Car: Recommended

Coral 2 is located in the prestigious Punta Esmeralda resort. The resort is located approximately 20 minutes north of the Puerto Vallarta airport. A short ride to the south is the cityscape of Puerto Vallarta with it's night life, tourist attractions and culture.

Fifteen minutes to the north is a completely different experience. Sayulita is a lovely, quaint Mexican village seemingly lost in time. Cobblestone streets, small stores and surf shops situated around an old time town square. The beach is broad and deep. There is both a left and right hand surf break. A stones throw from the villa is the wonderful little town of Bucerias. It offers an opportunity to shop for authentic mexican handicrafts. There are several high end restaurants and great beach shacks to satisfy your culinary desires.

The new deep water marina in Las Cruz is ten minutes away. The Polo matches in San Francisco are thirty minutes away. They shouldn't be missed.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Michael has spent his life in investment banking. Robin has successfully raised two great sons, Alex and Michael,Jr. In her spare time she manages our investment properties. We were both granted MBA degree's. We have lived in San Francisco and Marin county for the last thirty years.

Why the Owner Chose Bucerias:
After visiting PV for decades we decided that it was time to find something to call a second home. It was love at first sight. We bought it the day that we first saw it.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Peace of mind due to the high level of security The joy of waking up to such a beautiful view The joy of relative seclusion from the madness of crowds Surprised by the number of extremely high quality restaurants within a twenty minute drive
