About Rachael Palacios

This is my father's property, he lives in Mexico and I live in the U.S. My sister and I are helping him manage this.

Rachael Palacios purchased this condo in 2008

Why Rachael Palacios chose Colima State

He owns a house in Club Santiago and bought this as an extra place to have on hand when there were too many of us to stay at the house.

What makes this condo unique

This is a unique, quiet complex that is away from the hustle and bustle, but close enough if you want to go into town and eat at the restaurants in Santiago (Juanito's is a favorite) or Manzanillo.

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for close to 3 weeks by myself and enjoyed every minute of it. The deck is right on the ocean and amazing. The place is large, very clean and well furnished with great appliances that seem brand new. It was more than ample space for me and any guests that stopped by. The view is beautiful and the sound of the ocean is very calming Vida Del Mar has changed a little since I visited last around 20 years ago. The restaurant is closed now and there is nothing that close to the resort in terms of places to eat or shop. I had a wonderful stay but would recommend renting a car if you are staying at Vida Del Mar.

Relaxing place to be not too far from the city

  • 5 of 5

This condo was so great experience, the owner has everything if you want to prepare your own meals. Ocean Front, I enjoyed the ocean, have the windows open and relax with the waves. Its so private with security guard 24hrs and they do not let other people get in the community. Wireless internet, great restaurant close by with great food and great price. I was going to complain about the road but on our way out, they were fixing it, so we got exited to come back to this beautiful and peaceful place! They have a public beach close by where you can go shop for items of the region! This is one of the places where you want to come back over and over!

Este condominio fue una experiencia reliosa, los dueños tienen todo por si quieren preparar sus propias comidas. Enfrente del oceano para escuchar el mar, esas olas que golpean las piedras hasta ganas dan de dormer con las ventanas aviertas. Siempre hay seguridad y no dejan pasar a nadie si no esta autorizado. Internet en el condominio para poder comunicarse. Esta un restaurant cerca muy rico y buen precio. Tiene una playa publica muy cerca para ir a comprar las cosas de la region. Este es uno de los lugares que uno regresa una y otra vez....!

Very pleasant

  • 4 of 5

The appartment is very well situated, well kept, clean and tasteful. The best is the view - right on to the small bay with crashing waves. 3 minutes walk away is the beautiful pool complex, also with lovely views. In terms of logistics the place is easy to find, there is ample parking and communication and coordination with the owner was smooth and fast. This condo makes the perfect getaway spot for a quiet weekend out of season.

A truly relaxing experience

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a wonderful surprise after negotiating a "squirly" road. It is located in a gated community, overlooking the Pacific, set among very well groomed grounds. We found the apartment very well equipped and we particularly loved the Therapedic bed! Another highlight was the nearby L'Recif pool, with its magnificent views from the top of a promontory. The owner gave us all the information about the area, facilities etc. in the information leaflet received prior to our arrival. A most enjoyable visit.

To enjoy the visit to its fullest, a car is almost essential to explore the many restaurants and beaches in Manzanillo. Our favourite is La Boquita, accessed through Club Santiago, where the waves are very gentle, compared to the main Santiago Bay. The Lagoon offers even a more gentle environment, and rental of an enormous umbrella, deck chairs and table allow one to have a picnic lunch or order fresh seafood dishes from the many restaurants that line the beach.

Just Perfect---5 Stars

  • 5 of 5

The condo is immaculate. Plenty of room. Large patio overlooking the bay where we had breakfast every morning with absolutely stunning views. Great location right on the coast. Very quiet,tranquil complex. Nearby pool with more breathtaking views was very enjoyable. Property owner was very helpful with the rental process and provided many helpful tips regarding the area. Would highly recommend this property and already thinking about another visit in the near future.

I loved this condo. The most awesome view, you can hear the ocean, peaceful, and super secure. We never felt unsafe, the community staff was very helpful and courteous. The owners were easy to work with and were very responsive. I give my highest recommendation to rent this condo.

Manzanillo is a well-known resort destination in Mexico and was the first shipping yard in Latin America, built in 1531. Today it is Mexico's most important commercial seaport and a popular port of call with cruise liners. Known as the Sailfish Capital of the world, the port is host to many national and international competitions. Manzanillo consists of two large bays and boasts an average of 350 sunny days a year. You don't have to be a fishing aficionado to enjoy all Manzanillo has to offer. It has several resorts, the most famous of which is Las Hadas of Dudley Moore and Bo Derek '10' fame. Club Santiago is also a favorite spot with the foreign set, particularly in the winter months. Vida del Mar, the complex in this listing, is situated beyond the Club Santiago, set high on a mountain side with ocean views. It is not on the actual bay of Santiago and the small beaches of Vida del Mar are considered open ocean. The complex is therefore not recommended for young children and is best suited for adults who mainly enjoy relaxing by the pool, going into town for shopping or a nice meal, or exploring all the region has to offer. Vida del Mar has two pools and a restaurant, L'Recif that is open in the high season. The restaurant is poolside with a bar and has fantastic views of the ocean below.

But if sitting by the pool is not enough for you, there is plenty to do around Manzanillo.

There are golf courses nearby, at Club Santiago, or other hotel resorts in Manzanillo, or further away at Barra de Navidad. A trip to La Culebra and eating Pescado Sarandeado by the lagoon is highly recommended. You can catch a boat there that will take you past the Ritz Carlton resort to Barra de Navidad, a favorite spot with the more bohemian crowd.

About an hour southeast of the port is Cuyutlan, famous for the Ola Verde beach, home to some of the best surfing in Mexico.

Ecotourism is available at Manantlan Biosphere Reserve where there is a 100 ft. waterfall. People can swim, hike, mountain bike and go abseiling. Arrangements for these trips can be typically done through the local hotels.

Colima, the State capital is inland, about an hour away past the Sierra Mountains. There is an active volcano aptly named Volcan del Fuego that is known to spew lava/smoke when in a foul mood, making a perfect dramatic subject for the avid photographer. A dormant volcano next to it, Volcan Nevado de Colima forms part of the national park where you can go hiking, see the crater lake, spot wildlife, etc. Wise to check on conditions before going.

Just outside Colima is the Pueblo Magico of Comala, known for its painted white adobe buildings. About a mile outside of Comala is the Nogueras Cultural Center, housed in a former sugar hacienda.

How active you want to be is up to you. If you prefer to stay in Vida del Mar and enjoy the views poolside, or meditate to the hypnotic sound of the crashing waves in the privacy of the apartment, you will be sure to return rejuvenated.
