Accès des voyageurs
The space is part of a small complex with 5 other bungalows, which surround a large and lush courtyard. You are welcome to enjoy the courtyard, which has several tables and chairs and an outdoor kitchen. We serve drinks, refrescos, snacks and meals throughout the winter months. If this interests our summer guests meals can be arranged on a regular or irregular basis.
We also have a small Super Micro Mini Super stocked with some basic food items, personal care items and some other strange stuff.
There is also with a microwave for communal use in the back of the courtyard as well as a blender and more dishes and cookware, if you find you are lacking what you need in your space. You will be provided with towels, and purified water is available for purchase.
You are also welcome to play with the animals that live here!

We (Chris and Rita) live here, and there are a few other long-term residents. We are all friendly and happy to lend advise about San Blas, chat over a cup of coffee, or leave you to your tranquility if you prefer. The courtyard is often a place of small afternoon gatherings and scrabble-playing, and you are always welcome to join!
We have cats and dogs, and a few pretty birds. San Blas is known for the beach, the shrimp, and the bugs, so be prepared with bug spray or clothing that provides coverage, especially during dawn and dusk. Our bungalows have fans and are fully screened.
We are not big on posting rules. We just ask people to be considerate of their neighbors and others to please be more tolerant of thiers. Our "noisier" bungalows are noted here as they are closer to the common area in the courtyard where people gather for meals, drinks, music, scrabble or whatever. Our gatherings are really pretty tranquil aside from the music tending to increase at times, but after certain hours (depending on our collection of guests) the music is turned down. If all else fails you can move from your front room into your bedroom, shut your door and put your fan on high for white noise, or just come back out and join the crowd.
We are 420 friendly. If this causes you any discomfort maybe we are not the place for you. I mention this because we want the only surprises to be pleasant ones.
The Quinta (old Spanish word for Inn) is an old building. Not just here, but throughout Mexico exist old septic systems, many still with the red clay pipes. We ask that all paper waste in the bathrooms go into the baskets provided. This helps to prevent stoppage on the drains or even nasty backflow .....which I would rather not discuss. Anyway, not as difficult a thing to get used to, really, so please respect the Mexican plumbing. :)
Well, now that I have updated our House Rules designed for making sure everybody finds the right space for them our no rules read like babble of much ado about nothing. But - please have a good time and help us see to it that the others do too.

Alma Rita and I met in Puerto Vallarta in 1992. She is from Mexico City and I came from the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. I am from small communities and have known San Blas since I was a child. Having been a city girl all of her life, cosmopolitan Alma Rita suffered more culture shock than I the first few years we lived here.
We bought the closed and run down Quinta in 1993 without sufficient funds left over to restore it properly. We have survived hurricanes, devaluations and major swings in tourism here in San Blas, but most of all we have enjoyed hundreds of great guests from all over the world ,while always moving onward to further our labor of love to maintain the place the best we can through creative reinvention. Of coarse we also enjoy a great lifestyle here in San Blas, not to mention the fact that I get to eat Mexican food every day.
I first came to this mosquito infested mangrove swamp full of crocodiles as a little boy in 1962 and always dreamed of this cool little "Pirate Town" during all of my youth. I returned a number of times in the 70's and decided to make the move to live here in 1992 during a vacation. What would I do? I asked myself. So, under the "careful what you wish for" department, maybe, just maybe, they would sell me those old run down bungalows I used to stay at in the 70's.....
Having been to Europe various times, all over the U.S., and throughout Mexico Alma Rita is well traveled. Myself, I have just traveled up and down the west coast between Vancouver BC and Mexico DF a trillion times. Oh, and I did go to New York City once for four days. Traveling is definitely in our future plans, and I do hope to be as graceful a guest as so many have been with us in the last 20-odd years.
As hosts you will find us a bit laid back and easy going, yet helpful with your needs and desires. Alma Rita is out teaching English weekdays, and I am pretty much always here and available if not off on one of my 15 minute treks to town on my bike picking up forgotten goods from my last trip...
.....We haven't any real house rules, we just ask that you are considerate of the other guests and try not to whine too much, as there is no place like this place, anywhere near this place - so this must be the place.
Rustic, friendly and simple with a bunch of cats in the courtyard and a cool breeze blowing down around the giant Ficus tree while a dog or two barks from time to time at a squirrel, or a passerby, or just just asking to be let in.
After 22 years, it just is what it is - a place where many people often return, while others guard their memories close to their heart and wish they could.
