Casa Don Juan is a Mexico villa rental that pulls out all stops. Enjoy life as the old-time monarchs did in Mexico ages ago and don’t lift a finger. Your own personal maid Lidia will make sure that this is the best, trouble-free family vacation Mexico out there. Wake up in the morning with the smell of coffee waiting provocatively, Lidia will cook you the homemade breakfasts, lunches and dinners that you ask for, using the fresh local fruits, vegetables and fish. The staff at Punta El Custodio shop the local markets for the best products and she will prepare it excellently and to your taste. She also squeezes the best fresh orange juice that you will ever have and all that you want. We promise you a different all-inclusive family vacation in Mexico!

Casa Don Juan is open to its gardens and forest in any direction. You can sit in the living room and watch the changing light in the gardens  in three directions, or enjoy the dappled sunlight or moonlight from seven terraces. When you wish to wander, all of Punta El Custodio is a botanical garden and you can take a walk around our safe private vacation community, meet other vacationers like you, and enjoy the variety of landscapes and sea vistas as well as its community pool. From there, enjoy the view, while you swim or lounge by the beautiful pool. You will be captivated by mesmerizing surf breaks, a parade of leaping dolphins and surging whales and squadrons of pelicans and graceful frigate birds. The sunsets are stunning from the Point and most guests watch them from the poolside, with a cool drink in hand.

Punta El Custodio is the middle of a vast and unspoiled region of Mexico’s coast, where jungle covered mountains meet the sea in inspiring cliffs and miles of pristine beaches.  On foot, the beach is only minutes away from Casa Don Juan and offers miles of sand for world-class surfing. The estuary, home to 150 species of migratory birds, is a protected national treasure and accessible right from the shores of Punta El Custodio. Relax away the stress created from everyday life and step into a real life dreamscape. Watch the beautiful waterfowl and aquatic wildlife that thrive in this vacation wonderland. Come between November and May and see the spectacular display of massive whales swimming next to gracefully playful dolphins. These are the best all-inclusive vacations in Mexico..

Whether it is the wildlife, relaxing by the pool or on one of Casa Don Juan’s terraces, the surfing or the panoramic views offered by this fairy tale all-inclusive family rental that draws you in, this is a Mexican vacation that will leave you satisfied and wanting more, all at the same time. This is one of the few family, all-inclusive villa rentals that offer an enchanted escape of this perfection, possibility and pleasure. There is so much to take in, leaving behind fabulous memories that will last a lifetime.

For groups of more than eight, we recommend a joint rental with immediately adjacent Casa Colibrí, which has a beautiful enclosed patio and pool, great for lounging on the cooler winter days. It also boasts a huge dining room table and Lidia and Moña work happily together to produce huge feasts for all to enjoy together.

A Personal Note from the Owner of Casa Don Juan: We love the indoor/outdoor quality of the house, which as you can see, has very few walls. The climate and the safety allow for that, and we wander in and out without opening a door. There’s space to be together and many places to find privacy or solitude. Mexicans appreciate Casa Don Juan because it has the elegant, restrained sensibilities of a Mexican manor house, with fine antique and artistic details.

Please read our FAQ page with info about what to do from the moment you arrive at Puerto Vallarta International Airport, driving directions, safety in Mexico, total cost of your stay etc. etc.
