About Hyland Hogan

Hello, My name is Hyland Hogan. My wife Rebecca and I purchased here at 'Paradise of the Sea' because of the warm and friendly atmosphere of the people, area and history of La Paz. We enjoy every minute we spend here and know you will too. Please make this your home away from home, we believe it will inspire you to return. the Hogan's

Hyland Hogan purchased this condo in 2009

Why Hyland Hogan chose La Paz

Growing up, my favorite TV show was Jacques Cousteau. His specials on the Sea of Cortez always stuck with me, and now I'm here to explore for myself. So far I have not been disappointed. When you're on the property, it's like you're on a private island because of built-in rules to preserve the natural beauty. When the resort is completely built out, it will cover less than 25% of the 1700 acres of natural wonder. All visitors are encouraged to use electric vehicles, bicycles or by foot to see and explore all the resort has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

One of the most surprising things to us was how every restaurant we've tried has been exceptional. Fresh seafood and the famous Baja beef is incredible. You can hire a driver or rent a car to explore the many historic mining towns or unspoiled beaches. The sea of Cortes and Baja area offers so many varieties and options of things to choose from its hard to make up your mind, for what to do next.

The view is spectacular, the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The condo has more than ample room. A great place for three couples to stay. Ride from the shuttle service from the condo can be arrange at any time; even 4 am if you give them notice. Maude was extremely helpful and courteous and met us at the ferry landing on the La Paz side when we arrived

. We caught a Dorado and the Survivor restaurant did a fabulous job preparing it. This is a nice relaxing complex, which is what we wanting. Exceeded expectations! Side note…try Onboard Baja on an excursion. They are located right next to the ferry landing on the La Paz side. That staff will bend over backwards to make your stay enjoyable and they will pick you up at the condo ferry landing. Great vacation! Thanks!!

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Hyland's unit for eight nights. It is a gorgeous unit with more than enough space for our family of five. The large kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prepare simple meals. There was ample bedding and towels for both showering and the pool.

We enjoyed walking on the beach, which is one of the nicest in the city, and we appreciated its relative solitude. The kayaks and paddleboards that are available to borrow were great, but you may want to sign them out the night before if you want to be assured a paddle because there is some abuse of the system by the long-term residents.

The shuttle to the ferry was prompt and reliable and the ferry ran like clockwork. Everyone who works at PDM, including Maude, Hyland's property manager, was helpful and responsive.

Thank you to Hyland for the use of his stunning unit.

The condo was extremely spacious with stellar views & was the perfect lay out for our 2 families(one

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the condo & the location. Taking the el trolle into La Paz was fun. We would have liked continuous hot water. The internet Reuter was not as strong as it could be(so sitting in the master bedroom we were not able to connect with the Internet). This may not seem important but I was still trying to stay in touch with work & it was up & down. Our whole experience re Paraiso Del mar could have been more positive if we had a property Mgr who could communicate. We found Sarahi in the business office to be totally terrific!! She gets 5 stars. She got us a golf cart to rent, explained about the water bottles, kayak & paddle bd use age etc etc. it made us feel welcome & isn't that what it's all about?

Excellent place, excellent time!

  • 5 of 5

Paraiso del Mar is a fantastic place to vacation and this is one of its best units. You cannot beat the views, the whale sharks, the weather, the beach, the top-notch on-property restaurant, or the responsive service from the on-site property manager. We had three generations on board for this trip, and everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly. Hogan and Rebecca are quick to respond and lend a hand and advice. Heartily recommend!
