Experience a little bit of paradise 
enjoy a first class tropical vacation









Cab fare to La Puntilla is around $25.00 - $30.00 US, from the airport or downtown.  Always negotiate the cost of the cab up front as there are no meters.  The taxi stand at the airport can tell you how much the cab will be before getting in.  Let the taxi stand person know that the house is between Bucerias and La Cruz de Huanacaxtle.  When you turn off the Highway 200 to La Cruz tell him LA PUNTILLA. 

To take the bus to the house from the airport, cross the bridge (walkway over the road ) and wait at the bottom of the stairs for the Compostela bus.  The bus will stop for you.  Take a bus that has "La Cruz" or "Punta Mita" written across the front windshield 

If you are driving, there is a new 4 lane highway all the way to La Cruz.  From the Airport, follow the signs to Highway or Compostella 200 to Tepic.  You will drive about  22 kms (15 miles) or 20 minutes to the house.  We will provide complete directions once final payment has been received.

In the centre of the satellite picture, you will see will see La Puntilla, the complex where Casa Terra is located.   There are 10 houses along the beach and 9 homes in the oceanfront row.  Each house has its own private swimming pool.

Casa Terra is the 9th house from the long driveway that you see (on the left of the complex). There is one oval shaped pool in the next complex (to the left) then count 9 pools (to the right) and Casa Terra has the square pool near the top of the complex. There is a little breakwater in front of the complex on the other side of Casa Terra

If you zoom in one or two clicks you will see 4 chaise lounges on the grass in front of Casa Terra

At the complex to the left, you will see the "horseshoe" shaped configuration of houses--with only one swimming pool for the entire complex. At La Puntilla, each house has its own private swimming pool--and there are only 10 houses in the complex that are directly on the beach.  Casa Terra is #9 in the beachfront row of homes.

If you zoom out a couple of clicks you can see the new Marina Riviera Nayarit at La Cruz (less than a 10 minute walk from Casa Terra).

Map of the Bay of Banderas

Map of Banderas Bay Note location of the airport (white dotted strip)
between light green of Marina Vallarta
and the magenta of Nuevo Vallarta. 

La Puntilla is located just past the border
of Bucerias (blue) and North Coast (orange)

The driving time between Punta de Mita,
the most westerly point on the bay
(orange zone of the north coast) and
Mismaloya (south Vallarta, darker green zone)
is approximately 90 minutes,
depending on traffic.

Banderas Bay (Bay of Flags) is a horseshoe-shaped bay theorized to have been formed by an ancient volcanic crater.  Banderas Bay measures nearly 20 miles across with over 40 miles of coastline and is considered one of the deepest bays in the world with depths of up to two miles.  With its deep, calm waters, Banderas Bay offers some of the best sport fishing in the world. Humpback whales, dolphins, sea turtles and giant manta rays are also inhabitants.
