A friendly couple of American expats (he’s a former Eastern Airlines pilot) own and run this charming cliff-top hideaway with a drop-dead gorgeous view of the ocean and Boca de Iguana Beach below. The furniture is stylish, and homey touches like lamps and fish-theme wall decorations make the snug apartments just right for holing up for a week or even a month. The two apartments upstairs, with thatched roofs and kitchen and living room open to the elements, are not usually available in summer due to the rain; the rest of the year they’re highly coveted. One has an outdoor shower with a view.
Coconuts by the Sea
The guest suites at Coconuts by the Sea are designed with the comforts of home in mind. They compare with the very best of luxury vacation rentals in Mexico. Boca de Iguanas is located far enough away from the village to enjoy a peaceful nights sleep with only the sounds of nature, and yet it is close enough to walk along the beach to La Manzanilla, shopping and great restaurants that are part of the wonderful Mexican experience.
