Sigh. I just read a Rio Rico review that must have been written by someone eager to sell property. I have lived here for over 11 years, after moving from Tucson. I am glad I moved, because I sought more space and privacy, and a lower cost of living. Let me also add that I grew up in the Southwestern United States. The mountain views here can be beautiful, there is still plenty of peace and quiet available, and living is relatively inexpensive. Many lots are larger so that even when this sparsely developed area becomes more developed, there will still be some breathing room, and space for wildlife. However, I would hardly call living here luxurious, unless one spends all one's time in nearby Tubac and its resorts, or builds a mini palace. Rio Rico's population is about 20,000, and it has the expected amenities for a town that size: a small supermarket, a small pharmacy, a few restaurants and bars, a vet, a health clinic, an auto shop, and other basic services. It's just rural to small town living with a "close to the border" twist. The housing and job market here was terribly depressed by the economic downturn in 2008, and it took a decade for the area's livelihood to return. Those considering relocation here should also realize that if you are not Hispanic, you will be the minority in this county.
