Cabañas el Cielito, Cabo Corrientes, Mexico
Just a 45 minute bus ride from Puerto Vallarta, and an hour taxi from Tuito, sits a little piece of paradise facing the Pacific Ocean.
While in Mexico, Cody was actively searching for places off the beaten path when he found Cabo Corrientes (Cape Current) appropriately named after the powerful open ocean that creeps up steadily onto the 22km stretch of undeveloped beach.
Upon further research, he found Cabanas El Cielito, a 9 cabana getaway overlooking this vast sprawling ocean.
El Cielito is the type of place that one visits if they are craving solitude, beauty, and nature.
The staff are laid back and unlike many mega resort, you don’t have people constantly in your face pressured to please, leaving you with an uneasy feeling.
If there was something we needed, we simply asked the kitchen staff and they were happy to provide it for us.
Our comfortable cabana was sweet, simple, and rustic. Our bed was fitted with a mosquito net, the shower was hot, and the view from our porch was beautiful.
But like most visitors to El Cielito, we didn’t come for the cabanas.
We spent most of our time by the beautiful curved pool overlooking the ocean and Mexico’s famous agave plants, watching the palm trees sway in the wind, and listening to the powerful waves crash onto the beach.
The sunsets every evening provided us with gorgeous entertainment, and that is all that we needed.
Our time at El Cielito was exactly what we needed after 9 nights of camping and 4 nights at a party hostel.
