  • Perfection - Paradise!

    "Playas Paraiso is truly the most amazing vacation we've ever had. We were two couples, and no photo does justice to the beauty of this incredible place. If you're looking for beautiful, private beaches, clear green-blue water, with the temperature absolutely perfect, and attentive service from wonderful, genuine people, do not look anywhere else but Playas Paraiso. It surpassed all of our expectations. We swam, hiked, paddle-boarded, kayaked, went on an unforgettable boat ride, ate amazing, fresh cuisine prepared for us at every meal, slept with screen doors that let in the gentle breeze and the sound of the waves. We could have gone snorkeling, but ran out of time. We went hiking and ended up at points over the open ocean with breathtaking views, crashing waves against rocks and islands, and amazing sunsets. And one night, Juan, the owner, and his wonderful staff made us dinner on the beach to celebrate a birthday. It was spectacular. Candles partially dug into the sand on the beach, a candle-lit table looking out over the water at sunset, an incredible dinner, and a birthday cake, topped with those candles that don’t blow out, haha! The house, Casa Tauro, is stunning. Open to fresh air, every room with a jaw-dropping view of the beach, bay, trees, and islands, a gorgeous pool that is on the main level and is part of the main house, natural rock used as part of the wall, great open patios attached to each room, perfectly decorated: classy, elegant, but casual and comfortable and simple. Karina, the sweet woman who took care of us every day, is a wonderful cook with her fresh, tasty food that perfectly suits this heavenly place. But it is the owner, Juan, who really makes this piece of paradise so very special, and who takes it to the next level. He is the perfect host - genuine, kind, fun, hospitable, honest - a quality person, and he has a very special place. He keeps it real and natural, and let the best of nature that is Playas Paraiso take over and change you. Thank you Juan, Karina, the rest of the wonderful staff - and Kiesha (sp?) - from the bottom of our hearts. You all are part of that dream come true of what paradise is really like. We cannot wait to come back, and we WILL come back. You and your beautiful Playas Paraiso are unforgettable."

  • Fifth year in our home away from home

    "This is our fifth time staying in this condo. We started with a one month stay and now stay ten weeks. We love staying here. The owner of the condo is very personable and accommodating. He provides a property manager for you in case you have any problems in the condo- he is very attentive to your needs. The condo itself is very nice-comfortable king bed and well equipped kitchen if you care to cook in-if not the Marina is a short walk away. The grocery store is within walking distance, the bus stops in front of Portofino and cabs are readily available. The pool and beach area are beautiful and the poolside grill has great food and service at reasonable prices. We have made many friendships just by going to the pool. Of course, downtown Puerto Vallarta with all it has to offer is a bus ride away. The port and the Marina area offer many options for water sightseeing trips. In our opinion it just doesn't get better than this!"

  • Retired and loving it

    "We had an awesome stay at Sue's condo at Puerto Las Hadas. We were there four 4 weeks and the time just flew by! Lots of friendly Canadians and that is what made our trip for us. Condo was good although though the floors could use a good cleaning! Bed was comfy and having Canadian satellite TV was a plus. We did have a few days of rain which apparently is rare for Manzanillo otherwise temp was great. Pool was very nice with very good service from pool restaurant!"

  • Kaspers and Wilsons

    "How do you put into words one of the most relaxing and beautiful vacations of our lives. The Unit and amenities were beyond expectation and the staff were excellent and attentive. We enjoyed the ease of taking public transportation to and from Zhiwa and Playa Linda. We visited some ruins and enjoyed many local restaurants where the food was excellent. The locals were very friendly and helpful since our Spanish is woefully lacking. We recommend this unit (and Ixtapa) to anyone and everyone who wants to enjoy luxurious accommodations with fabulous amenities. We will be back."

Mexican Riviera Travel Tips

Getting to Mexican Riviera Vacation Rentals

The Mexican Riviera refers to an extensive region on the western coast of Mexico. It includes more than 20 cities that are located along the coastline. Some of the more well-known resort areas include Acapulco, Manzanillo, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, Sinaloa, and Ensenada. There are several major international airports in the region and your arrival point will largely be determined by where you will be spending your vacation. There are regional airports at both Acapulco and Mazlatan, and many flights to this area route via Mexico City which is located further inland. If you will be traveling to the Baja California Peninsula then your best option is to fly into Tijuana which is located just south of the U.S. border. From there, you can rent a car and drive to your destination. There are no rail connections and only a few bus routes along the coast. The best way to get around is to fly into the closest international or regional airport and rent a car. Depending on where you are staying, you could also simply use taxi transportation from the airport.

Stylish Hospitality at Mexican Riviera Vacation Houses

Many of the rental homes are typically spacious and can accommodate small groups of friends or large families. Often between 10 and 12 guests can stay in one villa without feeling cramped. The living areas are generally large and many of the homes have outdoor patios where you can enjoy the magnificent sunsets over the Pacific Ocean. Multiple bedrooms and bathrooms ensure that all guests have sufficient privacy and personal space. The kitchens tend to be the center of the homes where families can dine together and catch up on the day’s activities. Modern appliances ensure that vacation catering is easy and convenient. Many of the vacation homes are available with a staff who ensures that laundry, cleaning and meals are taken care of. Many of the vacation homes are set along the coastline, providing easy access to the beaches.

Sun and Fun at Mexican Riviera Condos

The west coast of Mexico is known for its consistent sunshine, great vacation vibe, long stretches of beaches and excellent surfing. Typically, many of the visitors attracted to the many cities and towns along the coast are sun lovers and surfers. With the development of kite surfing and wind surfing, you will see many colorful sails leaping up above the waves on a day when the conditions are good. Beachcombers can enjoy long leisurely strolls along the beaches and relish the sound on the surf pounding on the beach. There are many historical and cultural attractions in the cities. You can visit museums and monuments and browse local craft stalls for souvenirs. Some souvenirs include bracelets and handcrafted jewelry, copper and brass items, carvings, paintings, and textiles.

Best Time of Year to Travel to Puerto Vallarta Vacation Rentals on the Mexican Riviera

Puerto Vallarta is a popular vacation destination because it has some of the best weather on Mexico’s western coastline. Throughout the year, the average daily temperature varies between 70 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes it an ideal destination for sun lovers. The late summer months are typically the low season as they are characterized by very high temperatures and heavy rains. Occasionally, tropical storms blow in between July and September bringing strong winds and torrential downpours. The peak travel season occurs during the drier winter months between December and April. During this time, temperatures are still warm and many people from icy northern climates travel to the Mexican Riviera for a mid-winter break.
