In April, my wife and 5 year old son, and my best friend, his wife and 3 year old son, stayed at Villa Ventana at Casa La Ventana in Boca de Tomatlan. During our week's stay we were able to play on the beach with our kids, watch them try to catch tad poles in the river, take the for their first kayak rides in the lagoon and have a local a very dependable teenage girl take over and play with the kids when we wanted to relax and have a little adult time. In short, it doesn't get any better than this. We spent a day a the Vallarta Zoo, just a 10 minute drive from our villa, which was an amazing zoo experience kids (or adults) just don't get in the U. S. anymore. We spent another day at the Vallarta Botanical Gardens, where after a tour and lunch, the kids got to play and swim in the river below.
Our accommodations were like "home away from home" and Christina was a helpful and gracious hostess. She even catered dinner for us one evening on the top level of the Casa. The views were great and she pulled out a box of toys that entertained the boys while we enjoyed an after dinner cocktail.
We hope our boys can return many times as they grow up to play with other children in the village and learn that there is more than one way to grow up and experience the world.
Thanks Casa La Ventana!
