This was the best place I stayed on my whole trip to Mexico!
First there's the extraordinary river view: Magnificent and unbeatable anywhere in town.
But, secondly, there's Chal, who runs the place, is a mine of information, and incredibly helpful.
I was in town off-season and without him I would have been lost. He knows where everything is, gives directions, is always on hand.... And he even took me to the train station next morning.
Rooms are clean and comfortable and the air conditioning works well. No question: staying at Chal's place makes a vist to El Fuerte a highlight of your trip!

Verdant gardens are abuzz with hummingbirds and many endemic birds may be viewed from the balconies. The owner, Chal, is an avid birder and his river float offers true birding with a spotting scope. The open trailer offers birding to other areas. ... more less
