We've made almost 20 trips to Mexico and are real afficionados of the country. Both of us are professional but very low profile folks who can adapt well. First of all, this hotel was great. Nice views of the lake. A bit expensive for the area of the country it was in but the rooms were decent. I have no complaints about the hotel but the surrounding area is exceedingly poor. Gangs of young men patrol the streets and put ropes to keep you from driving through and demand money. Most of the people are unemployed and angry about it. We were constantly over-charged for things or not given the right item (were substituted something cheaper instead) or not given the appropriate amount of change (shortchanged). People in the area see tourists as prey who are fit to be cheated and are unfriendly and even hostile. I think it was only a matter of luck that we did not meet serious trouble while in the Lake Catemaco area. I think the area is beautiful but not ready for travel yet until there are more jobs and opportunity for the people. I would not recommend this place for travel.
