4 Tips to Move From the U.S. to a Luxury Home in East Cape

With its unassuming sophistication, rich culture, and boundless opportunities for excitement, the luxurious East Cape is an opulent travel destination that makes an even more enchanting home.

If you plan on buying real estate in East Cape, just minutes from Cabo’s sunny shores, consider these tips to move from the U.S. to Mexico’s secluded coast.

  1. Get organized

    Start the international moving process strong by getting organized with your belongings, travel documents, and financial accounts.

    1. Personal belongings

      Have your house manager, assistant, or other personal staff member oversee the process by making a list prioritizing what furniture, clothing, and other essentials you definitely want to take to your new luxury home in Los Cabos.

      Think about or use a map of your new home’s layout, and go room by room to detail what you’ll pack, buy, or order to make things as streamlined and comfortable as possible upon arrival.

      Will you be keeping your current home? Decide what items can be sent at a later date.

      When it comes to clothing, shoes, and accessories, keep the current and upcoming season in mind–and remember to pack things in the event of unusual weather.

    2. Travel documents

      Make sure your passport and/or visas are valid, updated, and in hand at least six months or so prior to the move.

      Having your paperwork in order and properly prepared will alleviate anxiety and help you avoid any last-minute hassles.

      Do your due diligence when it comes to researching the latest visa requirements, and check them off your list well ahead of your departure date.

    3. Financial accounts

      On the financial front, you’ll want to inform your bank or other financial institutions of your upcoming move. Alerting your bank of the move ahead of time can keep you from incurring unnecessary fees or penalties.

      Establishing an international account or ensuring that your current international accounts are active and open is also a smart money move on your part.

      You will also want to arm yourself with knowledge of the local laws to avoid any potential legal missteps.

      Consult your financial advisor or planners with any lingering finance-related questions to ensure you’re as prepared as possible.

      By clearly articulating your desires and getting the ball rolling in these essential areas, you’ll be able to feel more confident and in control of your next steps ahead of the move.

  • Select a seasoned moving crew

    After buying real estate in East Cape, enlist the services of a highly reputable, trustworthy, and experienced moving company to coordinate the move.

    A professional, capable crew will make sure your belongings arrive safe, in pristine condition, and perfectly placed in your new abode’s proper location.

    They’ll also be able to skillfully assist your staff in choosing the right shipping method and navigating logistics surrounding international shipping and customs regulations.

    They will also be helpful in ensuring you don’t unknowingly violate any protocol.

  • Learn the language

    Immerse yourself in the language, culture, and customs of East Cape.

    Being able to speak like a local will not only help you better communicate, but you’ll also feel more aware, informed, and connected to what’s going on around you.

    Learning the language will allow you to read newspapers, understand and follow local broadcasts, and have your finger on the pulse of local happenings.

    If you’re moving to Los Cabos solo, this will be an integral part of your transition.

    If you’ll be bringing your family along for the adventure, you can all learn the language together for an added layer of bonding.

    The sooner you feel more settled in and a part of your surroundings, the more enjoyable your experience–and the next chapter–will be.

    You can utilize a number of language apps to learn the lingo yourself or hire a professional to help you develop your skills. Before you know it, you’ll converse like a native Spanish speaker.

  • Expand your social circle

    Another important part of starting your next chapter in East Cape includes establishing a sense of community around you. Put down roots by broadening your horizons–and your social scene.

    Get to know your neighbors by attending and participating in local events or volunteering with local organizations to give back to those in need in your new community.

    At the Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas, you can connect with a bevy of local residents, travelers, and expats alike in an array of settings that are perfect for socializing.

    Meeting and greeting expats, in particular, will afford you a unique opportunity for fellowship, support, and guidance with those in similar situations as you embark on life’s latest adventure.

    Gather around the pool or fire pit with your crew, sip, and sample delicious fare at the beachside bar, and drink in the stunning, sparkling view of the Sea of Cortez while making new acquaintances.

Celebrate your new home

Following these helpful tips, you can ease the stresses of moving and fast forward to the best part – living in the luxurious East Cape. What better way to toast a successful move than aboard your yacht?

Wind down another day in your fabulous new surroundings with a sunset cruise, sunset sport fishing, or rest and recharge in preparation to do it all over again the next day on an opulent overnight charter. It’s a great way to celebrate buying real estate in East Cape and becoming its newest resident.
