The SpaceThe house can comfortably sleep two small families or three couples. The house was designed by a talented Tepic architect in the spirit of Mexican architect Luis Barragán. Here you will experience Mexico at the northern part of Mexico’s popular tourist destination Riviera Nayarit. It’s a beautiful place to surf on unspoiled beaches, go bird watching on a jungle tour, and taste some of Mexico’s freshest seafood dishes. You also can practice your Spanish with the friendly people in the nearby Pueblos of Aticama and San Blas. The beach is sandy all winter long, but mid-summer to October/November will be dependent on the tides. Guest AccessThe house has 3 Bedrooms plus an office all upstairs, 2 ½ Bathrooms plus an outdoor shower, and a main floor family room. We provide our guests with linens and plenty of towels, so you can keep you packing to a minimum. In the kitchen you will find a gas stove and oven, coffee maker, microwave oven, toaster, blender, service for 12, pots and pans, refrigerator, and bottled water for drinking and cooking. Ceiling fans keep the already cool house refreshed and air-conditioning is available during the very hot weather. Because we are on the beach, the ocean breezes cool the house even during the warm weather. Air-conditioning is rarely needed. The pool looks out over the ocean, yet you still have privacy with a medium-bank seawall. There is high-speed Internet in the house, but no television. Interaction with GuestsThis is our vacation home, so I am not in the area when guests are present, but I am available by phone, email or text at a moments notice. Daniel, our house manager, lives close by and meets guests at check in/check out and is available by phone, email or text at a moments notice Getting AroundWe recommend that you arrive with a car, as many of the amazing attractions require one to visit.

The SpaceWake to the sounds of birds singing and ocean waves lapping the shore. Breathe fresh, clean air and eat healthy organic and delicious food. Relax to your core without the stress of sirens, helicopters, airplanes, traffic, deadlines and all of the trappings of urban life. And then you'll be more receptive to the bountiful possibilities which the cosmos may have in store for you! Guest AccessThe rooftop terrace over-looking the ocean as well as the "mango-shaped terrace" are ideal spaces for resting in a hammock, reading a good book, sunning or partying. If others are doing yoga or meditating, be patient. They won't be at it for very long. Interaction with GuestsI like to orient guests when they first arrive to such facts as the need to arrive at a beachfront restaurant before the sun sets in order to be assured of dinner service (during the week.) On the weekends restaurants tend to stay open somewhat later. The NeighborhoodThe local fishermen depart our beachfront in the evenings and return in the mornings with their fresh catch (for your dining pleasure!) Small farms provide abundant and inexpensive papayas, jack fruit, citrus, bananas, pineapples, guavas, watermelons, nuts, coffee and much more. Getting AroundFrancisco, the local taxi driver will be happy to drive you to local destinations and to wait while you shop, hike the waterfall, etc. Or if you prefer, we are a short walk to the bus stop for adventures in San Blas, Tepic, Guadalajara or Puerto Vallarta. Other Things to NoteBring bug repellant, sun screen, a flash light, sun hat, sandals and also good walking shoes, a swim suit, multiple layers of light weight clothing as it can be cool at night, (long sleeved shirt and long pants are a good idea also.) Also bring plenty of pesos as the nearest ATM is fourteen miles North of us.

Relax and enjoy life in a secluded tropical retreat on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Let the rhythm of the ocean waves caressing the shore be music to soothe your soul. Let the gurgling of the river nearby wash your worries away. The swaying and swishing coconut palms and the gentle ocean breezes combine with the songs of the shore birds to create this tropical symphony. This pastoral paradise is concealed in the state of Nayarit on the western Mexican coast due west of the state’s capital Tepic. The name Símpatico means charming or engaging which sums up this enchanting spot for your next vacation getaway. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ………….THERE"S TWO SEPARATE UNITS, TWO BEDROOM DOWNSTAIRS, AND A STUDIO APARTMENT ABOVE……………. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ A 50%, deposit is required when booking.

