Real Estate in Puerto Vallarta

Picture yourself arriving to Puerto Vallarta with no expectation of falling in love with anyone outside the immediate group that you’re traveling with. On the drive over to the Villa, you find yourself oddly intrigued by the notably more relaxed and care-free way of life. You notice several high-rise developments, but see that Puerto Vallarta is hardly littered by them. You’re intrigued by downtown Puerto Vallarta and old-town Puerto Vallarta having their roads constructed by cobblestones. You thought this was only possible generations ago? You didn’t know that strangers could smile at each other on the streets with so little hesitation and ego.

After the Villa sweeps you off your feet, you feel yourself in a different state of mind. One of relaxation of peace. Taken over by this feeling of adventure, you find yourself spending good portions of your days gallivanting throughout Puerto Vallarta and you find yourself engaged with Puerto Vallarta. You notice some condo developments around town. You’re also intrigued by some of the other beachfront villas. Who do you call?

Coldwell Banker La Costa Realty has been in business for close to 3 decades and has established itself as the most knowledgeable Real Estate Brokerage in Puerto Vallarta. It was actually the first Coldwell Banker Franchise in Mexico in 1998! There are now over 55 Franchises across Mexico. Talk about a flagship! CB La Costa, as some call it, was also the Master Broker under the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury brand a state of the up-scale, master-planned development Punta Mita Resort during its construction and development. This multi-billion dollar development owes many of its accomplishments to the local Coldwell Banker brokerage, who took their year on year sales and increased them by 300%! Several years ago, with the downturn in the economy coupled with the near completion of the development, the focus turned back to Puerto Vallarta. With the shift in focus, coupled with the recent up-tick in business, Coldwell Banker La Costa continues to be a Market Leader putting its over 100 years of combined experience in the local Real Estate Market on your side.

So you make a phone call, you set up a few showings. Nothing ventured, nothing gained- right? You walk through a few pretty nice places. You learn all about the Real Estate purchase process in Mexico with your knowledgeable realtor. And then when you least expect it- bam! You walk into the last showing you had set up for the day and there it is. This is it. Your new home in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Your escape from reality. Your weekend getaway. Your investment property. Your adventurous side. See honey, I’m not boring!. All wrapped into one. Where do you sign? “Oh, you mean I have to make another trip to Puerto Vallarta in a few months to finalize?” Oh no! That’ll be tough! You wonder if Caleta is booked. You wonder if Happy Hour is even better a few months from now. And most importantly, you wonder what you’re going to call your new home.

Interesting how life happens sometimes, isn’t it?

Villa Location

You fly into what has become what we can now call the International Hub that is the PVR Airport after over 30 years of progress. What was once a series of dirt landing strips is now a multi-terminal, busy, professionally operated international airport serving millions of travelers to Puerto Vallarta each and every year. Your group makes their way past customs (don’t lose the immigration form or you’ll have to pay $50 US for a new one when you leave!) and proceed to the baggage claim area. There are plenty of eager baggage attendants standing by to assist with pulling what ended up being – despite attempts to guard against it – your party’s excessive packing, off the belt and onto the luggage rack to help escort you through the baggage check area and past the 20 meter long time-shark area (if you make it through!) out to the shuttle and taxi area. There will be two taxi companies that will fight vehemently over your attention, but don’t worry- they are limited to their booth stands. As you walk past these lovely ladies, you will be outside and will feel your first spot of sunshine. If you decided to rent a car, all of these agencies will be nearby. If you decided to let us take care of the transportation, odds are that Noe, or someone else in his family’s Shuttle Business, will be there waiting for you after being notified of any flight delays or travel schedule modifications.

You and your group board Noe’s Ship (probably a Suburban) and commence your quick trip across Puerto Vallarta. We’ve worked with him for close to 3 years now and he’s always very warm and congenial. If you have any stops you would like to request, he is very accommodating and charges only slightly by the hour for additional stops along the way. Fine Wine shopping? Senor Frogs? The Malecon? The grocery store for the toothpaste you forgot to pack? Something usually does come up. Enjoy your quick 30 minute zip through Marina Vallarta, the Hotel Zone with some skyscrapers reaching up to 30 stories in some cases, Downtown to cruise past the world-famous Malecon, Old Town along the charming Mexican cobble-stone streets and small restaurants & shops, Amapas past the millions of apartments cuddled together and then down the hill from the road past other multi-million dollar properties to the privately gated wooden automatic door. If you’re early (what were the chances!) and beat the 3pm villa check-in time, the staff will warmly greet and receive your luggage and walk it down into the villa. From there, you are free to roam Puerto Vallarta with your private driver, Noe!

Here, at the heart of the prestigious Conchas Chinas neighborhood, you will find yourself only 5 minutes from Old Town and Zona Romantica – which is the liveliest and busiest part of Puerto Vallarta, boasting the most action that you will likely find in Puerto Vallarta. If you wanted to, you could easily make the 15 minute walk from the villa along the nicest beach in town. A walking neighborhood for everybody, you will find everything from cafes to beachfront bar/lounges to fine dining. If you wish to explore further, you can walk further into town along the beachfront boardwalk through the newly finished Malecon 2 into the world-famous Malecon. This is Puerto Vallarta’s nightlife hub and is also heavily frequented during the days as well, being in the heart of historic downtown Puerto Vallarta. Here you will find an even greater selection of fine dining, bars and lounges to relax in. Explore and travel the local Mexican tequila shops and cigar stores between your visits into the local juice shop or beachwear store. Mingle with the locals and tourists alike along this vibrant strip of Mexican warmth. Prepare yourself for a villa check-in experience that will have you swept off your feet.
