Playa Del Paraiso is a newer constructed high-rise near down town San Felipe, next to the Marina. Watch the boats come in by day and the city lights by night. The operational light house can be seen from both bedrooms and the living room. The property is guard gated, there is a pool, spa, clubhouse, weight room and friendly neighbors. Building 1 is complete and fully functional, where our unit is. Building 2 is under construction, noise is very minimal. There is free parking on the premises, under the watchful eye of the guards.
Something is always going on down on the Melachon, always a good place to start. There are ATV rentals available for about $25.00/hr, Dune Buggy rentals for about $35.00/hr. On the Malachon, you can catch the banana boat for a spin on the water ($7.00 per person), or a fishing boat if you so desire. Half day fishing is approximately $45 per person with full day fishing in Puertecitos for $125 per day, per person. Occasionally someone will come out on the beach with horses you can ride along the beach, always a lot of fun. The pineapple and coconut drink trucks typically come in the afternoon.
If you travel south, you can visit the Giant Cactus (approximately $10.00 per car). If you do go, make sure you have 4 wheel drive .
There are hot springs in Puertecitos if you drive south from Playa Del Paraiso, go left at the airport road and continue along the two (2) lane highway for about 50-60 minutes, watching your speed due to dips in the road. Keep going until you come to the split in the road, (about 50 miles from the condo) you can’t miss it. Go left at the split in the road, turn left at the first gate pass the Pemex station, drive up to the first house on the right & stop. A nice man or woman will come out to collect $15.00 US or pesos. Follow the signs to the “hot springs”. You will pass picnic tables along the way, keep going the signs will lead you to the parking area. Come about 1-2 hours after high tide. The pools are natural; there is a slight smell of sulfur.
San Felipe is a fun, relaxing place to visit!!! We would love to have you stay with us!
