The Sell family lives in Alaska, but makes frequent trips to Mexico to thaw out on the beach and enjoy shrimp empanadas. Colleen lived in Mexico as a teen and feels so fortunate to be able to share her love of the Mexican culture, language and lifestyle with her friends and family. Tim has an interest in paddle boarding and fishing. He has dabbled in learning the arts of making the perfect salsa, while Sean (Colleen's brother) works on blending the superior margarita. Grandpa Lloyd is usually found on the veranda practicing his banjo and telling Alaskan fishing stories with the local fishermen.

Casa Navidad's nice size rooms allows for a whole family to share one bedroom. Have the extra space has made it possible to enjoy guests who use the house as a base camp for exploring Costa Alegre. Parts of the coast have gentle beaches like Cuastacomates the perfect place for the kids to play, boogie board and surf. Other beaches in the area are known for their surfing waves and offer a bigger challenge for other seeking more adventure. There are beaches that can feel like they are 'private' in nature and others where you can shop, eat and enjoy the sun. Costa Alegre has something for everyone.
When you are at Casa Navidad you feel as if you have entered your own oasis. The gardens have flowers all year round, attracting humming birds and a rainbow of butterflies. With a variety of cacti there is always a place for a tiny lizard or frog to lounge in the shade. The pool with its shallow end and deep end keeps everyone cool on the hottest of days. On the veranda, there is usually a nice ocean breeze and plenty of shade to relax in whether you are playing games or reading a good book.

Everything was awesome. The house is beautiful and perfect. We had a great time; definitely will stay here again. Love it!
What a marvelous getaway. Casa Navidad was so very beautiful. We visited with our adult son, 89 yr old aunt, husband, myself and tiny dogs. The home itself was very accommodating. It had a fabulous view. The dining area faces the ocean and every night we could watch the magnificent sunsets. The master bedroom was very private with windows to let in the cool night breeze. The kitchen had great views of ocean and lush hillsides. The garden area was set up so you could lie in the shade of palm trees quietly by yourself away from pool area and house.
We were able to take our aunt in a wheelchair to the beach area to restaurants and onto the beach itself because of disability ramps. The fresh seafood just 1 block away from house was delicious.
The owners and property manager together made our visit outstanding and have bent over backward to make us happy. We have booked Casa Navidad for 2017 already. Cuestecomates is a secret little paradise.
