It's as good a place as any to call home. Warm sun, cheap liquor, and beautiful women.

Nuevo Paraíso (English: New Paradise) is one of three major territories featured in Red Dead Redemption and comprises the entire presence of Mexico within the game.

Nuevo Paraíso is the northern part of Mexico, separated from the United States by the San Luis River along the northern border. During this time, Mexico was in the early stages of an armed revolution, led by Abraham Reyes.

Nuevo Paraíso is composed of three smaller regions, Punta Orgullo, Perdido, and Diez Coronas.

It is the second region John Marston travels to during the main storyline and it is unlocked by the mission "We Shall Be Together in Paradise".

The name 'Nuevo Paraíso' may be based on that of the Mexican border state of Nuevo León. Meanwhile, the state itself takes elements from the western border states Chihuahua, Sonora and Baja California.

  • On the eastern side of Nuevo Paraíso, the landscape resembles Monument Valley.
  • Nuevo Paraíso is the only large territory that has no snow, as New Austin has snow in the area just north of MacFarlane's Ranch, while West Elizabeth has snow in Tall Trees.
  • After crossing a bridge between New Austin and Nuevo Paraíso, the game may still recognize the player as being in the territory that was just left (music from that territory will still be playing, bounties will still be obtained). Only after progressing a certain distance will the name of the region appear, and the player will be recognized as being in the new territory. Some players have reported that the game still recognized the player as being in Mexico after crossing Butter Bridge as far as just outside of MacFarlane's Ranch. This may be a developer oversight, or just a bug in the programming. A similar issue happens sometimes when going from New Austin to West Elizabeth.
  • Duelists in Nuevo Paraíso have a different dueling animation than in New Austin and West Elizabeth.
