Description of the vacation home rental
"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

Playa Las Tortugas is a planned residential community situated on an eight kilometer stretch of undeveloped beach. The homes are nestled among standing palms with unsurpassed views and access to the beach and ocean.

We love it because it is an unspoiled, non-commercial paradise. You can find our house approximately one and a half hours north of Puerto Vallarta on the Riviera Nayarit.

Our Non-Smoking property adjoins a saltwater estuary that is an amazing place to play, swim, and explore. The bird life is phenomenal. There is also a turtle sanctuary on the beach. During certain times of the year the turtles are laying eggs and hatchlings are protected and released into the sea.

If your idea of a vacation is peace and quite in an environment rich in natural beauty and serenity then look no further.

Villa Puesta del Sol is a charming villa offering all the amenities of home. Just steps from the pool and 150 feet from the beach every thing you need is just a moment from your door step. Transportation and meal plans can be arranged.

Imagine a place where you have no noise from automobiles or airplanes, no residual light from population centers. The sounds of the ocean and a sky so brilliant that it seems you can touch the stars.

Spend your days walking on the beach, sun tanning, kayaking, buggy boarding, surfing, or just sitting by the pool with a cool drink. And talk about a great place for kids. Put on the sunscreen and it 's off to the beach. It is amazing how much enjoyment the beach can provide.

We have seen all advertisements for tropical paradises and I can say from all the years we have traveled the world, that Playa Las Tortugas is as good as it gets.

Please contact us with any questions or information you may have. We look forward to sharing our little piece of heaven with you, your family, and friends.

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 warm 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 (PVR) 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.

"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

âI 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 mangrovesâwhere I spend a glorious afternoon in a canoe, spotting roseate spoonbills and great blue herons,among other bird speciesâthis property demonstrates the value of conscientious development.â Alaska Airlines Magazine

âA residential development dedicated to environmentally conscious livingâ. ~ Robb Report Vacation Homes

"Playa Las Tortugas is a small, environmentally aware residential community that features rental options on a handful of the striking properties, which range in size from 1,600 to 3,400-square feet, built on what was once a coconut plantation ... " Coast

âI've been in search of the perfect beach since I first saw the ocean decades ago. Now I've found it.â The Washington Post

"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.
