About the area

Los Ayala, Nayarit, Mexico is a quiet Mexican Village positioned on latitude 21 (the same latitude as Hawaii).It is right next door to Rincon de Guayabitos and La Pinita. Public bus (van) transportation runs regularly between each throughout the day for 9 pesos per person. Los Ayala has a one mile long sand beach located on Jaltemba Bay. Some days there are "boogie board" waves, otherwise the waves are gently rolling. Sunbathing (privately at your own pool or on the beach), swimming or beach walking to bars, restaurants or internet cafe are most popular. Shopping in Los Ayala or at nearby Rincon de Guayabitos or La Pinita is also a highpoint. Deep sea fishing for Mahi Mahi(Dorado) with local fishermen is available (great time for entire family to ride along and whale watch, see giant sea turtles, huge stingrays and many dolphins). La Pinita has bus service stops of Pacifico and Primus Bus Systems that connect to Puerto Villarta, Guadalahara and throughout Mexico. Site of over 100 ancient 2,000 year petroglyphs is within 10 miles of driving.

Third time renting this house . We love the location and the space . You can find everything you need in this little town. Martin the caretaker is very friendly and helpful. The only thing that could make it better would be pool to be heated and better wifi connection. We will be back !!! Great place for 2 small families to share !

The house is just as Gary posts - it's roomy, clean, safe and wonderful location. Loved going to the loggia or top veranda every morning to have my coffee and enjoy the view! Depending on time of day my son would choose between frolicking on the beach or enjoying the pool.

“Awesome house on the beach”

Reviewed 7 May 2014

My wife and I stayed here with my 2 and 7 year old children and our 2 friends and their 1,2 and 9 year old kids. There was plenty of room for all of us and we had a blast. The pool was a lifesaver for the kids and the ocean was just a few steps away. I snorkeled around the rocky point and fished from the shore every morning and night. When we got to the house, there was only a sponge, one bottle of drinking water and one roll of toilet paper in each of the 4 bathrooms, so you will need to buy dish soap, spices, additional water, laundry detergent, dishwashing detergent and other items that you might assume will come with renting this house. Also the gas BBQ is broken......Other than those minor surprises, the house is a dream! The town of Los Ayala is very small and cute with a few tiny restaurants and a several small 7-11 size grocery stores where you can buy the staples. Martin, the caretaker, is very nice and came by the house every few days to see how everything was doing. He also took me and my family up to San Blas to check out the castles and crocodiles, which was awesome!

“Great Time at beach house”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2014

We had a wonderful time at the property. The owners house is right next door and he happened to be there as well while we were. We had a great time with him and his family. Martin, the caretaker, does a wonderful job ensuring that everything is perfect. We couldn't have ask for a more gracious host. I would recommend the property to anyone looking for a quit, relaxing place. The beach is wonderful. There are lots of restaurants and stores within walking distance so we didn't feel that we were in too remote of an area. The one hour drive to the property from the airport is a pretty drive.

“Los Ayala, Mexico”

Reviewed 6 Jan 2012

We had a wonderful experience in Los Ayala. The house and location was perfect, clean , well cared for, and Carlos the on site manager was very helpful. The house was well supplied. The location was fairly private at the end of the beach even during a Christmas holiday with many vacationing Mexican families. Cell phone reception was a little spotty,but available. We highly recommend.

“an authentic aosis”

Reviewed 31 Jan 2011

my family spent seven nights in this little town. Very quiet very secure. the Caretaker Carlos is a godsent. Clean home. Carlos took care of the property every morning and made sure we were wanting of nothing. Great choice in employee gary. The town was very small and very authentic. you hear the ocean and it's wonderful. Not to loud. I would recomend this place to anyone wanting a little get away from it all. Beaches were heaven spent all my time out in the waves. just steps from the house. a real find in the middle of no where....
