Las Gaviotas Resort

La Paz, Mexico

Welcome to Las Gaviotas Resort in Beautiful Baja Mexico!

Our Warm & Welcoming Resort is located just one block above the La Paz waterfront in the charming neighborhood of Esterito. Every one of our 16 two-bedroom, two bath apartments is fully-furnished, has a complete kitchen and features a wide terrace with a lovely ocean view.

Your private terrace includes a patio table with chairs and a lounger, perfect for enjoying morning coffee. Sunset lovers will appreciate their view of the Bay of La Paz which is known for its stunning, ever-changing cloud & color formations. You can see pictures of our gorgeous views, taken directly from our property, in the Gallery.

Our Location

The central location of Las Gaviotas makes it perfect for a couple, a family or a group of friends. The central plaza, farmers market, grocery stores, restaurants and nightlife are all within easy walking distance.

And just 1 block away, at nearly 7 km in length, is our famous beachfront sidewalk known as El Malecon. Strolling the malecon is a pleasure (and very safe) and those young, or young at heart, can walk, jog, bicycle or roller skate from early morning until late into the evening.


Families with children will love exploring the beach at low tide. Within 5 minutes of leaving your suite you can be on the waterfront searching tidepools for starfish, beautiful shells, pieces of coral and so much more. Watching shorebirds pick and peck their way to a full stomach while the pelicans dive for their lunch is always a treat to see! We recommend you bring water shoes or sandals to use while poking about the shoreline.

While beautiful beaches such as Playa Balandra or Tecolote are a short drive or bus ride down the road, La Paz itself has several pocket beaches right along the malecon, complete with palapas for you to enjoy.

These public beach areas are a wonderful place to relax with a fresh cup of locally roasted coffee after a morning walk. Or, on a sunny afternoon, pick up a cold beverage and a snack “para llevar” (to go) and claim your spot under a palapa. Las Gaviotas Resort has beach towels and coolers available for your use free of charge.

Palapas and Whale Shark Tour Boats are waiting for you at the Muelle Fiscal along the malecon in La Paz

Local Transportation

A car isn’t necessary if you would rather not drive while visiting La Paz. Taxis are readily available all along the malecon or we can make arrangements for one to pick you up right at the hotel.

Buses and collectivos are numerous and travel everywhere in La Paz, as well as to communities located outside of town such as El Centenario, La Ventana, Los Barilles and Todos Santos. In addition, the bus station is also close by, enabling access to our white sandy beaches, located just a short distance out of town.

Our Property

Each of our 16 suites is completely furnished and can sleep up to 6 people. Each has a wide terrace with an ocean view. The front bedroom has its own bath and a king sized bed and opens with a sliding glass door onto the terrace. The second bedroom has a queen sized bed. There is a futon in the living area which also opens onto the front terrace with a sliding glass door.

The kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator, an electric range, a microwave, a toaster, a blender, dishes, silverware, pots and pans, etc., so you’ll have everything needed for cooking. Purified water is provided for drinking and cooking at no extra charge. Guests may shop for groceries from the nearby market a short walk away and prepare their own meals if they wish.

Las Gaviotas Resort is the only hotel in La Paz that has a heated pool. It is large enough to swim laps in. You can soak up the sun on our patio in the winter, protected from the cool breezes. Two barbecues are also available poolside for guest use. Pool hours are from 7am to 10pm.

Staff is available at the front desk 24 hours a day and we also offer daily maid service.
