Colima has just what’s needed to make this small State the smart choice for Concierto Resorts. It alligns with the company’s vision and principles and supports the research the and feedback received.
Last week we took some ribbing from readers about the “l e n g t h” of our last blog. Most explain they read the blogs on hand held devices and therefore need them to be shorter and more manageable. We do recognize that when we start commenting about Mexico, it’s pretty free flowing but this is our promise to dial it back!
This is the first in a series of “short blogs” to show how all the information we’ve gathered is connected. Phrases that support the feedback, research, vision and principles are in bold print.
The sections of the Concierto Resorts website shows how all the data is aligned to address the needs of our future neighbours. Please take a look. https://www.conciertoresorts.com (highlight & right click)

And the Survey Says…
#1 “Value!” People won’t accept very poor conditions to get a lower-priced vacation package but a large majority do say they’ll crunch their pre-trip priorities to stretch their dollars. Current home-owners state that price is the main factor when deciding between final options. It’s even more important than ‘location’ in several cases.
#2 “The Need for Interesting Activities!” Kids and adults alike need a lot of activities to keep things fresh. A steady diet of a pool, novel and even margaritas loses the impact after a week. (1) getting bored, (2) not enough interesting things to do for all age levels and (3) being faced with way too many high-priced options are the biggest concerns.
#3 “Direct Travel!” With air travel, a ‘direct to destination’ flight is a priority for all. Time lost during air transfers is the most negative aspect in this area. Keeping children happy is second and lost luggage, 3rd.
#4 “Essential Services and Shopping Available!” This section has the greatest number of aspects. It includes the expected areas such as medical, groceries, restaurants, banking and internet/phone, etc. Others include veterinary, legal, volunteer opportunities, car rentals/taxi service, movie theatres and home care services.
#5 “Peace & Quiet!” It’s somewhat surprising this is in the top five! Granted, people express they really enjoy excitement and special events but also want to chill out! They need a calming place with minimal noise and activity, without having to shut themselves inside their home.

We Just Need a Postal Code
The first three phases for Concierto Resorts is planned for construction on 12.5 acres (5 hectares) of oceanfront property. It’s located 500 metres down the beach from the Hamlet of Tecaunillo and just ten kilometers from the vibrant city of Tecoman.
At Concierto’s secure, gated community residents enjoy two kilometers of beautiful, black volcanic-sand beach. The property lies within a vast, lush, palm tree plantation and this private location is a huge asset to the creation of the serene atmosphere we envision for the Community!
Spend Time Relaxing not Transferring
Colima’s “Playa de Oro International Airport” welcomes an ever increasing number of airlines. Most feature direct flights from origins in Western Canada, USA and Mexico with flying times under 5 hours. Some have seasonal schedules and it’s hoped the increasing consumer’s demands will result in expanding flight seasons.
The Playa de Oro terminal is small and because the landings are so well scheduled, rarely do two flights arrive at the same time. The efficient Customs process gets folks through Security screening quickly and happily heading off to Paradise.
It’s a direct drive on an excellent multi-lane highway from the airport to Concierto with the last 10 kms feeling especially theraputic! Open the car windows, turn up the Spanish music and put on a happy face as you pass under a canopy of stately trees while enjoying the fragrant bougainvilleas.
