It is an awesome place, so beautiful with lots of plants, flowers, fruits from trees and fresh eggs from the hens. You can see nice birds and deer as neighbors. You can enjoy football table and pool! At night you can enjoy the fire-flies in the garden, the stars in the trees, the lights all around that make a night special. Walking to the lake is possible in 30 min (recommend good tennis shoes to walk this part), possible to swim, use kayaks and drink & eat something nice there. If going to the waterfall, recommend going by car, they are 7.2km with almost all part of the time walking down the sun, but still possible to walk it, and some locals with pickups trucks offer you a ride to there.

We had a great stay at Cristophers place. He picked us up in town and drive us to the lake, very service minded. The room was nice and tidy and the garden was beautiful. We can recommend a stay at Christophers place!

Christopher's house is an ideal place to stay. We rent one of his rooms well divided into three spaces : bedroom, bathroom, kitchen with all one needs ! A beautiful and peaceful garden. A really nice and helpful host. A strategic place to explore the surroundings of Santa Maria del Oro's lake. We'd love to go back !

Chris was a fantastic host. He collected me from the little town and took me to the shops there as well as showing me around. Lent me a bicycle so I could visit other villages and gave me fresh coffee when I couldn't procure any. The self contained apartment had everything one could need. A true paradise, in an amazing setting

Christopher User ProfileChristopher is a superhost.

I am a laid back person of British origin with a sense of humour. I live totally in the present and I am happier when I am travelling and visiting places that I have never visited before. I have visited many parts of the world and have had many diverse and interesting experiences. I now live with my mexican wife at Rancho La Querencia near to the beautiful Santa María del Oro lake in Nayarit. We take every oportunity to explore places of interest in Mexico and other countries. We like to experience the customs and way of life in the places we visit, eat in popular restaurants and get to know the locals.
