directions, maps & hours

directions to Beach Dog Boarding & Salon

From the Puerto Vallarta Airport head north on Hwy 200 (towards Guadalajara) about 30 miles.

The map above is very accurate if you follow the red line. Take a photo of it if it's your first time coming to our place. I would not suggest coming in the back road on your first visit, especially during the rainy summer season. Difficult to find with no street signs.

Turn west off the Hwy onto the main street in Lo de Marcos at the OXXO store near kilometer 108, across the street from the Pemex station. Go straight approximately .6 miles to two blocks before the beach (or left after the plaza, then right like shown on the map) and turn LEFT on Camino a Las Minatas. The street name is probably not listed at the turn, but you will see a blue sign that says "Playa Los Venados", or maybe Ron's RV Park or Cruz Maria RV Park, all to the LEFT.

Continue down that long, straight, nicely paved road (Camino a Las Minatas) about .4 miles. When you cross the 2nd tope (speed bump) on the right you will see El Caracol Bungalows with five big water lily ponds. Go a few yards further and make a LEFT on Universidad, just before the garbage bins on the left side. There is usually one of my signs on the pole. If you start curving up a hill .... you've missed the left turn at Universidad.

Continue 3 blocks on Universidad until you can turn right. Go to the RIGHT one block to Calle Maestros where there is a big brick wall with, hopefully, my sign still on it and turn LEFT. Go to the far end of the block and we are on the RIGHT. Our facility is surrounded by a large brick wall with big black metal gates and a beautiful garden out front.
