If your idea is heaven is resort row in Cancun, you can stop reading now.
But if you love real Mexico and long for unspoiled places and people, you've hit the jackpot. And Hotel San Felipe is a big part of what makes this destination special.
The hotel is full of character and sea breezes, but it's spotless, with excellent, comfortable beds. Just outside the hotel, fishing boats come and go. The air is full of birds. Across the lagoon you can spot flamingos. There is nothing to do -- except, of course, watch the spectacular birdlife, gather seashells on the beaches, fish, talk to the lovely locals, explore the Ria Lagartos ecosystem. I guess it all depends on your idea of fun. I call it heaven.
Your host is Jesus. He doesn't speak much English, but if you know Spanish, he's a treasure trove of information. He will also take you in his boat for fishing or beaches. His wife runs the hotel and she does a great job. The rooms have fluffy clean towels and bottled water, and I must repeat this: real comfortable beds. She will prepare a decent breakfast or supper for you, not haute cuisine but good and tasty.
To book a room, you need to either call or send an email to email@example.com. Ask for a room overlooking the boat harbor. If you want more info about this place, feel free to contact me!
