Located on the edge of the sparkling blue Sea of Cortez, 35 miles north of Los Cabos and 70 miles southeast of La Paz, Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort is one of the world’s premier sport fishing destinations. The Sea of Cortez is the Earth’s richest ocean and you can expect to catch blue, black and striped marlin, enormous wahoo, tuna, yellowtail, sailfish, roosterfish and dorado. However, we are much more than just a fisherman’s paradise.

Here you can also enjoy scuba diving and snorkeling, eco- and adventure tours, tours to nearby cities and resorts, golf tours, and such activities as swimming, tennis, horseback riding, kayaking, jet ski and ATV riding, and hiking.


Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort is in its 30th year of operation. Owned and managed by the Valdez family, our resort greets everyone with wide-open arms, even wider smiles and treats you like one of the family.


Our sport fishing and Mexican hospitality are legendary, along with our laid-back atmosphere, moderate prices, superb service and cuisine and the wide variety of activities we offer you.

Guests don’t just come here once. They return again and again, year after year. The swim-up bar is the site of many a reunion, as people run into friends from previous trips.

Once you arrive, you will be met at the airport by one of our three Tres Hermanos vans—large enough to accommodate a party of six and all your luggage. Just let us know what your needs are when you make your reservations and we’ll take care of them!

After you check in, head down the path toward the beach, through a jungle of coconut palms, tangles of magenta bougainvillea and yellow hibiscus.

The air will be soft and warm. The light will ripple and dance across the surface of the water. You’ll see orange lichen creeping across the roofs of our 60 Mediterranean bungalows, hear the tinkling of fountains and inhale the delicate aroma of plumeria blossoms.

You’ll never for a moment doubt that you’re in the tropics here! Ours is no high-rise hotel. Every one of our roomy, one-story bungalows has a private patio, phone and coffee service. Many have hammocks too.

Unpack, put on your swimsuit and dive into the pool. Grab a seat at the swim-up bar under the giant palapa. Order a cold drink, some of our famous Nachos and prepare to make plenty of new friends.

Our fishing fleet is the most experienced on the East Cape, and includes boats, from 23-foot Super Pangas to 29-foot and 32-foot Cruisers. All are fully equipped with safety and fishing equipment and are manned by professional crews—experienced in both conventional and fly-fishing.

While Hotel Buena Vista supports the catch and release program, there is also a complete service to clean, freeze, and package your catch for the trip home. As a special taste treat, Hotel Buena Vista's celebrated chef, Oscar Padilla will prepare your catch of the day to your specifications, for your party's dining pleasure that same evening.

You will find the food here superb and plentiful. Our American Plan offers something for everyone—including both Mexican and American specialties. Our theme nights add make dinner an extra-special event. Nowhere else on the East Cape will you have the opportunity to see and participate in authentic Mexican ballet folklórico.
