Alegria at Casa Pacifico in La Penita is a 30 minute drive north of Sayulita on the beautiful Riviera Nayarit coastline. Tired of the "walk to the beach" descriptions that are really several miles away? (I suppose I could walk to New York if I really wanted to!) This is a true walk to the beach property, located half a block from the beach - 100 steps (a few more if you're short!). Very calm beach at the northern end of Jaltemba Bay. La Penita is a true Mexican village slightly off the beaten track.
Welcome to Casa Pacífico in beautiful La Penita, Nayarit, Mexico. The property itself consists of two units surrounding a shared pool and garden.
Casa de la Alegría is a two bedroom, one bath unit with A/C in the bedrooms and accommodates 4 guests. Sit outside in the garden right outside your door for morning coffee, or in the evening, take the stairs to your roof at sunset, while you listen to the waves and catch the ocean breezes. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to be here during one of the many meteor showers! This casita is a detached unit, separate from the main house, and adjacent to the pool. A full kitchen in each unit 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.
All linens and towels are supplied (including beach towels). Beach chairs and umbrellas also available for guests. 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. Restaurants and shops a few blocks away either through town or a short walk down the beach. Close enough for convenience and all supplies, far enough away to be private and "non-touristy".
A short walk down the beach will take you to cafes and restaurants in minutes. Or you can purchase delicious tamales and tortillas from the street vendors and shops in the neighborhood.
It's a short drive or cab ride to all the activities you may want, such as zip-lining, jet ski rentals, surfing, mountain villages, Compostela and Tepic, or even Puerto Vallarta if you need a high-end shopping fix. Be sure not to miss the local markets! Thursdays in La Penita year round, seasonally - Mondays in Guayabitos, Fridays in Sayulita, Saturdays in Lo de Marcos, Sundays in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle. Fresh produce, pastries, candied nuts and coffee as well as local artists displaying their creations - weaving, jewelry, Huichol art and more! This 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, markets, ruins, hot springs, volcanos, and miles and miles of beach.
You can easily explore the other towns in the area - Sayulita, 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. If you are looking for a posh resort with non stop entertainment, this is probably not the place for you. If, however, you are looking for a place to kick back and relax, away from the frenzied resorts, bask in the sun at either the beach or by the pool, and drink in the authentic culture, this is definitely your vacation spot.
