No noise but the sea, just the occasional fisherman walking by - Villa Lumina is an unbeatable tropical getaway. An eco-friendly home, Villa Lumina is the perfect choice for enjoying the beauty of nature for people with criteria and taste.

You can hire a cook to prepare all three meals and totally relax!

Villa Lumina is perfect for reunions and retreats with friends and family - enjoy our spacious living areas with comfortable sofas to chat, read and savour the beautiful views of kilometres of pure white sandy beach while listening to it’s rhythmical and relaxing waves.

Our villa is designed with a large central area covered by a vaulted palm roof that provides ample space for large groups, movement classes and of course, festive parties and events.

The spaciousness of this seaside villa allowed each of us to enjoy our vacation and truly relax! So much better than a hotel!' Shoshana Shadow USA.

'The house is a spectacular open air villa that has a simple but very elegant design that makes you feel from the moment you step onto the impressive entrance, that you are sleeping on the beach in pure luxury.

We (an anglo- american couple) built our home in Cumaná for a variety of reasons. It is an eco- condominium and all owners have to work towards preserving local flora and fauna. The beach is spectacular and the views stunning. The local cactuses provide a gorgeous contrast to the palm trees and pools, reminding us we are in Mexico :) The mountain range behind frames the view and truly makes it majestic. The homes are all carefully built and in harmony with the environment providing an incredibly attractive high-end but totally relaxed destination.

Cumaná is a beautiful condominium, located outside Puerto Escondido. It is truly paradise. Our home is located right on the beach, one of my favorite times of the day is the early morning - taking a cup of coffee and sitting and watching the birds, fish and sometimes dolphins go by. Sunset walks are a must and it is a gorgeous walk down to the lagoon towards Tomatal. I can never get enough of it!

You can also just hang out in the pool and watch the sea and the beach from there, it is truly, truly relaxing. I like nothing better to collapse in the seating area of the pool with a glass of white wine and a book, perfect!

Puerto Escondido itself is a bustling seaside town that has a lot going for it.

It has a fantastic surf scene and is home to the Mexpipe, consequently there are great opportunities for surf lessons with experienced teachers. My kids have taken them, the youngest was only 5 or 6 years old when she started. It's a wonderful way to get loads of exercise and really enjoy the sea.

There is great fishing for those who like to go out to see and many varieties of local and big fish, such as marlin and tuna can be caught here. There are several companies offering fishing trips and these can be booked on site.

You can waterski in the nearby Manialtepec lagoon and kayak there too, perfect for an afternoon trip!

If you like snorkelling there are many opportunities in Puerto's bays, one of my favourites is Manzanillo which has an amazing array of colourful fish.

Vespas and other mopeds or bikes can be rented and a couple of companies offer eco tours including horseback riding and white water rafting. In high season a company from Mexico City arrives and offers parachute jumping for the braver amongst us. Personally, I prefer going to the beach and looking for shells with the kids, or watching for dolphins!

There is a great music scene in Puerto with live music every single weekend.

I love the restaurant and bar scene in Puerto and I love to leave it and come back to our beautiful home and enjoy the sounds of nature and the sea!

There are so many different restaurants, it's amazing. Traditional Mexican food, amazing pizzas and pastas, pan asian, new Mexican, slow food, you name it, you can find it there.

The bars are too many to mention and go from the upscale to the beach disco 'el tubo' with a myriad in between. Cocktails are delicious with fresh fruit and the beers always cold. A popular option is a fresh coconut with rum added, fantastic!

If you like cooking and want to take advantage of our great bbq area, you could check out the market. Well-stocked with super fresh local fish, meats, fruit and vegetables, all delicious and inexpensive. The spices are varied and their aroma wonderful.

You could also wander down to the Marina, a slightly elegant term for the area where the fishing boats unload their wares, and buy freshly caught fish, straight from the fisherman!

All in all Cumaná and Puerto Escondido really are the perfect holiday destination. There is something for every age and kids, teens and adults love the Pacific beach vibe and all the amenities available.
