Comments Sept. 1st started an 8-day stay at Casa Mexicana; nice big room, really comfortable bed, clean, flat-screen t.v., mini-fridge, safe, hot water could be get really hot, AC was fine, wifi served fine (I wasn't streaming much video). Good location; near the waterfront, souvenir shops and places to eat. Maybe 15 minute (?) walk to the Mega supermarket, 5 minutes to Tres Pelicanos dive shop. Good breakfast buffet included - starts around 7 a.m.
