It’s all about the pristine water at the five-star CostaBaja Resort and Spa, set on the Sea of Cortez only 10 minutes from Baja’s capital city, La Paz. The straightforward rooms nod to the surroundings with stained wood and deep blue headboards; they also feature glass-enclosed showers, 42-inch flat-screen TVs and balconies with views of the resort’s adjoining 250-slip marina. The vibe is mellow, but there are all the expected amenities (an 18-hole golf course, a 60-treatment spa menu, three pools, five restaurants) and lots of activities. But if you want to lounge by one of the infinity pools or sip refreshing cocktails from one of the few outdoor bars, you can do that, too. The open-air Steinbeck’s (named after John Steinbeck, whose novel The Pearl was inspired by a visit to the area) serves a range of beef and seafood dishes and has an extensive tequila list (more than 400 labels).
In the Area
Schedule a tee time at the nearby CostaBaja Golf Club, which is the first course in Mexico designed by Gary Player. The par-72 course includes 14 oceanside holes and has views to the west that provide spectacular sunsets. For a bit of nature, visit the uninhabited Isla Espiritu Santo, a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve just minutes from the hotel. And active types should take to the bright waters around La Paz, which are famous for their sportfishing; swing by the thatched downtown offices of Tailhunter — the company takes novices and experienced fishermen on boat trips to catch tuna, dorado, yellowtail, sailfish and marlin. Looking for some nighttime entertainment? The Orquesta Sinfónica de la Escuela de Música del Estado is a small but robust symphony orchestra, and it’s been going strong in La Paz for more than a decade.
How to Get There
One of the best places I’d ever been in company of my wife.
I took my wife for her birthday on November 2018.
It’s a very place that keeps you captive, you have everything within the venue, the best restaurants in La Paz are in the resort.
Everything is clean on all sorroundings, Pool area, Gym, rooms.
The Costabaja Beach Club is very nice. It has a restaurant where we tasted nice fish and cocktails.
Personal working in the hotel are very customer oriented, very professional people.
What more can I say, it’s a place that my wife and myself highly recommend.
This was our third stay at Costa Baja in La Paz. The entire experience was amazing as usual. The hotel was very clean and everything was excellent working order. The food was excellent and Steinbeck's restaurant was incredible as usual.
The best part about our trip is always the staff. They always have a smile on their face and really bend over backward to make our trip as enjoyable as possible. I would highly recommend both the city of La Paz and Costa Baja for a laid back Mexican vacation.
I loved this resort the moment I arrived. No problems, just tranquillity!! I enjoyed dinner outside near the yacht harbor, beautiful at night. The salad and filet with port wine sauce were to die for. Walking through the lobby in the morning and seeing the view of the pool area and ocean were breathtaking. The breakfast buffet was good, reasonable and the staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place to all my friends and family.
While this property has condos by the Marina that look great & are close to restaurants & the beach club, we rented a 3&2 house up the hill (Las Collinas) that was perfect as you get access to all the amenities below & can use the golf cart at your leisure. Nice kitchen, great patio with an awesome sunset view & access to a community infinity pool that we never saw anyone else use in Las Collinas. If you’re a family wanting more space - this is great!
This was our second year staying at Costa Baja. Anyone that complains about this resort is crazy. We’ve stayed at many 5* Resorts and Costa Baja is one!! Service is fantastic, location is awesome (although outside of town). Absolutely beautiful! Clean, comfortable, great spa and fantastic food options available at the marina. We will be back again!!
