Greetings fellow Permutated Beings! My wife Holly and I are selling our Permaculture dream 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 foward to the next phase that is closer to city friends and attractions, medical services, etc.
On offer is a 45 acre spread with significant infrastructure located just 300 yards from one of the most pristine, swimmable beaches anywhere. This property would be ideally suited to a group looking to form an Eco-village, or for anyone interested in creating their own private abundance with significant eco-tourism income potential.
This amazing property features numerous, buildable ocean vistas and established guest facilities ideally suited for further development as a world-class yoga retreat or education center. Perched high on a west facing hill is a gorgeous, “hippi-lux” cob house with dipping pool and spectacular sunset views, plus caretaker/guest cottage, and basic facilities for goats, chickens, ducks, horses, etc. The entire property is fenced and has been used for free-ranging our goats for many years.
In addition to the main beach, the property is also a short walk from a smaller, hidden 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 roadways, a one-acre tropical food forest, kitchen gardens, two hundred moringa trees, approximately fifty coco, mango and banana tress, a traditional Temezcal sweat lodge, and significant additional infrastructure such as a community building with bathrooms, bio-digester, storage bodegas, and outdoor kitchen dining facilities capable of hosting 25 or more people.
As I’ve written about at my 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, and an international airport, in Puerto Vallarta.
Finally, we have a second, abutting, fifty-five acre parcel, with a modest sized adobe house. Our intention is to remain in the Puerto Vallarta area and return to the second parcel to visit occasionally. We would enjoy maintaining an affiliation with whatever project follows, but that is not a condition of the sale. The listing price is 2.9 million US, however we will discount, and possibly provide partial financing, for a buyer that is planning to continue our vision of wholistic land management, and being of service to the local community.

Wow!! You’re place really does sound like paradise, and super in alignment with what we are looking for My husband Johnny and our two young kiddos (1.5 and 4) are looking for a sustainable farming opportunity, where we can tend the land, connect to culture and community and teach our children these ways.
I am an acupuncturist and studying to be a home birth midwife, so I still need to figure out if I could pursue my medical profession in Mexico. My husband grew up on a farm and has a green thumb and passion for homesteading.
Is there any chance you may be open to us staying / renting / caretaking your property for a few months this winter with the intention of buying if we fall in love with it all?
Are there any other water sources on land, like creek? How is the municipal water? May you share what town you are in? We are surfers, are there any waves nearby? What kind of fruit trees / edibles are there? We love moringa !!
