If you’re thinking warm travel plans for this fall and winter, think SOUTH. Sure, we’ve all heard about Puerto Vallarta or Cancun Mexico, but how about something less traveled? A little more remote, but still only 35 miles away from an airport? Then my friends, Costalegre might be your perfect date. Located on the Pacific coast, Costa Alegre, which means Happy Coast, has many wonderful small fishing villages with quiet, peaceful and secluded beaches.
With just three hours south of Puerto Vallarta, and near neighboring towns such as: La Manzanilla, Cihuatlan, Melaque, Barra de Navidad, Isla Navidad, Tenacatita, Boca de Iguanas, Los Ingenios, Emiliano Zapata, Rebalsito, Careyes, El Tecuan and Tamarindo, you’ll have more than plenty to do and see! Speaking from first hand experience, Costalegre was nothing more than happy times on the beach. Nothing seems better than paired up at the beach with a delicious margarita or piña colada, significant other, or great family and friends. Agreed?
Travel Tip: Visit Tamarindo Beach, known for one of the best luxury hideaways on Mexico’s Pacific Coast. If you’re feeling like you can afford the splurge and need some pampering and golf time, than stay at El Tamarindo Beach & Golf Resort, an exclusive golf resort where forest and ocean meet. Nearest airport: Manzanillo. ¡Buen viaje! Pura Vida:)
