  • Relaxing and Comfortable

    "This was our 2nd stay in an apartment in La Joya in Akumal. We really appreciate all the comfort and quiet of this condo. The pool, the beach, good restaurants nearby and especially Yal ku lagoon next to it. After a month of traveling in Mexico, we always end our stay by a few days in Akumal and apartments at La Joya are very nice with appreciable services (daily housekeeping) , wifi, tourist information, bicycle rental, etc."

  • Beautiful & Tranquil

    "My husband and I wanted somewhere tropical, beautiful and private to celebrate our 25th anniversary; we could not have found a more ideal spot. After scouring the internet for a new romantic destination, we found Riveria Nayarit and Sayulita. VRBO helped us find Casa Carrictos. First thing - the pictures don't lie. The estate is absoulutely beautiful. Adele and Michael have created a magical place thaf allowed my husband and I a much neeeded place to reconnect and celebrate our special day. The palapa is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The kitchen has evertything you need to create wonderful meals. The blender got work out every day! We had a personal chef from Sabor Con Magia come in on our anniversary. He created a fantastic meal at sunset. Casa Carrictos provided the perfect setting. The beaches nearby are beautiful and Sayulita was fun. Everyone we met was so friendly. After having a very stressfull year at work, Casa Carricitos provided us a beautiful place for us to relax and enjoy each other - where the only distraction was the beauty surrounding you. We loved the infinity pool thag overlooked the Pacific. Evenings in the palapa watching the beautiful sunsets. Playing cards, dominos, swimming in the moonlight - spending much needed time together. The house is not far from the beaches ( easy drive or short hike). Due to it being the rainy season - we rented a jeep to get around and explore. I would highly recommend - it allow you to explore the area. We used Gecko car rental - highly recommemd. We loved Captain Pablos on the beach - great place to have a beer and enjoy the surfers. The food was execellent too. Ally Cat sailing provided a fun and exciting day on the water - when we come back we will be enjoying that snorkeling and sailing adventure again. The crew was so much fun, the drinks plentiful and the food very, very good. It was the best catamaran sail we have ever been on. My husband said it was the funnest day on the water he has ever had - high praise for a man that owns his own boat. Most of all, we loved the house. It is hard to find the words to describe how beautiful and peacefull it was. Sitting by candlelight, listening to the waves hit the beach below. Waking up to those same sounds. Open air bathrooms - witn incredible views and butterflies flying in an out - what more romantic place can anyone ever look for? Thank you Adele and Michael for sharing your slice of heaven witn us! We will be back."

  • Heaven on Earth

    "This is the 4th time my family has stayed at this gorgeous home. My wife, myself and my 4 kids love all of the amenities and luxury found in this condo as well as the entire gated community of Punta Mita. Everything you would ever need or want is included – the best Concierge, a fully stocked kitchen, wonderful art and furnishings plus wireless internet and TV from the States. We had a Chef one night and it was great and quite reasonably priced. You can sit on the terrace and watch your kids in the pool below or surf the beginner/intermediate waves in front of the house. Or you can watch the yachts anchored just outside the surfbreak and whales breaching just beyond. It is so wonderful to fall asleep and wake up to the gentle sounds of the waves. This is truly a little bit of heaven on earth. Don’t hesitate to stay here. It is the best condo in the entire complex – at least the few that I have seen in person. It’s such a bummer when you have to leave."

  • Wow, what a gorgeous place and peaceful experience!!!

    "My husband and I spent 4 relaxing days here celebrating our Anniversary in October. Casa Encanto is a very private seaside home directly on the beach on Playa Encanto. We found shells and sand dollars on the beach when the tide was really low because there are tide pools. The solar powered home was comfortable and there were plenty of linens provided. We slept with the screened french doors open onto the beach while listening to the sounds of the tide coming in. We saw dolphins swimming by right in front of the house and not far from shore. We got incredible pictures of nature at its best. The home is located in a safe neighborhood with security. The ambiance is rustic and gives you a sense of enjoyment from living away from the distractions of everyday life. We didn't miss our cell phones, TV or email after the first day. It was so romantic with just stars lighting up the sky every evening! Sunsets were incredible. Great bonding time for couples, alone time for those who want to travel solo and perfect for families who want to get closer together. We highly recommend this spot and will surely be back again. Mary from Toronto, Canada"

Mexico Travel Tips

It’s no wonder why Americans vacation in Mexico more than any other country in the world. With its picturesque beaches, ancient civilizations and worries-by-the-wayside attitude, this warm wonderland makes an ideal getaway for families and spring breakers alike. Wedged between the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, there is no shortage of adventure or relaxation. Listen to the waves crash on the shore or explore the steps where Mayans used to gather thousands of years ago. Whichever it is, get used to carefree livin’.

