Where you’ll be

Santa María del Oro, Nayarit, Mexico

The tranquility, the peaceful atmosphere, and the beauty of the environment is very relaxing and enjoyable. Only ourselves (2 hosts) and up to 15 guests share the outdoor common areas. It is advisable to bring some food since the restaurants are 5 minutes by car and grocery stores and vegetables 15 minutes. We recommend La Mojarra de Samao restaurant and bar, located at the entrance of Koala Bungalows for delicious food and margaritas.

I am a laid back person of British origin with a sense of humour. I live totally in the present and I am happier when I am travelling and visiting places that I have never visited before. I have visited many parts of the world and have had many diverse and interesting experiences. I now live with my mexican wife at Rancho La Querencia near to the beautiful Santa María del Oro lake in Nayarit. We take every oportunity to explore places of interest in Mexico and other countries. We like to experience the customs and way of life in the places we visit, eat in popular restaurants and get to know the locals.
