  • Lovely vacation home(s)

    "We were 4 couples and rented both homes. It was a perfect spot. We have stayed in Bucerias numerous times, and while these homes are not on the water, they are not far. The pool and outdoor space is so lovely, we spent lots of time relaxing there. The homes are well designed and very tasteful. The kitchens were well appointed. We walked nearly daily from the house to Nuevo Vallarta - approximately 5 miles south down the beach. We took a bike tour through the town and up into the mountainside. There are some great local restaurants. A couple evenings we stayed in and Lucy cooked our meals which was a lovely treat. A very relaxing holiday. The owners and the property manager are very easy and accommodating to deal with."

  • Had a great time

    "This condo is wonderful. It is decorated very tastefully and painted nice. The view is amazing. This is our second year at this condo and will come back again. Marco, the property manager, met us in the condo and answered all of our questions. Since he manages more condos in the complex, we saw him almost every day and could get suggestions on where to shop for groceries and eat."

  • Great Location

    "My wife and I spent 2 weeks at the condo in January, 2015. The location of the complex in Bucerias is almost in a perfect spot. Everything is very close and easy to get to. There are many very fine restaurants within just a few minute walk. Stores for those missing items also within an easy 5 minute walk.The view, especially sunsets...AMAZING! The pool area was really nice and well looked after. Never had to fight for a lounge chair or umbrella. The condo itself has everything you need to prepare your own meals, including a really nice large Weber Q bbq. The balcony was were we spent most of our time while in the condo, took all our meals on it. With that view how can you not. Sally is the property manager...very friendly and helpful. Would recommend this condo without question."

  • 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."

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.
