We loved staying right on the beach in this lovely, roomy, clean, and beautifully decorated home on the beach. It was more than we usually spend, but we're glad we did. Kate could not have been more welcoming or accomodating. Her pure joy regarding her life in Mexico enlivened our stay.
The people who we met in the town...Mexicans, Canadians, Dutch, from the US...all were open to connections. The townspeople were patient with our butchered Spanish, even though many could speak English better than we could speak Spanish. The beach is narrow, but good for a long walk. Ocean swimming was wonderful, as was ocean kayaking in calm morning waters. Having a kitchen meant we could eat out once a day, and yet have wonderful fresh Mexican food, including blended fruit drinks thanks to Kate's blender.
It was a long bus ride from Puerto Vallarta, but half as expensive to fly there than to close-by Manzanillo. Enjoy! But save room for us to return!
