Welcome to Casa Pacífico in beautiful Nayarit, Mexico. This unit (Casa de Sonrisas) is one of two on the property.

Tired of the "walk to everything" descriptions? I could walk across the country if I really wanted to. This property is truly a walk-to-the-beach home. Stand in the street in front of the house, turn to your right, and the Pacific Ocean beckons you -- 100 steps away. In addition, there are several cafes in the neighborhood as well as small markets. 6 blocks will take you to the center of La Penita where you will find shops, markets, banks, restaurants and bars - just about anything you need.

The home itself is a one bedroom with a queen bed, one bathroom unit with a great private terrace. Sit outside in the morning for coffee, or in the evening to watch the sunset while listening to the waves and catching the ocean breezes. Private entrance to your second floor home! A full kitchen allows you to eat in whenever you like but you are still close enough to town to head in to one of the outstanding cafes and restaurants. A short walk down the beach will take you there in minutes. Or purchase tamales and tortillas from the street vendors in the neighborhood.

A large bathroom, built-in wardrobe, and a roomy living space make Casa de Sonrisas the perfect home base while you explore all that Riviera Nayarit has to offer: colonial buildings in nearby towns, surfing in Sayulita, jet-skiing, mountain drives, ancient ruins, hot springs, volcanos, markets, and miles and miles of beach. You can easily explore the nearby towns in the area - San Pancho, Rincon de Guaybitos, Los Ayala, and Lo de Marcos. You will be about an hour from Playa las Tortugas and the turtle camp there. San Blas is another hour beyond.

All linens and towels are supplied (including beach towels). I have tried to equip the home with everything you will need - basic spices, cooking oil, bottled water, etc.) but if there is anything else you require, just ask. The property has two rental units as well as the owner's home. They all share a courtyard and garden as well as a pool. Beach chairs, beach towels, umbrella also provided for guests. Coolers available if needed.

I am located in Colonia Pescadores in La Penita. This is an authentic Mexican village, not a flashy resort town. It is a quiet, laid-back neighborhood with a true flavor of Mexico. The street is a mix of homes, small local businesses, a few hotels/rentals, a school across the street, and lovely neighbors!

I live on the property. I will leave you to your privacy, but if you need anything, you only need to ask.

I'm a native of Colorado but have traveled all over the world. I keep returning to Mexico. I usually stay in rental homes, and decided I needed one of my own. After a career in an office, the openness of the beach and the Pacific appealed to me. When I retired, I chose La Penita as my new home.

I love Mexico, its people and culture, and its climate. I look out at the Pacific every time I leave the house. What's not to love? I wanted a place that was close to an international airport for the convenience for family and friends, but far enough away to be out of the frenzy of the tourist areas. My neighborhood is a slice of Mexican life - families, businesses, a school, recreation, great neighbors - and I am in the middle of it, drinking in all that La Penita has to offer.
