San Francisco (San Pancho) villa description
Nestled in the midst of the jungle along the Mexican Pacific, yet close to modern civilization is Villa Clavellinas. The property is located within a 20 acre private ecological reserve 4km north of the charming town of San Pancho and 45 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta airport. Built on a point of land over a rocky cliff, Villa Clavellinas enjoys panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and warm sea breezes. A gorgeous two level infinity pool connected by a waterfall sits on the edge of the cliff offering an ideal spot to watch schools of whales and dolphins as well as flocks of pelicans nesting on the local landmark called Pelican Rock. Villa Clavellinas has easy access to a private white sand beach shared with just two other villas. There you can fish, snorkel, kayak and sunbathe.
This exclusive villa of fine rustic Mexican architecture includes a spectacular 65 foot Palapa of hand woven royal palm fronds offering open air living space and multiple sitting and dining areas. Red terracotta clay tile floors throughout the villa are accented by colorful glazed Mexican tiles. The main house has three bedrooms each with private baths featuring open air showers in Mexican tile and terraces with ocean and jungle views. Two charming casitas with private baths, sitting areas and terraces make Villa Clavellinas ideal for larger groups.
Included with the villa is daily maid service (except Sunday) and other on-site services can be arranged, including chef, food shopping and spa treatments. Activities in the area can also be arranged such as boating, fishing, horseback riding, surfing, scuba, jungle adventure, and more.

The Perfect Vacation Getaway
The Perfect Vacation Getaway
Our family had the pleasure of relaxing at this beautiful, ocean-side paradise for one week. Our stay was perfect in every way. From the gorgeous cliffside panoramic views, to the fabulous meals in the open and spacious kitchen and dining area, we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay. While the pictures on VRBO and the villa's website are beautiful, to see the villa and its surroundings in person is truly stunning. The property is well maintained and functions as described in the listing. There was daily maid service and everyone was incredibly friendly and kind to our family. Manuel, the property manager, met us in town, led us out to the villa (a fabulously bumpy and turning ride through the jungle), and ensured everything was working properly. Our family had no problem settling into a routine of lounging by the pools, walking on the beach, playing in the waves, kayaking, reading, surfing the web and eating. Not to mention margaritas and cervezas with chips and guacamole as the sun is setting into the Pacific- Spectacular! We did hire a cook for breakfast and lunch. She was wonderful and prepared excellent meals with fresh squeezed orange juice, banana smoothies, guacamole, salsas and... so much more. Every meal was beautifully prepared and my only complaint was there was too much. She spoke no English but we were able to get by with rudimentary Spanish and an online translator. If we had to do it over, we would probably opt for only one meal; the young adults in our group would vote for lunch so they could sleep in, and forage in the kitchen for the other meal. The kitchen is well equipped and groceries can be purchased in San Pancho or Bucerias. We ate all of our dinners in San Pancho and the choices are outstanding -- especially for such a small town. Our favorites are Maria's, La Ola Rica, Bistro Organico and Mar Platta; each is unique and worth multiple visits. Sayulita is definitely worth a visit; more bustling and lively than sleepy little San Pancho. You will need a car rental to get around the area. My recommendation is Gecko Car Rental. The prices are reasonable, the owners (Adam, Dennis, Laslo) are knowledgeable, and there are no hassles (no time share pitches). I would not rent a vehicle in the Puerto Vallarta area from anyone else. If we are going back to the San Pancho area (it is one of our favorite relaxing destinations) with a large group, we would not hesitate to stay again at the Villa Clavellinas. It was perfect.

This is one of the amazing places. Gorgeous and magical with lovely rooms and the most wonderful places to relax. Isolated in the jungle but only minutes from San Pancho, a charming Mexican Village. Great escape. We are coming back!
