A wonderful mix of rustic accommodations, and, high-end places to stay. Old town is an adventure to explore. People are friendly. Great fishing! We stayed at Villa Mexicana; a small venue that was not all-inclusive at the time, so that we could explore the more...More

This picture looks exactly like the bay does, night after night. It's an amazing place to visit. Warm climate, slow pace, and very friendly people who are appreciative you are there as tourists. The water is warm to wade or boogie board and snorkel and...More

This is the fourth location I have visited in Mexico. My favorite so far. It is as if the clock is in slow motion and time suspended or in neutral compared to other places. Entire place was clean and laid back. Vendors were not aggressive...More

Lovely setting in a very laid back resort. Pleasant walk along the Playa del Pescador. Very interesting watching the fishermen selling their catch on the beach. Inhabitants very friendly and helpful.
