Hi folks,


Myself and two sons 14 and 16 will be arriving near the end of july to try our hand at living out the winter in San Carlos. I’m wondering if there are any other families with kids around the same age doing the same thing. We are three active fellas looking for adventure and fun. Avid sailors, divers, fisherman and surfers.


Cheers,


Dennis

You will cook in July. Think November.

Good advice....Starts to cool in October. Great bi-lingual schools, if interested. Home schooling is very easy online. I sent my girls to a great school in Guaymas, but Spanish was their first language, so made it easy. You can find schools in Guaymas that are bi-lingual, and a great experience for the children.

Indeed, it looks like the pre-summer period where humidity never drops below 50% has begun a little early.

Usually by mid July, especially if thunderstorms have dropped a significant amount of rain onto the ground, daytime humidity levels will stay above 70%. At night it will be around 85-90%.

Yeah, it very rarely gets to triple digits in San Carlos in the summer months. All that moisture in the air simply won't allow it.

Nothing compares to the experience of driving up from San Carlos to Phoenix in August. You can leave in 85F and 80% humidity and arrive in 115 and 10% humidity. No single experience in my life has been a better indicator of the phrase ".....but it's a dry heat." The APPARENT temperature of Phoenix can actually feel much more pleasant.

Well, as pleasant as 115F CAN feel. Pleasant is probably not the right word. Maybe more TOLERABLE is better.

BTW, if anyone is observing my personal weather station in the NE Ranchitos on Weather Underground, disregard the humidity readings. The hygrometer in my station has apparently failed. Use another station in San Carlos OR add about 35-40% to what it is reading.

Thank you. I’ll look into Guaymas and see what i can find. 


Thank you all for the heat concern, and maybe a good idea to wait a bit, however we currently live in Patagonia az and while not a lot of humidity, it’s pretty hot!

I lived in Rio Rico for 20 years and owned a home and boat in San Carlos - I would only go to SC in July to fish, because it was more bearable when you got offshore, if there was a breeze. We would run four units, 10 tons AC capacity 24/7 to be able to sleep comfortably. There is no comparison to living at 4,000 feet elevation in AZ and being at sea level in Guaymas!

Denrango,
As a full time resident, I respect the snowbirds who don’t want to be here for the summer months.  
But I can’t say I share their desire to dissuade you from visiting San Carlos when your schedule or desires dictate.
I happen to enjoy the summers in San Carlos and encourage you to bring your family to find out for yourself how suited you are for the area in summer.


There are a lot of full time gringo residents here, as well TONS of Mexicans who manage to enjoy life here all summer, every year, for a long time.


Now, hopefully, someone will respond to your initial inquiry.


I hope you enjoy your stay in San Carlos whenever you decide to visit.

I work outdoors and we start at 6, knocking off at 2. If I am out in the sun for more than 2 hrs, I  have to run to the office AC.  Weekends, I am a shut in avoiding the heat, bored to be inside.

Temperatures from 4000 feet to sea level will typically be 12-16F hotter.  Now add in humidity that will be around 70-90%., and to me thats like adding another 15-20 degrees. Then the sun being on you, UV 10, and it still being 90 3 hrs after sunset  and our lack of rin to cool things off more often are a few of the reasons why I dread the summers on the coast. The mountains also see more cloudy days. If I didn't have to finish this project, I would be in the San Bernadino Mountains in Ca at 2500 feet playing golf every afternoon.

So a trip to even cooler Patgonia sounds like heaven right now. But as Marigot says, its best to get first hand experience.
