Testimonial:

“We spent 8 days at the Palapas Resort over the New Years holiday. The village of La Playita is quaint and quiet with a couple decent restaurants and tiendas. The house is a short walk to the beach and marina and a cheap cab ride to San Jose del Cabo where you will find a good variety of restaurants. The house was perfect for the 5 couples that stayed here. Everyone had their own privacy and the kitchens were large enough to make and share meals together. The view from the infinity pool at sunset is breathtaking. We didn’t do any fishing, but you could easily pick up a boat within walking distance from the house. Definitely going to go back.”

Guestbook comments from the owner

A large group of us (4 families) spent spring break at Palapas this year. We rented the whole compund and found the varied accommodations well suited to provide both privacy and communal space. The location in the small fishing village of La Playita gets you away from the tourist scene and lets you truely relax. With the exception of the occasional over friendly dog on the beach we felt safe and secure the entire time we were there. John is a welcoming and relaxed host. Both kids and adults had a great time at Palapas and wouldn't hesitate to spend another spring break there in the future. Palapas is a real gem!

More Beautiful and incredible

This is the second time I’ve vacationed at ‘Palapas’. John has done an amazing job with Palapas. He is always creating an even more magical place to stay. I have such a great time when I’m there. It’s so easy to go to town because the bus stops in front of Palapas. The beach is only a 5-minute walk away and I love the restaurants that are so close. I also love cooking at Palapas. There are three kitchens in the compound and beautiful coconut trees and palms with flowers growing everywhere. There is even a ping-pong table that is lighted at night. The place is just beautiful and the accommodations are very nice. John has made improvements to the bathrooms and has also made Casa Mango the option of two separate rentals if you just want to rent just the upper or lowers floors with beautiful ocean views! He keeps the grounds very nice and has his helper Mario come in every day to make sure everything is just right. I love ‘Palapas’ and the area where it’s located. It’s just perfect for my friends and me :)

Palapas is the Best!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Palapas in early May and had a wonderful time. The host, John was very nice and accommodating. Palapas has beautiful landscaping and Palm trees, flowers and mature plants and trees. I walked to the beach and swimming areas and to restaurants that are only two blocks from Palapas. Palapas has a great infinity pool with an awesome ocean view. I just loved it. John has the place lite up at night and it looks very pretty.
It was also fun taking the bus to downtown San Jose which is only a few minutes away. I really liked the downtown a lot and the beaches are really great.
I will definitely be back to Palapas !

Great place to stay, priced right

  • 4 of 5
Palapas resort is in the quaint fishing village of La playa in Puerto Los Cabos. Named a Bohemian Resort by the owner, John, Palapas is just that: a perfect place to set free the Bohemian in all of us. Travelers , artists, sport fishing enthusiast, surfers , beach combers, families or those who just want to strip away the corset of their 21st century life for a few weeks and relax without worrying if you tipped someone enough or if wearing flip flops’ in the lobby is no no. My husband and I enjoyed a relaxing yet adventurous week at the Resort. We stayed in the Juan Pesco Pad that was nicely appointed , with plenty of room for two couples. The accommodation was better than advertised The resort would be a perfect place for a small destination wedding party or family gathering as the property achieves both privacy and relaxed open community spaces such as the pool , outdoor kitchen and gardens. Town and the harbor are close. The owner was easy to work with and very attentive. Getting to the resort from the San Jose del Cabo, Baja California Sur, Mexcio (SJD) airport by Taxi was easy and inexpensive. We will defiantly return…and the price is right!
