Question about Punta el Custodio villas/Riviera Nayarit

Good Afternoon Everyone!

We are considering renting a private villa in the gated community of Punta el Custodio.

We have been informed that the villa is a 2 hour drive North from Puerto Vallarta.

I would love to hear from anyone who is familiar with this area and ask about any concerns with safety when driving from the airport to the villa and then would love to know about safety of the Riviera Nayarit area.

I know there is a lot of noise lately in Mexico about safety, drugs etc. so by no means do I mean any disrespect to paint all locations with the same brush....but just doing our due diligence before we book.

Would love any feedback, thoughts, concerns or what your experience what like out there.

Thank you so much in advance!!!!

We just returned from a week in one of the villas (Villa Estrella) and could not be more pleased. The drive from Puerto Vallarta went without incident - it was very simple to find. We rented a car and the drive took about 1:45. As for the Villas/compound...wow. It was quiet, private peaceful, unbelievably beautiful and very safe. Ismeal, the property manager speaks fluent English and was very accomidating. We enjoyed the beach, hiking down the waterfalls to our "private" pool (no one else was present so neither were our clothes... :), enjoyed seeing the whales from our infinity pool, enjoyed the deep sea fishing and then eating fresh Tuna which our fabulous cook prepared. Theis place is totally awesome.
