Los Cabos—the region on Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula that encompasses Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo—is one of Mexico’s most sought-after vacation destinations and home to several luxury resorts and residential communities. Within the seaside region, Maravilla Los Cabos, which opened in 2015, is among one of the most exclusive residential communities in the area.
Maravilla offers turnkey properties along with blank homesites, including El Cielo, a private enclave of oceanfront homesites of various sizes. Among those, El Cielo 2 is the largest and most expensive homesite spanning 2.43 acres of oceanfront land and on the market for $90 million. In fact, it’s the most expensive single piece of real estate on private land in the history of Los Cabos and currently the most expensive in all of Mexico.
The site has 500 feet of ocean frontage overlooking the Sea of Cortez and next to Santa Maria Bay. This rare opportunity will allow future buyers to create a legacy family compound, as there’s 71,005 square feet of vertical construction area for multiple estates, hiking trails and any feature imaginable.
“What really sets it apart is that this homesite is part of a unique, private enclave within Maravilla that is etched into the cliffs of Cabo’s coastline with ultimate privacy and breathtaking views,” says Neil Johnson, managing director of residential real estate at Maravilla Los Cabos. “
Buyers will, of course, have access to Maravilla’s 1,400-acre master-planned development. Within the community is Maravilla, Montage Los Cabos, Twin Dolphin Club, which residents have complete access to. Maravilla is a private community with just 230 members. There are several upscale dining experiences at Twin Dolphin Club, Montage Los Cabos and signature restaurants and bars from a sushi lounge to a beach club with Baja-inspired cuisine. Residents also have access to a state-of-the-art spa and fitness club, wellness programming, and a range of activities from water sports to golfing, campsites, arcade games, paintball, snorkeling, biking, and hiking.
“As the most private part of Maravilla, only El Cielo 1 and 2 owners will be able to access their property via a private tunnel with exclusive security and guardhouse,” Johnson says. “There will also be an owner-exclusive amenity within the El Cielo enclave featuring an open-air bodega and restaurant, tequila and wine storage in a private cave, a park, and even a hidden speakeasy—all overlooking the Sea of Cortez.”
The community has mountains, desert arroyos, Blue Flag-certified swimmable beaches, and wild expanses of untouched land to keep this beautiful region conserved. There are sustainability practices and conservation efforts in place to protect the land. This includes an energy-saving initiative designed by Tesla that allows the community to live off-grid through the use of solar panel installations and battery energy storage systems that powered The Club and its amenities.
Other initiatives include a coral restoration project for the reefs of Santa Maria Bay, which increases biodiversity and safeguards against natural disasters. The development also utilizes reverse osmosis desalination that turns seawater into clean drinking water—without impacting marine life. It’s also a Certified Bronze Audubon International Signature Sanctuary, which is the only golf course in Mexico to achieve this recognition.
