Calling All True Adventurers

Paraiso Escondido is more than just a Guest House, it is a community where upbeat travellers, musicians, bohemians and awakened souls gather

Our Philosophy

Paraiso Escondido is the perfect place for those who seek serenity, fun and adventure.

We have built a place that embeds the values we care for - sharing, recycling, living in harmony with nature, and leaving the smallest footprint possible. It's the embodiment of our philosophy of life. This place reflects the values we care about - sharing, recycling, living in harmony with nature and leaving the smallest footprint possible. We would like our guests to share the same philosophy of life, give enough space to the iguanas and wild life, watch over water running unnecessarily, recycle, limit the use of plastic and care for other guests.

An amazing place to stay

Paraiso Escondido delights travelers with its sense of community, hospitality and location. The Guest House offers 4 beautifully designed casitas (each with two bedrooms) and a self-contained studio. They are all built around the tropical garden and pool area. You'll find plenty of places to take a siesta on a hammock, sun lounge on our big day beds or enjoy a cold beer around the bar.

There is an onsite Yoga Studio which runs several classes a day.

Our Location

Paraiso Escondido

100 metres from the main street, and 30 metres from the beach.

Getting to San Pancho:

A 50 min drive from Puerto Vallarta Airport

Taxis: You can take a taxi to San Franscico directly from Puerta Vallarta Airport. It will cost around $800 pesos.

Bus: If you don't have much luggage, easy option for arrival is the bus to San Franscico. Exit the airport building and take the pedestrian bridge over the main highway. The buses stop right there. Watch for a green “COMPOSTELA” line bus with a sign in the front window saying “San Pancho”. There is about 1 bus every hour; and the passage is about $40 pesos. You'll need to pay in cash in pesos.

Car Rental: The raods are paved, easy to navigate and generally in good condition. This makes rental cars a viable option for travel here. We suggest renting a car so that you have more time to explore the area. As you are a foreigner, you are required to have at least liability insurance which is added on to the price advertised. We'd highly recommend clarifying this before renting a car.

Private Cars / Limos: Paraiso Escondido is happy to arrange a private shuttle in an air conditioned vehicle for about US$ 150 each way (up to 4 people) to accommodate you and your travel itinerary. Please email us to arrange a transfer for you.
