Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Garza Canela

Calle Paredes 106 Sur, San Blas, Nayarit, 63740, Mexico

Opened decades ago by a family of dedicated bird-watchers, this meandering, three-story hotel with expansive grounds is the home base of choice for birding groups. Rooms have small balconies and polished limestone floors; junior suites have large whirlpool tubs. Betty Vasquez, who runs El Delfín French restaurant here, studied at Le Cordon Bleu in France; she prepares elegant and very tasty meals.

PROS

  • very good French restaurant
  • suites have hot tub
