Welcome to our home away from home! Costa Bonita is a relatively new development, built in 2001, on the North end of Mazatlan. We chose to buy here because it is located on what is considered to be the best beach in Mazatlan, Cerritos Beach. The beach is long and flat with rich, warm sand. There are no rocks and the water deepens gradually allowing the whole family to enjoy the waves. If you are into surfing there is a great point break about 1/2 a mile away. Yes, they rent surfboards!
Being at the North end of Mazatlan means that Costa Bonita is quiet. If you've visited Mexico before you may know how important this is! If you are looking for nightclubs and party bars within walking distance then our home is not for you. But, everything you could want, including nightclubs, is only a short and inexpensive bus or taxi ride away.
Because all of the units are privately owned you won't find all of the 'resort-type' amenities like para-gliding and sailboat rentals. These activities are available at other locations nearby and the concierge can make bookings for you. The trade-off for not being in a hotel is the quiet, uncrowded, peaceful beach – we’ve never seen more than a handful of people on the beach!
Costa Bonita is 'U-shaped' so most units look in towards the pool and beautiful grounds. However, our unit is quite unique in that it is at the front corner of the building, right on the beach, giving you wonderful, wide, breathtaking ocean views. During the day the surf is literally crashing at your feet. Each evening you’ll enjoy unobstructed sunsets and at night the waves will lull you to sleep. It’s a truly amazing experience.
When you can pull yourself away from the view, you'll find that our home also offers two bedrooms, each with queen beds, and two full bathrooms, one of which is an en-suite off of the master. The living room has new leather couches, one of which is a sofa-bed, a stereo, and an LCD TV with cable. There is free cabled or WiFi Internet.
The full kitchen is large and is well equipped with a fridge, stove, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, and a microwave. If you do choose to cook some of your meals you'll find everything you need.
