  • Our home away from home!!

    "We are 2 couples from Colorado and we have been renting homes throughout Mexico and Belize for 20 years. We rented Casa Pamela Nov. 2013 and again in March 2014 and have it scheduled for Nov. 2014 again! The rental manager, Marilyn, is one of the few I have dealt with that answers immediately and sends thorough and complete directions for the area and the house. The house is beautiful and in excellent condition and located an easy and quick walk to La Cruz where we buy fresh fish or meat at Kenny's Meat Market, fresh produce at the little stores. We have met a wonderful cab driver and he waits for us every day to give us a ride back with our groceries. He is learning English and we are learning Spanish from him. We enjoy the evenings cooking out on the grill and relaxing while taking in the ocean scenery (can't find a better view with all the boats and the lights of PV and Nuevo across the bay) and taking evening swims in the pool. Casa Pamela has always been spotless and, a big surprise for Mexico, all appliances, toilets, etc. work!!!!!! Everyone who works to keep Casa Pamela in such great condition are friendly and fun to get to know, the maid, the gardener, the pool man, the guards. We also love Canelo, La Puntilla's dog. He is sweet and friendly, but will leave you alone if you want. He will also go for walks with you!!! We have always felt extremely safe at Casa Pamela and now we can't wait to get to our second home in the sun this November and already have plans to go back in March 2015!!!"

  • Mexican Paradise

    "My husband, daughter (age 17) and myself were fortunate enough to stay at Casa Lagarta this spring. It was a perfect blend of relaxation and activity, in this hidden piece of paradise, in the little village of Platanitos, Mexico. (approx. 2 hours north of Puerto Vallarta) Casa Lagarto itself sits above the beach a few hundred feet and is absolutely beautiful! Although the pictures provided are nice, they do not do justice to how fantastic this villa is. It looks as though it was built yesterday, it is kept in immaculate condition. The dining and sitting area are open to the wonderful views of the ocean and all of the amazing foliage on the grounds (which of course are also immaculate!) There are a couple of patios, one open to sun all day and one partially covered, where the massage table sits ready and waiting for you! The pool is another highlight of the villa. It is covered so the midday sun does not beat down, but when the sun is at any other angle during the day you have sunny spots and shady spots to take you pick from. The kitchen is large and beautifully decorated, as are the bedrooms. Again, it is Absolutely Beautiful! You truly are in your own secluded little paradise. The sandy beach is a short walk along the rocks, or you can go out Casa Lagarta's front door and walk approximately 3 blocks and you are at the beach, where there are several little restaurants also. Speaking of eating... I would highly recommend paying for Casa Lagarta's cook, Terri, to make your meals while you are there. Her cooking is outstanding! Yummy!!! A definite must. Paul and Robyn are fantastic hosts, so knowledgeable about Platanitos and the surrounding area. They had our horseback ride on the beach, massage, and jungle cruise(all of which I would recommend) all set up for us when we got there, and had planned these activities so we still had plenty of relaxation time. There really are as many, or as few, as you want. It's really up to you. We truly enjoyed our time at Casa Lagarto, and found a new piece of Mexico (the less crazy, less commercialized, more relaxing and beautiful), that we will definitely look forward to visiting again and again. Thank you Paul and Robyn for sharing your Mexican Paradise with us!"

  • Enjoyed

    "We spent 3 weeks in this 2 bedroom condo. It is positioned less than a block from Fifth Avenue and two blocks to the beach so one could not ask for a more convenient situation as well as easy walking distance to the Mega food store. The unit was well furnished, lots of closets, and in very clean condition. We found the owners easy to deal with and they were very quick to answer any of our questions or deal with any problems. It certainly is on our list for future if we return to Playa Del Carmen."

    "This is the second time my husband and I have stayed here and it is a superb experience each time. When you walk into the condo and see the amazing view from the front deck and the beautiful grounds you know you are in a special place. There are people who freak out thinking of traveling down into Mexico, (My husband was one of them, WAS) but we never once felt unsafe. We especially felt safe at Randy's and Ann's place. Gated complex with security, a 2 car garage. We both highly recommend staying here, we know that we will be back as soon as we can."

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.
