We stopped here when travelling to Loreto with relatives. The owners are pals with the La Luna hotel, so as we were 3 couples and la Luna was full, we were were lodged at Hotel 1697.
The rooms were clean and located just of the main square. The location is handy for cafes and has a charming restaurant.
We were helped by Alberto the owner of La Luna to find a "handy boatman" to take us into the Marine national park. The two trips we made were fantastic, we saw Blue whales, , sea lions, and hundreds of dolphins.
