We arrived in Mancora with no place in mind to stay. We took a ride down into Las Pocitas (Mancora Chico) about a 5 minute mototaki ride away from downtown Mancora. It was the off season so many of the hotels and bungalows were closed for construction or the prices were still outrageous for the quality (believe me, we looked at plenty of places). We stumbled upon Las Balsas. As soon as we walked in, the manager, Al greeted us and made us feel at home. He speaks both Spanish and English very well. The private and spacious bungalow with a porch and hammock was extremely affordable. The beach front was beautiful. For a little extra money, Al had the cook make us a fabulous lunch one day and dinner the next! The breakfast (included) was amazing as well. We wanted to stay somewhere relaxing, quiet, but close enough to town, clean, and affordable. We found it all at Las Balsas. When we return, we will stay here again no doubt.
