Welcome To Ski Paradise, your all inclusive Water Ski Vacation.

Since the launch of our first water ski season in 1989, we have been proud hosts to many skiers and non-skiers at Ski Paradise, an all inclusive water ski vacation in beautiful Acapulco, Mexico. Our team of accomplished coaches has created an impeccable, comprehensive environment that offers novice and intermediate skiers first hand experience with the finer points of water skiing. We have helped many national and world champions fine tune their talents and further their training knowledge by offering diverse coaching styles over the years. Proudly, we have created an environment that inspires new skiers to challenge themselves and become more knowledgeable, thus enjoying the sport even more than they ever thought possible.

An All Inclusive Water Ski Resort and Vacation
Serenely nestled within exclusive residential estates overlooking Acapulco Bay, we invite you to reside with us at our luxury villa which seamlessly combines the old-world charm of a Mediterranean estate with the modern luxury of an elegant resort. During your weekly stay, lounge pool side, experience irresistible dining, focus on your well-being with massage and fitness, relax in the sun-drenched climate, enjoy the stunning natural beauty, while surrounded by a wonderland of flora and fauna. Endless options offer something for everyone – the active enthusiast, the spirited adventurer, the culinary connoisseur and the style seeker. The result: A destination unparalleled and lauded by Waterski Magazine as the "World's Best Water Ski Vacation."

Along with the creation of new enthusiastic skiers, we've been able to form lifelong friendships between our guests here at Ski Paradise. We look forward to your visit with us!

Ski Paradise will have a new Villa for this season in Las Brisas, Acapulco, just down the street from where Gordon Rathbun first started living his dream: to offer the world’s best waterski vacation in one of the world’s best sea resorts.

You will enjoy the same Five Star service that we have always provided with our same staff, the same amenities, our well known gourmet cuisine and Gordon & Gabriela as your hosts.

The new Villa Dos Marías is beautiful with an attractive design typical of Las Brisas in Acapulco's heyday. It also has a beautiful tropical garden with a great terrace and an amazing view of Acapulco Bay that Gordon refers to as a "10".

We are looking forward to another chapter in the Ski Paradise Vacation. We hope to see you here next season starting November 9th, 2019!
