It is what it is. As far as Guaymas, the development might bring some good paying jobs which is needed.

My comment that the video was positive only referred to the lack of doom and gloom in the piece. It was on local public television, not national news. Yes production quality might not have been top notch but non-negative news about Mexico has been rare.

Ha, ha  you guys , have you ever had a second thought that many people where here already over 20 years ago , my self included. Did you think for a moment that all those passed away already or have moved on ??  Yes, i have seen many changes over those years , most where good , but lets call it progress ....

Curious as to the changes "that were good"; changes that made something better for you than it was when you moved there?
