The NeighborhoodLa Peñita de Jaltemba, Nayarit, Mexico, commonly called La Peñita, is a small beach town on Jaltemba Bay with approximately 8000 inhabitants. It's located 64 kilometers north of Puerto Vallarta on Mexico Highway 200. The surrounding area is noted for pineapple, banana, mango and other fruit production. The main street, or "La Avenida" as it is known runs east - west from the highway to the beach and has a central boulevard lined with palm trees and benches. A number of tourist shops, clothing stores, shoe stores, restaurants and other merchants run up and down the street. Two blocks south of the beach end of La Avenida there is a large shady plaza. Each Thursday a 4 block long street market ( Tiangui) takes place in La Penita. This market is a must see with everything from fresh fruit, seafood, vegetables to housewares, hardware, clothing and arts and crafts. The colors and smells provide a carnival atmoshphere! It is considered by some to be the service community for the busy resort of Rincón de Guayabitos immediately to the south. The two communities are separated only by a narrow river. Rincón de Guayabitos is a community of hotels, bunaglows, small tourist shops and restaurants, while La Peñita provides banking services, grocery stores, vegetable markets as well as public facilities such as the library and post offices. In La Penita at the east end of La Avenida, where it meets Highway 200, the Rincón-La Penita-Rincón shuttle system is available to transport you between the communities for a few pesos.

The SpaceLa Penita de Jaltemba is located just north of Rincon de Guayabitos, a lovely but more "touristy" town which has a 5 mile-long and quite wide sandy fabulous beach, often quite deserted at our end! We enjoy watching fishing boats laden with fresh catches every morning and make suppertime deals of fresh filets in the evening. A community with a deeply rooted devotion to the sea, La Penita embraces the world of international tourism more every day. For this reason, the town's picturesque plaza, spectacular natural wonders and cobblestone streets have been met by new establishments aimed at accommodating and pleasing visitors. The result is a quaint town that highlights the eloquent traditions of its inhabitants, devoted to life by the sea. Come and discover the town's many charms and surprises. Guest AccessThe condo is in a building with seven other condos. It is on the second floor. It is a very safe environment, with a locked door on the lower floor street entrance. Guests & residents of the other condos in the building also have access to the common area, which is a wonderful ocean view roof top terrace. Laundry is also included, on the street level. Wifi is provided in the condo. Interaction with GuestsThe guests may interact with other residents that may be vacationing at the same time as them, as much or as little as they please. The NeighborhoodOur condo is one block from the beach and a ten minute walk to downtown. There are small convenient stores and restaurants closer to the condo. The neighborhood is a very traditional Mexican neighborhood. Speaking Spanish is an asset but English is widely spoken Getting AroundTaxi & “Combies” Taxis are available downtown and it’s common to book a cab early if you’re planning a trip, say to the airport. Standard fees are 30 pesos to Guayabitos, 40 to Los Ayala and 500 to 800 to the airport. Negotiate! “Combies” are white van/taxis that go between the small towns of the area and it’s only 8 pesos per person. Get on a combi at the top of the main boulevard before the highway. You’ll get cozy with the locals in a combi… Other Things to NoteYou don't want to end up on the wrong side of the Mexican judicial system, so exercise common sense and behave accordingly...

