Vacation Spots in Mexico

With winter approaching, a lot of us are already dreaming of a warm, southern getaway. There’s just nothing like listening to the waves crash and feeling the sun against your skin. And that’s exactly why so many Americans flock to Mexico during the summer months. In fact, it has been predicted that Mexico will be the number one vacation destination for Americans in 2015, as it was in 2014. There are a lot of popular vacation spots in Mexico, but none of them compare to the pristine and secluded beaches that you will find in the Mexican Riviera Nayarit. Playa Las Tortugas is known for its beauty along with its seclusion. And unlike other beaches in Mexico, you won’t find any vendors on our beaches, meaning you will be left free to play, surf, or just relax while on vacation. Sound like a dream come true? Read on to find out what else Playa Las Tortugas has in store for your next getaway.

Surfing and Boogie Boarding

Whether you’re a pro or just starting out, you will love riding the waves along our shores. We offer complimentary boogie boards and rent surfboards out for only $10 a day, meaning you can ride the waves all day long without spending a fortune for the experience. The Riviera Nayarit offers a long coastal line for surfers and boogie boarders, and our waters are ideal for beginners, especially kids who are just getting their feet wet with boogie boards. And when you’re ready for a break, make sure to look straight down from your board. Our waters are so clear that you’ll be able to see the ocean floor. 


Packing clothes for a vacation can be stressful enough without worrying about extras. Go ahead and leave your beach gear at home when you’re heading out to Riviera Nayarit. We have you covered with everything you and your family will need to have a fun day at the beach, from sand castle toys to umbrellas to beach chairs and towels. We know you want to relax on your vacation, so let us do the packing for you. All you need to bring is your sense of wonder and adventure as you try to build the biggest sand castle you can.

Surf Fishing

All that playing on the beach is bound to work up your appetite, so catch yourself dinner while you’re out there! While you can take a fishing charter, you can also have just as much luck fishing from the shore of the untouched Costa Custodia shoreline, which has an abundant array of wild fish. In the past, guests have pulled Jack Crevale, Sierra Mackerel and Rooster Fish from the shores right in front of the villas. The best part is, you can cook it up on the grill that comes with your villa, or, if you prefer to leave cooking to the professionals, let one of our local cooks incorporate your fresh catch into your lunch or dinner.

Evening bonfires

What is any beach vacation without a sunset bonfire? Don’t worry about collecting firewood, though. Simply let the staff know that you’re planning a bonfire, and you will find a nice pile of tinder ready for you. Sit and relax with your friends and family, and maybe even make some new friends who will inevitably be drawn to the beauty and magic of a sunset bonfire among the gorgeous views.

Are you ready for a beach getaway that is unlike any other? Playa Las Tortugas offers a Mexican getaway that is free from vendors and offers all the activities you want from the beach, including the opportunity to just relax and get away from reality for a little while.
