For a change of pace, Playa Bruja is a casual fifteen minute walk away, with its awesome surfing beach, and rocky point, great for cast fishing. When you go to Playa Bruja, make sure to visit our favorite casual dining spot, Mr. Lionso's Restaurant, which features lobster tails and giant prawns for 130 pesos (about 10 bucks), ice cold Corona and Pacifico beers, 2 for 1, cost a buck and a half, and huge margaritas, 2 for 1, cost 50 pesos (less than 4 bucks).

Take a moonlight stroll on the beach, and let the soothing sound of gentle waves put you into that very special relaxed mood. Return to your unit, slip into "his and hers" terry cloth robes (provided specially for our romantic renters ;-), and dip into the hot tub, directly adjacent to the patio of our apartment ... how seducingly convenient! The only part of renting from us that we can't truly describe is the intangible feeling of being "at home" while on vacation. Most other condos are sterile, cookie cutter units, painted in hotel white, with exactly four identical hotel towels, exactly six matching dinner plates, etc. When you walk into our place, you'll immediately notice the personality of the apartment. Amy has decorated the unit in bright pastel colors and traditional Mexican motifs. Al's personal touches are musical, including a hand-made Mexican guitar made from world-famous Paracho, Michoacan, as well as the antique cornet sitting on the livingroom cabinet. The kids have their favorite seashell collections for all to admire, and we've left a few photos of our family for guests to see with whom they are sharing their very unique Mexican experience. Are we exaggerating? This all may sound too good to be true, but seeing is beleiving! Email us, and we'll send you a big batch of pictures of us, our kids and family, and our apartment, as well as the great town and resort complex we've chosen as our very special home-away-from-home. "Al and Amy's Oceanfront Getaway" is available for long weekends, weekly, monthly, or long-term rentals. Utilities and taxes (17% extra at hotels and resorts) are always included. Our local rental manager is available 24 hours a day, as is the friendly staff at Costa Bonita.Before you arrive, we'll send you a list of vacation recommendations, a list of "what there is to see and do" in and around town, and a bunch of money saving tips, only known by the locals ... and some special secret ones not even known by them. Past renters report having saved hundreds of dollars on our specific referrals to local doctors and dentists, pharmacies, artisans, sailing cruises, fishing expeditions, sigh