The SpaceCasa Siestas y Olas is a colourful and welcoming home located in a quiet Mexican neighbourhood approximately one hour north of Puerto Vallarta. The house sits at the edge of an estuary, and overlooks the beach and ocean just beyond. A short stroll through the village will get you to the public footbridge across the estuary and on to the beautiful sandy beach. Guest AccessFor your use, there is a large bedroom with king sized bed, private entrance, and an en-suite bathroom with large shower. Bath towels are provided, but we ask that you bring your own beach towels. High speed internet is included. Our water is purified and UV filtered and can be enjoyed straight from the tap. Our home is open to fresh ocean breezes, and ceiling fans allow for comfortable temperatures. The large kitchen, dining and living area, as well as cozy media room, patio and garden are shared guest spaces. There are lots of areas to relax, and shady spaces for a siesta or evening drink. Interaction with GuestsWe live on the same property, so should you need anything, or have any questions, please feel free to ask. We like our guests to be comfortable and happy! The NeighborhoodOur Casa is in the area known as La Colonia, which is a sub-division of La Penita de Jaltemba. La Colonia is a small seaside community with small homes, and dusty cobbled streets where children, dogs and chickens play. There are several small grocery stores for everyday necessities, as well as butchery, pharmacy, beer store etc. The bank, doctors, dentists, and larger grocery stores can be found in La Penita; a three minute drive away by taxi or collectivo minibus. La Penita also has several restaurants and taco stands. Take a stroll through the streets of La Colonia, and discover the warm welcome of its residents. The local store keepers will help you with your Spanish while you make your purchases, and the kids in the street will greet you with a friendly ‘Hola’ as you walk by. Listen out for the local vendors, selling fresh fruits and vegetables, breads and ice cream. Here you will experience the true Mexico. Ours is not an all inclusive, resort type experience, but rather an opportunity to experience down-to-earth Mexican life. Other towns on Jaltemba Bay are Rincon de Guayabitos and Los Ayala. All can be easily reached by local taxi or collectivo minibus. Getting AroundGetting around in Mexico is easy. We have everything from local taxis, 'collectivo' minibuses, and national bus lines within easy reach. Other Things to NoteOur house is ocean front, but there is a small estuary that needs to be crossed to get to the beach. This can be done by using the public footbridge, which is a few blocks away. Or, our small boat can be used to cross the estuary to the beach. The estuary is home to crocodiles, turtles, herons, and other birds.

    Welcome to La Penita de Jaltemba! This is the mainly Mexican service town (doctors, dentists, groceries, clothing, schools...) next to Rincon de Guayabitos (more hotels, souvenir shops, more gringos but also Mexican tourists). If you like a serene beach you'll find it eight minutes on foot from the house; if you want vendors and beer on the beach, take the five minute ride to Guayabitos or 10 mins. to Los Ayala. La Penita boasts a newly completed Malecon (seawall/boardwalk) and a famous Thursday market (tianguis) known for crafts, fresh produce, housewares, cd's, clothes.... In our neighbourhood there are many residential streets to explore, some flat and some going up the hill, some leading out into the countryside. You'll hear burros and horses going by, chickens and roosters, dogs, even the occasional pig. The property is 8 minutes walk from the downtown shops and services, and little grocery stores are two minutes from the house in about 5 directions! Taxi and bus service is reliable and safe, and the region has hotsprings, a fabulous waterfall, and lots of towns to explore. Our just-completed casita (=little house) was designed so that we ourselves would want to stay in it. Both the bedroom and great room are spacious, fully furnished and equipped, and decorated with Mexican arts and crafts. The front terrace runs the whole width of the building, giving both shade and sun areas. Sitting on the top of the property's garden and terraces, their are lovely views of the ocean as well as the pool (to be shared with us). The street is unpaved and populated with extremely helpful and warm Mexican neighbours. The king-size bed has firm mattress, new pillows and linens, and its bedspread coordinates with the curtains, tones of dove grey and teal for a restful atmosphere. The bedroom has ac, although you probably won't need it, as well as a safe, double desk, 2 desk chairs of upholstered wrought iron and lots of storage space. The bathroom is in fiesta colours of light green, lavender, pink, goldenrod, with matching towels of good quality. Women will appreciate the mosaic shower bench to sit on. The open-plan kitchen of huanacaxtle wood has deep drawer, lots of counter space, pantry, full size stove and fridge, many small appliances, and has lots of space for your guests to gather. The living/dining/extra sleeping area also houses the entertainment unit and tv, If an additional bed is needed, a third person could sleep in the great room. The dining area is traditional "equipale" cowhide/wood, with a unique swag lamp. The great room balances jewel tones which are in the mosaics as well. Parking is available and laundry can be negotiated. Please, no smokers or cats. Our aging jack Russell is territorial but we could consider dogs that are discreet, non-destructive and quiet. We know how to respect your privacy and yet offer whatever assistance and information you need, and would love to share our region with you. Neighbours Chila and Ruby will clean for you (twice weekly included in rental, more can be arranged with them) and if you like tamales, enchiladas, pozole... their family runs a little weekend restaurant within a stone's throw. We've seen the children grow up; peaceful, fun-loving, and affectionate, we adore them. When you have booked, we will send you the form of waiver for liability; this must be signed as a condition of renting. Please send us your questions. the fee for utilities is an approximation depending on your usage; it could be between $50-$120. Four hours of cleaning is included in the rent, 4 hours/week. It does not include personal services such as making the bed, doing laundry or washing dishes. The fee for additional cleaning is to be paid whenever such cleaning is needed, 35 pesos/hour. Additional fees may apply: - additional cleaning | 3 CAD per day The casita perches on the upper level of our property above the gardens, looking out over streets to an ocean view. I's a mere eight minute walk to the beach or to the downtown, and minor stores that nonetheless carry all basic needs (fruits, veggies, meats, dairy,sundries) are about three minutes in a variety of directions. The street is typically Mexican, unpaved, with wonderful, helpful neighbours; they make this a safe and friendly place to be.

