Another episode of HGTV’s Mexico Life was shot in Cabo San Lucas, featuring Jeff Schmidt as the real estate agent, along with his clients Justin and Lisa. The couple wanted to focus on something close to downtown, with a minimum of two bedrooms, but ideally three or more. The maximum budget was $650,000 (with financing). With that healthy budget, Jeff helped the couple find a great property.
The Communities Featured in the Episode
The couple searched two different communities in Los Cabos: Cabo Bello and Copala.
Cabo Bello is about a five-minute drive from central downtown Cabo San Lucas, on the Sea of Cortez side of the Pacific. The ocean side community has a great, semi-private beach. The beach is calm enough to swim, snorkel, and stand up paddle board. Another great perk of the beach is that it is pet-friendly.
The community also has 24-hour gated security with cameras. They have trash pick-up three times a week, and they spray for mosquitos a couple of times a week.
Cabo Bello is conveniently located by Home Depot and Blue Net hospital.
Copala is located on the Pacific side of town, just five minutes from the Pedregal side of downtown Cabo San Lucas.
Copala is one of the communites in the Quivira development. The Quivira development encompasses over a thousand total acres of land.
One of the great benefits of owning in Copala is that you get access to all of the Pueblo Bonito hotels (such as Sunset Beach, Rose and the Blanco) and their amenities.
Other amenities include a beach club, a clubhouse that has restaurants, a fitness center, multiple pools and spas, a bar, a convenience store, a theatre room, parks, and great walking trails and sidewalks. The community has a resort feel; it has everything you need so you don’t have to leave.
Many of the current owners in Copala enjoy the Jack Nicklaus 18-hole golf course. The golf course is also expanding, with another 18 holes coming in 2019 (for a total of 36 holes).
Other Filming Locations Featured in the Episode
While taping the episode, the clients, Justin and Lisa, enjoyed the great cuisine at Agua Salada restaurant. They also filmed in and around downtown Cabo San Lucas.
