Excellent facility, location and Hosts!
We stayed a full month with Glenn and Debbie at their Casa in Guayabitos. We were there three weeks as a couple (only) and one week with nine other of our family members: four adults and five children, ages 3-11, in there three guest room B&B. We were all accommodated and comfortable. We enjoyed the pool every day, as well as the beach and bay (one block away) for swimming and sunset viewing. An easy walk for all. Mats, chairs, umbrellas and "boogie boards" are supplied by the hosts. Bring your own towel to take to the beach.
The three guest rooms are on the main floor-which includes: a guest(s) living room with cable tv and the (fantastic) guest's kitchen- which is outdoors adjacent to the pool and patio. Wi-fi is available and reliable. We found having "our own" kitchen valuable and a "deal maker" for our month long stay. We felt like we were in our own home...very comfortable.
Glenn and Debbie are the perfect and most gracious hosts, living privately on the upper level of the home. They made sure we had all that we needed, and did so without any intrusion. They maintain two bicycles (with baskets) for the guests to use, and we used them every day to ride to town for groceries, sight-seeing, laundry and meals. Downtown Guayabitos is about 3/4's of a mile ride on the road. 1/2 mile walk on the beach. A ride into downtown LaPenita (to the north) is a quick six minutes over the suspension bridge. Countless great places to eat of all menus and price levels. You could eat out every meal for a month and not eat at the same place twice. Although we preferred to walk or ride a bike; safe, reliable and convenient taxi service--if so desired/needed, is available 24/7 for about $2.50 a trip. :)
We also went whale watching (and had a great hour quite near the whales), fishing and boat trip to Chacala (a small town 10 miles north) for swimming and famous bar-b-que fish on the beach and up to San Blas for the tour of the national marine preserve. Debbie assisted us with all our travel needs. Debbie also holds a weekly cooking class in the outdoor kitchen that we enjoyed attending. Fantastic yoga classes, taught five days a week, by Agneta and Ezra are just three blocks away ($4.00/class).
After two months in Guayabitos this year, we left with tears in our eyes...hating to leave. We highly recommend Guayabitos, Casa de Pelicanos and being hosted by Glenn and Debbie. THANK YOU, Glenn and Debbie!
