I would highly recommend for anyone who is interested in visiting San felipe,to saty in Playa del Oro, not only was it safe, but the house we stayed in was better that some of the beach houses I've rented in Ventura. We never encounter any problems with authority or the people that live in the town. We found many Candians that live in Sanfelipe. They told us they were very happy, and they have bought property there. The house we rented was very clean and very up todate. We were afraid because of all the bad media that mexico has been getting,due to the drug cartel, but we found it to be safe and we will difffentaly be returning and staying at Playa del Oro, SanFelipe.
