If you are looking for affordable vacation rentals in Mexico, there are several cities located a short drive over the U.S./Mexico Border that offer some great furnished rentals. Crossing the border in Nogales Arizona to Nogales Mexico will take you to Mexico Highway #15, which takes you south to San Carlos. San Carlos is a favorite with sport fishermen and divers due to the clear blue waters of the Sea of Cortez. Surrounded by beautiful mountains and ocean waters, you will find a variety of homes and condominiums rentals available with online bookings and onsite management. At the border crossing from Lukeville Arizona into Sonoyta Mexico, you will find Mexico Highway #8, which takes you south to Puerto Penasco, Rocky Point, Mexico. Rocky Point is a longtime favorite with travelers from all over the U.S. mainly because of the relaxed atmosphere and enjoyable activities and attractions. Many people have stayed in the smaller hotels in the past, or maybe at a local R.v. park and camp ground. Now, in 2009, you have the option to stay in a beautiful fully furnished resort or beach home rental in just about every location around town. Just a short drive from San Diego California is the Tijuana border crossing which can take you south on Mexico Highway #1 to Rosarito Mexico. Rosarito is another town that has a large repeat following. Rosarito is host to several International events like the Rosarito/Ensenada 50 Mile Bike Ride and the Baja 1000, and has some popular Surfing beaches as well. In Rosarito, you will find short term and long term rentals, and many with a gorgeous view of the ocean.
