A taste of local hospitality

AS AN INTERNATIONAL FAMILY, WE BRING YOU FAMILIAR SERVICE IN AN EXOTIC DESTINATION

 

MiraMar is owned and operated by Fernando and Kendra Garcia.  The Garcia family has been hosting guests for well over 30 years and it all started with a little palapa.  Much has changed, but we still greet every guest with a smile and a big HOLA!

Fernando was born in Yelapa and Kendra grew up on a farm in Kansas. We met while working in California and decided to move to Fernando’s hometown. Together we open up our homes and introduce people to the magic of Yelapa.

In January, 2010 we celebrated our wedding (here’s a short video) on the beach in Yelapa. In June, 2012 our daughter Kayden was born and in April, 2016 our son Tristan was born. What a special childhood they are experiencing here. We are thankful!

Kendra currently works planning events for the Stanford Alumni Association and responding to business emails while Fernando does the majority of greeting and checking in with guests and leads top rated adventures with MiraMar Excursions.

Sharing information about our wonderful little paradise is our passion, so be sure to contact us if you have any questions.  We look forward to meeting you!
