Iberostar Paradiso Golf Course

Updated: Jun 6

The aptly named Iberostar Paradiso is undoubtedly one of the best golf courses in the region, consistently ranking among my customers' top three choices. It's no surprise it has hosted prestigious events like the World Amateur Team Championships in 2016 and Big Break Mexico. The course boasts spectacular tropical jungle scenery, immaculate greens, wide fairways, fine sand bunkers, and beautiful lakes.

Its uniquely hilly terrain truly sets it apart from other courses in the region. The Iberostar Paradiso offers a challenging array of holes featuring undulating dips, twists, and scenic doglegs, all nestled within a lush tropical jungle. The experience is further enhanced by the vibrant sounds of colorful parrots and a diverse array of wildlife.

Iberostar Paradiso Golf Course: what the price includes:

Green fees include a golf buggy, as well as food and drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) during and after the round.

A continental breakfast (coffee, fruit juice, yogurts, etc.) is served until 11 AM when the restaurant opens. Food service ends at 4 PM, so keep this in mind for afternoon tee times.

Top features of Iberostar Paradiso Golf Course

While it may lack ocean views, it more than compensates with its stunning jungle setting, which boasts an array of colorful plants and exotic wildlife. With minimal development around the golf course, you get a true sense of being immersed in nature.

Immaculately maintained and featuring generous fairways, this course stands out because it is not situated over mangroves like many others in the region, resulting in fewer lost balls from errant shots.
