Playa de la Paz: New Luxury Development in a Secret Mexican Getaway

Never heard of La Paz? You’re not alone. But this sleepy Baja fishing town is poised to become the next Mexican jet-set destination thanks to the opening of a new luxury real estate development called Playa de la Paz. Just a 90-minute drive north of Cabo on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, the little town of La Paz sits on a small bay in the nook of a peninsula. For that reason, although it is on the eastern side of Baja, it faces west, and the sunsets are spectacular, blossoming from gold to red and purple over the waters of the bay and the mountains.

Playa de la Paz lies just a short distance from the main town on its own private beach, a rarity in Baja. So although the attractions of the town, including a tranquil boardwalk and plenty of restaurants and nightlife are close at hand, the resort itself feels quiet and secluded. There are just 23 deluxe residences here ranging from one to three bedrooms, and priced from just under a million dollars to north of three million for the largest. All combine spacious indoor and outdoor living spaces, and the multilevel units boast al fresco patios and terraces overlooking the sea.
