with comforts you will not soon forget. Located just 20 minutes north of
the Puerto Vallarta airport, Casa Terra is beachfront #9-A at La Puntilla--a gated and secure complex of 19 luxury homes
spaciously set on 7 acres. Casa Terra is
minutes from Bucerias and within walking distance to the fishing village of La
Cruz de Huanacaxtle on Mexico's Pacific coast--an area that is quickly becoming
known as the Riviera Nayarit.

beachfront rental property, but a place where you can leave your cares at home
and relax poolside in this privately owned beachfront villa that was furnished
