Here are some considerations to plan your stay


Our address:

Col. San Nicolas,
Pie de la Cuesta, Acapulco, Guerrero
Tel Casa: 744 4444 311
Google Maps location / Waze:

From Mexico City, it is approximately 4 and a half hours from the first toll booth to the house. Alternatively, you can take Highway 95 towards Zihuantanejo just after the last toll booth. This will save some time and the heavy traffic of Acapulco - but it is about 30 miles over the toll free road.

From the airport you can take one of the “official” taxis, the trip will take around 70 minutes and costs 800 pesos, the return should be closer to 500 pesos.

Van Rental

If you visit us as a group, you could rent a van, so the party already will start at home, you also save on gas and highway fees - and help the environment.
Options with chauffeur for up to 20 people, from 15 thousand pesos:

Rental of a Nissan Urvan or a Toyota Hiace for up to 15 people, without driver, from 6 thousand pesos, 300 USD: Home
Grocery shopping:

If you want to do the grocery shopping before getting to us, here the most convenient options:

Close-by we have some small “tiendas” (mom and pop stores) and an Oxxo convenience store where you can get basic grocery (no meat, limited fruit & vegetable) and basically all beverages, including spirits. We have returnable bottles for beer, and ice coolers which you can use..

If you prefer, our concierge Francisco can do the grocery shopping for you (add transport and tip) or accompany you after arrival. Fish and Seafood is always bought at the market fresh for the day.

If you let us know your preferences for lunch and/or dinner for the day of your arrival and the first breakfast, we do our best to have everything ready.

Tours and activities

Here are some proposals for tours and activities:

  • Yacht rental at sea: For diving, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, or simply a tour for 4-5 hours. Departing from the marina of Acapulco the cost for 5 to 6 hours is about 5 to 6 thousand pesos ( 250 - 300 USD) during the week, and 8 to 10 thousand pesos (400 - 500 USD) on the weekend - it is worth negotiating!
    1. For scuba diving I normally goe with the guys at Acascuba they have a beautiful catamaran boat for up to 30 people.
    2. Here a list of other boats see the photos above.
  • Laguna: Nice here is that you are at the sea-side, but the lagoon is just a mile inland. Lagoon is a pretty much untouched natural environment with lots of birds and fishermen, about 10 x 3 miles, great tour with a small island for eating.
    For tours on the lagoon or to practice water ski I can recommend:
    1. Entre dos Aguas there you have a bit more privacy and they have a beautiful garden for picnic
    2. Tres Marías which is also a restaurant
    Both have good ‘Mastercraft’ boats for 1000 to 1500 pesos an hour (50 to 75 USD/h), either for a tour or to try or practice waterski.
    Alternatively, our concierge can also get you a private “lancha”, fishermen boat.
  • Tours: Taxco, Mexico’s Silver City in the mountains is about a three-hour ride from here. Small, picturesque town, authentic silver arts.
    Also worth to stay a night, there are some big caves couple of miles deep called Grutas de Cacahuamilpa
