Our villa is located on the beautiful, sandy, swimming beach of Los Ayala which is approximately 1 km. long, just perfect for a jog or relaxing sunset walk.
The Terraza suite with its 180 degree view of the ocean encompasses the entire top floor of the home and is appointed with beautifully furnishings and hand carved furniture, original works of art, hand painted dishes and bathroom fixtures (even the toilets!).
It has a fabulous terrace over-looking the ocean, one hammock chairs, a large hand-woven hammock, lounge chairs, BBQ and two dining areas. Kayaks, bicycles, SUP, beach umbrellas, beach chairs and lounges along with tennis racquets, golf clubs, crocquet and bocce are also available for guest use.
The bedroom is very spacious with a view of the ocean. It has European king size beds (or two twins), a large bathroom with an open shower, full kitchen with oven, fridge, blender, microwave, toaster and coffee pot.
A massage therapist is available at our guests' request for a private in-suite massage at a very reasonable rate or Yoga classes nearby.
Our special little town of Los Ayala which is located in Riviera Nayarit (or also known as the Mexican Riviera) caters mainly to Mexican tourists but is rapidly being discovered by folks further afield.
There are many palapa style restaurants on the beach, nearby groceries stories and a collective taxi service which will take you to the nearby towns of Rincon de Guayabitos or La Penita. From there, it is easy to catch a bus to Guadalajara, Tepic, Puerto Vallerta or other small towns nearby such as San Francisco or Sayulita which are surfing towns.
On the beach, enjoy purchasing fresh fish, prawns, muffins or other delights including pineapples filled with fresh fruit. One can never go hungry on Los Ayala beach!
There are many things to do here such as fishing, hiking, boating, tennis, kayaking, biking, visiting interesting sights such as the petrogylphs, visits to the various hot springs, the weekly outdoor market or the boat tour through mangrove swamps to view a multitude of wildlife including crocodiles and many varieties of birds in historic San Blas.
We have many return visitors including those who wish to celebrate a special event: a wedding, an anniversary or birthday! If your have such an event, we will make it special for you!
We have three friendly dogs on our premises and are proud sponsors of Jaltemba Bay Animal Rescue (JBAR). Pet lovers most welcome!

From humble and spontaneous beginnings, Casa Contenta first began as a dream for the loving owners who stumbled upon the location while traveling through Mexico. It was love at first sight. Though the original house bears almost no resemblance to Casa Contenta as it exists today, much effort was put in to maintain the original character, charm and cultural elements. This distinctly Mexican home highlights many of the local architectural design styles, materials and artwork. We know you will enjoy it.
And as we say in Mexico, “Mi casa es su casa”.
