Casa Las Palmas is your perfect tropical Mexican get away. In this coconut palm grove with beautiful manicured gardens, common area pool and active sea turtle sanctuary, is our home away from home. Casa Las Palmas is one of 10 beautiful Villas for rent at Playa las Tortugas.
'The villas at Playa Las Tortugas, 70 miles north of Puerto Vallarta, share 5 miles of creamy beach with nothing but a coconut palm plantation. Volunteer to rescue turtle eggs on the beach, place baby turtles on the wet sand, and watch as moonlight sparkling off the waves guides them to the sea- 'Sunset Magazine'
Our 'casa' with 2 bedrooms on the ground floor each with a full bath, walk in shower and individual beach access with outdoor shower will meet all your needs.
A winding stairwell guides you to the second floor living/dining/kitchen area with 2 covered patios and 1/2 bath. The views of the beach and gardens are easily enjoyed from this level, while you are cooking in the open kitchen listening to music and visiting with family/guests.
From the living area continue to the roof terrace with it's own thatched palapa to cook on our grill, sunbathe, play board games, read a book or just sit and listen to the crashing waves on the beach, watch the incredible sunsets, stare at the stars so brilliant you think you can touch them. The chairs and lounges are so comfortable, the breezes so pleasing and the views so incredible that you may not leave this inviting terrace other than to refill your drink or obtain a snack.
From the main living level look down through the palms onto the warm blue water and sand of the Pacific Ocean. And, yes, the sunsets are frequently as spectacular as our unique setting. You have the opportunity to either enjoy the sunning and playing in the waves, or a swim in the fresh water pool at Playa Las Tortugas, with it’s palm-roofed palapa and comfortable sunning chairs, or just sit and relax with a cool drink. Need some shade? The tall coconut palms and palapa offer you a respite from the sun. Some of our guests say they hardly ever come down from the rooftop because it’s their very favorite place, in the world.
“My Shangri-La, the place I could recommend without reservation or caveat ... I’ve been in search of the perfect beach since I first saw the ocean, decades ago. Now I’ve found it.” The Washington Post
Our entire state of Nayarit area enjoys one of the most favorable climates in the world. Average daily year-round temperatures range from highs of 80-85 degrees (perfect beach weather) to lows of 60-70 degrees(perfect sleeping weather). Swim year round, but consider packing a light sweater for the evenings in the winter months. Rain, when it falls, generally occurs between June and September as night-time or pre-dawn thundershowers.
You can visit small typical Mexican villages, enjoy fresh fish and other local seafood at small rustic beachfront restaurants, tour a tropical river and waterfalls, see historic San Blas, and drive up through the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountains to colonial Tepic where crafts of the Huichol Indians are found.
Playa Las Tortugas has kilometers of uncrowded, clean sand beach, and a number of activities both on property and nearby such as Surfing, Wave Kayaking, Boogie Boarding, Fishing, and Shelling, Canoeing, Whale Watching, Bird Watching, Walking or Running on Miles of Sand Beach, and Sea Turtle Conservation activities (during season) at the Sea Turtle Conservation Camp. Frequently there is one festival or another in small towns within an hour of our location. There are a number of excursions you might take, with or without a guide.
Playa Las Tortugas is located on a section of coastline which is nesting habitat of several species of sea turtle in the beautiful state of Nayarit, Mexico 70 miles north of the Puerto Vallarta (PVR) International Airport and about 50 miles west of Tepic, the colonial capital of Nayarit.
