Rincon de Guayabitos – A Spectacular Mexican Beach Town
Rincon de Guayabitos, which means translates to “Wrinkle of Little Guavas” is five minutes north of Los Ayala, and truly a delightful and picturesque beach. The beach offers shallow safe swimming waters, gentle waves which are perfect to play in, and three miles of fine, velvety sand to walk along. The surrounding majestic mountains are extraordinarily beautiful, and frame the bay perfectly. Because of its tranquil waters the beach is frequently referred to as the “Largest swimming pool in the world”. Guayabitos is a very popular beachside paradise with Mexican families during the summer, holidays and Semana Santa and with Canadians and Americans during the winter and spring season, both as a vacation spot and a winter retirement destination.
The south end of the beach offers old world charm and is frequented by fisherman with colourful boats decked out with pelicans. There are several palapa restaurants on this end of the beach and one of our favourites is Daniel’s Backstreet and Brewing Company, primarily for its romantic beach side setting, but also for its Scampi, Cannelloni and home crafted beer. For a change of pace and more casual fare we frequent Latitude 21 for Texas style burgers, and inexpensive good beach front dining.
The central portion of the beach is populated by the higher end hotels, and has several great Mexican restaurants such as Pina Loca, and Campanario, set a block or two back to the beach. Mateja's on the Beach is another wonderful beach side restaurant, not to be missed for great home made soups, chicken fingers and spinach salad, and lively entertainment. A great spot for a fun day at the beach. For the younger crowd Guayabitos has two discothèques which are very lively after 10 p.m.
The north end of the beach is largely residential where many of the homes resemble tropical palaces complete with colourful cupolas. This end of the beach is always quiet, very popular with boogie boarders of all ages, and on windy days you may even catch some of the local kids surfing. The main avenue of Guayabitos is lined with stores selling an endless array of sandals, bathing suits, hats, t-shirts and souvenirs. There is a great variety of inexpensive restaurants, taco stands, ice cream parlours, fresh fruit stands, and convenience stores.
While visiting Guayabitos, take a boat ride to nearby Isla Islote for some snorkelling, or simply a day at small but very beautiful beach. The beach at Isla Islote boasts fine white sand and crystal clear Caribbean-like waters and good snorkelling at high tide. The snorkelling does not compare to the Caribbean side of Mexico, but the snorkelling is good. Bring an umbrella for shade, your own snacks and water, and try to visit the Loo before you board the boat, as there are no facilities of this kind on the island.
Rincon de Guayabitos is an affordable, beautiful beach side paradise which offers something for everyone.

Wonderful Family Vacation home for Christmas
Sigh...A Lovely Time was Enjoyed by All!
We have 2 children (4 years and 6 years of age) and the walk into town and beach was easy on little legs and if we ran out of steam it was a 30 pesos taxi ride back to the house.
The house itself is absolutely beautiful - we have rented various accommodations in Mexico over the years and truly this was our best rental experience. The showers were great (excellent water pressure and water temperature),the kitchen was well-equipped and we had great evenings enjoying a BBQ supper and sitting outside by the pool.
Lastly, the pool - we all (big and small) loved the pool - the view, the warmth of the water, the view, and did I note...the view??
Sigh...you have a lovely place...we truly enjoyed our time there.
Thanks so much for the great review. You were great renters. Come back anytime.
