Over the past couple of days, I literally spent several hours writing a blog about my recent overnight stay at Los Crotos hotel in the little town of San Luis Soyatlan, about 15 miles east of Jocotepec on the south shore of Lake Chapala. And now it’s gone. I don’t know what I did, but it’s gone. These things happen. Ask anyone who blogs.
Suffice to say that a couple of weeks ago, on one of our local forums [http://lagunachapala.com/], I won an overnight stay for two, including dinner and breakfast. On Saturday, 30 June 2012, I took advantage of that prize and had a GREAT time!
But instead of trying to recreate the whole blog, I’m going to include a series of photos that I took and recommend that if you are in this area, you should definitely take advantage of the inexpensive rates at Los Crotos and have yourself a merry little teeny, tiny roadtrip like my friend Jonnie and I did!
There are only five rooms at Los Crotos and Jonnie and I had “Sur”. We needed two separate beds and this one is on the second floor of Los Crotos with great views looking north across Lake Chapala:
The rooms aren’t particularly fancy, but the price is right, the beds are very, very comfortable and with a balcony or terrace right outside your door, you probably won’t be spending much time in there anyway.
Jonnie and I had several cocktails on the balcony with our new friends Ellen and Albert and then had a fabulous dinner served right upstairs on the same table. Talk about your room service!
By the way, normally we would not have lugged out drinks of choice with us, but because it was the weekend of the Mexican presidential election, no establishments were allowed to sell alcoholic beverages, so we brought our own. Normally, you can buy your drinks at the hotel.
Not only is the upstairs balcony gorgeous, so is the downstairs dining area and garden:
