5 Reasons To Stay At The Costa Baja Resort In La Paz Mexico
Despite the fact that this is a small, yet very safe city in Mexico, there are lots of La Paz, Mexico hotels. I stayed at the Costa Baja Resort and Spa, a beautiful, secure 4-star beachfront property that has everything you need for an amazing luxury vacation! It’s an exclusive place that only resort guests and property owners can access. Here’s why I loved the place, and why I think you should totally stay at the Costa Baja Resort in La Paz Mexico!
1. The hotel is gorgeous and the service is spectacular
The moment you step onto the grounds of the Costa Baja Resort, it feels like you’re in a beautiful paradise! You’ll be greeted by friendly staff with an ice-cold welcome drink (kid-friendly) and promptly checked into your room. The view of the Sea of Cortez from the lobby of the resort is simply spectacular! The hotel grounds are nicely decorated and groomed, and there are amenities galore here (see below). From the restaurants to housekeeping and the front of the house staff, all were very helpful and attentive to guests’ needs throughout our stay.
2. Amenities are plentiful, they have everything you need
Ahhh where do I begin?! The amenities here make it one of the best places to stay at the Costa Baja Resort and Spa in La Paz Mexico. The rooms are a decent size and are decorated simply and modern. The beds have fresh white linens, the glass shower is gorgeous, Sliding glass doors open up to the patio where you can sit and enjoy a La Paz evening. In the room, you’ll get your standard coffee maker, refrigerator, 42-inch flat-screen TV, a desk, a safe, an extra sitting chair, and wifi in all areas of the resort.
In addition to nice rooms, they’ve got a beach club, day spa, fitness center, golf course, two pools, a swim-up bar, 5 restaurants, tennis courts, free daily shuttle service into town, and the concierge works daily till about 9 pm and is very helpful and knowledgeable about all things La Paz! Headed to the beach? They’ve got towels for all of your adventures, just ask at the front desk.
3. The Costa Baja Resort is right on the beach, and next to the marina
The Costa Baja marina surrounds the resort, so guests have access to the area. Boats can be chartered, and the concierge can set you up with one of the tours and excursions that depart from the area. We took a snorkeling tour with Fun Baja, their office is right here at the Costa Baja marina. We actually swam with the sea lions at Isla Espiritu Santo, it was awesome!
Enjoy the beach, which is just steps away from your room. It is not quite the swimming area, it is very shallow, so I think it’s great for kids to splash around in. There are lots of little fish in the shallow parts of the water, and tons of pretty little shells washed up on the sand. Stroll to the end in front of the beach club to see hermit crabs, sea snails, and other little creatures in the rocky tide pool area!
4. The food is delicious, continental breakfast is included
With 5 restaurants on-site, there are many different foods to choose from throughout the day. Although the Costa Baja Resort is not all-inclusive, the food and drink prices are very affordable. Each person staying at the hotel will get a free continental breakfast at Mosaic restaurant each morning, great for your vacation food budget. The food is really good, and you can actually upgrade to the buffet for a few dollars! Try one of the other restaurants for lunch, and for dinner, I highly recommend Steinbeck’s and Azul Marino for dinner.
5. Close to the La Paz city center, free shuttle rides
The hotel offers a daily shuttle to and from the city center, multiple times per day. Stroll along the marina in Malecon, enjoy the sights, stop into a cafe or a bar for a margarita, and eat some of the best local Mexican food in the city. In the photo above, we sat along the main road at a little taco stand, watching the waves crash and stuffing our faces with fresh guacamole. Take me back!
