Our beautiful 2 bedroom / 3 bathroom 1500 sf condo is located right on the beach in Paraiso del Mar Resort in La Paz. It has additional 400 sf of covered terraces with access from every room. The condo has two large master suites each with their own bathroom and a King bed. It also features full kitchen, 10-ft ceilings, travertine floors and granite countertops. The living room has a Queen pull-out sofa bed. This unit C403 is on the 4th floor with a direct view of the ocean, 50-meter infinity pool, jacuzzi and the beach. The condo is beautifully furnished, decorated in warm Mexican colors, and well-stocked.
Paraiso del Mar is one-of-a-kind community with over 5-mile long virgin beaches, an Arthur Hills golf course and tennis courts. Free shuttle service operates on the property. Duffy electric boats shuttle between the downtown of La Paz and Paraiso del Mar. The water is produced on-site from reverse osmosis desalinization plants.
The Sea of Cortez is home for countless species of marine plants and animals, forming such a unique ecosystem that it was baptized by Jacques Cousteau as "The Aquarium of the World." You can watch dolphins right from the terrace of your condo. Or for closer encounters with marine life go on a sea kayaking and whale watching, or a fishing trip. The incredible island of Ispiritu Santo is just a short boat ride away.

My husband and I are software engineers. We bought our first vacation condo in Maui in 2002. Later we added another Maui condo and a house in Lake Tahoe to our rental portfolio. We recently traveled to La Paz, Mexico, and fell in love with the city, its people and the wondrous marine world of the Sea of Cortez. We are very lucky to have been able to acquire a condo in Paraiso del Mar – a very unique resort. We enjoy traveling to all three our vacation destinations, buying stuff for our vacation rentals, renting out and making new friends. Feel free to email with any questions about vacationing in Maui, Tahoe or La Paz.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2010
This is an absolutely unique location - on a private peninsula yet just a 10-minute boat ride from a downtown of the most charming and peaceful Mexican city, boasting excellent dining and entertainment. La Paz means "peace" and it lives true to its name. You will feel peaceful and happy under its vast skies, surrounded with Baja mountains and illuminated by the most beautiful sunsets in the world.
This unit has a million-dollar views and the balconies face north - straight at the sea - always shaded from the sun.
We had a wonderful time here! The condo has an amazing view and is well appointed. Excellent communication with owner and outstanding on-site manager (Maude). We swam with whale sharks, snorkeled with sea lions and enjoyed the beach. The transportation staff at the resort were amazing with door to boat service, always friendly and on time. The pool food was excellent, and the hot tub was fun! We would definitely return to this condo and resort. We did not rent a car as taxi's are plentiful and very inexpensive. My sister did rent a car and left it parked just outside the marina area for free.
We met some of the nicest people while staying here, people we still stay in contact with. The on-site manager always answered her phone if we had any questions, and the restaurant at the pool couldn't have been more accommodating. They would even prepare a custom meal if you put an order in the day before. The condo itself is beautiful; nothing like having a morning cup of coffee while taking in that view from the balcony!
The entire experience of renting this condo was superb. The communication from the owners and from the on-site manager was excellent. We have always wanted to stay at La Paz and now we could not imagine staying anywhere but this property. We rented a car and drove directly to the parking directions where we were met by lovely Maude who answered all our questions. Since we were told do not attempt to drive to the condo unless we had 4 wheel drive, we parked just outside the marina (free parking) across from the military quarters so we knew it was very safe. Using the 8 minute shuttle boat to and from the peninsula was super fun and reliable. The ground transportation was the same - everyone is friendly and helpful. Then we arrived at our condo and were totally thrilled at the grounds, the pool, the VIEW - everything. The condo is well appointed and has a great kitchen - its perfect. We loved sitting on the patio and looking at the pool, the sea and the Isla de Spiritu Santo. The condo is bigger than you expect. We could not figure out how to work the tv - which was one of the best parts of the trip - and the internet worked great. After eating at 3 supposedly great restaurants in town, we realized that the best and freshest food was down at the pool - 3 young people run it who ride the boat every day with fresh food. I can only say that we ate there every meal we could - it was truly SUPERB. I thought I would be cooking more, but did not because we knew we had found the best food around. They would ask each night what we wanted for the next day - shrimp, scallops, clams, lobster, and more. We cannot say enough about the food. Also note that we did walk on the beach a lot and maybe saw 8 people there the whole time (slow season). All in all - this place will only delight you and make you want to come back. Note: a couple of To Do items. Go to Bandalara and Tecolote Beaches. Bandalara is one of the most beautiful places EVER = go early and enjoy your long walk in the water, eat and drink the coconuts sold at the beach. Then go to the biggest restaurant on the beach in Tecolote where the food was fabulous. Ask locals about taking a boat from Tecolote for the Isla de Spiritu Santos tour - we took the tour from the marina and wish we would have done it different. All in all - staying here will be one of the best vacations in your life!!!
I chose this property for its combination of location, amenities and price. It exceeded my expectations considerably. The condo was even more spacious than the pictures conveyed. The balconies were extensive and gave a feel of even greater square footage. The property is perhaps the most exclusive and private of any within close distance to downtown La Paz. It is reached by a free water taxi from the La Paz marina. The boats run regularly and on time and is very easy on and off. You don't need a car here at all. If you can't get there on foot (and most places you can), taxis are plentiful and cheap. The condo has a beautiful pool and you can walk for one hour on the beach and never see another soul. Ours was in an excellent location within the property, had great peaceful views of the pool and ocean, was very quiet and tranquil, comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen with everything you might need, luxurious bathrooms and two master suites. The on-site property manager, Ana, was kind and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
Great condo! The place is in wonderful condition and has an gorgeous view from the balcony. The complex is just amazing. Paraiso Del Mar is a paradise, just as advertised. The golf course on the grounds is extremely challenging, affordable and fun. The beach is desolate, I ran every morning and didn't see a sole. The pool area is great and the fish tacos served at the poolside bar and grill are to die for and cheap! Staying out on the Paraiso Del Mar peninsula is wonderful and the boat ride into La Paz is so convenient and fun. La Paz itself is just a wonderful town. Quiet and serene, friendly natives, no crazy drunk Americans like Cabo, what a pleasure. Lastly I came down for the yellowtail and wasn't disappointed. I fished Bahia De Suenos and caught 35 pound class yellowtail everyday I went out, a real pleasure!
Our stay in La Paz was amazing. The condo was everything that it said it would be, very beautiful, clean and I would give it a 5*+. The city is very quaint and most things are within walking distance. There are many very good resturants to enjoy, although we enjoyed cooking some of the fresh catch of the day that we purchased at the local market. There are several tours that one can take and the tour guides are very knowledgable. All in all our stay at this condo was wonderful and we would certainly go again. The owner and the property manager are very easy to get along with. It was a great vacation.
