CostaBaja Resort & Spa in Mexico.
Experience a stress-free holiday season in the "City of Peace" at CostaBaja Resort & Spa, a 5-star beachfront retreat overlooking a scenic mountain range and the balmy Sea of Cortez, dubbed the "Aquarium of the World" for its rich biodiversity.
Currently accommodating guests displaced by Hurricane Odile further down the Baja California coast in Los Cabos last month, CostaBaja has holiday availability for travelers looking to truly relax and create unforgettable memories with loved ones. The resort is fully operational and suffered no storm damage.
CostaBaja is situated on 550 acres of environmentally protected coastal lands 10 minutes from downtown La Paz, a cultural pearl known as the "City of Peace" that was named a top 10 place in the world to retire by the New York Times. The resort's luxurious hotel accommodations are the perfect home-away-from-home for the holidays and include private, furnished balconies with marina, mountain and ocean views. CostaBaja is also home to the region's finest destination spa, Mexico's only Gary Player-designed golf course, three pools, a 250-slip double-basin marina and, multiple onsite dining choices that include one of Mexico's finest restaurants.
Relax at the resort or head out to explore the amazing Sea of Cortez, dubbed the "Aquarium of the World" by Jacques Cousteau. Glide by boat or kayak to nearby Espiritu Santo Island, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Bio-Reserves, alongside humpback and gray whales migrating to the balmy Baja California Sur for winter. Snorkel or dive amid schools of vibrantly colored fish and coral reefs, and meet a playful colony of sea lions as enamored with you as you are with them. La Paz also offers some of the world's best sportfishing, with coveted species such as black and blue marlin, Dorado and Wahoo plentiful. On land, explore ancient cave paintings dating to 10,000 B.C., experience an off-road desert excursion or visit a beautiful cactus sanctuary.
Look and feel your picture-perfect holiday best after a visit to the Espiritu Spa at CostaBaja, featuring custom crafted essential oil blends or choose from other holistic wellness and beauty treatments. Spend the evening under the impossibly bright stars while enjoying sweeping ocean views and world-class cuisine. Onsite dining choices include Steinbecks, CostaBaja's signature restaurant where one of Mexico's top chefs, Alejandro Villagomez, works his culinary magic using local ingredients and seafood caught fresh daily.
