  • Wonderful vacation house!

    "I just returned from my trip to Sayulita with my husband and 18 month old. We loved this house! The distance to town was great, an easy 10 minute walk to town that we did several times a day with a toddler with and without our stroller. Lots of activity (chickens, roosters, baby chicks) on the walk that made it fun. We loved the pool and outdoor shower. We always felt very safe, no concerns at all. Laysha was amazing, such a great resource to us! Sayulita is such a special town, was so happy we didn't see any "spring breaker" type crowds here. Great family vacation. The only downside we experienced was the next door neighbors' two pitbulls that bark constantly. A few times they kept us up or woke up our baby. Pretty annoying, but what can you do?"

  • It was Amazing

    "The home is perched above the Malecon with spectacular views. The large wall of windows provided unobstructed panoramic views of the Sea of Cortez and La Paz. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and could not have been happier with the accommodations. What a wonderful vacation. Would not hesitate to stay there again."

  • An Amazing Family Reunioin _ Best Ever!

    "I don't even know how to start writing about what an amazing time we spent at Casa Cardonal! My Mom had a stroke two years ago and was diagnosed with vascular dementia with a terminal diagnosis. Our family wanted to celebrate with her one last time. We wanted a sanctuary to soak in all the love we have for her. We were a family of 9 people and the staff at Casa Cardonal quickly became part of our family. Octavio the driver picked us up and immediately took care of all our needs. Mom was in a wheelchair and the Casa was perfect for her to get around in. Francesca had a Mexican buffet waiting for us when we arrived. It was the best food we have ever experienced in Mexico. Maria tended to all our needs and kept the house spotless. We ate all meals there and each one was fantastic and different! Mino took us out fishing and we caught our limit in Dorado and trigger fish for ceviche. Octavio took us to Cabo for the day and it was perfect in every way! He arranged for shopping, water taxi's and we stopped for lunch at a spot for sushi that was the best we have ever had! even stopped for fresh coconuts that we sipped and then snacked on the way back to the Casa. We lit lanterns off the beach in memory of past loved ones and wishes for Mom. Francesca made the most amazing birthday cake and we celebrated my sisters birthday. It was all like a dream come true. I cannot say enough kind words about this place and the people there. We were never bored! swimming Jacuzzi massages Kayaks snorkeling fishing ping pong shuffle boards paddle boards and a car to take into town for snacks and groceries! Thank you Mike for allowing us to stay at your home. It was truly perfect in every way. We feel blessed and honored to have had such an amazing trip!"

  • Unique Rooftop Experience

    "What an amazing experience we had staying in this beautiful studio. As illustrated in the photos, the open design provides magnificent views of both the mountain and ocean -all while lounging in a comfortable king size bed. Very sweet! The owners live on the first floor and were wonderful hosts. After a long day of travel, the cold beer and snacks that were in our fridge upon arrival, totally hit the spot. One of the truly unique features of the studio is the outdoor shower. We will always remember those starlit showers. Another unexpected delight was the bird activity. Every morning a flock of parakeets would zoom by in a flash of iridescent green. The climb to up from the town takes you through a pleasant Mexican neighbourhood. It's a good workout on a warm day but this charming studio makes it all worthwhile. Finally, the hosts are English speaking and their exquisite taste in design and art is reflected throughout the studio and gardens. It all contributes to a truly unique experience."

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.

Cancun

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.

Cozumel

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.
