Puerto Vallarta Villa

The La Villa Bella Community

La Villa Bella su Hacienda is part of an exquisite community, known as Punta el Custudio - a securely gated community of private villas built on a peninsula. Safe, isolated, and tranquil.
We are located near the beach village of Platanitos (Little Bananas) on the Mexican Riviera, in the state of Nayarit. The area is known as Mexico's Gold Coast.

The area boasts over 330 days of uninterrupted sunshine, which makes it a year-round destination.

LA VILLA BELLA – south exit, down a short
staircase to a walk-across ocean estuary
which opens to the Tortugas Turtle
Conservatory and government protected 
tropical bird preserve... with a beach front
that extends for miles.
This isolated pristine
location is a surfer's paradise with some of
the longest and best waves in Mexico!
