If you are looking for a perfect vacation away from the crowds and cold climates, come to Casa Catalina at the Alamar Resort in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, located 15 kilometers north of the Puerto Vallarta airport on the north shore of Banderas Bay. Alamar’s extensive amenities include the finest private beach complex on the Bay, a private jungle complex with playground and palapa, multiple common area heated pools, two jacuzzis, gym and 24 hour security service. This resort is so new and undiscovered, you are guaranteed of getting your own umbrella beach chair.
Casa Catalina’s open airy design allows spectacular views of Banderas Bay, Puerto Vallarta and the Sierra Madre mountains in the background from each bedroom, kitchen, and living area. Unlike the condos in the main tower, Casa Catalina shares no common walls with other units, allowing windows on all sides and quiet surroundings. Two large bedrooms with king-sized beds, a den/TV room with double-sized futon and two large bathrooms provide accommodations for five to seven guests. The beds include top of the line pillow top Serta mattresses and high quality linens. Queen and twin aerobeds are also available. The contemporary kitchen is fully equipped and includes a brand new refrigerator, stove, coffee maker, microwave and toaster oven. Inside laundry includes new front loading washing and dryer. All windows have custom designed shades. Each bedroom and den has its own air conditioner (mini-split) with remote control and the living area has central air. Two spacious terraces with patio furniture are located off the living area and master bedroom. Casa Catalina’s accommodations are perfect for families or two couples.
Casa Catalina’s location not only provides a spectacular view (yes, you can see whales plying the waters of the Bay), but is also walking distance to many restaurants, clubs and the new Nayarit Marina in La Cruz. La Cruz is a quaint fishing village, located about 15 kilometers north of the Puerto Vallarta airport, which has become a favorite destination of boaters from all over the world. You will find a friendly Huichol Indian art gallery that supports indigenous weaving, a gourmet German restaurant that serves European cuisine and features live flamenco guitar music, an American bar/restaurant with live American music and local charity events, plus a wide variety of local restaurants and streets stands that provide an excellent selection of seafood, salads, tacos, and quesadillas and live entertainment. La Cruz is surrounded by beautiful beaches like Destiladeras, Punta de Mita, Careyeros and La Cruz’s own beach, La Manzanilla. La Manzanilla is located close to Casa Catalina and is widely known by the locals for its calm waters and delicious food at its palapa beach restaurants. The fish market in the La Cruz Marina offers fresh mahi mahi, shrimp, yellowtail, ahi tuna and other seafood delicacies on a daily basis at about half the price found elsewhere. Side trip activities around the Bay are numerous. You can golf, you can surf, you can sail, you can go deep sea fishing, you can snorkel or dive and you can visit Sayulita, Punta de Mita or the many shops in Puerto Vallarta’s malecon.
Very inexpensive transportation is available on buses or vans with a bus stop located at the Alamar development. Our Jeep Grand Cherokee is also available and Casa Catalina has a private underground parking space steps away from the front door. Shopping for those who do their own cooking can be found at the numerous local tiendas and at large grocery stores (Mega and Walmart) located 10 kilometers away. There is a Costco store nearby in Puerto Vallarta as well. Concierge and gourmet services are available.

About the owner: We love sailing and spending time under the sun. Both of us have professional careers in finance. We are always seeking sound financial investments and believe we found one here at Alamar.
Why the Owner Chose La Cruz de Huanacaxtle: We discovered the town of La Cruz during our extended cruise to Mexico aboard our sailboat. The charm of La Cruz and the natural beauty of Banderas Bay captured our hearts. With all the boating activities associated with the La Cruz Marina and surrounding area, we knew we wanted to spend more time here. Our family also fell under La Cruz's spell. We purchased Amura #4 at the Alamar Resort in April 2013 and look forward to eventually making it our retirement villa.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Alamar's extraordinary architecture, exquisite landscaping, heated pools, kids' playgrounds and other top tier amenities make this rental the perfect vacation retreat for both families and multiple couples. La Cruz offers great entertainment venues as well as a diverse selection of restaurants. Puerto Vallarta is only a 30 minute drive from La Cruz.
