Paraiso del Mar is located in Baja California Sur along the famed Sea of Cortez, and is an easy ferry ride to downtown La Paz. A peninsula that feels like an island, Paraiso is a retreat in and of itself— but with access to the restaurants, nightlife, and culture of La Paz. Here, homeowners enjoy 800 acres of mangrove preserves, wildlife sanctuaries, and a biological corridor, plus unfettered access to the glassy waters of the Sea of Cortez.
Baja California Sur
The southern half of the Baja Peninsula is the state of Baja California Sur, bordered by Baja California to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Sea of Cortez to the east. While Baja California Sur is well known for the resort area of Los Cabos, it is also home to La Paz, which has amazing beaches and authentic charm. A few of the state’s lesser-known towns include Todo Santos, historic Loreto, with its sundrenched islands, and picturesque Comondu.
The capital of Baja Sur, La Paz appeals to many because of its cherished history, authentic vibe and peaceful way of life. La Paz offers old world charm and a slower pace than touristy Los Cabos, but still has the amenities and allure that Mexico is all about: beautiful beaches, easy living, arts and music, and great food.
Sea of Cortez
The Gulf of California, also known as the Sea of Cortez, is a natural wonder. Undersea explorer Jacques Cousteau famously called it “the world’s aquarium,” and for good reason. Nearly 900 species of fish and 39% of the world’s marine mammals live here, making it an ecological wonder—and a diver’s paradise.
The many volcanic islands in the Gulf and contrasting coastal desert makes this a spectacular place to explore. Fishermen, divers, sailors, and boaters celebrate the Sea of Cortez for its rugged beauty and biodiversity.
Living at Paraiso del Mar, you can savor the Sea of Cortez lifestyle: beach lounging by day, sunset cruising by night. Swimming with sea lions at Isla Espiritu Santo. Whale watching as hundreds of whales travel from the Bering Sea to the warm, calm waters off Baja California Sur every winter. This is the Sea of Cortez, Paraiso’s playground.
