Situated just 10 miles northwest of Puerto Vallarta's Licenciado Gustavo Díaz Ordaz International Airport, Villa La Estancia Riviera Nayarit overlooks the sparkling waters of Banderas Bay. Guests say they come to this Villa La Estancia for its relaxing atmosphere – a massage at the Tatewari Spa, a soak in the two-story pool or a refreshing cocktail at the swim-up pool bar can melt away any lingering stress. Those seeking more active pursuits can find ample outdoor activities as well. Guests can swing a racket on two championship tennis courts or a club on one of many nearby golf courses. As for dining, guests can choose from formal dining at La Casona or casual poolside fare at La Parilla (or head next door to the resort's sister property, Villa del Palmar Flamingos, for more options). And when the sun goes down, lodgers can escape to their colonial- and hacienda-inspired villa or guest room; all accommodations are appointed with L'Occitane bath products, minibars, flat-screen TVs and balconies or terraces.
