LODGING GUIDE - Hacienda del Sol

A Nature Lover's Paradise
Just three miles across the water from La Paz is a unique and wonderful resort called Hacienda del Sol, a vacation rental and last remaining RV park in the La Paz area.

Hacienda del Sol sits in a tropical setting with many very old giant cacti, palm trees and flowers, with fully furnished, very quiet vacation rentals only 100 yards from the beach of the inner bay. Hacienda del Sol has a couple of long, quiet beaches, separated by a Mangrove forest.

The Mangrove forest is a real treasure for bird lovers. An ornithologist once counted more than 300 different species. It is just as wonderful taking their kayaks, and paddling into the tide channels and watching all the birds.

Of course, you don't have to go to the beach to splash in the water. Hacienda del Sol has a solar-heated pool with ionized water, so no more chemicals or Chlorine. In addition, they have a shady palapa where you can put the fish or T-bone on the BBQ.

The Quiet Palapa is a cozy, palm thatched place for two with a full kitchen for only $250 plus tax per week. The 1,500-square foot Casa Coromuel is perfect for the entire family and is only $490 per week. The cozy Cabanas is the perfect place for two for only $290 a week. It is only a few steps to the swimming pool and the palapa, and only a 100 yards to the beach to collect clams to cook in the fully equipped kitchen. The 1,100-square foot Casa Sonrisa is a one-bedroom spacious bungalow with plenty of windows, a fully equipped kitchen and two beds for only $390 a week. Or for the private honeymoon getaway, there is Flor De Jamaica with a king bed, full kitchen, jacuzzi and total privacy for just $390.
