Well finally some talk about our lovely area! We have been here almost 2 years now, and i agree with Camille, Los Ayala is perfect! It is surrounded by mountains so has limited growth potential which is reassuring to those of us who live and love it here. Our beach is like a big swimming pool, no undertows or drop offs and barely any waves! We have very few beach venders, and the ones we have are very non-aggresive salesmen and women, The shrimp and dorado and red snapper is always fresh and delicious! We have a regular mexican tourist season as well as a growing number of faithful Canadian And American tourists and residents as well. Nearbye Guayabitos has the nite life, more restaurants and more shops but is so close by that it is easy to go to if the need or desire strikes us!
Things to do, well the usual beach bumming, snorkeling, fishing, booze cruizes, whale watching, hiking, eating etc. Also there are so many places to see in day trips within 1-3 hours from here for instance: Puerto Vallarta and its environs, Ixtlan del Rio, Jala, Jamulca, Laguna de san maria, Boca de Naranjo, Mexicatitlan, San Blas, San Pancho, Sayulita, Lo de Marcos, Chacala, Las Varas, Punta Raza, El Tonino and Alta Vista in the mountains, nearbye rivers, virgen and semi virgen beaches, archeological sites, jungle tours, whew... the list is endless. And Guadalajara is only 3.5 hours away if you long for the big city!
Anyway that is only a quick summary.... check out the following links, most are in spanish but still have great pics.

Feel free, anyone, to ask me about the area
