Gated Enclave Features RJT II Course

Talk to anyone who knows Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and they’ll wax nostalgic about the 1980s, when newly built Pacific beachfront condos were dirt cheap in Nuevo Vallarta, a snowbird enclave just three miles from the airport and five miles from downtown.

An analog to Nuevo Vallarta is now springing in another Pacific Coast town, Mazatlán. The Estrella del Mar Resort, is four miles from the airport and 10 miles from Mazatlán’s city center.

Mazatlán (population 438,000), lying 200 miles north of Vallarta, often is overlooked as a Mexican beach destination because of the scarcity of nonstop flights, and because fares from the U.S. haven’t yet dropped. (Southwest Airlines hasn’t begun service there yet.)

But for retirees and snowbirds searching for their place in the sun south of the border, Mazatlán, because of its affordability and terrific weather, is well worth a scouting trip this winter.
