Casa Tranquila - Affordable Hotel at the Beach
Casa Tranquila is one of the first places I stumbled onto when I moved to Mexico. In addition to being a cute, fairly quiet hotel only a block from the beach, they have a great used book store and coffee shop.
The owners, Joanne and Patricia, go out of their way to help guests with anything they need, from translation to booking tours. Joanne also has a massage studio on site and offers a first rate massage for only $450 pesos (about $45 USD).
The rooms are clean and comfortable. They have a nice pool for guest use. Guests who stay at Casa Tranquila can be found coming back year after year. Even now that I rent a house in Bucerias, I spend time at Casa Tranquila in the pool or having coffee in the beautiful, jungle-like courtyard. [more]