The SpaceCasa Carolina is newly built with both authentic Mexican details and modern amenities which makes for a great mix of comfort and culture. It has 3 levels all connected by a spectacular spiral staircase and hand crafted railing. Interaction with GuestsThere will be house managers available to help make your stay comfortable and as trouble free as possible. Other Things to NoteAticama is the perfect place to get away from the busy tourist places and enjoy the tranquillity of a small village and long stretches of beaches, but since it is a smaller town here are a few tips. Pesos are the only way to pay for anything in the town. The main street is paved but all the other streets are cobbled which is charming but sometimes a little harder to walk on. To get to the beach from our casa there is a cobbled street that is down a hill so good walking shoes with no slip soles would be a good idea. Very little English is spoken in the shops and restaurants so an English/Spanish dictionary or translator app is very important. The people are very friendly and will try to help and appreciate any effort you make to communicate in their language. There are a few insects to be aware of so bring insect repellant.

    1,000 sq. ft. Town home ON the south end of 6 miles of sandy beach. Palms and flowers well off the highway in REAL MEXICO. Bahia Matanchen is a resort area that caters to Mexican vacationers so the food and settings are authentic and affordable. The village of Aticama is a 2 km. walk away along the malecon and has many stores and restaurants. Temperatures are almost always in the low 80s during the day and mid 70s at night. Health and dental care are available in San Blas, 12 km to the north.

    The SpaceBEFORE BOOKING PLEASE READ THE BULLET POINTS BELOW DESCRIPTION Aticama really is a hidden treasure off the beaten path designed for those who are adventurous at heart and yearn for a truly meaningful vacation. Perfect for artists and writers or for those who just want some quiet time to contemplate or enjoy this beautiful garden state. Casa Karina is located just above the town of Aticama, on a bluff overlooking the Pacific. It is a private, quiet oasis set in a garden of palm trees with a green jungle surrounding it. While at Casa Karina you can dine inside or out on the patio tables al fresco while enjoying the view of the ocean and the garden tended to by our lovely housekeeper. In or out you always have the soothing sounds of the water in the background. Matanchen beach is about 10 minutes by car. Unspoiled by tourists but spotted with friendly beach restaurants it has wide sandy beach and shallow water perfect for swimming. Just fifteen minutes away by bus or car is the Historic town of San Blas as well as the famous La Tavora mangrove boat trip which takes you through the jungle filled with flora, fauna and most exciting, crocodiles. The local hotel does sightseeing trips if that's of interest and there is always a willing captain willing to take you out to some of the best fishing anywhere on the coast. Or you could plan your own itinerary of waterfall hikes, trips to a coffee plantation, road trip to the capitol city of Tepic or a visit to the release location of sea turtles. If you are tired of the tourists, timeshare salesmen, souvenir hawkers, and high prices of other destinations come see us and experience Mexico at a cheaper, more leisurely, more enjoyable pace. After a few days at Casa Karina and our little town of Aticama you'll understand why we call it Ati-Coma. It helps melt away the stress, hustle and bustle that is so much of our every day (EMAIL HIDDEN)e to a more mellow place to recharge your batteries and enjoy a slower pace of life. The good life! ATICAMA IS BEST SUITED TO SEASONED, ADVENTUROUS TRAVELERS November, 2015: We do our very best to make Casa Karina as comfortable as possible but this a tropical climate which does reek havoc on hard and soft goods which have to be repaired or replaced fairly often and is an ongoing endeavor. We have just repaired the water, power, septic, painted the interior. Bought a new fridge, microwave, coffee pot, blender, hammock, 6 burner stove, pillows and fans for our guest’s comfort. With that said this is a very peaceful, albeit rural part of Mexico and we want to set the right expectations for our potential guests. We have several caretakers in the area while you’re visiting but the bullet points below are things to keep in mind so you can make an educated decision. •Who do I call if I need something? This has always been our biggest challenge in this area. But we now have our local handyman/contractor Jason (on hand for emergency repairs), and our Mexican housekeeper Paty (cleaning, water, gas, garbage), and Donna who often serves as our guests translator (as a favor to Casa Karina). •How does it compare to Cabo or Puerto Vallarta? It doesn’t. This isn’t a resort town, this is really Mexico and your stay here will be very much like living, for a short time, in a community of family who welcome visitors as friends they’ve never met. It’s called the garden state because of the green jungle, wildflowers and butterflies that flourish here and there is some tourism but this is a working fishing and agricultural village. You’ll be sharing that uncrowded beach with a family here and there who’ve taken the day off to