Holiday Rental House
For the traveler who wishes to get away from the tourist hubs, wants a break from the traditional motel room, but still enjoys simple, comfortable amenities at a very affordable price, Ramadas Sol y Mar in Spa Buena Vista are hard to beat. The ramadas (yurts) are located 45 miles north of Cabo San Lucas on the beautiful Sea of Cortez with direct access to literally miles of white sandy beach. The nearby town of Los Barriles has all the necessities: a nice variety of restaurants, grocery stores, a bank, ATMs, sport rental companies and plenty of shopping options. But, fishing, windsurfing, hiking, snorkeling, beach walking, mountain biking or just plain relaxing are what life is about in Spa Buena Vista. Each unique thatched-roof yurt is complete with a shower, toilet, sink, mini fridge,...For the traveler who wishes to get away from the tourist hubs, wants a break from the traditional motel room, but still enjoys simple, comfortable amenities at a very affordable price, Ramadas Sol y Mar in Spa Buena Vista are hard to beat.

The nearby town of Los Barriles has all the necessities: a nice variety of restaurants, grocery stores, a bank, ATMs, sport rental companies and plenty of shopping options. But, fishing, windsurfing, hiking, snorkeling, beach walking, mountain biking or just plain relaxing are what life is about in Spa Buena Vista. Each unique thatched-roof yurt is complete with a shower, toilet, sink, mini fridge, coffee maker, two-burner propane stove top, wireless internet, comfortable beds and an outdoor soaking tub. The yurts have great views of the Sea of Cortez and and it is an easy 2 minute stroll to an endless white sand beach. You can even walk the beach into Los Barriles if you are up to a 7 miles round trip hike. The surrounding residential neighborhood is quiet, safe and relaxing. All the water for the community comes from a natural underground hot spring. The water system is turned on at 8 AM and turned off at 6 PM. During the down time water is gravity fed from tower mounted 'tanakas.' If you like salt water fishing, some of the best is right at your doorstep. During the winter, some of the world's finest windsurfing is a kite board away. WHEN TO COME: It's all good, but near perfect weather can best be found March to June, and mid-October to December. July through September has some of the best fishing, but these are the hottest months. You'll want to put ice in your soaking tub to cool off in the evening. Mid-December to March are the windy months, drawing windsurfers and kite boarders to the area. Sunny with highs in the mid 70's and lows of 60. Evenings may require a sweatshirt in these 'winter' months. But, no matter when you come there is something for everyone and the days are almost always bright and sunny. So, check out Ramadas Sol y Mar, soak in your private spa water tub, enjoy a piece of unspoiled paradise, and plan an unforgettable vacation. Unique, simple, comfortable and affordable - an unbeatable combination. NOTE: Even if the calendar says 'unavailable,' send us an inquiry anyway. The calendar feature only tracks one of the four available yurts.More

About the neighbourhood
Halfway between Cabo San Lucas and La Paz on the Sea of Cortez. Spa Buena Vista is an easy 50 minute drive north of the Cabo airport on Highway 1. Spa Buena Vista is a small community build around the lovely Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort and just 3 miles south of Los Barriles. The yurts themselves are only a block and a half from the Sea of Cortez with direct access to miles of sandy beach.
Getting around
You can arrange for a taxi from the Los Cabos airport to Buena Vista. I can provide taxi information of two local companies that have proven reliable. Cost about $75 door to door in newer 8 passenger vans. But you might find a rental car to be more convenient if you plan to explore the area. Most rental car companies have offices at the airport.
