Juan and Estela's cabañas lie in a beautiful grove on a sandy bluff overlooking the beach just south of Tehualmixtle, a small fishing village about two hours' drive from Puerto Vallarta. It has no electricity--just water, a clay outdoor stove, and 'tranquilidad.' It is well off the road, so no road dust or noise--unless you count the sound of the waves. And Juan and Estela are natural hosts, deeply rooted in and knowledgeable about the land and incredibly caring and friendly.

Lo spazio
There are three cabañas at "El Buque." Each has its own bathroom with shower, toilet and sink. There is no electricity, internet or cell reception and cold water only. (But internet access is available locally.) There is an outdoor barbecue for cooking.

Of the three, Dolphin might be the best for families with small children because it is set back from the bluff.

The grove is on a small bluff just up from the beach. Two of the cabañas overlook the ocean, the other one is snuggled behind and has an ocean view. There is a trail down to the gorgeous beach. Often you will be the only person there.

By the time the dry season starts, in Mid-December or so, there are very few mosquitoes and by late January, virtually none.

Accesso per gli ospiti
You have access to your cabaña with its private bathroom and the beach as well as access to the grove itself--always being respectful of the peace and quiet of other guests.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
The cabañas provide bed linens, bath towels and soap. You supply potable water (readily available in one of the stores in Villa del Mar). Your cabin will have solar lights.

For an additional fee, Estela and Juan would rent you cooking utensils and dishes.

If you are staying for a long time, you might want to ask Juan to get you a Garafon (20 liter jug) of potable water, with delivery it costs $40 MXN (about $2 US).

Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Messico

Overview of the Area, Food, Things to Do

The cabañas are just north of Villa Del Mar and 4km south of Tehualmixtle in the Cabo de Tuito Selva. It is a 5 minute walk to Villa, where you can pick up basic foodstuff and water at the local stores. \

Villa del Mar is part of Cabo Corrientes and the Selva de Tuito. The Selva between Tuito and Villa is amazingly beautiful. 'Selva' means jungle but it is really more woodsy and very mountainous.

This area is known for its risky currents and fierce undertow--there's good swimming in nearby Tehua (and amazing fresh fish from a multitude of great restaurants). While the intensity of the ocean here gets in the way of swimming, it makes for amazing wave watching. Lie on the sand cliff the tide makes and watch the hermit crabs play chicken with the ocean, as the sun sets... or just sit and me lulled into peace by the pounding waves.

Rent a kayak from El Cielito and explore the estuary or go horseback-riding with Juan (or by yourself if you are experienced) for $5 and hour.

Want more relaxing? Estela is an excellent and very experienced massage therapist--she does deep tissue and relaxation. She can bring her massage table to your cabaña. The charge is $500 MXN (~$25 US).

The beach is beautiful, so beautiful it is easy to forget the gorgeous mountains! Rent a quad or horse (from Juan, $10/hour) and investigate the amazing Selva. It is not a tropical jungle but rather woodsy and fascinatingly beautiful in its own way. (And yes, of course, you can also ride on the beach!)

Hungry?

Esthela will definitely offer you something to eat if you come by their house. It's delicious!

The two-story orange house at the crossroads of the little town sells tacos on Saturday and Sunday nights. Just come up to the door and ask for as many as you would like. They are amazing!

From the grove, you can see the lights of a small fishing village, Tehualmixtle. (Locals often call it Tay-Wah.) This is an unusual spot along the coast because it is sheltered from the rough waves and fierce undertow typical of the area. Swimming at Tehua is delightful. And so are the seafood and oysters sold at the local restaurants--fresh caught that day. This is also where you want to go to charter a fishing boat, of course.

Another great watering hole is the Rinconcito in Mayto--relaxed, excellent food, often lots of Americans and Canadians. Closer to you--next door in fact--is a more posh hotel/restaurant called El Cielito. For a fee you can log into your internet there and catch up. The restaurant has an awesome view.

Juan and Estela are warm, caring and have the gift of creating a peaceful and happy environment. They are deeply rooted in the local community and very knowledgeable about plants and animals of the region. Juan built the cabañas using traditional methods: daub and wattle using flexible branches and local clay, locally-made adobe bricks, palapa roofs. From hammock hooks to the hand-made adornments in the tilework on the floors to the broth of local seafood, everything Juan and Estela make is informed by history, local materials and a lifetime of wisdom. Their motive for creating this business for the grove is that they want to protect it from development, a little sliver of peace.

Durante il tuo soggiorno
Juan and Estela are very friendly and 'simpatico.' They live in a house about 5 minutes' walk down the road and are readily available to help you. They don't speak much English, but they are great at communicating across language barriers!
