Super cute, comfy, relaxing and out of the way - exactly what I was looking for on my recent trip to Mexico. Really well looked after gardens, relaxing pool looking over the beach and well stocked kitchen. Basic, but simple with some comfortable touches. Well worth the money, I couldn't have asked for anything else. Get yourself a car though...they're... More

I have stayed here twice, as this is a perfect setup for my family and friends. If you want the luxury and sterility of a big hotel/resort chain, look elsewhere - that is not what Palapas is about. It is a great place if you want a private and funky place to stay a short walk (on dirt roads) to... More

I can't image a better place to stay in San Jose del Cabo. The grounds are a lush tropical garden with a pool, hammocks, BBQ, fish smoker, and even a ping pong table. Capitan John was a gracious host and bent over backwards to fulfill my every need. My boat was being repaired in the local yard which was only... More

I had a wonderful stay at the Palapas Resort. The cabina I rented was clean and comfortable; a nice bed, small refrigerator and coffee maker. Perfect accommodations for the traveler who plans to get out early for the fishing nearby. The grounds of the resort were quiet and comfortable - lots of plants, an open kitchen, hammocks to relax in.... More

We arrived at the Palapas Resort on January 7th, and planned on staying a total of 13 days there. Our first impression was very good, this place is a great location, and has HUGE potential!!!, the grounds are very lovely, (minus the dog poop, 5 piles we saw the first day).

I’m very surprised at the extensive array of senseless and irrational thought in this review. This confusion of words and untrue comments are very misleading to say the least. This couple came January 7th and stayed for a week and then returned again the 22nd. Apparently there were no issues until they returned. I just want to say that my... More

We very much enjoyed our 8 day stay at Palapas Resort. It's located within short walking distance to a lovely, almost deserted beach, a few local restaurants and, if you don't rent a car, the local 5 bus stops right on the corner. It's less than a 10 minute drive to down town San Jose Del Cabo, which is beautiful... More

Palapas is the perfect getaway for those looking for a fun Baja vacation the way it was 20 years ago. Welcome to La Playita, one of the last little fishing villages of its kind.

Go fishing from one of the Panga boats to the hottest fishing spots known as Gordo Banks. Our beaches are one of the few unvisited swimming beaches in all of Los Cabos. Palapas is close to all the finest surfing and just a hop & skip to beautiful downtown San Jose Del Cabo. You will have the best of both worlds at your fingertips. Great for the younger or older world traveler, or anyone that just wants to hang and chill and just have fun. We have beautifully lush landscaped grounds with hammocks and large flat grassy areas that would be perfect for yoga retreats such as Bikram, Hatha, or other.
