For those wishing to fly into La Paz International Airport and then enjoy a combination of mountain and coastal scenery, the resort is a comfortable drive of 65 miles southeast from La Paz, the capitol of Baja California Sur.
Our region, nestled in the beautiful Bay of Palms, is commonly called the East Cape and was one of the first visited and explored coastal areas in lower Baja. While boasting modern resort accommodations and a wide range of tourist comforts, the East Cape still reflects the quiet, laid-back lifestyle of Old Mexico, lending an easy-going backdrop to the many exciting activities available.

Hotel Buena Vista is at Km 105, and as you get closer (about 10 minutes away) note the Arroyo Bridge and sign on the right for Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park.
