Quinta Lili is one of those little places you'd rather people didn't hear about -- it's such a treasure whenever you're in need of some absolute tranquil bliss. But keeping the secret wouldn't be fair to your wonderful host Adelina. She's endlessly cheerful and always helpful with the latest great dining and excursion tips. This is the way to experience Mexico away from those all-inclusive bubbles that can sometimes seem like some little Canadian enclave transplanted to a private beach. Adelina and the tireless Magda prepare a different authentico breakfast for you every morning, steps from your room and the small, refreshing pool. Only five rooms here, so it's not at all unusual to have the place to yourself at times. This area of PE, Rinconada, is removed from the somewhat tired sprawl of Zicatela and the Adoquin, which remain just a $3 cab ride away. A better option is the great little strip of restaurants and shops very close by. Try Luna Rosa for pizza, Cafe Cito for coffee and mango cream rolls, and Turtle Bay for shrimp cocktail and fish. Take any excursion on offer to Manialtepec Lagoon. We've done the birding tour (unforgettable) and this last visit were fortunate to experience the bio-luminescence one evening -- sort of like Life of Pi's glowing sea but without the help of Industrial Light and Magic. You dip yourself into a real magical mystery of nature.
We love Quinta Lili and Adelina is an absolute gem. It's impossible not to immediately start planning another return visit.
