Introduction to Flamingos
Flamingos in Nuevo Vallarta, is a mega-development situated alongside the longest beach and one of the most beautiful beaches in Banderas Bay. The beach stretches for ten kilometres from the Ameca River, (which is also the border between the states of Nayarit and Jalisco, the state in which Puerto Vallarta is located), all the way to the town of Bucerias. Flamingo's beach is lined with large hotels and condominium developments, with the Flamingo's 18-hole golf course situated just behind. Shopping is close by at the main entrance just off highway #200, at the Comercial Mexican shopping centre.
In addition, Flamingos sits alongside several natural bodies of water, such as the La Vejiga, El Quelele and La Cortada Lagoons, in which flora and fauna thrives. From local and migrating bird species to crocodiles and sea turtles, the combination of luxurious vacationing and immediate access to local wildlife is one of Flamingos' most alluring features.
The entrance to Flamingos is clearly indicated along the Carr. 200 highway. For people arriving from points south, it is also possible to access Flamingos through Nuevo Vallarta.
Neighborhoods & Neighboring Regions
Flamingos forms part of several beachfront communities located north of the Ameca River (which is also the state limit between Jalisco and Nayarit) beginning with Nuevo Vallarta, before Flamingos, and continuing northbound with Bucerias.

Stretching for almost two miles, Flamingos beach is a great complement to the resorts located right next to it. It is not uncommon to spot kite surfers chasing the wind; and in season, sea turtles burying their eggs in the sand as part of their annual reproduction cycle.
Where to Stay
There are several luxurious resorts located right on the Flamingos beach, making it an ideal destination for families with children, and golf enthusiasts.
As one of the fastest growing, most successful real estate investment regions in the state of Nayarit, the mega development of Flamingos is known best for the full spectrum of real estate homes and condominiums it has to offer, including golf courses and marinas. Flamingos homes and condominiums are situated along the longest beach in the bay and the fairways of the golf courses. There are fairway homes and condos, beachfront homes (but mostly condos) and canal-side opportunities. If access to the ocean is important to you, as well as golf, this area is probably your best option. Prices are mid-range for the most part, and there’s plenty to choose from.
