San Pancho

I'm planning a trip to San Pancho in May and was wondering if anyone knows of nice, yet moderately priced places to stay in the town. I have heard of Costa Azul, but it is out of my price range... so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Kas. We were in San Pancho 2 springs ago and LOVED it. We rented a house about 5 minutes walk from Costa Azul. Are you going by yourself? There are some great houses in the hills that are cheaper than the beach houses. We got ours on I can't remember any other hotels or resorts in San Pancho. Have you tried Sayulita? (The village just down the road) There seemed to be more housing availble there. Also, have you posted this question on the Pacific travel forum:
We enjoyed hanging out at Costa Azul, though we didn't stay there. Our favorite restaurant was Sandra's.
Good luck!

Me again. I forgot to mention a great website.
This has good information on the area. You may be able to hook up with an agent that could find you something in either San Pancho or Sayulita.
San Pancho was VERY quiet. We loved that. Sayulita had a surfer vibe - very fun.

You might also read or post over on Lonely Planet's BB called The Thorn Tree on the Mexico branch. I know a couple regular posters there who are big fans of San Pancho and Sayulita.

Im probably too late for some of you who posted months ago BUT ifyou go back be sure to go to Casa Obelisco. It is this incredible B&B on the beach. The owners are so wonderful -- they serve the best breakfast you could imagine and have a pool that will have you dreaming about returning. I've stayed at lots of B&B's -- but this one is truly special. Its right on the beach and just a short walk to town where you will find wonderful restaurants (from Tacos to really special upscale restaurants -- the beach is secluded and clean, the people friendly. Dont miss this place

This is really late, but may help future travellers. There are a few places to stay in San Pancho. In the pueblo there is a small hotel called Los Amigos which is clean and reasonably priced. In the jungle there is a primitive beachfront place which is reasonable called Bungalows Lydia. There is Costa Azul, a large, but not very satisfactory hotel. There are many houses for rent, and there is the best; Casa Obelisco, a beautiful B and B right on the quiet end of the beach. It's a little more than the other places, but a real "get away to paradise" kind of spot...very clean and well designed rooms, a perfect pool with swim up bar, and great breakfasts. With this range of places to stay you can't go wrong in San Pancho.
