Our second stay in La Montana at Casa la Ventana was as wonderful as the first stay last year. This time we stayed 10 wonderful days in early March 2013. Temperatures were perfect - cool in the morning and evening (perfect for sleeping) and warm, sunny and breezy during the day. Coffee delivered first thing to our room was a treat, followed by amazing, healthy breakfasts in the Tree House. Spectacular views from there and our private veranda right off our room greeted us 24/7. Christina was the ultimate host, willing to arrange our dinner reservations at Le Kliff and the quaint Ocean Grill, located a half hour hike through the jungle (on a marked trail) to a beautiful little beach at Colomitos. We were delivered back to Boca by boat after the meal. The massages with Cesar in the Tree House were heavenly - be sure to book this for your stay! This Casa is up 100 steps, so we used that as our cardio workout each day. Evening meals were at local Boca restaurants, all the food lovingly prepared and at very reasonable prices!
I cannot say enough about how relaxing our vacation was. We could be busy or do nothing. If you want a shot of city-life or to shop for souvenirs at the Flea Market, Puerto Vallarta was a quick 30 min. bus ride, for only 7 pesos.
New this year is a lovely chlorine-free pool and palapa lounge area. The pool is solar heated and was a perfect 78F. We used it every day.
If you are looking for a place to relax that is not a resort, THIS is the place!
Casa La Ventana gets 5 STARS!