                  Cool and relaxing, you'll feel the calm of vacation the minute you set foot into Mar 1. This 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom condo greets you with comfort and modern day amenities. Located in Punta Esmeralda, just 5 minutes north of Bucerias, Nayarit and 5 minutes south of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. Mar 1 sits in one of the most coveted buildings on site. Step inside and follow the view from the patio to the manicured garden, to the Mar pool off to the lovely Bay of Banderas! The aquamarine theme echoes the pools and ocean, and seems to go on forever when standing on the private garden patio, its expansive view of the Bahia de Banderas is a favortie among guests. With ground floor access to manicured gardens, the ultimate infinity pool, punctuated with living palms and the serene beach just yards away, there may be few (if any) reasons to be indoors at all! The deep terrace wraps around to each of the ocean-facing master bedrooms and is adorned with outdoor furniture and an oversized sunken plunge pool and gas grill. The refreshingly contemporary furnishings were selected so as to never forget the importance of comfort – right down to the ceiling fan to keep the air circulating even on the outdoor terrace, or the 'wave' chaise lounge which shapes itself to your body, you need only recline and enjoy the view. The living and dining room feature sliding glass doors that open up entirely, combining indoor and outdoor living into one, allowing its guests o take advantage of the ocean breeze and music of the bay's crashing waves, inside or out. Each bedroom features its own private bathroom and black out shades so that you can carry the relaxation well into the morning without interruption. The master room features a comfy king size bed. Watch a movie on the flat screen TV or sit back and take in the action on the ocean, like the famous Punta Esmeralda pelicans chilling on the jetty. The second bedroom is equipped with a queen size bed, flat screen TV and ocean view, perfect for a second couple. The third bedroom is furnished with two twin beds and has a custom built business workstation, perfect to set up laptops for video calls with family at home (or to work if you must). The oversize kitchen features amenities for cooks of all levels. Meals can easily be prepared in this well-appointed kitchen, or on the terrace grill. Enjoy preparing your evening tacos or sunset margaritas from the kitchen bar that offers an expansive view through the home all the way to the sparkling lights of Puerto Vallarta beyond. Welcoming to families, couples, groups or individuals, Mar 1 in Punta Esmeralda, Bucerias is designed and furnished as a luxury vacation rental for couples and families – kid friendly but a hip getaway for couples. Punta Esmeralda is located at the north end of Bucerias, a quaint village many say looks like Puerto Vallarta some 20 years ago. Punta Esmeralda features many hotel like amenities that can tailor to any family member in the group from 8 common area pools, a spa, gym, restaurant, tennis courts, children´s play area, jogging paths, and beach volleyball courts. You will probably not want to leave the comforts of this condo, but if you do the villages of Bucerias and La Cruz de Huancaxtle are each about 5 minutes away for you to explore. Practice your Spanish and pick some colorful souvenirs for friends and family at Bucerias flea market, or pick up some fresh treats at the La Cruz artesian market. Both towns offer a variety of restaurant and street tacos options. Your only regret will be that your vacation ends too quickly!
