Playa Las Tortugas (Turtle Beach) villa description

'Villa Las Mañanitas at Playa Las Tortugas is your quiet oasis on miles of palm-lined sea turtle nesting beach north of Puerto Vallarta. It is one of 12 unique residences for rent at Playa las Tortugas.

“The next morning, about 15 miles down the coast, I find my Shangri-La, the place I could recommend without reservation or caveat. I almost miss it as I vacillate about whether to follow a dirt road because of a sign that simply states Playa Las Tortugas.” The Washington Post.

Take a stroll on the pristine sandy beach that goes on as far as the eye can see.

Experience indescribable sunsets and watch a formation of pelicans fly just over the wave tops, or see whales breach and dolphins play practically in your vast front yard.

Paddle by canoe or kayak through the tidal mangrove estuary to see multitudes of tropical birds endemic to this beautiful state.

Have a relaxing and intense massage under the palapa by our talented massage therapist. Take in the aroma of blooming plumeria and just....relax.

Make yourself at home in the gourmet kitchen and prepare fresh fish for dinner purchased from the fisherman on the beach. You might also canoe to Platanitos for sarandeado style barbecued fish, or fresh shrimp cooked over a mesquite grill. Even better, enjoy a traditional meal prepared by our wonderful cook.

Our villa features three large bedrooms. Each bedroom has super quiet air conditioning, DVD and satellite television. The master patio has a magnificent view overlooking the ocean and yard filled with tropical plants. The third bedroom is attached to the house, but with a private entrance and ensuite bathroom with tub and shower. Relax with a wonderful candlelight bubble bath. The surf and stars will lull you to sleep each night.

Our living area is furnished in tropical furniture with eclectic art work from all over the world that enhances the feeling of peace and tranquility at our villa. The dining area is outside on the terrace overlooking the pool and the ocean. The gourmet kitchen features a dishwasher, side by side refrigerator with icemaker and numerous small appliances.

Our pool area features a fountain and casita bar complete with sink and refrigerator, including glassware and dishes for entertaining. View the Pacific Ocean from the infinity edge of the pool while surrounded by palms and lush tropical vegetation. You may want to have a soak in the hot tub while watching the sunset.

Enjoy the magic of our corner of the world. Mi casa es tu casa!

The entire state of Nayarit area enjoys one of the most favorable climates in the world. Average daily year-round temperatures range from highs of 80-85 degrees (perfect beach weather) to lows of 60-70 degrees (perfect sleeping weather). Swim year round, but consider packing a light sweater for the evenings in the winter months. Rain, when it falls, generally occurs between June and September as night-time or pre-dawn thundershowers.

You can visit small typical Mexican villages, enjoy fresh fish and other local seafood at small rustic beachfront restaurants, tour a tropical river and waterfalls, see historic San Blas, and drive up through the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountains to colonial Tepic where crafts of the Huichol Indians are found.

Playa Las Tortugas has kilometers of uncrowded, clean sand beach, and a number of activities both on property and nearby such as Surfing, Wave Kayaking, Boogie Boarding, Fishing, and Shelling, Canoeing, Whale Watching, Bird Watching, Walking or Running on Miles of Sand Beach, and Sea Turtle Conservation activities (during season) at the Sea Turtle Conservation Camp. Frequently there is one festival or another in small towns within an hour of our location. There are a number of excursions you might take, with or without a guide.

Playa Las Tortugas is located on a section of coastline which is nesting habitat of several species of sea turtle in the beautiful state of Nayarit, Mexico 70 miles north of the Puerto Vallarta (PVR) International Airport and about 50 miles west of Tepic, the colonial capital of Nayarit.

We are happy to arrange transportation for you in our private shuttle, you may rent a car and drive your self which a large number of our guests do, or if you'd like to be more adventurous you may decide to come by bus and local taxi. We can send you details on the numerous car rental companies, or instructions on which buses and local taxis to take. It's quite easy to find your way from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport to Playa Las Tortugas, and the roads are normally well-maintained. Your valid driver's license is accepted in Mexico, and the driving rules are virtually the same as most countries. Write us for a copy of detailed driving instructions and a map. Your scenic drive north from the airport takes less than 2 hours and goes through areas of old-growth jungle and coastal hills.

Your vacation place in the sun on miles of tropical beach awaits!'
