The Ultimate Getaway

Luxuriate at Costa Palmas’ resort residences on the East Cape of Baja

In Partnership with COSTA PALMAS


The Marina Village is the backdrop to the many adventures at sea.


The last day of vacation can feel a lot like the “Sunday scaries” powered by jet fuel, but the luxury condominium hotels at COSTA PALMAS, on Baja’s East Cape, can make all those angsty thoughts go away: You can stay, you can extend those relaxing beach vibes, and you can blend all the comforts of home with the best parts of staying at an exclusive resort.

Residences at this 1,500-acre property offer a range of possibilities, coupling the warmth of a club community and the services of a resort with the independence of private residences. The eclectic, casually chic Casa Blake in Marina Village is directly on the water, with easy access to the property’s 300 boat slips for yachts up to 70 meters. The Four Seasons residences offer contemporary architecture, custom floor plans, and golf, ocean, or marina views. The dune-side Amanvari residences, now under construction, will deliver the seclusion, luxury, and bespoke services Aman Resorts are famous for.


A 1,500-acre paradise lives at the edge of the swimmable waters of the Sea of Cortez.


Those home-slash-resort vibes are just the start of the deep appeal of this idyllic spot on the Sea of Cortéz. With its two miles of serene sandy beaches, Costa Palmas still feels raw and undiscovered, but it’s also only 45 minutes from Los Cabos International Airport. The space is surrounded by rugged mountains and affords endless ocean views, but also provides easy access to world-class restaurants and a Martin Brudnizki–designed nightclub. Renowned chef and pizza influencer Nancy Silverton refers to Mozza Baja, at the courtyard in Marina Village, as the offspring of her Hollywood pizzeria and DTLA osteria. The menu honors the restaurant’s Mexican locale as much as its Italian inspiration, spotlighting local seafood and farm-fresh produce, and Mozza Mezcalita and Mozza Negroni appear on the cocktail list.

You can spend some days simply relaxing on the beach or lolling in the calm, swimmable ocean water; other days can be packed with activities, like a round on the Robert Trent Jones II championship course. Making the most of the topography, dunescapes, and desert and ocean views, the links-style course offers 7- and 14-hole loops as well as the traditional 18 holes, so they’re tailored to how much time you have. There are plenty of other “Aventura” to be had at the Costa Palmas Beach & Yacht Club, with its curated experiences (from ATV outings to zip-lining) and go-to activities like hiking, biking, paddleboarding, and kayaking. Every day really can feel like vacation.
