My stay at the Casa Descanso was great, the beds are comfortable and the rooms very clean. The casa is located on a dead-end street, so there is no traffic noise and you can relax on the patio over-looking the street without smelling the cars exhaust. Just 2 corners from the heart old Puerto Vallarta and minutes from the beach, the location is ideal to relax or participate in the city life when you want to.
The owner Marco is great at organizing daily tours of little known local beaches and other popular spots in his small van. The small size of the tours permits you to spend as much time as wanted in any place without being pressed for time. The areas visited have more of a local feel to them, compared to the overly touristic feel of most organized tours.
Street vendors are a great way to eat locally without spending a lot of money, for 37 pesos (about 3.25$CAN) you get 2 very good quesadillas. Very good restaurants are also available very close by if you want to have a nice meal. Complete access to the kitchen enables you to keep food costs to a minimum by cooking your own food.
Security at night is not a problem even for the single traveller; police are very present, especially during local holidays. Night-time entertainment is available in bars and clubs are located on the boardwalk (malecon).
Staying at the casa is a great way to get away from the drunken crowds of all-inclusive resorts and really taste the life in Mexico.
