La Cruz de Huanacaxtle villa description

Casa de Paz y Bien is definitely one of the most exceptional oceanfront properties on the Bay of Banderas. It is a refreshingly interesting creation of architect Victor Javier Guerrero introducing a vision of luxurious Balinese-Mexican oceanfront living to the Nayarit Riviera. It is an extraordinary residence uniquely designed to capture the relaxed spirit of the tropics, the calming and refreshing sea breezes, and the sophisticated eye for refined elegance. This dramatic, intimate, spacious and airy oceanfront retreat is characterized by open and flowing floor plans offering indoor and outdoor living space over stunning ocean vistas. Located between the quaint Mexican villages of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle and Bucerias (approximately 20 minutes North of Puerto Vallarta and 20 minutes South of Punta de Mita), it overlooks the Bay of Banderas, Puerto Vallarta and the Sierra Madres.

Beaches : Clean sand! Beaches surround the Puerto Vallarta/Bucerias/ La Cruz area - many adjacent to local restaurants for a snack or tropical drink. One of the most popular beaches, Distilladeras, located 3 miles past La Cruz on the road to Punta de Mita, is very private and has a palapa restaurant for food and drink. Punta de Mita, located at the western tip of the northern shore, is very popular with tourists because of the multitude of palapa restaurants located on the sand. Punta de Mita has a variety of activities which include kayaking, boogie boarding, snorkeling and tours to the Marrieta Islands just a mile off shore with excellent snorkeling.Sayulita is a small fishing village located 20 minutes north of Bucerias, is very popular for surfing, and also has an excellent selection of restaurants.

Activities!: Puerto Vallarta is synonymous with fun!
Visitors can choose from an abundance of activities, from excursions to quiet secluded beaches, floating parties, scuba diving expeditions and romantic dinner cruises to hiking, biking, eco-tours, swimming with dolphins, whale watching, archaeological digs and 4-wheeling.How about parachute rides over the protected waters of Banderas Bay or a short plane ride to a mountain village for lunch? There are also several getaway locations close enough for an overnight stay – some dedicated to relaxation with spas and other health-oriented amenities.
Puerto Vallarta is also known as an artists' mecca with its world-class galleries and organized evening art walks. There is always something exciting happening in this lovely tropical city.

                          Puerto Vallarta is a colorful seafront town surrounded by a dense tropical forest and majestic mountains. It

                          is well known for its intense night life, excellent restaurants and luxurious golf courses. Located on the Gold

                          Coast of Mexico, it is nestled in the heart of Banderas Bay-the largest in Mexico. The Bay is known for its

                          annual attraction of whales to have their calves during the winter months and for its excellent boating and

                          fishing experiences.

                          La Cruz de Huanacaxtle is a small fishing village twenty minutes north of Puerto Vallarta's International Airport on the Bahai de Banderas. It is located between Puerto Vallarta and Punta de Mita on the North side of the Bay. In 1997 Bahai de Banderas was named one of the 27 most beautiful bays in the world. The well-deserved designation took into account its history and culture, natural sites, flora and fauna and bio-diversity, among others.
