Opened October 1976

Location Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort is situated on Baja’s famed East Cape, 45 minutes north of the Los Cabos International Airport and an hour and a half south of La Paz.

Ownership The Valdez Family: Jesus “Chuy” Valdez (father), Imelda Valdez (mother), Esaul Valdez (son and hotel manager), Axel Valdez (son and director of marketing and sales), Felipe Valdez (son).

History Located on Baja’s magnificent Sea of Cortez, between Cabo San Lucas and La Paz (45 minutes north of the Los Cabos International Airport) Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort began as a beachfront hacienda. It was originally built as the vacation retreat by Mexican General Agustín Olachea, two-time governor of Baja California Sur.

In October 1976, Jesus “Chuy” Valdez, a young entrepreneur from La Paz with great dreams, leased this property. At that time, the East Cape was virtually undiscovered. The area’s pristine beauty, world-class sport fishing, safe beaches and pure underground hot springs made it an ideal place for a resort. He named it Spa Buenavista and opened with 13 rooms. Valdez purchased the property in 1981 and began expanding the hotel to include 45 rooms, a fleet of 20 fishing boats, lushly landscaped grounds with pool, swim-up bar and world-class restaurant. In 1992 the resort’s name was changed to Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort.

Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort retains the “Old Mexico” style of hospitality. This four-star resort welcomes you with wide-open arms and makes you feel like one of the family. It’s no wonder that guests return again and again, year after year.

Design Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort is a tropical oasis. Lushly landscaped
with palms, colorful bougainvillea and hibiscus and fragrant plumeria trees, fountains and natural hot springs Jacuzzis, this one-story hotel is laid back and lovely. The pace is mellow. Architecture and furnishings are simple and comfortable. Accommodations 60 garden view, pool front and ocean front rooms with two double or king-size bed, full bath and telephone. Rooms are terraced down the hillside to the beach and the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez. There are umbrellas on the beach and hammocks on the patios of many rooms.

Activities Hotel Buena Vista's fishing fleet is the most experienced on the East Cape, and includes 20 boats, from 23-foot Center Console Super Pangas and 28 single engine cruisers, 29-foot Twin Engines Cruisers to a 31-foot Twin Engines Cruisers. All are fully equipped with safety and fishing equipment and are manned by professional crews (experienced in both conventional and fly-fishing) who know the sea and its denizens.

Guests can also enjoy the pool, and swim, dive and snorkel western North America’s only living coral reef. They can take tours into nearby mountains to hot springs, Indian rock paintings and waterfalls and afterward indulge in a relaxing massage. Bird-watching tours are available, as are ATV, Jet Ski and kayak rentals, along with shuffleboard, ping pong, horseshoes and pool.

El Pescador Bar Before or after dinner, old and new friends gather in the beachfront El Pescador Bar, adjacent to the restaurant to sip cocktails, watch the big-screen TV, check their email or play rousing games of pool and ping-pong. Happy Hour is from 4 to 5 p.m. daily. Mariachis—Mexican strolling musicians—will frequently drop in and play for guests. Open from 12:00 PM to 10:30 PM

Swim-up Palapa Bar The social hub of Buena Vista Beach Resort is the swim-up bar under the giant palapa at the pool. The beautiful fresh-water pool is the perfect place to unwind after a hard day of fishing or touring. It’s also a great place to spend an afternoon under an umbrella reading a book. Beach towels are available daily. Hungry? Order up a plate of Nachos or a hamburger. When the boats come back from fishing and all sorts of people descend on the pool, you can be sure that someone will start up a wild game of water volleyball. Join in. What more could you ask?. Open from 10:00 AM to 6:30 PM


El Navigante Restaurant Meals are served either in the lovely El Navigante Restaurant or outdoors on the oceanfront terrace. Snacks, such as our famous Nachos, can be ordered poolside.

Dinner’s menu is even more extensive. The American plan menu includes a large selection of beef, chicken, seafood and Mexican dishes. Soup and salad come with the meal.

Guests in the mood for lobster, shrimp, surf and turf or a giant seafood combination for two can order a la carte, off the European Plan menu. Picnic lunches are provided on each fishing boat and Saturday nights are celebrated for the Mexican Buffet and Ballet Folklórico Floor Show.
