The Hotel Paraiso del Oso stands tall
in the field of Copper Canyon hospitality. Services at the Oso
are distinguished by true caring found only where the owners
take an active part in the day to day operation. Guests arrive
as strangers and leave feeling like family.
Hospitality begins with a
traditional hacienda design which insures privacy and comfort.
The lobby features an eclectic collection of Tarahumara Indian
relics, ranching and cowboy relics, and personal heirlooms that
we share with our guests. Many of the items on display no longer
exist elsewhere, not even in museums.
The outdoor patio is a wonderful place
to sit, relax and enjoy spectacular views. Did we forget to
mention our unique outdoor eating and party area where warm
weather sees us preparing traditional Northern Mexican meals unique to our Hotel.
Check our our hotel photo tour,
as you can see our rooms are clean, bright, cool, in summer, and warm in winter.
Sure we have a fully-stocked bar and the best food of any Hotel
in the region. But there is a difference. In the bar and at
meals, you generally sit with one or both owners and when you
leave the Oso, you feel like part of our family.
Twenty-one rooms make the Oso one of the smaller tourist-class
hotels in the region. It is also one of the friendliest hotels
where the staff strives not only to please you, but to share
culture, language and experience. The Oso specializes in smaller
special-interest groups and in individual travelers with a zest
for life and a desire to learn. The courtyard is a good place to
watch hummingbirds, spend a little time in the sun, or catch up
on some overdue time in a hammock. We offer a relaxing
countryside setting free from the distractions that disrupt
modern life. There are no radios, television, or telephones.
However, for those who have the need to communicate, we are the
only hotel with wireless Internet access, but only in the
hotel's lobby and bar—no fair sneaking off to your room to try
As with all hotels, we offer international fare but we go beyond
that with home-made apple pies, Indian tacos, Mexican and border
plates (but not too spicy!). Grandma's recipe for sticky buns is
a hit at most breakfasts and breakfasts are prepared to your
order. Special diets are no problem for us, just let you know
your needs ahead of time, and vegetarians, don't worry, we keep
textured vegetable protein on hand and offer safe salads .

The Oso is distinguished by a strong
sense of community service. We've worked on medical missions,
started and manage a large scholarship program, work so closely
with our Tarahumara neighbors that we have served as
fiesteros at remote ranchitos where. outsiders were
neither invited nor wanted. We're proud of our community involvement.