have a family picnic or fresh fish lunch. •Wi-Fi. It’s available at the local library, restaurants in San Blas and the restaurant at Casa Manana, down the road. Tip: download movies, shows and music before you arrive to enjoy while you’re here. •Beaches. About 10 minutes or less by car via the beachfront street that runs below the house. Matanchen beach is very wide and shallow making it a great swimming beach. There are palapas (shaded palm shelters) all along the beach and if you’re in front of a restaurant they’ll serve you while you enjoy the surf and sand. My favorite is El Paraiso. The second restaurant as you enter the beach from Aticama. •Groceries. Mexicans shop the fish, fruit and vegetables stands and markets daily. There are no big grocery stores in Aticama. We may be able to find someone to stock the house before you’re arrival if you are interested for a fee. Otherwise my recommendation if you’re coming from Puerto Vallarta is to stop at one of the many mega stores there on your way north, Mexican or American. Purchase one or two Styrofoam ice chests and do a major grocery run. Don’t forget ice. We have excellent coffee here in town picked locally. And at the mini marts you’ll find milk, bread, cheese beer etc… but not a big wine selection, or olive oil, balsamic vinegar and other very non-Mexican items. •Restaurants. Again this is a fishing village. There are taco stands, Lucy’s, the Mexican diner, Casa Manana hotel bar/restaurant, the take out chicken shop and all the fresh fish and shrimp you’d ever want to eat in Aticama. There’s the San Blas Social Club, Red Witch and Garza Canela in San Blas for variety but overall not a lot of actual restaurants. •ATM’s. There are at least 4 in San Blas. •A car is essential. Again this is a rural area. So if you are in great shape and don’t mind walking up and down hills in the heat or to the beach, great. If not then a rental car is really the only way to enjoy everything this area has to offer. •There are geckos. They’re really cool and eat a ton of bugs and you’ll never see them on the floor, only on ceilings. But these little mascots live both in and outside of homes here. Mosquitos and no see ums are only a challenge in the hot, rainy season between June-October and at twilight and dusk and only outside. Casa Karina does have screens and bug spray always helps. •We do not have an egg slicer. Or other fancy kitchen gadgets except those listed above. We try to have wine glasses on hand at all times but they break on the tile floors. We have plenty of glasses, dishes, etc… This weather is tough on knives and pots and pans but the kitchen does have them even if they’re not the fanciest. •Drinking water. There should be at least 2-3, 5-gallon jugs when you arrive and if you need more just ask our caretaker. We cook only with purified bottled water and use a drop of iodine, designed for water purification, when cleaning fruits and vegetables, which we place in a bowl of tap water. •Gas and electric. There are two gas tanks for the house so there should be one full one for your use and a spare. The stove and water heater are gas. The water heater is temperamental but if it does go out you can reach out to my caretaker to get it lit. •Locals. There is a nice sized, active community of Americans and Canadians who run the museum, spay and neuter clinic, cultural center and library, where there’s a Sunday market from November through April. The locals are used to visitors and are very friendly and helpful even if they don’t speak English and you don’t speak Spanish. A smile and an attempt to communicate is always appreciated. •Safety. This is a small tight knit community where violent crime is extremely rare and you see multitudes of children happily playing outside. But petty theft has always been a nuisance in Mexico, which is why people have privacy gates and security windows. Common sense stuff like not leaving bags or purses in plain sight in your car or leaving the house doors open when you’re gone is really the only things to avoid. Tip: We do have a locking closet if you do bring valuable items like electronics that you’d like to store away. •What if I want to barbecue? Again, we replace things ALL the time. Sometimes we may have a barbecue, sometimes, they’ll rust and fall apart in the off-season. Same thing for anything made of cloth or plastic or glass. We are forever buying new hammocks and beach chairs, pillows, fans etc. Right now there’s a barbecue , beach chairs and a lovely hammock, a half a dozen margherita glasses but only 3 wine glasses. Cest la vie. •What do you provide? Sheets, regular and beach towels, clean drinking water, pots/pans, dishes, dish soap, toilet paper, paper towels. And of course fans, indoor/outdoor furniture. Everything else is up in the air depending on when you come, besides what’s mentioned above for the 2015, season. Salt and sugar? The humidity means that they don’t last long? Cooking oil/coffee? I’m leaving some now but typically only if the previous guest picked some up. Anything that is in the kitchen is available for your use. I ask the housekeeper only to clear out perishable items and to leave non perishables for the next guest. •Monteczuemas revenge. You can pick it up in even the fanciest of resort towns. Tip: Buy the highest count of pure, (not a probiotic combination), acidophilus