A New Attraction for our Guests...When we moved to this lovely property in Sayulita in 2011, we could not resist making another garden to take advantage of the tropical climate, lush vegetation and the expansive ocean and jungle views of Casa Buena Vista. It has been many years in the making and is an on-going project but we are now ready to invite our guests to have a look.

In the beginning, we had little more than some steep hillsides with some magnificent trees and glimpses of what the vistas could be. Janet envisioned a terraced garden with sweeping staircases and began to lay it out in chalk dust on one of the hillsides. This is what happened....

Fast WiFi in the whole garden for those who want to work under a palapa

The garden can be accessed by our private jungle staircase from Villa Iguana Verde or by road from the Punta Mita Hwy. Maps will be provided to guests and sometimes our head gardener Enrique will be available to give tours

We invite you to come for a tour, have a picnic, go for a strenuous run or, with prior arrangement, play croquet, bocce or badminton on the lawns
