It is ideal for families, reunions, and business retreats (accommodates up to 18 people but we prefer groups up to 16): there is a 5-bedroom main house, a 3-bedroom guest house, and a 2-bedroom pool house surrounded by two acres of lush gardens (very tranquil).

Hacienda Alegre is a 2-acre nature experience with the main house overlooking the beach with sweeping, uninterrupted views east to Puerto Vallarta against a backdrop of mountains around the horseshoe-shaped Bay of Banderas. To the west, you look along the rugged coastline towards the Pacific Ocean.
Surfing is a daily delight. The sunsets (and cocktail hour) are magical from the large patio. During the winter and early spring, the bay is visited by whales, dolphins and other interesting sea characters. Every day, summer or winter, the lines of pelicans gliding above the ocean waves never cease to amaze.