at home a week before your trip and take 1 twice a day, every day including while you’re here. Gives you an iron stomach that will allow you to enjoy the wonderful seafood, fresh fruits and vegetables without the stress. Trust me, it works! Keywords: Vacation Home Guest AccessThe property is enclosed by a locking gate so the inside space is your private sanctuary. From time to time, vendors may knock or ring bell selling seafood or homemade items. There is a small window on the gate to speak through. Use your judgement as to who you open the gate for. No gracias is an acceptable response. There is no internet or landline, but the local library has wifi and available computers at no cost. Donna the neighbor at the corner also allows people to catch wifi signal outside her house. Interaction with GuestsProperty managers are available via phone (and live nearby) but please limit calls before sunrise and after sunset to emergencies. A handbook is provided in the rental so please browse through as many questions about your stay will be found there. There is also a yard person and housekeeper who will respond to specific needs. The NeighborhoodBienvenidos! Casa Karina is a very welcoming vacation spot, and once you settle in, relaxation will come easy. The veranda overlooking the garden and Pacific Ocean will offer a private show of life in Aticama, from hummingbirds and birdsongs, to people on bikes or ponies heading off to work via the malecon below, to fishing boats heading offshore and pelicans on the hunt for breakfast. There is a town announcer who sporadically broadcasts information which is great for practicing your spanish. In town there is a church, seaside plaza with fresh fish and lobster grilling and several small stores for the basics. Getting AroundHaving a vehicle is recommended (though not required) and will enable you to explore the area at your own pace on your own schedule. There are taxi's, buses, and your own two legs to provide some mobility but it will limit you. There is a gated pull-through driveway inside and a parking space outside. Detailed driving instructions will be provided by email as well as phone numbers for taxis and bus schedules. Other Things to NoteAticama is an authentic small Mexican fishing village and very few locals speak English. A little grasp of spanish will help you and of course a travel dictionary. Locals here want to help and understand you if you make a small effort, and its fun! There are also English speaking residents dotted throughout town and the Sunday Market at the library is a great place to shop for garden veggies and homemade items and meet new people.

    The SpaceThe house is spacious, inviting and great for relaxing with lots of outdoor living space and views to die for. The cliffside pool, two terraces, one on the main floor and an upper terrace offer 360-degree views of Matanchen Beach, Pacific coastline, Sierra Madre Mountains and surrounding countryside. When it's time for bed, the sound of the surf lulls you right to sleep. The house ideally accommodates 3 people and up to 5 adults. Guest parking is within the fenced and gated property. Guest AccessGuests have access to the house, pool, outdoor showers, one + acre garden, grounds, and organic mango orchard. The garage and attached studio space are restricted to owner. Interaction with GuestsOwner is nearby--a phone call away to address issues, answer questions, make recommendations for dining, activities, day trips, arrange for catering or grocery stocking services. The NeighborhoodThe hilltop location is 100 ft/30 meters above the ocean with commanding, 360-degree view of the Pacific Ocean, coastline, Sierra Madre Mountains and surrounding countryside. The sleepy fishing village of Aticama and Matanchen beach are 10-15 mins. walk from house. Aticama offers visitors a glimpse Mexico's bygone days with a picturesque seaside plaza, church, and chain of restaurants serving fresh catch seafood and typical Mexican fare, ice cold drinks with lots of color and people watching. Getting AroundA vehicle is recommended to fully appreciate the diverse beauty of the Matanchen Bay area and to experience the many available day trips e.g. excursions to the Secret Beach, El Cora waterfall, Platanitos Beach and Alta Vista. Highways are paved and modern. Local roads are fine, and have speed bumps. The village of Aticama includes cobbled streets with a few pot holes. There is good public transportation, buses, a collectivo, and a local taxi driver available if desired. Other Things to NoteThere is an "outdoors only" cat. No dogs are present during a booking, however when owner is in residence two dogs live on the property. This property is not suitable for small children as the pool is not enclosed and there is steep, 100 ft/30 mt. dropoff along cliff edge.

    The NeighborhoodAticama is a great escape from the busy tourist places. Come enjoy the small fishing village with a long stretch of beach. Enjoy fresh oysters or ceviche on the beach under the Ramadas. There are lots of day trip that are 1/2 hour to 1 1/2 hours away like La Tovara River cruise, but since it is a smaller town here are a few tips. Pesos are the only way to pay for anything in the town. The main street is paved but all the other streets are cobbled which is charming but sometimes a little harder to walk on.

