Playa Las Tortugas, Mexico
Meet the owners
My wife and I are "seniors" who traveled the world before finding our paradise on this five miles of secluded beach in rural Mexico. I was a Navy pilot and am a retired attorney from South Carolina. Currently, we divide our time between Georgia and Mexico. We love being immersed in nature and fully support the conservation of Mexico's turtle population. We are adventure seekers and we love the stimulating environment which we have found here in "old Mexico". We always feel safe in the State of Nayarit, Mexico, and the people are especially friendly ... they are tolerate of and amused by our dreadfull lack of fluency in the Spanish language.
The culture in rural areas of Mexico has remained true to tradition. Many aspects of life are slow and akin to "yesterday". Often, farmers on horseback are contrasted with huge tractors that foreshadow changes. However, when the sun retreats at day's end, most of the town's people come out to socialize with their neighbors on streets and town squares. "Mom & pop" stores sell vegetables and necessities. All in all, visitors can still experience the cultural warmth of Mexico when visiting this area. Riviera Nayarit.
