Playa Escondida is a secluded resort nested in a beachfront setting surrounded by hills covered with jungle. It is encompassed by nature, yet it’s safe and comfortable. The resort is located on the Nayarit Pacific Coast, Riviera Nayarit, 40 minutes from Puerto Vallarta International Airport. Guests have the opportunity to swim, surf, watch whales, and go horseback riding, snorkeling, practice yoga, and get a massage. With 25 different rooms, guests have the choice of a view of the ocean or jungle. If you are health conscious or if you're a sophisticated urban foodie, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and the variety of choices that the restaurant will offer.
This hidden beach, a few coves south of Sayulita, is one of the secret gems of the Nayarit coast, and home to the exquisite, nature-inspired organic wonderland that is the Playa Escondida Resort. A resort without signage, without a map, one that has grown intuitively on its lush, beachfront site, Playa Escondida is a retreat away from busy life.
