THE COMMUNITY The developers of the Sierra del Mar Privileged Residential Community, Puerto Vallarta's award-winning gated hillside neighborhood, located on the scenic south shore just 12 minutes from downtown, above Playas Gemelas, proudly present "Sierra del Mar Ocean Front Residences at Los Arcos", their new gated ocean front community, two minutes further down the road to Mismaloya, between Paredon Colorado, and the natural landmark that first gave the destination its original name ("Puerto Las Penas"): the Los Arcos isles.
Sierra del Mar's Ocean Front Residences at Los Arcos consists of a never before developed 1/2 Kilometer (1/3 mi.) stretch of waterfront, that is singular due to its emerald-colored ocean, mature tropical trees and vegetation, spectacular granite boulders, and exotic coast line. This natural setting will be home for nine custom homes, 10 stair-stepped villas and 34 condominium residences located in four exclusive mid rise buildings.
The project's infrastructure includes two separate gated entryways, tranquil service drives with sidewalks, underground utilities and landscaped areas, ideal for taking nature walks. Amenities include a private beach club, with a palapa lounge, snack bar, sunning terrace, swimming pool, jacuzzi, and gym.
The first phase of custom homesites is sold out, with some of the residences currently under construction. Building of the first condominium residences, Arco Menor and Arco Mayor, is also underway.
Location | South Shore
Combine the boundless green jungle with the surf-splashed rocks of a coast interspersed with private coves, add a place to view the constantly changing palette of the bay, and you have the South Shore, where rugged, low-density residences, as well as villas and other homes, dot the coastline on the curving road toward Barra de Navidad. Many forms of adventure are abundant here, including mountain climbing, birding, scuba diving, snorkeling, whale watching, several canopy tours and any number of trips into the jungle and mountains by horse, all-terrain vehicle or even on foot. A rustic spa is hidden off the main road in nearby El Nogalito. Home to several hotels and time-share condominiums, the South Shore is nevertheless primarily residential.
