“A Perfect Vacation”
Reviewed 15 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We arrived in Puerto Vallarta amongst the throng of American spring breakers, but nothing was more pleasing than the assurance that we would be leaving them all for the idyllic location and atmosphere of Casa Colibri. We were not disappointed. From the moment you arrive at Casa Colibri, the combination of warm sun, fresh breeze, and the only noise coming from the birds, you are put into a state of total relaxation. The design of the house is stunning. The open air palapa that serves as the main hang out area and extends into the kitchen is ideal for lazy days, and if we desired more sun we only had to move several feet outside of the palapa and soak in the rays. Of course, we would eventually overheat and then have no choice but to slide several more feet into the refreshing pool to cool off. Life was rough. Afternoons were spent either by the estuary riding waves or by the community pool on the edge of the point overlooking the Pacific with an ageless fig tree towering above serving as lookout. It's almost worth the trip just to see the tree itself. There are plenty of excursion options that will take you away from the Point, and we chose to go off to La Tovara for a crocodile/jungle ride that was absolutely fantastic. However, being at the house and the Point was exactly what we were desiring. The food, as made by the fantastic staff, was always waiting for us in all of its glory. I'm sure we all gained weight, mostly because you can't refuse seconds (or thirds or fifths) when things taste as they did. The only downside (as concluded by the group) is that we had to leave. We comforted ourselves by promising that we would return.
