Puerta Cortés, Mexico, a resort destination, located near La Paz and positioned as a gateway to the Sea of Cortez, features a boutique collection of oceanfront and hillside residences, a golf course, and a world-class marina. Watersports activities include sailing, yachting, diving, snorkeling and more. The lush, rolling greens of the golf course weaving through the desert landscape, down to the crystal blue Sea of Cortez creates a dramatic backdrop for the marina and spectacular views from the residences of Puerta Cortés.

In 2018, illustrious superyachts such as Seven Seas, Venus, and Atessa IV, among others visited the area.

On site at Puerta Cortés there are two types of residences: Las Colinas and VistaMar. Las Colinas comprises 72 contemporary rustic hillside residences located between holes eight and ten of the Gary Player-designed golf course. VistaMar is a collection of 60 oceanfront condominiums, with panoramic views of the Sea of Cortez and located just a short one- minute golf cart ride from Pueblito Marinero.
El Cortés Golf course, with sweeping views of the Sea of Cortez from 17 of the 18 holes, is home to the only Gary Player Signature golf course in Mexico.