Getting AroundIt's best to have a car, especially for day trips. You can walk into town which is a couple of blocks down a cobblestone road and to the beach which is a 15 minute walk. There is a bus that takes you into San Blas.

      The SpaceA two bedroom one bath with a separate studio apartment above, on one acre of lush gardens. Available for the summer and an incredible $250 per month. Located 90 miles north of Puerto Vallarta Mexico. Guest AccessThe whole house. Interaction with GuestsJuan Carlos will be your contact, he lives in Santa Cruz, 10 minutes on foot. The NeighborhoodThe casa is directly on the Bahia Matanchen. A short walk to Santa Cruz de MiraMar. Casa Simpatico is a family place. Not a party house. We have internet, its been reliable, medium speed. There is no television, one radio station and a CD player. Its among fruit orchards, cool, calm, and quiet. Well, quiet most of the time, except when over joyed children are in the river. Also the place to the north of us rents his place for weddings on occasion, not often. I am proud to say that all of our reviews are good, they are posted on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) under Casa Simpatico. We have been renting since the year 2000 and are without incident. Please be mindful of the coconut trees. Getting AroundCan walk to and from the bus stop, "Playa La Manzanilla". There's 4 Puerto Vallarta busses per day. If you are bussing from Puerto Vallarta the last one is at 03:00 PM (1500). Get a ticket to San Blas, the centro camionara is a short taxi from the PV airport. Juan Carlos can come for you at Las Varas, anytime also if your flight gets in after 1500. There's a charge for that. There's local taxi's. Juan Carlos has a vehicle. There is one beater mountain bike now at the house. I have not had a car there for several years and it works out for me, so unless you have elderly, or small companions you do not really need a car. Other Things to NoteIts old Mexico, not a lot of services, but much natural beauty, and very reasonable. We unlock the front gate during the day to allow locals to walk through to the beach. Renters have a key to drive in and park under the awning. We use water from the arroyo for the house, bottled water is used for the drinking water. The beach can be rocky after summer storms, we have a recylcling net on the beach, Casa Simpatico does its best to maintain it, but its not perfect. The arroyo also can vary in depth, but is always great to swim in the clear cool water.

      Casa Carolina is newly built with both authentic Mexican details and modern amenities to ensure a comfortable Mexican experience. It is situated on a large hillside lot which affords beautiful ocean, town and mountain views from all three levels, including a roof top terrace. The main level has a large well equipped kitchen with island for indoor dining, living room, and 1/2 bath. There is also an outdoor dining /lounging area on the front covered terrace. The lower level has two large bedrooms, both with queen beds and clothing storage, and a bathroom with large tiled shower and washer and dryer for in-house laundry. There are ceiling fans in the kitchen and living and in both bedrooms. The main level of the garden has a private pool and many places to sit and enjoy the many flowering plants and fruit trees. The villa is well off the main road with covered parking for one or two vehicles. An English and Spanish speaking manager lives very close and will be happy to get you settled in and give you helpful suggestions for the many places to see and lots of things to do. It's a short 5 - 7 min walk down a cobblestone street (bring good walking shoes) to the oceanside malecon where turning left takes you to the quaint fishing village of Aticama where you can purchase groceries and/or any supplies you might need. If you feel like dining out there are many restaurants throughout the village, but remember, this is real Mexico so bring your translator app or a Spanish/English dictionary so you know what you are ordering!! The people are very friendly and will help you in any way they can, but very little English is spoken. A short drive back along Playa los Cocos is Casa Manana, a hotel with a restaurant where English is spoken and delicious margaritas are served!! Turning right on the malecon brings you to 7kms of gorgeous beach along which you will find beach front restaurants, palapas to sip your cool drinks under, a newly built pier and kilometer stretch of malecon filled with fun things for kids. A 15 min drive north of Aticama is San Blas which is a larger village where you can access ATMs and a wider variety of shopping and restaurants, also a historic sight well worth seeing. Along the way to San Blas is a boat tour through the mangroves, a new birdwatching platform, as well as opportunities to purchase freshly baked banana, coconut, or pineapple bread and fresh fruit on the roadside. There are buses or taxis to bring you the 80 miles from Puerto Vallarta but renting a car is the best way to take advantage of all the things to do in the area. All of the main roads are paved and very well maintained. Come and enjoy the peace and tranquility of being away from the busy tourist areas in beautiful Aticama!!

