"There are amazing, genuine, kind people in this world–and they all seem to migrate to this location." 
Lori, Las Olas guest June 2010

An easy flight from most North American cities, Puerto Vallarta is a resort mecca, sheltered by the beautiful Bay of Banderas. In less than an hour, you'll find yourself in a magical place, a laid back village on the sea. It's the kind of place that reminds us, "This really is a wonderful world and I fit right in."

The hum of the of the fishing boats, returning with their morning catch, can be heard from the villas perched on the tropical hillside surrounding the bay. The rustic pueblo is a blend of cobblestone streets, palapa huts, and friendly people.

Free of resort hotels and common tourist attractions, you'll find local restaurants serving fresh mahi-mahi covered in mango salsa, a vibrant town plaza of laughing, free-range kids, and hip boutiques featuring artisan jewelry and bohemian fashion, all within a car-free walk from your villa.

The locals are hearty, gracious, and happy to share their village and surf break with thoughtful guests. For nearly 15 years, Las Olas women have blended into the local community. We dine at local cafes, drink at local cantinas, use all the local services from taxis to laundry, and commune with the local surfers and fishing families. Don't expect a gringo resort holiday with the swim-up bar and bikini contest. Instead, look forward to meeting your new friends for the first time.

The temperature is usually in the high 80's and the ocean is about 80°. Wetsuits and jackets are unnecessary most days of the year, but flip-flops are mandatory. Sure, we've glanced at other locations over the years, but nothing compares to our sweet surf paradise in Mexico. Nada.

Las Olas, nada se compara.

"When I read about hardship in parts of Mexico it affects me deeply. For over two decades, I’ve traveled and worked with our neighbors to the south. My experience continues to be rich and wonderful. My Mexico is where the fish is fresh, the smoothies are made with handpicked fruit, and where my niece can walk to the market all by herself. My Mexico is where I erase the line in the sand, and play on the beach."
