San Pancho is wonderful for people who love the ocean without the overwhelm of tourists or refinery. The beach itself is 1.8 miles long of beautiful white sand. Near main street, the beach has clusters of people where a few local restaurants serve lunch, dinner and drinks. In either direction the beach is unpopulated except for New Year's and Easter. On the left end is great surf and fishing pangas. You can ask fishermen to take you deep sea fishing. Occasionally the national Mexican surf championships is here. At the right end is the occasional surf caster or boogie boarder.
We love our small mixed neighborhood of friendly folks, both Mexican and Gringo. Our cul-de-sac has a particularly relaxed feeling while still giving an authentic Mexican experience. We walk or bike (rent) everywhere. The ocean is a ten minute walk and almost everything you could want is between here and there: wonderful restaurants, taco stands, the EntreAmigo community center, shopping, bars, pilates classes and soccer field. Las Huertas Golf Club is 3/4 mile away: they rent clubs for both men and women. Just walking to the ocean, taking a swim and having lunch under a palapa near the beach is our idea of fun. My husband has discovered mountain motorcycle touring. I enjoy yoga classes and I'm just experimenting with SUP surfing. We love both cooking at home and the amazing restaurants here. Our kids love surfing. A favorite part of the day is at sunset when locals and gringos come together on the beach with babies or margaritas in tow. Horses go by for a sunset riding tour. Eyes are peeled for birds, whales, and butterflies while sipping cold drinks and watching the friendly activity.
The San Pancho Music Festival is a huge draw the last weekend each February. It is a true community affair from school kids to world class performers. It is organized by musician and recording legend Charles Eller - think Putumayo Records. Amazing statistic: the owners of 3 American recording studios own houses in tiny SP. In 2017 the International Swing Break week was held in San Pancho in April with beginners to professional lessons, demonstrations and open party for all. I was smitten and am signing up for 2018.
Exploring the varied coastline is engaging with unique villages, jungle ruins, natural hot springs, a village where prime surf is reachable only by boat, and farmers markets, just to name a few. Sayulita is great for night life; Punta Mita for snorkeling, whale watching &, fishing; La Penita for its Thursday morning market, and Puerto Vallarta for everything city.
A huge bonus while at Casa Polo is our multi-talented and bilingual manager, Abigail. Through her you can arrange in-home massages, foot reflexology, cooking, private yoga or cooking classes, taxi and delivered groceries. You can ask her for references for bike rentals, tours and more. She is a talented chef and massage/health practitioner. In case you have an overflow of friends wanting to be nearby, she also has an adorable cassita on the first floor of her house.

About: Gringos from New York state, ocean lovers with background in Architecture, Environmental Advocacy and Window/Door Manufacturing.
Why San Francisco, Nay., Mexico:
After buying a spectacular seaside property 3 mi. out of town to build our dream house, we planned to first build a spec house in the village to fund construction of our dream house. To our surprise, when Casa Polo was complete, we discovered we loved living in the village more than ocean side & now our seaside lot is going on the market.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Lots of privacy, great manager, plunge pool, close to EntreAmigo community center, end of cul-de-sac.
