If this is the year to explore the area around Banderas Bay, then do it from the comfort of 3D-Resort in the quaint Mexican town of Bucerias. Professionally decorated and appointed, you will find that the interior of this elegant 2-bedroom condo offers you the comforts of home and more. However, as you step through the door of this 3rd floor condo, your gaze does not rest on the furnishings; it is the view of Banderas Bay which will leave you in awe. Walk to the sliding doors and step out on to the balcony. Banderas Bay lies before you until it meets the horizon. As you look left, you see the beach wind its way to Puerto Vallarta; to the right, follow the shore line through Bucerias and beyond to where it disappears into Banderas Bay. Be sure to pack your binoculars so you can check out the marine life from the terrace since dolphins and whales visit the protected waters of the bay.
3D-Resort is the perfect vacation home! From top-of-the-line amenities in the kitchen, to plush towels hanging in the bathrooms, your comfort and convenience are assured. A large infinity pool waits for you at ground level overlooking the beach. A fitness center is on site.
Punta Arena is the name of the 30-unit condo complex you are vacationing in. Of the many activities you can enjoy during your stay here, walking or jogging the long stretch of uninterrupted sandy beach in front of the condo should be one of them. There are many adventures to enjoy such as snorkeling, scuba diving, whale watching, deep sea fishing, kite and wind surfing. There are a number of golf courses in the area. Puerto Vallarta is only 15 minutes away and offers great night time entertainment. Remember to bring great reading material for those evenings when you are relaxing on a chaise and listening to the sounds of the waves from the balcony.
You will find it hard to resist the old-world charm of Bucerias. Stroll to the town square and explore the sidewalk displays of hand-crafted jewelry, ornaments, clothing, and food. If authentic Mexican souvenirs are what you are looking for, you will find them here for “negotiable” prices. Check out the many fine restaurants.
Enjoy your stay at 3D-Resort and plan to return in the near future.
Every time we have a chance to come to Bucerias we fall in love with its charms even more. There are always wonderful new amenities and restaurants to experience. You can be as active or as relaxed as you wish- we always enjoy a little of both. We welcome our guests comments and hope you have a wonderful holiday in our condo!
Chris Daniel purchased this condo in 2008
Punta Arena is a beautiful complex that has the best location in Bucerias. The property is immaculate and the condo is spacious and beautifully decorated. It has marble flooring throughout the condo and deck. Both bedrooms have wonderful views, the master to the ocean, the guest room to the hills in the back.
All you will see is a spectacular ocean view through the double wide patio doors which completely open onto the deck. If you wake up before 10 you should be able to see the dolphins and whales between November and April. All year round you will enjoy watching the pelicans fish, local oyster divers and the colorful sails of the wind and kite surfers as they fly by.
Wow! This place is amazing! We've rented many great homes in Mexico for over ten years, but this place wins the prize. The condo unit is fantastic and clean and lovely and beautiful with sliding glass windows that open to create such a seamless space between outside and inside. We never needed our air conditioning as the breeze through the open windows was enough. The pool and beach were steps away, making it so easy to do both at once. Our three kids (4,6 and 10) had no trouble with the surf and all learned to boogie board on our trip. They swam like crazy in the pool and the depths were perfect for all ages. We watched dolphins playing in the bay in the mornings and spent hours combing the beach for shells and sea glass where you could walk for miles. We rented a car and did some day trips, but it wasn't at all necessary to have a car in Bucerias as there is everything you'd need within walking distance (or an easy cab ride). The whole booking/planning experience was awesome and painless and Chris was super helpful and answered every single question. The property management is top notch and very easy to contact and the caretakers onsite were always ready with a smile and help. Two days into our 2 week trip we re-booked for next year and cannot wait to go back!
At the last minute my wife and I decided to go back to Bucerias for a long weekend. As we have stayed in Punta Arena previously, we wanted to stay there again as the location is ideal. Chris was wonderful in helping us get our accommodation sorted and his condo was perfect. We had two friends come with us and they loved the condo, the view and the location also. This is a great building and Chris's condo is perfect. Thanks Chris, we'll be back!

What a great place! This 3rd floor condo in Punta Arena is beautiful, spacious and very open with nice ocean breezes and plenty of sun. The kitchen has modern stainless appliances with granite countertops and there are two master bedroom suites with King beds and two baths. We always have had lots of hot water and pressure in the showers. I appreciate having a washer and dryer in the unit. There is a huge covered outdoor living space on the deck with gorgeous ocean views. The furniture both indoor and out is very comfortable. The owner updates and maintains this property to perfection. Weekly maid service is included. The Wifi and television services are reliable. There are many restaurants available just a short walk from the condo. I can not overstate how convenient this is! No need to rent a car. We highly recommend this condo and have already arranged to return next year. Our thanks to Chris our gracious host and owner for all he has done to accomodate our stays. There were even new furniture and art pieces and a new mattress added to update the condo this year. After traveling various places in Mexico for over 35 years, Punta Arena in Bucerias has become our new favorite Mexican destination.
We stayed at the condo for 3 weeks with our children. (6, 5, & 16 month old baby) Each day till the end of our stay we continued to be wowed by the breathtaking views and sunsets! This condo is simply amazing and no picture does it any justice. The views and outdoor/indoor flow with the glass wall that opens up were absolutely phenomenal, as were the accommodations, furnishings and pool area. Besides the condo, the small town of Bucerias has left a special place in our memories...we were captured by all of it and hope to be back!
We rented a car (even though there is plenty in walking distance) and explored some of the surrounding towns, beaches and cities. Some of our favorite stops and places to explore were: the town of Sayulita, Chacala Beach, Destiladeras Beach, the LaCruz Fish Market and Marina, & evening walks at Puerto Vallarta.
Our favorite food places that we highly recommend trying are La Postal (right down the street) and Tacos on the Street in La Cruz. We cannot say enough good about our experience in Mexico, and are we are very thankful to Chris for accommodating us and working with us through out the entire booking/stay process. We hope to be back Next Year!! Thanks Chris!!
