Delicias

Delicias View
Delicias is an area in the hills just to the south of Montezuma. It has become known as one of the best places for foreign residents to move to. It’s quiet, with almost no crime. There are many waterfalls, big trees and jungles, and easy access to the beach and Cobano. Delicias also has two shortcut roads to Malpais and Santa Teresa, making it closer to those beaches than Montezuma is.

Delicias doesn’t really have much of a town center… it’s actually a very large cattle ranching region in the heart of the peninsula. There are two very small “pulperias” with a few basic groceries, a school, church, and soccer field, but not much else. Along the front of Delicias is a cliff, with a row of spectacular houses overlooking Playa Las Manchas and has become known as the Beverly Hills of the area. Yet, there are still many properties available for around $100,000 with some ocean views, 2-4 acres, big trees, water, electricity, accesss, etc. Delicias Real Estate prices are rising and it’s expected to ultimately be an extremely expensive area because it has so much to offer.

The area of Delicias is actually quite a bit older than most people realize. For example, the local school was founded in the 1920’s. This is many decades before the first cars, or electricity arrived in the area.
