If you lived in Los Cabos in a residential area your neighbors would mostly be Americans or foreigners and they would be nice people. If you’re not in one of those areas, you will be living in the areas where there would be mostly Mexicans living, which would be fun but probably louder.
There is not a lot of mixing of the communities in Cabo. The North Americans are in gated communities or they are in big projects where they have their own housing and roads.
The same is not the case in La Paz. La Paz does have a few areas where are gated communities but the communities are more homogenous. You can have in a block two or three Americans and 7 houses of Mexicans.
Then there are several little towns in the area. For example, in El Sargento, where I live, about 40 minutes south of La Paz on La Ventana Bay, your neighbors would mostly be Mexicans: fishermen, mothers and kids. There are areas that have been developing apart from the main towns in these areas. So those newer areas, your neighbors will be Americans or Canadians.
