The Paraiso del Mar Resort Development sits on the El Mogote peninsula just across the bay from the Malecon (waterfront boardwalk) in La Paz. The development was the vision of John Fair and Luis Cano, who have developed resorts such as The Esperanza and The Grace Bay Club. Paraiso del Mar Development consists of nearly 900 acres, while over 800 acres have been set aside for wildlife sanctuaries, mangrove preserves, and a biological corridor. This first-class development is centered around La Paz’s first golf course–designed by Arthur Hills and already becoming known as one of the best in the Baja. The course was voted one of the Top New International Courses in 2009 by Golf Digest. The Master Plan consists of 7 resort neighborhoods, a beach club, clubhouse with fitness center and restaurant, shopping plaza, and many pools in addition to the world-class 18 hole golf course. Currently, there are 90 Casas (homes) and 5 condo buildings completed with many more on the way.

Paraiso del Mar now has a new developer! It’s been over 5 years since the original developers walked away and we are extremely excited about the direction our Resort will now be going with Ron Hatfield taking over. We are very pleased to add a professional of Ron’s caliber to lead Paraiso Del Mar’s future development. He is one of Cabo’s original visionaries and has been developing there for more than 25 years. Ron is one of the two originals at Palmilla in San Jose del Cabo and is currently the President of Del Mar Development located at Palmilla. Palmilla is one of the premier resorts in the Los Cabos area. Luis Cano joins Ron in the developer group. Luis and Ron have worked together in Cabo and Palmilla for over 25 years with Luis acting as Ron’s designer and builder at Villa Del Mar, Espirtu, and Hacienda. We are truly Survivors!
