Playa Las Tortugas is just about 75 miles north of Puerto Vallarta on a very much undisturbed, undeveloped,
This small beachfront community of just over a dozen homes sits at the end of the road, tucked underneath the palms of a once thriving coconut plantation. Open lawns, gardens, and a centrally located pool fill the space between the villas. The sound of the waves is present throughout. Walk out to the ocean and be standing on a stretch of sandy beach that stretches for as far as you can see.
The beach stretches for about 10 miles due South. There's a bird-filled freshwater estuary/sanctuary and mango plantation bordering it to the East. The estuary river mouth wraps around the North end of the Property. Walk or swim a few feet across the water and you'll be in the small town of Platanitos. There are a number of small beachfront restaurants here. There is also another small vacation community here named Punta Custodio, and a number of expats that call this area home.
North of Platanitos the Riviera Nayarit Coast stretches along the Mantechan bay to the colonial port town of San Blas A great day trip with many options for things to do along the way: surfing, jungle cruises, waterfall hiking, Mexican ice cream stand, etc. Heading inland from our location takes you into the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains, and towards the state capital of Tepic. Heading back south towards Puerto Vallarta you'll come across the towns of Chacala, La Penita, Guyabitos, San Pancho, Sayulita, Punta MIta, and Bucerias.
