There are few of the many lovely Latin America Villas that I have visited that can compare with the charm, grace and ambience of Casa La Vista, which is perched on a cliff overlooking Banderas Bay outside of Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico. It’s a 5 bedroom, 5 1/2 bath, “Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous” style vacation rental, which belongs to the employer of a friend of mine. Typically renting from $1000 – $2300 a night and including a heated infinity pool overlooking the Pacific with a swimup bar and a jacuzzi, along with a huge outdoor partially shaded patio which overlooks the bay, it was a dream come true to be an invited non-paying guest. The house is magnificent, the view is stunning and the staff is impeccable. The meals provided by the in-house chefs were comparable to those found in the finest restaurants. The picturesque view of Mismaloya, setting for the classic film Night Of The Iguana  starring Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton, provides constant change as the sea, the ocean traffic and the sky seem to co-ordinate to keep the viewer enchanted. The staff were wonderful and the Villa came complete with kitchen staff, maids and launderess.To say that I was enamored of my stay is an understatement. I highly recommend Casa La Vista.
