This incomparable thirty-seven-acre property offers a mix of rolling hills, ocean vistas, spectacular artisanal residence plus guest cottage, plunge pools, gardens, a one-acre fruit & nut forest, commercial retreat hosting facilities, grid-tied solar electric, and extensive water distribution and storage infrastructure.

We are excited to announce the sale of our Permaculture dream ranch and Sustainability Education Center on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. For a dozen years, we have worked at creating a true paradise on earth and have had an incredible run hosting Natural Building, Permaculture, and Plant Medicine retreats, raising animals, and truly living the life (read: The Mexico Diaries: A Sustainable Adventure, available on Amazon/Kindle), but now, ambling toward our 70’s, we are looking forward to the next phase of life that is closer to city friends and attractions, medical services, etc. in nearby Puerto Vallarta.

On offer is a 37+ acre spread (15 hectares) with significant infrastructure located just 300 yards from one of the most pristine, swimmable beaches anywhere! This idyllic property is a mix of pasture, view hills, and forest that would be perfectly suited to a group looking to form an Eco-Community, or for anyone interested in creating their own private abundance with significant farming or eco-tourism income potential. The asking price for the property is $1,900,000U.S.D.

This property features two beautiful residences, numerous buildable ocean vistas, and established, rustic but lovely guest facilities poised for further development as a world-class retreat or education center, plus plenty of good bottom land for agricultural use. The entire property is fenced and has been used for free-ranging our goats for many years.

Perched high on a west-facing hill of the 1st parcel is a gorgeous hippie-lux cob house with a dipping pool and spectacular sunset ocean & mountain views, plus caretaker/guest cottage. This property also features a four-room guest house, community building with bathrooms, kitchen + outdoor dining area, a 30ftx30ft ocean-view yoga platform (needs resurfacing)dipping pool, grid-tied solar, solar water pumping, and significant additional infrastructure for hosting groups of 20 or more participants (over the years, have hosted numerous retreats of up to 25 participants). These facilities could also function as the perfect “landing pad” for a startup community looking to host or transition prospective members.

In addition to the main beach, the property is also a short walk from a smaller, hidden Lover’s Beach, a turtle research station, and a quintessential Mexican fishing village. This incomparable opportunity is fully titled and has municipal water & grid-tied electric, existing internal roadways, a one-acre tropical food forest, kitchen gardens, two hundred moringa trees, fifty coco, mango, and banana trees. Finally and importantly, we are also happy to report that we have enjoyed consistently great relations with the local, welcoming community of Mayto over the 15 years that we’ve been here.

As written about our WordPress blog Sustainable Mexico, there are many significant advantages to pursuing sustainability south of the US border (“the fun side of the wall!”), including ridiculously low property taxes (we pay $250US a year!), year-round sunshine for producing solar and growing food, inexpensive hired help, extremely relaxed business licensing, easy building permitting, no building codes, and no heating/cooling needs other than fans in summer. It is also an easy draw for attracting volunteer help and is just two hours away from numerous vibrant farmer’s markets, excellent affordable health care, and an international airport in Puerto Vallarta.

Financing Offered! We are open to partial financing for a buyer planning to continue our vision of holistic land management and being of service to the local community.
