Your September Paradise at Rancho Banderas

Soft white sands, crystal-clear waters, stunning underwater seascape… paradise for scuba divers and snorkelers…

This September escape to five-star Rancho Banderas Vacation Villas, a beachfront property located on the north shore of the Bay of Banderas in the state of Nayarit, Mexico. The resort consists of luxurious villas nestled on red sandstone bluffs that rise from the beach and fit naturally into the landscape.

The resort is just a few minutes from wondrous snorkeling at Las Islas Marietas, a protected wildlife sanctuary, offshore in the Bay of Banderas near Punta de Mita, a few miles north of Nuevo Vallarta.

The visibility in the waters of Puerto Vallarta varies from about 25 to 40 meters. (Summer is the best time to go diving.)

Islas Marietas became popular for its roles in the documentaries Jacques Cousteau created in the 1970’s which showcased the area’s rich underwater life. Reefs covered with fish and stingrays abound. You can also see underwater caves and cliffs in the area.

Visit Rancho Banderas September 20 through 27 with a ocean front junior suite (complete with kitchen) for only $788 a week! (If you booked this at kayak.com, you would pay over $200 per night! Price negotiable depending on individual circumstances.)

Contact me today for details and to reserve. This deal won’t last!
