Sunset at Casa Laret
Sunset at Casa Laret
Rancho Leonero is known for its laid-back atmosphere, beautiful calm beaches and its old school Mexican charm and serenity. Casa Laret has certainly provided us with our own little piece of paradise over the years.

Wonderful sandy beaches and rocky reefs lie directly in front of Casa Laret and extend up to and in front of the Rancho Leonero resort hotel.

Stroll the vacant beaches and search for the abundant sea glass and seashells along the shoreline.

The water temperature varies from the low 70’s in the winter to 90 degrees in the summer.

Wonderful snorkeling is available in 4’-12’ of water. A large array of fish, rays, eels and sea life are abundant year round.

We set up our “beach camp” in front of the house and ferry food, drinks and people to and from the house with our quad or truck and make a day of snorkeling, shore line searches, fishing or just sunning. It is great fun.

Beach Camp

Rancho Leonero is super safe as it has a 24 hour manned entry gate and periodic 24 hour patrols by the ranch security staff. We routinely leave our beach camp set up for a week or so at a time (as do all of our neighbors) so that it can be enjoyed when the urge hits.

Casa Laret is a 50-minute drive from the San Jose del Cabo International Airport up Mexico Hwy. 1 (known as Mex-1). Simply ask the Rancho Leonero taxi service to meet you and your guests at the arrival doors of the airport and within 1 hour they will drop you off at your front door and you will be enjoying magnificent views off of the rear terrace while sipping your favorite beverage. You will also avoid the hustle and bustle of Cabo San Lucas.

The Resident Iguana
The Resident Iguana
The resident iguana has been with us for the last 10 years. He comes out when the sun is hot and surveys the yard and his domain. He comes with the house and is harmless and fun to watch!

His home is in the tile roof over the casita above the garage. He eats from the bougainvillea bushes abutting the roof and other vegetation in our garden. We do feed him left over vegetables, broccoli, salad and soft fruit from time to time which he seems to enjoy.

We have seen him get gradually larger and larger.

We have seen him with a few smaller females but we have seen no kids as of yet.
