Hotel Villas Isabela is located just 656 feet from Punta Palapa Beach, in San Carlos. It offers a restaurant and snack bar, a terrace with hammocks and air-conditioned rooms with free Wi-Fi. The food was out of this world. The room was massive with 2 huge king beds that were super comfy
Located within 2.7 miles of La Laguna and 3.2 miles of Palo Bola, Hotel Mumai has rooms with air conditioning and a private bathroom in Ciudad Constitución. Excellent, modern and clean rooms and facilities. I loved the added security of the attached garage and locking door giving everything an inclusive feel. The staff is friendly and attentive to cleaning the rooms. A mini fridge and microwave would have made me give 5 stars but there is a microwave in the office as well as snacks, soft drinks and beer so that’s a plus. Highly recommended!
Located in Ciudad Constitución, 1.8 miles from Palo Bola, María de Nadie "Hotel Boutique" has accommodations with a restaurant, free private parking, a bar and a garden. Wonderful staff and service, very friendly and helpful owner. Wonderful experience with this hotel
San Carlos is a quaint Mexican town with friendly people. We came for the whale watch and booked through Magdalena Bay Whale Watching. It was very expensive for what the experience was, but glad to have done it. Jesus, who drove us to the start was a wonderful person...kind, caring and attentive. Our captain/guide was Christian and he was great, really trying to give us the best experience.....one close whale encounter and then just a lot of tail flukes as the whales were diving.....perhaps the wrong time of the year for seeing more whales. With that said, we did get a great dolphin encounter for 20 minutes, met local fishermen, lots of seabirds, saw sea lions and walked the beautiful windswept dunes. Had a great lunch at "Restaurant la Pasudita" when we first arrived.
We enjoyed staying in San Carlos, it is very small & local, which we like. We had our meals at the hotel, walked & drove around the town to see the sights. You can't get lost there, very little traffic, moving slowly. The highlight was our whale watching trip & lunch on the island where they are mainly fishermen. I had a fresh caught lobster, huge, ate the entire thing!
I highly recommend the whale watching. There is nothing else like it -- so close to the whales. I was worried that they might feel scared or threatened, but it didn't seem that way at all. They were calm and seemed to readily co-exist with the boats. All of us were incredibly moved by the experience. This was a bucket list item for me, and I could not have been more pleased with the result.
Very small town, we went there to see the whales the tours were overpriced and some too long. We decided to drive to Puerto Chale and took a 3 hour boat tour which we enjoyed and got to see the grey whales. There were over 60 of them swimming and playing in the bay. The tour was very reasonable, $400 pesos per person compare to $1000 pesos in San Carlos.
