About David Martinez
We have been visiting Mexico since 1974 and have always enjoyed the people, culture and traditions of the country. Patti and I co-founded La Casa de los Niños in 2005, an after school enrichment program, for the children of Lo de Marcos to enjoy free of charge! The project is a registered US Non Profit Charity organization.
David Martinez purchased this Bungalow in 2004
Why David Martinez chose Lo De Marcos
We feel fortunate to have our second home in the wonderful Pueblo of Lo de Marcos. The people are friendly and have maintained the Mexican traditions and customs. It is off the beaten tourist track with a wonderful sandy beach.
What makes this Bungalow unique
While in Lo de Marcos we enjoy the slower paced lifestyle, walking on the beach, swimming in the warm ocean waters, and walking into town enjoying balmy evenings. We also enjoy working with the children, staff and volunteers at La Casa de los Niños.

Beautiful home on the beach
Highly recommended. Dave and Patti were very gracious and accommodating. Beautiful beachfront location, everything you could possibly need. We will definitely stay again!
We look forward to your next stay at Casa Lo de Marcos!
Very well maintained property! Ideal location close to town yet private. Aesthetically pleasing decor and comfy beds add to the overall comfort. An easy walk north down the beach to bird watch and going south is a nice swim/boogie board spot. David (owner) and Clarita (caretaker) were great to work with. I would highly recommend this Casa! Perfect for 2 couples or a family of 4-5.
Thank you for choosing to stay at our casa!
Perfect Beachfront Suite in Charming Town
Lo De Marcos is a gem of a 'pueblito' and this beachfront suite/condo was a perfect complement to the town. We stayed here with our three girls, ages 2, 4, and 6 and they had a blast in the pool and on the beach. The pool is small, but it was the perfect size for the 4 & and 6 year old. There is nothing like falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean waves crashing on the beach!
Unfortunately, the Martinez's were not around while we were there, but their caretakers Tony and Carla were and they were very helpful and fun to talk to. Our girls loved all the animals in town - there are chickens and dogs roaming everywhere and you might run into a horse every now and then (we also went horseback riding with Lenny - search for horseback riding in Lo De Marcos for him). The town square was great with it's little park and bouncy house that would open up in the evening. There was also live music on Thursdays at 7 or 8 pm where it seemed like the whole town came out!
We spent one evening looking for Luna's Restaurant based on some of the reviews here... we found out, though, that it is closed now.
The beach was great. The waves/current were a little stronger right out in front of the place. If you walked 1/2 mile or so you could get to some calmer waters. There are 3 restaurants on the beach. Olivia's is right next to the Suite and the food is delicious, but be prepared to wait a while for the food! No problem if you don't have young kids, but for us it was a little difficult.
Can't say enough about how great everything was in the town and the suite! One last thing... my wife was a little worried about finding coffee, but it was no problem as there is a sports bar called "Endless Summer" owned by a Candian that also runs a little espresso stand out of it that makes good coffee.
We are very happy that you enjoyed our casa! We love return guests...ome back when you can!

great spot on the beach
We were delighted by our stay at Casa De Lo Marcos. The setting was stunning (right on the sand), the casa immaculate and well appointed, and the town low key and friendly. We look forward to returning!
Thank you for taking the time to write your review of our casa! We look forward to your return!
My new husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon, and it truly was magical. The house was beautiful and spacious, right on the beach. Every night we were lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. We had a blast exploring little Lo De Marcos, chatting with the locals, and snacking at one of the few delicious restaurants in town. We also were able to take a horseback ride along the deserted beach into the jungle, which was super fun. Check in and check out were a breeze and Dave had some fantastic recommendations on what to do and see in the area. Clarita's restaurant was a fab breakfast spot, then we walked next door and bought fresh vegetables and beautifully hand-painted dishes at the farmer's market in town. I think our favorite part was while relaxing on the beach, we found an older gentleman selling delicious homemade orange and banana bread for only a few pesos. This is the type of place you read about in books. If you want to get away from everything, this is the place to stay. With a taxi stand in town, we got around no problem without a rental car. Highly recommend Casa Lo De Marcos!
The casa is located on a great uncrowded swimmable beach with boogie boarding and surfing on the south end and an estero on the North end great for bird watching!
