Casa Pelon of Playa Marcella is by far the nicest bed and breakfast I have seen in all my year of traveling. It was a pleasant and relaxing change of pace from staying in hostels most of my trip. Wake up to the sound of the waves just 100 meters form your bedroom door, a great outdoor patio/living room/kitchen, and real laid back vibes from the man himself, Mark 'Pelon'.
I spend a full week there, enjoying some of the best tacos, smoked meet, and by far the best mustard I will ever have. The house is beautiful and classic, decorated by a cool collection of art from the locals, including a small but neat collection of ancient Indigenous stones found in the mountains above. The night life around Marcella is relaxed, there is a great restaurant right on the beach front run by a really nice Nica family, and on rare occasion a live band rolls through for some evening entertainment. I highly recommend Casa Pelon for anyone looking for a more secluded, safe, and cleaner beach to hangout on. The prices are great, the serene beach is priceless, and transport into town is close, and easily accessible for anyone.
