I really have been torn about reviewing this place and the villas here. I have been looking for the perfect family beach in Mexico and finally found it. I have found some amazing Mexican beaches in remote locations, but there always seemed to be one...More

We visited Playa Los Tortugas on a recent trip to Mexico. We did not stay at any of properties, but visited them on a day trip. I was hoping to find a place with beginning surf waves that was less insane than Sayulita, as we...More

Thanks for the great review @Hthelady! We're thrilled you stumbled upon us. We're an off-the-beaten-path that few have discovered. Tell your friends! (but just your best ones ;-) If you're looking for a similar swell to Sayulita's, but one without the crowds, you're right that...More

About
Description
Playas Las Tortugas is an enclave of approximately 14 stylish homes that are individually owned and most are rented when the owner is not in residence. They are set in a working coconut plantation and feature all More modern conveniences. They are located between the Pacific Ocean on the West, a bird filled fresh water estuary on the North, and the coconut plantation provides seclusion from the rest of the planet - a place to relax and commune with nature - away from the world's tourists!Rental options vary from a pair of roomy duplexes to multi-bedroom villas. Maid service is provided daily and our gardeners tend the grounds six days per week. Meal preparation is optional. All homes have air-conditioned bedrooms. Groups of homes can be rented for use by groups such as yoga clubs, business groups, and wedding parties. The palm lined beach extends for more than five miles and there are no other dwellings within miles of the beach. The large community pool is centrally located and comfortable.Some beach front villas have private pools/jacuzzi. Kayak rentals are available from the on-site Property Manager. Free WiFi is provided.Guests enjoy surfing, swimming, hiking,fishing, kayaking, horseback riding,relaxing, and massage. The Playa Las Tortugas property manager arranges any excursions desired, airport transportation, and the like. Small Mexican villages are frequently visited for day trips - especially on market days. These small farm towns have some signature Mexican restaurants and the six oceanfront restaurants at Platinitos can be reached in 20 minutes by kayaking across the estuary. Less

Hi, November is probably the very best; followed in succession. The turtles start to hatch less during mid February on out. Marianne
