Margo and Robert are great hosts, very accommodating and responsive to guests needs. Guests need to be conservation minded. Sin Duda is off the grid and depends on collected rain water for much of the water use. I like that aspect of the experience there. It really fits with the low key, calm and relaxed atmosphere that Margo and Robert have created. Robert designed and built this small and beautiful hotel. The rooms are charming and comfortable and what a library! If you forget to bring something to read, don't worry about it! the snorkeling from Sin Duda is really nice. We saw turtles, rays and beautiful parrot fish, among other colorful finned beings. We shopped from the grocery truck and enjoyed the best, freshest food imaginable that we cooked in our Sin Duda apartment. Our standard fare at the grocery store in the US sucks, by comparison - why do we stand for it????
We also loved the village of Xcalak. One of the best things about Xcalak for us was the Leaky Palapa restaurant. The food was sublime and I was reminded of the film, Babette's Feast, and the transformative experience of eating well . Great food, great owners, staff and atmosphere! Our waiter, Louis, became our good friend. You can also hire him to take you bird-watching.
