Imagine looking out to catch the sunset over Banderas Bay from the lanai of this luxurious new condo. Now look down at the spectacular crystalline pools, the restful seating and sunning areas, and the welcoming swim-up bar on the edge of the infinity pool. Just beyond is the immaculate beach itself. Is that splash out in the water a school of dolphins or a pod or whales?
Inside, the kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and all the equipment you'll need during your stay. Relax in the comfortable living area furnished with custom decor.
The master bedroom features a king size bed as well as a sofa that can quickly and easily convert to a queen size bed. The adjacent bathroom contains loads of built-in closet and drawer space, a huge walk-in shower, and a luxurious vanity with double sinks.
The second bedroom has two queen size beds. Its bath has built-in drawers and closets, and a large walk-in shower.
Nuevo Vallarta is just 15 minutes north of the airport, and only about 20 minutes from charming Puerto Vallarta. A pleasant walk north along the beach will bring you to the cobblestone streets of Bucerias, a classic old Mexican town with a huge craft market and inexpensive restaurants.
The DelCanto beach is clean and well groomed, with comfortable lounge chairs. There is a gentle slope into the generally warm, calm waters of Bandaras Bay. Try body surfing or a boogie board on the days the wind stirs up a little wave action.
The entrance and exit of DelCanto are manned by a 24 hour security service. Each entrance requires an access card. There is a concierge on duty in the lobby. And there is ample underground parking leading to a secure elevator.
Appetizers, light dining, and drinks are available under the palapa at the swim up bar in the heated infinity edge pool. Or take a short cab or bus ride to the virtually unlimited dining and cultural experiences offered in Puerto Vallarta, Bucerias, the Marina, or nearby Paradise Village. Or create your own feast (and mix up your own Margaritas) after shopping at the nearby Megamart, Walmart, or Paradise Village Plaza. There's even a Sam's Club, Costco, and Home Depot within a 20 minute drive!
Golfers will enjoy the nearby Flamingo and El Tigre courses or the Marina Club, near the airport. The big hitters will head for the challenges of the two courses at Vista Vallarta. The Nicklaus Course hosts an annual World Golf Tour event and was rated the #7 Best Caribbean Course in 2011 by Golfweek. The equally challenging Weiskopf Course was rated #19.
Charter services are easily available for fishing, whale watching and snorkeling. Other units at DelCanto with similar features are also available, if you plan to travel with a group.
The owners are a judge and a retired lawyer from Illinois. We also have another condo on the gulf coast in Florida. Traveling the world is our passion.
Pat Leston purchased this condo in 2011
We've been coming to Puerto Vallarta since 1990, and always left wanting more. We saw Nuevo Vallarta get its start, and we decided that DelCanto was the perfect location for us. It has all of the state-of-the-art amenities of a new community, with plenty of access to the traditional fun of old Mexico.
1 week after Hurricane Patricia pass through with a brief drizzle, the weather was perfect. The view from the balcony was spectacular. We looked over the pools right at the beach and ocean. We could see fireworks in PV at night. The balcony was shaded nicely from the sun. Not too high or too low. This 2 bedroom unit was nicely furnished, and un-crowded for 5 adults. We will try to get this exact one again.
This is our third visit to the Delcanto. We brought our friends this time and had a great vacation. As usual, Eddie met us at the Delcanto when we arrived and made sure all of our needs were met. He quickly responds to any requests and makes sure you have a great vacation. The unit at the Delcanto was great as usual. Spacious two bedrooms with great views. This unit was appointed very well and was very comfortable and homey.
The Mega store is only a 30 minute walk and you can get anything there. The poolside bar makes great food and drinks and the prices are cheap.
Head down the beach to Karen's place in Bucerias and have a great lunch or dinner on the beach.
We will be back again next year.
We can't wait to go back to Delcanto. The location is excellent for us- walking distance to Mega and restaurants, and lovely Bucerias, and the area has great bus service to Puerto Vallarta and surrounding areas. The condo was very well equipped and very comfortable, and the staff is wonderful. Property manager Eddie has more condos and runs boating charters for fishing and whale watching.
Although we have been to the Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta area before, this was by far the most enjoyable trip. The condo is gorgeous and perfectly designed and equipped for your every comfort. We bought breakfast and snack foods from nearby Mega, but mostly enjoyed excellent cuisine at Marina Vallarta (a short cab ride away), Buserias (a beautiful 45-minute beach walk north) , Puerto Vallarta (a must-take water taxi ride from Paradise Village) and the swim-up bar at the infinity pool! Paradise Village, a 45 minute walk to the south has beautiful rescued tigers and exotic birds on the premises. We always felt safe and could rely on assistance from the staff when needed. Whether relaxing and watching dolphins and sunsets from the balcony or seeking adventure which was always near, this just couldn't have been better.
This condo offers all the comforts of home. The furnishings are both classy and comfortable. The DelCanto staff is available and does good job taking care of anything you need. While I was at the pool some people walked up from the beach asking questions about the property. Security was right there to assist them.
The owners provided me a list of information about the area, things to do and how to get around. It was helpful and made things easier.
Whether you have a car or take a taxi stores for food and things to do are close. I walked the beach every day for enjoyment and exercise but horse back riding on the beach was a blast!
The town of Bucerias was a healthy walk down the beach or a short car ride. Lots of good restaurants and stores filled with one of a kind things to buy.
There are also many smaller stands to buy local crafts.
We took advantage of Zip Lining and Deep Sea Fishing Adventures. I was not disappointed.
The weather was hot and sunny every day. The sunsets spectacular.
I loved every minute of my vacation while staying here. The amenities of the condo and proximity to shopping (Nuevo Vallarta shops/ MegaMart for groceries) make it a perfect place for a family vacation. The Del Canto building and grounds are stunning. The personnel are friendly and extremely accommodating. The condo is immaculately kept with brand new appliances and furniture and the space/ layout is extremely generous for a vacation rental.
While there I fell in love with Buscerias, the town just north of Nuevo Vallarta. A nice walk along on the beach will take you away from the resorts of Nuevo Vallarta and into a smaller Mexican beach community with great restaurants.
From Nuevo Vallarta it is very easy to hop on a bus to downtown Puerto Vallarta or to Sayulita for a day trip. I can't wait to get back to Del Canto!
