Rincon Del Diablo

Rincon del Diablo is an unincorporated community in San Diego County, California. Because it predates Escondido and other geopolitical boundaries, it does not necessarily correspond to present day definitions. It encompasses the city of Escondido to the north and west and San Pasqual Valley neighborhood of San Diego to the southeast.

Western and northern parts of the community contain low-density semi-rural housing. Southeastern part is agricultural. The Orfila winery[1] is located on the border between Rincon del Diablo and San Diego.

The community is divided between zip codes 92025 and 92027. The area code is 760. In part, is within the "sphere of influence" of Escondido, and therefore those parts may eventually be annexed to the city. Current city policies [2] prevent the city from actively seeking annexation of new land and require property owners to petition to be annexed, a slow and expensive process.[3]

It shares the name with the original Rancho Rincon del Diablo that included the city of Escondido and surrounding areas in the 19th century. Rincon del Diablo means "Devil's Corner" in Spanish.

The United States Census Bureau does not provide demographic estimates for the community. Rincon Del Diablo includes census tract 207.06 of San Diego County. According to SANDAG estimates, total population of census tract 207.06 is 6,159 people. Median household income is $116,487. 19.2% are under the age of 18 and 17.3% are over 65. Median age is 46.1 years. Ethnic makeup is 76.5% non-Hispanic White, 15.7% Hispanic, 4.4% Asian / Pacific Islander.[4] In 2008, there were 4,572 registered voters in the community.
