A sister property to Casa Condominiums, El Cortez Villas are located on Mustang Island, four miles from Port Aransas, Texas, or from the other direction, fifteen miles from North Padre Island. The short drive from Corpus Christi is a scenic one as you cross the JFK Causeway (Park Road 22) over the Laguna Madre and head to Padre Island. The turn onto Highway 361 takes you across the Packery Channel toward Mustang Island, El Cortez and Port Aransas.

The Port Aransas Ferry System also provides access to Mustang Island from Aransas Pass. The ferry ride is a unique experience in itself and is free of charge, operating seven days a week twenty-four hours a day. During peak times such as holidays and the summer months visitors may experience a delay as the demand for the transportation service is increased.

The boardwalk provides convenient access to the beautiful sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and all of the fun in the sun activities you can imagine. In addition to swimming, sandcastle building, surfing, kite and boogie boarding, there are many other attractions in the area to provide for a very memorable vacation. Port Aransas offers a variety of shopping and dining experiences as well as charter fishing trips, dolphin watching excursions, music venues, and local artists. If you are interested there is a pottery studio where you can see potters at work or you can participate in glass classes offered by a local glass maker. There are special events such as the Texas Sand Fest featuring master sand sculptors and amateurs alike featured throughout the year. Corpus Christi, the “sparkling city by the sea”, also offers many attractions such as the USS Lexington Museum, Texas State Aquarium, Corpus Christi Science and History Museum and the Art Museum of South Texas.

Padre Island, home of the Padre Island National Seashores, provides many educational opportunities as it is home to a large variety of marine and terrestrial plants and animals including some threatened or endangered species. Birding is a major attraction of the area all year round providing a home to over 350 species of migratory and resident birds. As you approach the island from Corpus Christi, you cross the Laguna Madre via the John F. Kennedy Causeway. The Laguna Madre is one of six lagoons in the WORLD which has water saltier than ocean water! Because of this it has its own special ecosystem and is considered one of the natural wonders of North America. All of this and much, much more is within 30 miles of your selected Villa.

El Cortez Villas is an affordable way for you to explore the area and enjoy the comforts of home. You might even be convinced, like some of us have been that you want to make this your permanent home!
