The majestic seaside setting is easily and safely accessed from the Arizona / Mexico border, about a five hour drive on a quality upgraded highway. General José María Yáñez International airport in Guaymas is fifteen minutes away and there is a larger international airport in the state capital, Hermosillo.

San Carlos has excellent English speaking medical and dental professionals and readily available well trained first responder services. There are quality hospitals in nearby Guaymas and the world class CIMA Hospital in Hermosillo is approximately 75 minutes away.

The building site for La Buena Vida at La Posada is a seaside property with magnificent views. It adjoins an existing resort on one of the most picturesque beaches in San Carlos, very close to the town centre and local amenities.
