Splash into Boca de Iguanas ecoretreat with sizzling summer specials

Mexico’s best kept beach resort secret delivers affordable vacations in touch with Mother Nature

BOCA DE IGUANAS, Mexico (May 18, 2010) – Mexico’s relaxed Pacific Coast eco-resort, Boca de Iguanas, brings sizzle to summer with rates that bring guests in touch with nature and active adventure without breaking the bank.

From July 1 to August 23, 2010 at $188 US for a standard and $215 US for a deluxe (**taxes included),  enjoy a stay in one of 12 rooms, fresh made-to-order hot breakfast, daily happy hour, unlimited use of boogie boards, and an in-room welcome bowl of fresh, seasonal tropical fruit. Two children under 8 years eat, stay and play for FREE when sharing a room with their parents. Boca de Iguanas features 10 suites in contemporary Mexican design that are “dialed in” with air conditioning and U.S. DISH network satellite television, while two perfect beach cabanas right on the sand offer absolute seclusion and ultimate connection with Mother Nature without unnecessary distractions – no telephone, AC or television in these romantic suites!

Located 40 minutes north of Manzanillo International Airport (ZLO) along the rugged Costalegre, the under-the-radar ecological Boca de Iguanas, which first opened in January 2008, is an eco-chic meets modern day contemporary adventure hideaway in a largely untouched natural surrounding that affords plenty of chances for amazing chance encounters with raw nature. The resort recycles plastics, composts organics and reuses grey water on the abundant gardens throughout the property.

Vacations at Boca de Iguanas are all about experiencing nature and returning back to the basics. Primordial jungle envelopes much of the property, and shelters a delicate mangrove ecosystem that flows through its heart. It is not uncommon to spy more than two dozen iguanas sunning themselves on tree branches overhanging the mangrove. Resident American crocodiles are often spotted swimming through the waters underneath the wooden bridge that spans the mangrove. During the winter months, guests participate in sea turtle liberation at dusk, helping release protected newborns that hatched earlier in the day from relocated nests guarded on property. An onsite 50-foot natural rock climbing wall offers a fun scramble and rappel session steps from the sparkling ocean. Surfing, sea kayaking and boogie boarding in the frothing waters brings out the kid in anyone. And evening beach bonfires beneath the canopy of brilliant stars — while roasting marshmallows for gooey s’mores — reminds us why camping out is something we don’t do nearly enough.

Yet living the simple life doesn’t mean sacrificing comfort. The Boca de Iguanas beach club with infinity edge swimming pool boasts an al fresco restaurant and bar under a soaring palapa surrounded by towering coconut palms, with toes-in-the-sand dining overlooking more than 1,000 feet of cream sand beach. Guests feast on wholesome traditional Mexican fare: hearty chilaquilles breakfast nachos, fresh catch-of-the-day from the local fishermen’s coop, shrimp bathed in “aguachile” sauce, and even the simplest crisp lettuce salad bursts to life with a rainbow hue of julianned peppers.

Located 40 minutes north of Manzanillo International Airport (ZLO), the multi-use development of Boca de Iguanas features houses, condominiums, and a boutique hotel and spa in a fusion of Mexican architecture with classic colonial hacienda, contemporary modern design, and eclectic “jungle-chic” rustic areas dedicated to Mother Nature. The stylish 12-room escape found on a pristine beach along Mexico’s Costalegre offers the perfect blend of modernity and rusticity inspired by the magical natural surroundings of this ecologically sound development. At the heart of the ecoresort is a rare mangrove ecosystem, which flows through the property and is home to countless species including crocodiles and iguanas. A beach club serves up hearty Mexican fare, while a freeform infinity edge pool competes only with the spectacular beachfront which provides hours of adventure activity.