High ceilings, eclectic art, antiques and a funky furniture collection create a distinct and unique retreat for artists, birders and writers alike. The oceanfront location--set 100 feet/30 meters above the coast provides splendid, clear views of the Pacific coastline and swimmer-friendly local Matanchen Beach with its charming palm thatched ramadas for shady seaside dining. Guests can either drive or make an easy 10 minute walk to the beach to enjoy for deliciously fresh catch of the day, cold drinks and breezy relaxation. Located in Aticama, Nayarit, a quaint and friendly village, pop. 2,000 just off the beaten tourist track and a great getaway in authentic, old world Mexico. This rental is ideal for birders, writers, a girls' getaway, or for romance and renewal. Not suitable for small children as the pool is not enclosed and the steep height along cliff edge is not child proof. The home's setting is backed by a one-acre, organic mango orchard, and tropical garden of bananas, pineapples, star fruit/carambola and other exotic fruits and palms. The multi-story house is open air in design with numerous screened windows that catch the sea breeze and highlight the views. Plenty of outdoor living space for relaxation, meditation or entertainment including a small pool, lanai, lounge chairs, a tree shaded patio and covered terraces on each floor--all with 180-degree views of Matanchen Bay and coastline. The upper-most terrace offers a pair of hammocks to enjoy 360-degree views of the ocean, jungle clad mountains, beach and surrounding countryside. Spacious, comfortable and eclectically furnished, the house sleeps up to five adults and offers two full bathrooms with additional outdoor shower available for after the beach, as well as poolside. Enjoy the peace of mind and convenience of purified drinking water from every tap with an in-house Ultra-Violet water purification system, four, high bar stools for sitting round the kitchen's wood island, a gas range, electric coffee maker, toaster, waffle iron, blender and assorted and essential cooking utensils.

Weekly maid service included for week long stays or more, additional cleaning days and meal preparation are an option. Grocery stocking service is available with advance notice, please inquire with owner. The gated property grounds are approximately one and half acres and full of bird activity. The garden surrounding the house is lush with tropical plants and palms--at times intoxicatingly fragrant with scented jasmine, white ginger, mock orange and golden chalice vine. Guests enjoy tropical fruit straight from the garden including banana, pineapple, papaya, guava, lime, avocado (Nov/Dec), mango (May/June/July), passion fruit, starfruit/carambola. A small house library, dominoes, and board games e.g. Scrabble, chess set, puzzles, playing cards and more for entertainment. With no TV, the "real world" cannot intrude on this idyllic setting. Evening time is magical with owl hoots and fireflies brightening the night, a full moonrise over the mountains, or its silvery reflection as it sinks over the dark ocean. At Casa Babina, celestial drama plays out like theatre, guests enjoy rose hued sunsets, perhaps glimpsing "the green flash" at sunset. Star gazing and bird watching are both excellent. Activities nearby include beach swimming, strolling, fishing, surfing, hiking, trek to El Cora waterfall, shell collecting or simply a good book in the hammock. Aticama's Cultural Center comprises an art gallery, public library with WiFi and movies to lend. Each Sunday morning during the tourist season from mid-November to April, a lively market or tianguis is held in the courtyard of the Cultural Center, where locals and visitors gather weekly for fresh homemade food, local, shade grown coffee, fresh fruits and vegetables, tropical plants and flowers, handicrafts and secondhand goods. The Aticama Community Museum displays a collection of indigenous artifacts found in or around the Matanchen area, it is also home to the free monthly spay/neuter clinic for cats and dogs providing a wonderful community service for the Matanchen area. Summertime in the tropics (July-Sept) is humid and green, it's also mango harvest time and monsoon season with fantastic thunderstorms mostly at night, inquire about our special green and shoulder season rates. September is customarily big surf season.

