The community is heartwarming, and you can find local and cultural fresh foods prepared just for you there.
I will send you maps and planing details to help guide you for a once in a life time vacation.
Please note that Quimixto is more or less a rustic setting and takes some physical abilities to get around village, as everyone walks (or rides a horse). There is a clean fresh water creek that divides the town in half, it is never too deep to cross by foot. Navigational, and baggage assistance available. (This creek and meandering streamlet to the ocean is a bird watchers paradise.)
Bright and light, clean and pretty, two private bedrooms w/bathrooms. Fully equipped kitchen, fishing gear, sand toys, boogie board (movies) makes it a beach home away from home.
Bancos in living area provide additional sleeping options in a pinch. Relax in the hammock or in porch chairs under the large expansive porch.
Beautiful common area, set between the two bedrooms.
Sunny and delightful ~ Inspiration and relaxation is here to be found. House has large windows and glass doors so one can see straight out underneath our coconut trees to Puerto Vallarta, passing ferries, cruiseships, pirate ships, and the Marrieta Islands! Whale and dolphin watch from the kitchen table. Super sweet. Spectacular stunning views.
One acre property completely fenced. Beach right there. SIGHTSEE right from the house whales, dolphins, sailboats, and cruise ships off in the distance.
In the peak season, there are vendors selling ceviche, fresh fruits, fish, coconuts, and the fresh pies the south bay villages are known for. Many possible day trips.
