A bunch of resorts were not reviewed simply because we couldn’t find their english language version websites, this includes two links courses, Tres Vidas Acapulco in Acapulco and Paraiso del Mar Golf & Country Club in La Paz. Heads up for anyone marketing golf resorts, make sure you have an English language version available!
A note on terminology, Golfo de California, or indeed any other golfo’s you might see on the map refer to the Gulf of California (or other), nothing to do with golf!
