The Resort Neighborhoods of Paraiso del Mar are crafted to invite the simple ingredients of genuine living. They are unpretentious and grounded in the fabric of a peaceful Mexican town, La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico, The City of Peace, that embodies values reminiscent of simpler times in the 1950’s or 60’s.
Life at Paraiso del Mar becomes a celebration of Mexico, with its rich history, great weather, spicy and varied cuisine, abundant fresh seafood, delicious drinks, warm, friendly, courteous people with a zest for life and simple human values that are rare in the world today.
Here, life achieves a pace more in sync with the natural rhythms of the moon and the tide. Neighbors are friends, people from diverse backgrounds and interests, who would be fun to play golf with or go fishing with or just have over for a margarita. The sense here–that seems to rise from the land itself–is one of respect, for the human spirit, the value of family and friendship, the natural beauty of the land and the sea, with the endless possibilities for joy they provide.
A sense of community depends on strong neighborhoods. Each of the seven neighborhoods of Paraiso del Mar will be 50-90 acres with a unique mix of uses, fully sustainable, and including a plazita, beach club, restaurant and trailheads. The casas and villas have been designed to provide exceptional value without sacrificing quality.
The ocean surrounds the site, providing five miles of beach frontage on the Sea of Cortez. Special care has been given to double the usual beachfront setbacks to preserve the dunes and provide room for a beachfront trail that encompasses the entire community. With so much ocean to play in, every day invites a new adventure, whether it’s fly fishing from the beach, sea kayaking, sailing, snorkeling with the sea lions and dolphins, scuba diving or just catching some sun with a cold drink.
This is a place of natural splendor, with species that are unique to the area. Preservation of habitat requires hundreds of acres of mangrove remain completely untouched. It means a wildlife migration corridor through the center of the land. It requires a golf course designer like Arthur Hills, renowned for his ability to maintain the natural land contours and plant life in his designs. In this way, the centuries old elephant trees and the magnificent ocotillo and native cacti will remain as they have always been.
