You can also see my reviews on my other listing. Always good to know who you are dealing with :)

Guest access

Reef Club access on the beach. However, this is a 15 minute bike ride and I don't recommend you walk there. during high season there can be quite a bit of demand and the access does not get you food or drinks. I would recommend a beach club in town that rents loungers for very little and then you can order food or go eat at one of the many restaurants at your convenience and then come back to your chair. Seems like a better experience all around, but, again, like everything, during high season and weekends, the chairs can fill up

Interaction with guests

I am readily available on email 24 hours a day for my guests and Anna is local and very very responsive to address anything that you need.

The neighborhood

Los Lirios is 30 units in 5 buildings with a very close and comfy feel. Neighbors are quiet and from Europe, Canada, Mexico and the United States

Getting around

I have 2 bikes for use in the condo, taxis are available close by and are only around $5 USD to town. There is also a dedicated Parking space labeled B1 by the gate if you rent a car

Other things to note

Recommend a temp plan with your provider for phone and internet while abroad.

After April 2017, there will be a local mobile phone with a Telcel hot spot that is pre paid. This phone will be be allowed out of the unit. Prepay at OXXO on the phone numb(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) pesos will get us talk, text and internet. To convert the credits to internet you have options
$99.01 Pesos: For 400 MB over 7 days type;
medio7

For 1Gb over 7 days type;
alto7

For 2 GB over 30 days type;
Medio30

For 1.5 GB over 15 days type;
Alto15


There are other plans that cost a little more and therefore require additional funds. There are 30 day plans. Adding funds to the modem is simple. You go to any Oxxo in town and ask them to put money on phone numb(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). For a specific plan name to meet your needs you can contact me or go to the following link to get plan name and price;

in addition, now there is talk and text and 1GB data when in Mexico with ATT. Worth looking into that as you can use your current phone.
