It is private, but convenient, with Bus and Taxi service just outside the door.
BARLOVENTO is a newer 38 unit beachfront condominium property. It is a private quiet getaway but just 3 minutes north, by car or taxi, from the wonderful village of Bucerias with its authentic Mexican charm, over 100 restaurants (many right on the beach), local treasure hunt shopping, art galleries and friendly people. A few minutes further south is Nuevo Vallarta, where you have entertainment, excitement, water park, swimming with dolphins, fantastic excursions and shopping. Downtown Puerto Vallarta is just 10 minutes further south with all it’s historic old world setting and activities. 5 minutes to the north is La Cruz and then luxurious Punta Mita, and a little further are the quaint surfing villages of Sayulita & San Pancho.
This is a BEACHFRONT property on beautiful Banderas Bay with million dollar panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. Banderas Bay has over 100 km of coastline and beaches surrounded by the majestic Sierra Madres mountians and “jungle”, This is the birthing place for the HUMPBACK WHALES and the year round home of thousands of Dolphins. Have you ever wondered where the whales all go when they head south for the winter – they are right in Banderas Bay – whale watching tours abound during the months of November through March. We have even seen some Orcas on the whale watching tours.
Start your morning with an invigorating 20 minute beach walk to the Bucerias' beachfront restaurants for breakfast, have a professional massage on the beach for about $25 before walking back or taking a 3 minute taxi ride home.
RECREATION – When you want a break from relaxing and soaking up the sun at Barlovento’s pools and beach, there is much to choose from. Well known Vallarta Adventures has something for everyone – check their website for unforgettable experiences. You can take a boat ride to a remote mountain spot in the bay and ride mules up into the mountains, then zip line over the jungle, repel down a 100 foot waterfall to swim in its cool waters below, then zip line and waterslide your way down the mountain to the boat. There is a also first class water park nearby. For fishing, Banderas Bay has Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna and Mahi Mahi and is home to International Tournaments. Fishing here is fantastic. I caught an 8 foot Sailfish 15 minutes from shore. Horseback riding on the beach or in the mountains or four wheeling adventures are great fun filled days.
WATER SPORTS – Surfing, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, kayaking, jet skis, sailing, parasailing are all right there for you.
GOLF courses abound in the area with courses in all ranges from Jack Nicklaus to simple public courses.
DINING You could stay 6 months at our condo eating at great restaurants every day and never go to any of them twice, but you’ll find yourself going back to your favorites where they come to know you. Enjoy fresh fish and shrimp daily right from the bay at the restaurants or cook your own fresh fish, on our grill, from the La CRUZ Seafood Market which is at the water’s edge and only 5 minutes from our condo – watch the fisherman bring in their catch and choose your dinner right there for ridiculously low prices and they will fillet it in front of you..
SHOPPING - Supermarkets - Mega, Walmart, Sam’s Club and malls are a few minutes away - even Costco is in Puerto Vallarta
RELAX - Anything you could want on your Mexican vacation is minutes away, yet you can rest, get away from it all and enjoy your privacy, peace and quiet at Barlovento. Meet the wonderful people from Canada, USA and Mexico that will be at our beachfront pool. It is not a big resort so you meet and get to know your neighbors whether they are full time residents or vacationers like yourselves. We have made many friends during our stays at Barlovento. Enjoy our quiet beach, free of beach vendors to interrupt your leisure.
CONVENIENCE – shopping, dining, clubs, nightlife, city life and limitless recreation are minutes away from your tranquil retreat.
SAFETY – Puerto Vallarta’s big welcome sign says “Friendliest City in the World” - it's safe here and the locals are very nice to you.
HEALTH – The area has good food, pure water and first class hospitals and medical services
Additional services are available – Our property manager can arrange airport transportation, grocery shopping before arrival, personal chef, and almost any other concierge service you would like. Additional maid service can be arranged during your stay for an extra charge.
We welcome your inquiries. This is for vacationers who like high quality, but affordable, peaceful, quiet, private and convenient vacations. This is the place to go if you're tired of the glitzy, crowded, fast moving type of vacations that you come back from needing another vacation to relax.
Welcome to our Mexican home. We hope you will be our guest.