      Situated 80 miles or a two-hour drive north of the Puerto Vallarta airport, the small 1000-person fishing village of Aticama is located just off the beaten tourist track. Aticama is known for its tranquility, charm, and beautiful sunsets. The beaches are uncrowded with panoramic vistas of the majestic Pacific Ocean and tropical jungle that surround the village. If you like small town atmosphere and the appeal of beaches that seem to be 'all of your own,' treat yourself to a vacation at Casa Sorrento. Suitable for artists, plant enthusiasts, birdwatchers, surfers, and hikers this lovely home on its quiet hillside setting presents wonderful Pacific coast views to the south and the Sierra Madre foothills to the east. Enjoy morning coffee or exercises on the palapa-covered, roof-top terrace at sunrise. The terrace offers a shady outdoor living area to view the sweeping tropical landscape and village below.

      BEFORE BOOKING PLEASE READ THE BULLET POINTS BELOW DESCRIPTION Aticama really is a hidden treasure off the beaten path designed for those who are adventurous at heart and yearn for a truly meaningful vacation. Perfect for artists and writers or for those who just want some quiet time to contemplate or enjoy this beautiful garden state. Casa Karina is located just above the town of Aticama, on a bluff overlooking the Pacific. It is a private, quiet oasis set in a garden of palm trees with a green jungle surrounding it. While at Casa Karina you can dine inside or out on the patio tables al fresco while enjoying the view of the ocean and the garden tended to by our lovely housekeeper. In or out you always have the soothing sounds of the water in the background. Matanchen beach is about 10 minutes by car. Unspoiled by tourists but spotted with friendly beach restaurants it has wide sandy beach and shallow water perfect for swimming. Just fifteen minutes away by bus or car is the Historic town of San Blas as well as the famous La Tavora mangrove boat trip which takes you through the jungle filled with flora, fauna and most exciting, crocodiles. The local hotel does sightseeing trips if that's of interest and there is always a willing captain willing to take you out to some of the best fishing anywhere on the coast. Or you could plan your own itinerary of waterfall hikes, trips to a coffee plantation, road trip to the capitol city of Tepic or a visit to the release location of sea turtles. If you are tired of the tourists, timeshare salesmen, souvenir hawkers, and high prices of other destinations come see us and experience Mexico at a cheaper, more leisurely, more enjoyable pace. After a few days at Casa Karina and our little town of Aticama you'll understand why we call it Ati-Coma. It helps melt away the stress, hustle and bustle that is so much of our every day lives at home. Come to a more mellow place to recharge your batteries and enjoy a slower pace of life. The good life! ATICAMA IS BEST SUITED TO SEASONED, ADVENTUROUS TRAVELERS November, 2015: We do our very best to make Casa Karina as comfortable as possible but this a tropical climate which reeks havoc on hard and soft goods which have to be repaired or replaced fairly often and is an ongoing endeavor. We have just repaired the water, power, septic, painted the interior. Bought a new fridge, microwave, coffee pot, blender, hammock, 6 burner stove, pillows and fans for our guest’s comfort. With that said this is a very peaceful, albeit rural part of Mexico and we want to set the right expectations for our potential guests. We have several caretakers in the area while you’re visiting but the bullet points below are things to keep in mind so you can make an educated decision. • Who do I call if I need something?: This has always been our biggest challenge in this area. But we now have our local handyman/contractor Jason (on hand for emergency repairs), and our Mexican housekeeper Paty (cleaning, water, gas, garbage), and Donna who often serves as our guests translator (as a favor to Casa Karina). • How does it compare to Cabo or Puerto Vallarta?: It doesn’t. This isn’t a resort town, this is real Mexico and your stay here will be very much like living, for a short time, in a community of family who welcome visitors as friends they’ve never met. It’s called the garden state because of the green jungle, wildflowers and butterflies that flourish here and, there is some tourism but this is a working fishing and agricultural village. You’ll be sharing that uncrowded beach with a family, here and there, who’ve taken the day off to have a family picnic or fresh fish lunch. • Wi-Fi: It’s available at the local library, restaurants in San Blas and the restaurant at Casa Manana, down the road. Tip: download movies, shows and music before you arrive to enjoy while you’re here. • Beaches: About 10 minutes or less by car via the beachfront street that runs below the house or along the curving road to San Blas. Matanchen beach is very wide and shallow making it a great swimming beach. There are palapas (shaded palm shelters) all along the beach and if you’re in front of a restaurant they’ll serve you while you enjoy the surf and sand. My favorite is El Paraiso. The second restaurant as you enter the beach from Aticama. • Groceries: