Baja's Most Significant Mixed-Use Resort Community, "Destino," Introduced

Share Article

Destino, a half a billion dollar development that covers 550 acres, is set to be "the gateway to the Guadalupe Valley wine region."

Over 250 business and community leaders, Mexican officials, prospective home owners, and high-end vacationers from both sides of the border got their first glimpse of what will be one of Baja's most unique resort destinations this weekend. Nestled on 550 acres along a sweeping hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Destino (Spanish for "destiny,"), will include a Mediterranean-inspired village of shops, cafes and fine restaurants, a boutique hotel, a wine-tasting center, a luxury spa, a water sports center, a private ocean-side malecon (walkway) and eventually, 2,500 resort homes.

Edgar Kelly, President of Mar y Cielo Development, the developer of Destino, explained at the event, which featured some of Mexico's finest art, music, food and wine, "We wanted to demonstrate to our partners and community what a spectacular destination Destino will be. The resort will provide both homeowners and visitors an unmatched experience of what Mexico truly offers at the highest level."

Located at Kilometer 88 along the Toll Road, at Salsipuedes Bay, just north of Ensenada, about 90 minutes from San Diego, Destino is bordered on one side by the Pacific Ocean and on the other by a 1,200 foot soaring hillside, offering both inspiring views and protection from future development, In addition to access by car, guests in the future will be able to come to the gated community by boat via a Destino yacht and pier or by helicopter, which can be landed at Destino's landing pad.

The first phase of Destino is projected to be completed in early 2009. California-based engineers, architects, and landscape designers already are all on board along with U.S. title insurance.

"Mar y Cielo Development was committed to selecting organizations that will manage and develop this significant property in a timely, professional and first-rate manner," stated Michael Condon, co-owner of Prudential California Realty Northern Baja Division, That's why Prudential is so proud to represent Destino and why we are excited to spread the word about what will be Baja's first real "destination resort."

Destino's Master Plan, Phase One site plan and residential floor plans have been developed by RMN Design, an award-wining Newport Beach architectural firm. Featuring a creative blend of the best of Mexican and Mediterranean designs, the homes and resort facilities are laid out so as to provide both privacy and easy opportunities for residents to come together to socialize and enjoy the breathless beauty of this Big Sur-like section of the Baja coastline.

Kelly explains, "It was imperative to us that Destino ensured homeowners uncompromised views of this spectacular site and that the precious natural surroundings be preserved and protected. Over 80% of the homes will have panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and care is being taken to sensitively blend the resort's buildings into the hillside. The casitas and other residences range in price from $180,000 to $400,000 and the list of prospective buyers is already quite long.