About Mike Cook
Owners - Mike and Bev Cook, from New Jersey, have been vacationing in the Puerto Vallarta area for over 13 years. It is our favorite place in the world to get away, and we have been to many exotic places around the globe, We finally found a property we just had to own. We purchased it new in 2013, so we are the first owners of our beautiful condo. We furnished it with ourselves in mind with comfortable and beautiful furniture, local paintings, 3 TVs, WIFI, quality linens and everything we could want for our private getaway. We decided to let others enjoy our special spot until I retire when we will spend 6 months a year there. We enjoy the peaceful serene atmosphere of the small resort at Barlovento. It's easy to get to know your neighbors whether they are there full time, seasonally or renting for a week or month. The main pool becomes the meet and greet place, with plenty of lounge chairs. We also have our favorite restaurants where they know us and welcome us back each time we are there. We have made many long time friends in the Puerto Vallarta area. The folks at Barlovento are a good mix of Canadians, Americans, and Mexicans. A friendly melting pot.
Mike Cook purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Mike Cook chose Bucerías
Barlovento is a small boutique resort without the loud music, and various activities in the larger resorts - yet a couple of minutes to everything you could want. It is peaceful, relaxing and safe. With a lap pool and a main family pool with in water lounges, 2 hot tubs and the beach right there you have lots of choices to frolic or relax in the water. We have 2 spaces in the underground security gated parking garage. Bucerias is a 2 minute drive with over 100 restaurants. We often walk to Bucerias on the beach and enjoy one of their well known beachfront restaurants. La Cruz is also a 5 minute drive in the other direction, where you can find more restaurants, a modern marina if you are a boater, and the La Cruz fresh seafood market is great. You can buy all kinds of seafood just off unloaded from the small fishing boats. It can't get any fresher. Try the Parrot Fish (Perico) - its amazing on our BBQ grill on the terrace Shopping is also very convenient with Mega, Super Walmart and Sam's Club just a few minutes away. We are conveniently located about 15 minutes north of the airport. Nuevo Vallarta, about 10 minutes drive, is right after Bucerias where you will find high end resorts, lots more restaurants of every kind, a water park and plenty of nightlife. Continuing south another 10 minute is Puerto Vallarta where it all started. Lots and lots to do there. Of course Bandaras Bay is where the whales and dolphins go in the winter months to give birth. There are many whale watching tours and I'm told, if you are lucky you may see some whales or dolphins from our terrace.
What makes this Condo unique
Views, Views, and more views of beautiful Bandaras Bay. Our terrace allows panoramic views of the sunrises, sunsets, the ocean and the mountains. Private - only 4 condos per floor. Even the terraces have privacy walls - no looking at your neighbor or vice a versa.

Clean, comfortable, quiet, safe with captivating views!!
My husband and I had a very nice visit here at Barlovento! This unit is equipped with all of the necessary amenities. The sea views from this unit are simply marvelous, located nicely in Banderas Bay. We enjoyed the 2 pools and beach access. Walked to Star Bay just to the south for afternoon fish tacos and a nice breakfast too. We took the bus and mini van taxi's everywhere including Sayulita, old town Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta, day trips through Bucerias and La Cruz. This was a special experience for us to hang with the locals each day. Also the weather this time of year is glorious, in the mid 80's. Juan Carlos, facilities manager and Jorge the security guard were very helpful, and friendly in guiding local attractions and advising which buses to take to each location. They organized an Uber driver to pick us up back to the airport on our last day. We did shop and Mega and La Comer stores for basic food items and bottled water with good success. All in all, a wonderful trip!! Thanks Mike

Great condo, great location!
We were at Barlovento for 5 weeks. Everything that we needed was in the condo, very well equipped and nicely decorated with beautiful art. The view was spectacular! We very much enjoyed the two pools. The property managers were nice and helpful. We were able to arrange, through the manager, someone to come pick us up at the airport and make a stop at the Mega for a few supplies. We visited Bucérias, La Cruz, Sayeluta and Puerto Vallarta. The best restaurants you will find are in Bucérias, 10 minutes from the condo by taxi or 25 minutes by foot. We are looking forward to return.
Thank you Ginette for your kind comments. We are so happy that you enjoyed everything and were able to utilize the surrounding area attractions in the adjacent towns. Reading reviews like this make all of our efforts worthwhile. Our objective is for our guests to have great and memorable vacations. It sounds like that worked out for you. We look forward to having stay at our place again sometime. many of our guests book year after year so be sure to contact us early the next time you want to come to Bucerias. Enjoy your spring and summer. Thank you and Denis for being our guests.
