The East Cape’s Finest Resort On the Edge of the Placid Sea
Legend has it, the conquistadors buried barrels of gold and gems in the mountains overlooking “Bahia de las Palmas”. This is how the sleepy Mexican fishing village of Los Barriles (The Barrels) originally received its name.
Today, Hotel Palmas de Cortez is the gem of Baja’s East Cape, spanning the beachfront of the town of Los Barriles. Situated literally just a few steps from the Sea, this first-class resort offers full amenities for anglers and families alike. The magnificent infinity pool and resort-style swim-up bar overlook the East Cape’s largest sportfishing fleet. The hotel wholly operates our boat fleet and all charters can be pre-arranged as part of your vacation package. The jacuzzi pool is a favorite spot to relax, and the inside bar features a full selection of fine wines and liquors, plus ice cold local beers.
The 9-hole “chip-n-putt” golf course and driving range, tennis courts, game room with pool tables, and conference center/meeting facility also are available on the hotel grounds. Experience the Big Game Bar and The Loft, our wine and champagne bar featuring a wide variety of bottle selections and a Humidor stocked with fresh Cuban cigars.
For world-class sportfishing and a resort experience in a lush tropical setting offering all the creature comforts, Hotel Palmas de Cortez is the first choice. Our fishing/resort packages are surprisingly affordable and can be 100% customized to meet your exact needs and group size–from 2 to 200 people.
