1/2 block to beach; small town Mexico; pool (Casa de Sonrisas 1B/1B)

Rental Home -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
La Penita de Jaltemba, Pacific Coast
Welcome to Casa Pacífico in beautiful Nayarit, Mexico. This unit (Casa de Sonrisas) is one of two on the property.

Tired of the 'walk to everything' descriptions? I could walk across the country if I really wanted to. This property is truly a walk-to-the-beach home. Stand in the street in front of the house, turn to your right, and the Pacific Ocean beckons you -- 100 steps away. In addition, there are several cafes in the neighborhood as well as small markets. 6 blocks will take you to the center of La Penita where you will find shops, markets, banks, restaurants and bars - just about anything you need. Kayak and other beach equipment rentals right down the street.

The home itself is a one bedroom with a queen bed, one bathroom unit with a great private terrace. Sit outside in the morning for coffee, or in the evening t...

We loved the neighbourhood, the easy walk into town, to the weekly artisans’ market, to our favourite restaurants, and when properly timed, relaxing in beach chairs (provided by the landlord) to take in the amazing sunsets. A well equipped kitchen, including large fridge and stove,...More

About the neighborhood
The beach is 100 steps away. The main street in town is a 5-10 minute walk depending on whether you like to wander through the neighborhood or stroll along the beach. Many activities await you: beach time, hiking, turtle camps, ruins, volcanoes, petroglyphs, hot springs, jungle and mangroves, Huichol villages, local markets and artisans, snorkeling and other water sports - so much to see and do! You will be staying in a lovely neighborhood with local businesses and families.
Getting around
Walking within La Peñita is easy. I am 5 blocks to el centro through town or a quick 5 minute walk along the beach. There you can find anything you will need during your stay - banks, shops, groceries, restaurants, bars. If you want to visit a nearby town, attraction or beach, taxis are plentiful and inexpensive. Many of my guests stay for several months and walk or take taxis. Others want to venture farther afield so they rent a car, or schedule an outing with many of the available tour guides. The choice is yours, depending on your plans.
Car not needed
