Situated 80 miles or a two-hour drive north of the Puerto Vallarta airport, the small 1000-person fishing village of Aticama is located just off the beaten tourist track.
Aticama is known for its tranquility, charm, and beautiful sunsets. The beaches are uncrowded with panoramic vistas of the majestic Pacific Ocean and tropical jungle that surround the village. If you like small town atmosphere and the appeal of beaches that seem to be 'all of your own,' treat yourself to a vacation at Casa Sorrento.
Suitable for artists, plant enthusiasts, birdwatchers, surfers, and hikers this lovely home on its quiet hillside setting presents wonderful Pacific coast views to the south and the Sierra Madre foothills to the east. Enjoy morning coffee or exercises on the palapa-covered, roof-top terrace at sunrise. The terrace offers a shady outdoor living area to view the sweeping tropical landscape and village below.
Aticama's plaza and a string of casual seafood restaurants are located along the shore - ideal for a cold drink, taco, or fresh catch of the day at sunset. The internet cafe is a five-minute walk. Pacific Ocean swimming and recreation at the sandy beach of Matanchen Bay is less than a ten-minute walk from the house.
Airport transfer and local buses are available from Puerto Vallarta (two-hour drive) and Guadalajara (four-hour drive). It is less convenient, but it is quite possible to visit without a car.

I am a 44 year old Mexican citizen living in Aticama, Nayarit, Mexico. I speak English fluently. I live here year round and am available to help you with your needs. The rental unit is a free standing house with its own separate lot and landscaped garden. It is part of a larger estate known as Villa Sorrento. I look forward to meeting you.
Jorge Gonzalez purchased this house in 1998
I love to garden. Aticama is a tropical paradise where plants love to grow. I collect Orchids, Heliconias, Gingers, Anthuriums, Palms, Cycads, Pachypodiums, and other rare species. I would love to show you my gardens.
You get the best of both worlds when you stay at Casita Sorrento! You get the advantage of a safe neighborhood and the privacy of your own house. You have beautiful mountain and ocean views. You can walk to the beach but have the security of not being next to the beach.
We have now stayed at Casa Sorrento four times. It is the most relaxing Mexican beach vacation you could ask for. The hosts are fabulous and do anything and everything to make your stay enjoyable. Don'e expect a typical Mexican tourist place. Aticama is nothing like Puerta Vallarta. The casita is the perfect place to relax.
Absolutely delightful! The hosts were wonderful - attentive and informative. The house for rent is the guesthouse for a large estate. We even used the pool at the main house and the oceanviews at the main house were stunning! The house we stayed at was very secure and was surrounded by beautiful gardens. The ocean and mountain views from the rooftop terraza were very nice. We spent a lot of time just hanging out and relaxing on the rooftop! The nearby beach was great. Mostly deserted and one of the widest and sandiest beach we have seen in Mexico. Highly recommended!!!!
