Los Arcos is a B&B run by David, an expat from Virginia, who has converted the back-yard of his colonial home into a paradise with two guest rooms. There is a pool (available 24 hours) and David, the consummate host, appeared with beers for the swimmers, who were taking a mid-afternoon break from the heat with a dip in the shade. Breakfast (cooked by Lucas) was so filling and delicious I couldn't even think of eating again until late afternoon.
The decor is fabulous, but what was even more fabulous was the welcome (not only by David, but also his 3 little dogs and two big cats!). After only 2 nights at Los Arcos, I felt like I had had a full week's vacation! The house (I shudder to call it a hotel, because I really did feel like I was visiting an old friend) is situated an easy 5 - 10 minute walk from the central square in a very peaceful neighborhood. The rates were beyond reasonable and the hospitality was unbeatable. I strongly recommend popping in for a few relaxing days to recharge your batteries - whether you are living in Mexico or coming from abroad!