Mexicans shop the fish, fruit and vegetables stands and markets daily. There are no big grocery stores in Aticama. We may be able to find someone to stock the house before you’re arrival if you are interested, for a fee. Otherwise my recommendation if you’re coming from Puerto Vallarta is to stop at one of the many mega stores there on your way north, Mexican or American. Purchase one or two Styrofoam ice chests and do a major grocery run. Don’t forget ice. We have excellent coffee here in town, picked locally. And at the mini marts you’ll find milk, bread, cheese beer etc… but not a big wine selection, or olive oil, balsamic vinegar and other very non-Mexican items. Tip: there is a good liquor store that has several options of wine next to the Social Club across from the plaza in San Blas. • Restaurants: Again this is a fishing village. There are taco stands, Lucy’s, the Mexican diner, Casa Manana hotel bar/restaurant, the take out chicken shop and all the fresh fish and shrimp you’d ever want to eat in Aticama. There’s the San Blas Social Club, Red Witch and Garza Canela in San Blas for variety but overall not a lot of actual restaurants. • ATM’s: There are at least 4 in San Blas. • A car is essential: Again this is a rural area. So if you are in great shape and don’t mind walking up and down hills in the heat or to the beach, great. If not then a rental car is really the only way to enjoy everything this area has to offer. There are local buses that run every 20 minutes but again this is for energetic, heat resistant types. • There are geckos: They’re really cool and eat a ton of bugs and you’ll never see them on the floor, only on ceilings. But these little mascots live both in and outside of homes here. Mosquitos and no see ums are only a challenge in the hot, rainy season between June-October and at twilight and dusk and only outside. Casa Karina does have screens and bug spray always helps. • We do not have an egg slicer: Or other fancy kitchen gadgets except those listed above. We try to have wine glasses on hand at all times but they break on the tile floors. We have plenty of glasses, dishes, etc… This weather is tough on knives and pots and pans but the kitchen does have them even if they’re not the fanciest. • Drinking water: There should be at least 2-3, 5-gallon jugs when you arrive and if you need more just ask our caretaker. We cook only with purified bottled water and use a drop of iodine, designed for water purification, when cleaning fruits and vegetables, which we place in a bowl of tap water. • Gas and electric: There are two gas tanks for the house so there should be one full one for your use and a spare. The stove and water heater are gas. The water heater is temperamental but if it does go out you can reach out to my caretaker to get it lit. • Locals: There is a nice sized, active community of Americans and Canadians who run the museum, spay and neuter clinic, cultural center and library, where there’s a Sunday market from November through April. The locals are used to visitors and are very friendly and helpful even if they don’t speak English and you don’t speak Spanish. A smile and an attempt to communicate is always appreciated. • Safety: This is a small tight knit community where violent crime is extremely rare and you see multitudes of children happily playing outside. But petty theft has always been a nuisance in Mexico, which is why people have privacy gates and security windows. Common sense stuff like not leaving bags or purses in plain sight in your car or leaving the house doors open when you’re gone is really the only things to avoid. Tip: We do have a locking closet if you do bring valuable items like electronics that you’d like to store away. • What if I want to barbecue?: Again, we replace things ALL the time. Sometimes we may have a barbecue, sometimes, they’ll rust and fall apart in the off-season. Same thing for anything made of cloth or plastic or glass. We are forever buying new hammocks and beach chairs, pillows, fans etc. Right now there’s not a barbecue but there are newer beach chairs and a lovely hammock, a half a dozen margherita glasses but only 3 wine glasses. Cest la vie. • What do you provide?: Sheets, regular and beach towels, clean drinking water, pots/pans, dishes, dish soap, toilet paper, paper towels. And of course fans, indoor/outdoor furniture, including comfortable beds. Everything else is up in the air depending on when you come, besides what’s mentioned above for the 2015, season. Salt and sugar? The humidity means that they don’t last long? Cooking oil/coffee? I’m leaving some now but typically only if the previous guest picked some up. Anything that is in the kitchen is available for your use. I ask the housekeeper only to clear out perishable items and to leave non perishables for the next guest. • Monteczuemas revenge: You can pick it up in even the fanciest of resort towns. Tip: Buy the highest count of pure, (not a probiotic combination), acidophilus at home a week before your trip and take 1 twice a day, every day including while you’re here. Gives you an iron stomach that will allow you to enjoy the wonderful seafood, fresh fruits and vegetables without the stress. Trust me, it works! Keywords: Vacation Home
