Ocean paradise!!

The hidden jewel of the Costa Alegre!!

Please email for availability

The magic of this ocean paradise welcomes you at these unheard of low prices for off season and regular prices for high season.

Casa Shanti Del Mar (house of peace on the beach) is located on the beautiful Costa Alegre, 'happy coast', that is part of the Mexican riviera,

In the quiet fishing village of La Manzanilla in the state of Jalisco, Mexico. Charming 1-bedroom fully equipped bungalow accommodates up to 4 guests, so its perfect for couples and families alike. As you lay down at night on one of the memory foam beds, made for your comfort, you will be lulled to sleep by the ocean surf and awake so refreshed it will amaze you.

Our casa is a delightful, new vacation rental right on an exquisite sandy beach waiting for you and your ideal, get-away-from-it-all Mexican vacation.

La Manzanilla is located on the bay of Tenacatita surrounded by mountains and lush jungle foliage. The average temperature is 82-85 degrees and the water temperature is usually about 78-82 degrees.

The beaches of Mexico are beautiful, and the five miles of walking beach of La Manzanilla is exquisite and lives up to that statement. The miles of flat, sandy beach are excellent for short and long strolls as you comb for sea shell and ocean treasures. The bay protects the beach from the open ocean and the surf is mild, safe and people friendly.

Step from your door onto the beach sand and into the warm ocean water as your adventure begins. La Manzanilla is the best kept secret and the people who find this paradise come back year after year to enjoy the magic and beauty that are here for you. You will enjoy your life in paradise as the “secret” of La Manz unravels for you.

After your day in the surf and sun upon returning you are greeted at the beach gate by the 'Buddha' shower to wash your sand away. Come into your cool and bright bungalow, which reflects the tropical location, and you will feel like you are in a secluded paradise the moment you step through the door. The casa has been appointed with pristine detail for your pleasure. Outside, on your deck, you can lounge on the patio chairs or nap lazily in the hammock. You have two private patios to enjoy or use the beach furniture and umbrella’s to enjoy sitting on the sand with the surf lapping at your toes. Blend yourself a margarita and enjoy your afternoon, let the surf wash over you and enjoy the day.

If you feel like cooking you have a fully equipped kitchen or relax and maybe prepare delicious tapas. As the evening approaches, and you don’t want to cook, go out and enjoying an evening dinner under the stars at one of the 45 local restaurants which are all within an easy 5 mile walk from your bungalow. Want to stay home but not cook? A maid/cook can be arranged to come in and take care all of your needs.

Even though you may want to spend the majority of your Mexican vacation beach combing or sunbathing, you’ll quickly find that the area is teeming with all sorts of fun activities. There are fantastic opportunities for snorkeling, scuba diving, boating, para sailing, banana boat rides, bogie boarding, jet skis, paddle boards, kayaking and surf fishing.

And don’t forget to go on the mangrove tour and see the hundreds of alligators and birds in the lagoon sanctuary --

Or hire one of locals and go on a land or ocean tour. One of the locals will take you fishing bring you back to the sandy beach with an open fire and roast the fish for your family and friends to come and enjoy. This will include a full course dinner as well as drinks. A wonderful way to end the day and fill everyone in on the adventure you had while you were deep sea fishing.

If you want to spend a little more time on land you’ll find great places for hiking in the lush jungle foliage, or hiking to the waterfalls, biking, renting mopeds and world-class golf.

Or enjoy relaxing under your umbrella on the pristine sand on the most marvelous beach in Mexico while you watch the dolphins play and the occasional whales. Watching the local fishermen fish from the shore is an amazing treat and as they reel, by hand without a pole, as they pull the catch in you will get caught up in the excitement. They will sell the fresh fish to you for very little and you can cook up the catch of the day or take it to one of the local restaurants to cook and serve dinner to you

Oh, did I mention the spas, well they are wonderful and you have many services and gifted persons to fill all your needs. From a beach massage to the full spa treatment. How about yoga on the beach? There is so much to choose from you will have to pick the activities that most suite you for the time you will be in paradise.

Don’t forget the incredible views across the bay, the diving pelicans and cormorants, large sailboats coming and going, and the beautiful sunsets! And the nights – with the stars so brightly shinning and the dark sky so amazing you will see what the magic of La Manzanilla can be for you. Your ideal, get-away-from-it-all Mexican riviera vacation awaits!

Location: 130 kilometers (approx 75 miles) south of Puertovallarta and just 40 minutes north of the Manzanillo airport is the quiet fishing village of La Manzanilla, located in the Mexican riviera on a beautiful bay, which is surrounded by lush jungle foliage. With a population of approximately 2,000 inhabitants and a local tourist attraction of well-fed American crocodiles (living in a nearby nature sanctuary), it’s the perfect place to go if you really want to get away from it all…

We look forward to your coming and enjoying a magical time on the beautiful ocean beach of La Manzanilla. Washington post wrote it up as being the next Mexican riviera.
