La Paz, Mexico
CostaBaja Resort & Spa is the first luxury hotel and spa in La Paz, capital of Baja California Sur. Fronting the Bay of La Paz where the wild desert meets the turquoise Sea of Cortez, this boutique hotel offers a choice of rooms with ocean, mountain and marina views.

The en suite bathroom includes a glass-enclosed shower, and rooms have Wi-Fi, iPod docking stations and TVs with U.S. channels. Swim in the palm-fringed free-form outdoor pool or rooftop lap pool, and enjoy access to the ocean at the Beach Club, which also has a seaside infinity pool. Kayaks are also available for paddling the protected bay. Dining choices within the resort include casual and more elegant options, both indoors and open-air, and there's a swim-up bar with snacks at the pool.
