Casa Soledad is located in the quiet, little, community of Platanitos. Its dramatic setting on a tropical cliff offers a panoramic view of the Pacific ocean. It takes three or four minutes to walk down to the beach, where there's a choice between twelve "palapa" style restaurants that cook authentic Mexican dishes from each morning's catch & homemade tortillas. The villa is a blend of Spanish & Mediterranean architecture with a strong emphasis on outdoor living. Casa Soledad provides livig accomodations for up to six adults.
