Mostly agriculture and military. House prices increasing due to influx from California. If you’re moving here from San Diego, you’ll be disappointed with the Mexican food. It’s not the Baja style you’re accustomed to. It’s Sonoran style. Oh, and be ready for 120+ temps during summer.

Yuma is called the “Hell Hole” by the Marines that come here to train. It is very hot in summer. They like to visit the bars and grocery stores. At this time everyone has to wear a mask when they are in a public place. Some people like it here.
