Boca de Iguanas_Costalegre_Manzanillo_MX_dinner7_bocadeiguanasWith an abundance of coastal locations and pristine beaches across the country, it’s just a question of when we hear about new resort openings in Mexico. In the age of personalized service and caring hotels, it’s a breath of fresh air to see more eco responsible hotels and resorts across Mexico. Especially the smaller boutique properties that can accommodate the needs of the travelers seeking unique travel experience in an unspoiled location. Boca de Iguanas certainly fits the bill!

Situated in a secluded bay along Mexico’s Costalegre 40 minutes North of Manzanillo International Airport (ZLO), Boca de Iguanas is the area’s first true luxury eco resort, offering an ultra-chic vacation in a pristine ecological setting – with equal portions of stimulation and relaxation, without skimping on the luxury trappings.

An adventure activity menu includes an onsite 50-foot high natural rappeling wall, ocean kayaking, birdwatching and jungle hiking. The beach club restaurant offers a healthy and tasty menu featuring the freshest local ingredients. And the Boca West beach bar with fresh drinks, delicious margaritas and a great variety of snacks will satisfy your entire vacation. And there’s the exquisite Alma Spa & Wellness Center, a holistic wellness center to nurture guests’ body, mind and spirit.

Overlooking Tenacatita Bay and steps from the beach, the eco-chic haven has 10 “jungle suites” with outdoor rain showers, private plunge pools and ultimate disconnect (read: no television or telephones.)

10 modern rooms in contemporary Mexican design overlook an endless beach, and two quaint beach cabanas await on the sand mere feet from the water’s edge.

Enjoy the beautiful beach, swim in the free form infinity pool, relax in the jacuzzi, and dine al fresco on a patio overlooking the Pacific ocean. Dance in the plaza to Mexican mariachis (only during special events) and gaze upon the night stars as never before. Live it up in Mexico as you’ve always imagined.

Environmental stewardship at Boca de Iguanas gets all kudos: cars are banned, water is solar-heated, and “bio-climatic architecture” incorporates natural light and airflow. The resort’s seasonsal “Sea Turtle Nursery” keeps an eye on local nesting grounds, and can also guide guests to the best places to spy the spawning creatures. Beyond turtle tourism, you can take a catamaran sail, or play with the ponies at the nearby Costa Careyes polo club, one of Mexico’s premier eco-chic resorts.

    • Wow! I had no idea there was such a cool spot down the street from my place! I am in LaManzanilla. I will check it out the next time I am in town. My place is far more rustic, yet just as tropical. Nice post and nice pics!
