We had a lovely stay at the Aticama B&B in Nov. 2011. Ken and Sheila were outstanding hosts and Ken went way above and beyond, running us into San Blas (twice!) and offering to drive us into the mountains to a favorite destination. This is not Puerto Vallarta; that's the whole point. I loved the pozole at Lucy's, a soda typical of the humble restaurants in Aticama; it had great, simple fare and very friendly locals (BYOB). Bring a flashlight for the 20 minute trip in the dark. The room IS basic but very clean and I thought perfectly comfortable and our refrigerator kept our beer cold. The pictures on the website fairly represent the property. The beach is family-friendly and we enjoyed some modest body surfing. Ken even had a couple of body boards he let us use. The area is a birder's paradise and we enjoyed the La Tovara boat trip (get the first tour in the morning).
