Hotelito Rincon de la Ceiba
Reviewed 3 February 2011

The whole notion of a cozy house by a lake comes to life at this little hotel, only two hours south of Puerto Vallarta, along the highway to Costalegre. The hotel is ideal for people interested in sports fishing, kayak, swimming, or simply having a relaxing time next to the water. Rincon de la Ceiba is located right on the edge of a reservoir / dam built in the 1980s, I think, over a town that had to be relocated.

Once we settled in, we were offered a choice of typical Mexican fare at very reasonable prices. The advantage of being next to a lake is that fresh catch is available every day, and quickly cooked to your liking, (either fried, or in Mexican ceviche style).

At night, a star-studded sky dominated the scene, along with a bonfire that kept us warm. On day two of our stay, the owner offered us a quick tour to the town of Tomatlán, only 20 minutes south, a typical small Mexican town worth exploring.

Didn't give sleep quality a full five-dot rating because of roosters and boat engines that can be heard early in the morning as fishermen get ready for their daily activities. It didn't bother me, but I can see how it would bother some. Easy solution: bring your earplugs!

There is no internet or cell phone signal at the hotel, so you will be completely able to relax from urban activities and responsibilities. The place is so affordable, it's worth taking over, as we did, and traveling with friends. What a memorable weekend!
