  • We use only LED lighting for energy efficiency and conservation
  • We use solar lighting for patios and garden

  • We recycle plastics
  • We use local hand manufactured ecofriendly brick for the buildings as much as we can
  • We compost food waste
  • We serve only our local Guerrero grown organic coffee

B&B with 2 swimming pools



2 swimming pools : one pool for relaxing and another one for exercising!

When you get here, join me walking in water at our lap pool!
Water aerobics is a great exercise for many people and I will exercise with you daily.

With all the walking I do outside I am always surprised with how tired I am after walking a few lengths of the pool. And I can definitely feel it in all of my muscles including my arms. But the best part is that I don’t feel any pain in my joints.

Swimming can bother my neck and running bothers my hip. Because the water makes you buoyant, doing any exercise in water puts less stress on your joints and muscles than most other sports.

Playa Blanca

Our beach is perfect for walking and power walking. I walk our dogs every morning, a couple of residents run every day.  Walking or Running on the beach can not only be a peaceful, beautiful running experience, but it can also help become a stronger athlete, and lose quite a few calories.



beach Playa Blanca




Walking in sand requires a greater effort than walking on a hard surface. Your muscles and tendons will work harder as your foot moves around. Walking at a slower pace while your feet sink in sand requires more effort than walking fast or even jogging. Walking in sand requires 2.1 to 2.7 times more energy than walking on hard surfaces.

Come for a healthy tropical vacation!
