Punta Banda Retirement Profile

With the almost perfect yearround climate, majestic cliffs and ocean views and fine restaurants in Ensenada, Punta Banda could be an ideal place to retire. There are several low budget retirement communities here. The only downside, is that by being so close to the border, many of the houses are vacent except on weekends. Still, a very magical place.
