MI CASA ES SU CASA! Eighty feet above the Pacific with its roaring surf and incredible sea life, you can spend your entire day mesmerized by fantastic vistas absolutely unobstructed with the exception of swaying palms. The surging waves pound against the rocky Pacific coast. The soft roar becomes ambient background music that quickly blocks out all thoughts of home. The condo is located in Vida del Mar, a mountainside gated community of 199 condos in 13 buildings with 3 pools and a 4 Star Mexican Riviera restaurant, “L’Recife”.
This condo is ideal for honeymooners or others seeking a private romantic setting on the ocean. We do not recommend Vida as a place for children and pets are not allowed in our condo. A queen size bed adjacent to the balcony provides a magnificent view of sparkling blue ocean water. Sleep in the open air with ceiling fans and gentle breezes off the ocean.
The balcony is where you will spend 80% of your waking hours. Equipped with a full bar and gas grill, the chaise lounge and comfy sofa will be the ultimate resting place for your stay. Prepare any meals in the modern, fully equipped kitchen with 2 refrigerators (one for beverages), microwave, dishwasher, etc. Eat on the edge of the balcony and watch for rays, whales, pelicans and frigates soaring overhead or diving for bait fish, container and cruise ships and on and on. Whales frequent the area in December through March. A nightly flight of bats can be seen leaving their mountainside caves to feed in the nearby lagoons. Binoculars are provided. A fully stocked bar is available for your pleasure. More than ideal for sun worshipers, a short walk to one of the 3 pools will give you more sun than you should probably endure. Be super careful as the sun is very intense and high quality sunscreen is absolutely necessary.
Shopping and fabulous restaurants are a short drive to the main highway. While Spanish is the predominant language, you will have no problem communicating with the wonderful native residents. Shopping malls are very friendly and have most anything you could want. There are all types of restaurants available, many on the beach. Whether you enjoy fabulous seafood (mariscos), steaks, pasta or sushi, it is all available and as fine as at home.
Vida del Mar is located about 25 km south of the Manzanillo (ZLO) Interntional Airport, we will assist you with rental car reservations. All flights connect through hub cities, such as, Dallas, Houston, Phoenix or LA. If your stay is for a shorter duration you will probably want to fly direct to ZLO, but if it will be a longer duration, consider a night or two in Guadalajara, and a 3 ½ hour drive to Vida via a modern toll road.
Golf is available at the spectacular 'Isla de Navidad' or 'El Tamarindo' courses or nearby 'Las Hadas' or 'Club Santiago'. Incredible marlin and mahi mahi fishing can be arranged in advance. Many side trips are available for scuba diving, to see magnificent giant green turtles, the Colima volcano or the Zona Magnetica where cars and balls roll up hill!
