We just returned from our 9th stay at La Posada de los Raqueros. Obviously we love the place. This area of Mexico is a true jewel on the Pacific. Are you are looking for long stretches of sparsely populated beaches, with no jet skis or parasailing? Do you want to follow an oyster diver off of the beach and having them shucked and on your plate within a half hour of them being harvested? Here you will find wonderful friendly local people, perfect weather (not a drop of rain in the 9 years we have been coming in Feb) and long tranquil days, without TV or telephones. If this area sounds good to you then you can't pick a better place to stay than Raqueros. It has to best location in the area, on a beautiful bay, wonderfully landscaped grounds and a great and caring staff. Falling asleep to the sounds of the waves on comfortable beds is just heaven. I can't recommend this place enough. We will be back next year, and the next and the next and.....well you get the picture.
