Description of the vacation home rental
Casa Las Olas is our "House of the Waves", the newest beachfront villa at Playa Las Tortugas, completed in March 2007. It sits just steps away from the warm sand and water of the blue Pacific Ocean.

"The next morning, about 15 miles down the coast, I find my Shangri-La, the place I could recommend without reservation or caveat. I almost miss it as I vacillate about whether to follow a dirt road because of a sign that simply states Playa Las Tortugas." The Washington Post

With its comfortable tropical climate and great view of the coconut palm-lined beach, surfing, boogie-boarding, kayaking, and other beach activities, it's the perfect place for your vacation getaway.

The colorful sunsets are truly indescribable, and best enjoyed by taking the short winding path from our front terrace a few steps out to the lovely authentic, thatched roof, beachfront palapa.

Our palapa is also great for dining or simply for sipping your favorite beverage at ocean 's edge, watching your sand castle builders and boogie-boarders at play, or possibly have a soothing massage by a talented massage therapist.

Casa Las Olas sleeps six persons, in three luxurious air conditioned bedrooms with comfortable king sized beds and ample closet space. Each bedroom suite includes a private bath and walk in shower, with custom stone sinks, hand-made talavera tile, high-quality fixtures and hand-crafted shell mirrors.

For those who love to cook, our gourmet kitchen has everything the discerning chef requires in order to turn the wonderful foods of Mexico into meals to remember. For those who prefer, our wonderful cooks will prepare you authentic traditional meals.

When you wake up in the morning to the sound of the waves, there 's a treat in store for you right out the terrace doors of our master bedroom.

Area Info
Our entire state of Nayarit area enjoys one of the most favorable climates in the world. Average daily year-round temperatures range from highs of 80-85 degrees (perfect beach weather) to lows of 60-70 degrees (perfect sleeping weather). Swim year round, but consider packing a light sweater for the evenings in the winter months. Rain, when it falls, generally occurs between June and September as night-time or pre-dawn thundershowers.

You can visit small typical Mexican villages, enjoy fresh fish and other local seafood at small rustic beachfront restaurants, tour a tropical river and waterfalls, see historic San Blas, and drive up through the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountains to colonial Tepic where crafts of the Huichol Indians are found.

Playa Las Tortugas has kilometers of uncrowded, clean sand beach, and a number of activities both on property and nearby such as Surfing, Wave Kayaking, Boogie Boarding, Fishing, and Shelling, Canoeing, Whale Watching, Bird Watching, Walking or Running on Miles of Sand Beach, and Sea Turtle Conservation activities (during season) at the Sea Turtle Conservation Camp.

Frequently there is one festival or another in small towns within an hour of our location. There are a number of excursions you might take, with or without a guide.

Playa Las Tortugas is located on a section of coastline which is nesting habitat of several species of sea turtle in the beautiful state of Nayarit, Mexico 70 miles north of the Puerto Vallarta (PVR) International Airport and about 50 miles west of Tepic, the colonial capital of Nayarit.

We are happy to arrange transportation for you in our private shuttle, you may rent a car and drive your self which a large number of our guests do, or if you'd like to be more adventurous you may decide to come by bus and local taxi. We can send you details on the numerous car rental companies, or instructions on which buses and local taxis to take including approximate costs.

It's quite easy to find your way from the Puerto Vallarta International Airport to Playa Las Tortugas, and the roads are normally well-maintained. Your valid driver's license is accepted in Mexico, and the driving rules are virtually the same as most countries. Write us for a copy of detailed driving instructions and a map. Your scenic drive north from the airport takes less than 2 hours and goes through areas of old-growth jungle and coastal hills.

Guestbook

It's an idyllic spot for eco-loving families, located at the end of 11 miles of pristine white-sand beach, between the beach and an 1,100-acre salt-water tidal estuary that's home to more than two dozen species of birds including herons, egrets, pelicans, and storks. The Sunday Republican, Springfield, MA.

The next morning, about 15 miles down the coast, I find my Shangri-La, the place I could recommend without reservation or caveat. I almost miss it as I vacillate about whether to follow a dirt road because of a sign that simply states Playa Las Tortugas. The Washington Post

I have the privilege of experiencing a working sea-turtle camp firsthand because I am staying at Playa Las Tortugas, a charming, ecologically minded property on an otherwise uninhabited stretch of pristine beach. Next to a tidal estuary lined with mangroves, where I spend a glorious afternoon in a canoe, spotting roseate spoonbills and great blue herons,among other bird species, this property demonstrates the value of conscientious development.