Mexico City

As the capital of Mexico, Mexico City is bursting with one of the largest metropolitan centers in the world that’s located on the former grounds of the Aztecs. Take a trip back in time as you step foot in the Plaza de la Constitución Zocala, the ancient capital and ceremonial center of Tenochtitlan and the biggest public square in the western hemisphere. In the center of the square, the army ceremoniously raises and lowers the flag each day at 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. You won’t want to miss Templo Mayor, where archaeologists are still discovering artifacts about Aztec history and lifestyle. Mexico’s National Museum of Anthropology unveils everything from pre-Hispanic Mayan cultures to the Spanish conquest. Then dress sharp as you make for one of the countless five-star restaurants, or chat with the locals in artsy neighborhoods like Romo or Condesa. As a stunning stratification of ancient ruins beneath modern bustle, Mexico City is a must-visit.

Puerto Vallarta

With a kaleidoscope of activities along 40 miles of coastline, Puerto Vallarta has it all. It is tucked in the Sierra Madre Mountains, and its locals have be known to welcome visitors with open arms. Swimming with dolphins, boating across the bay and unwinding along El Malecon are all on the menu here. Thrill-seekers, take on the adventure of a lifetime at the Puerto Vallarta Outdoor Adventure Tour, where you can speed across canopies zip-lining, embark on a 4x4 off-road drive and even go rappelling down a waterfall! Once you’re beat and need a little rest, hang out in the oceanside central plaza to gaze at the beauty of the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, an emblem of the Puerto Vallarta that is famous across the world.


Live it up amidst the hustle and bustle of the Cancun nightlife. Party-rockin’ bars and clubs bursting with music and dancing are everywhere. Pulse-pounding rhythms and an up-till-5 attitude make Cancun a haven for college spring breakers. However, it is also a great cultural destination for those who want to experience Chichen Itza, an awe-inspiring Mayan archaeological site which was a main hub of the ancient civilization. Avoid crowds by getting there early in the morning before the tour buses arrive. Along the coast, the beaches are pristine; Isla Mujeres and Playa Linda, among others, offer magnificent swimming with even better views.

San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel del Allende provides an authentic Mexican escape off the beaten path from overcrowded beaches and tourist lines. Situated on the steep hillside, the city exudes a feeling of warmth as the churches, orange rooftops and brightly colored buildings serve as an inspiration for the artists who live there. During the day, you can take your lover horseback riding or visit Bellas Artes for a look into the study of visual arts, dance and music since 1938. Bask in the beauty of El Charco del Ingenio, San Miguel’s botanical garden, that features 445 aces of ecological reserve that the Dalai Lama declared one of the five “zones of peace” in Mexico. It gives you an opportunity to slow life down again and enjoy it as it comes. When the sun sets, grab a delicious meal at Cafe Rama for a casual yet elegant atmosphere.


Located off the eastern coast along the Caribbean, Cozumel is a small island that boasts big fun. Wade in the turquoise waters of Palancar Beach that are beyond dreamy. It is known for water sports like snorkeling, sailing and kayaking. Expert divers tend to flock to North Beach. Or, embark on a pirate cruise for dinner and fun for the whole family. Discover Mayan remains at the San Gervasio Ruins, a shrine where Mayan women used to visit to worship their goddess of love and fertility Ixchel. Wear close-toed shoes, though, as you’ll be walking black sand beaches with lizards and iguanas. For nature buffs, head south to embrace Faro Celerain Eco Park, also known as Parque Punta Sur, which holds 2,500 acres of indigenous species, such as crocodiles and sea turtles.

Come see why Mexico’s idyllic beaches, historical sites and vibrant city life are a mecca for tourists year-round.
