Property description

Our villa is located on the beautiful, sandy, swimming beach of Los Ayala which is approximately 1 km. long, just perfect for a jog or relaxing sunset walk.

The Terraza suite encompasses the entire top floor of the home and is appointed with beautifully furnished with hand carved furniture, original works of art, hand painted dishes and bathroom fixtures (even the toilets!).

It has a fabulous terrace over-looking the ocean, two hammock chairs, a large hand-woven hammock, lounge chairs, BBQ and two dining areas.


A massage therapist is available at our guests' request for a private in-suite massage at a very reasonable rate.

Our special little town of Los Ayala which is located in Riviera Nayarit (or also known as the Mexican Riviera) caters mainly to Mexican tourists but is rapidly being discovered by folks further afield.

There are many palapa style restaurants on the beach, nearby groceries stories and a collective taxi service which will take you to the nearby towns of Rincon de Guayabitos or La Penita. From there, it is easy to catch a bus to Guadalajara, Tepic, Puerto Vallerta or other small towns nearby such as San Francisco or Sayulita which are surfing towns.

On the beach, enjoy purchasing fresh fish, prawns, muffins or other delights including pineapples filled with fresh fruit. One can never go hungry on Los Ayala beach!

There are many things to do here such as fishing, hiking, boating, tennis, kayaking, biking, visiting interesting sights such as the petrogylphs, visits to the various hot springs, the weekly outdoor market or the boat tour through mangrove swamps to view a multitude of wildlife including crocodiles and many varieties of birds in historic San Blas.

We have many return visitors including those who wish to celebrate a special event: a wedding, an anniversary or birthday! If your have such an event, we will make it special for you!

We do have three friendly dogs on our premises and are proud sponsors of Jaltemba Bay Animal Rescue (JBAR). Pet lovers most welcome!

Smoking is allowed on our outside patios.

The home also a two bedroom/2 bathroom suite, and two studio suities available, all with full kitchens, bathrooms, private entrances and terraces. More information is available upon request.

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Jim, a retired safety officer and Lin, a retired college professor ready to welcome you to Casa Contenta!

Why the Owner Chose Los Ayala:
Searching all over Mexico for the 'perfect' location to own a home on a beautiful sandy, swimming beach, with a lush tropical garden, we discovered our dream. Los Ayala is a small fishing/vacation paradise nestled admist lush hills with one kilometer of sandy beach that caters mainly to Mexican tourists. We fell in love! With Puerto Vallarta only an hour away, it is easy for family, friends and guests to reach us, yet well out of the hussle and hype of the larger tourist centres. A perfect place to immerse oneself into Mexican culture and language.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Jim is an active birder, loving to hike and collect new sightings of the many variety of birds in the area. Both of us love the ocean and the waters here are described by my Mexican friends as 'delicious'! Kayaking, snorkelling, fishing, swimming, whale watching are some of the activities we enjoy. A variety of excellent restaurants are nearby and in the tourist season offer a variety of musical venues. We love to dance to live music! There are many opportunities to be involved in a meaningful way through volunteer work with the community. For example, we started Jaltemba Bay Animal Rescue and have so far sterilized over 3500 animals in less than 6 years in a number of free spay and neuter clinics. Free food, medicine, medical support, adoptions and education is offered through donations from the community and friends afar. Volunteering in the schools, community or with my clinics while on vacation can be a very insightful way learn about a new culture! Also, I am an artist. The rich colours, and interesting sights offer many inspirations! Jim and I also love to travel. Los Ayala is within easy distance of a number of small villages such as Sayulita, San Francisco, and El Monteon as well as some of the larger centres such as San Blas, Tepic, Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta. There are petroglyphs, natural hot springs, trips to view flora and fauna, and historic sites all within a days' travel.
