Why Betsy Barrymore Stoll chose Cabo Pulmo
Cabo pulmo is one of baja’s best kept beach vacation secrets. And BAJA PARADISE's EL NIDO, VILLA DEL MAR and CASA DEL MAR are the “pearl in the oyster” of the gem known as Cabo Pulmo. Now that you’ve found us, we hope you’ll join us for the best beach vacation you’ve ever had and experience a wonderful holiday “off the beaten track” that we know you won’t soon forget. Our motto is, “if we don’t provide it, then you don’t really need it!” we have been baja converts since the late-60’s. EL NIDO, VILLA DEL MAR and CASA DEL MAR are the culmination of our many years of visiting Baja, first by car camping and tenting, then by truck camper and small rv, camping by private aircraft and sleeping under the wing of the airplane, then to the old-style palapa beach “house” that used to be the way it was in cabo pulmo, and finally to a large fifth-wheel rv after our palapa house burned down in 1991. Building VILLA DEL MAR and CASA DEL MAR in 1994 and 1995 and EL NIDO in 2000 are the realization of our years-long dream of having real homes at the beach in Baja California Sur, Mexico. To off-set the expense of building and outfitting our little piece of paradise, we decided to offer EL NIDO, VILLA DEL MAR and CASA DEL MAR for luxury guest vacation rentals. Betsy, who is a retired whitewater river outfitter, used her years of taking guests into the wilderness to equip our homes with all the best toys. We have tried to think of every amenity we and our guests might want and have provided them all. While the houses are built from local materials, most everything else has been purchased in the usa, imported to Mexico and shipped or carted down the Baja peninsula. In addition to the large items that were shipped by commercial truck, we have made dozens of 4,000 mile round-trip driving trips with a loaded trailer from Idaho and southern California to outfit villa & casa del mar, and el nido.BAJA PARADISE's villas EL NIDO, VILLA DEL MAR & CASA DEL are wonderful & fully turn-key homes.

Lovely house a stone's throw from the beach
We loved our stay at El Nido, just steps from the beach. It has everything that you need to make meals in the kitchen, just bring all your groceries. The queen bed downstairs was comfortable and there were more twin beds upstairs for other guests if needed. We loved sitting out on the deck with our coffee in the a.m and evenings. This is a wonderful place to totally unwind and be away from any media. It is impressive how the village relies totally on solar power. We got to snorkel a couple of days when the weather was right and saw amazing fish. The compound has lots of fun water toys like kayaks, paddle boards, and snorkel gear to use. We enjoyed the five or six restaurants that were right there too.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of EL NIDO @ BAJA PARADISE, Cabo Pulmo, Mexico. It is important to us to provide our guests with excellent lodging and all the beach and ocean equipment for a great stay. We appreciate you choosing one of our three BAJA PARADISE beach villas for your beach holiday!
Great get away
Very clean and comfortable two bedroom two bath home about 100’ from the water. We are divers so the convenience of having our rental where they launch the boat was great. The road in is passable but I wouldn’t drive it faster than 25mph. There were some locals working on th rod on the way out.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay in EL NIDO @ BJA PARADISE. We're pleased that you enjoyed our home and your visit to Cabo Pulmo. FYI - The road referred to by our guest, is the last 6-miles of the well-traveled dirt road from the end of the highway pavement into Cabo Pulmo. The road receives regular maintenance; in between times washboard bumps develop. Locals drive very fast over them; first time drivers tend to take it a lot slower as our guest did. Thanks again for choosing BAJA PARADISE for your beach holiday.
