Frequently Asked Questions

How reliable is your internet?
Do you have a generator?
Yes, and it operates after the town’s power shuts off during the months of June, July and August due to the severe heat at night. There is inherent noise when it is operating that the guests must endure but it is preferred to the heat. (The generator is located underneath the Apartment.) Guests may pay a price for the same service in other months if desired.
Do you have air conditioning?
Yes, and they are only operable when the generator is on. The Hotel runs the generator every night starting at 11pm between July and September. Guests may pay a price for the same service in other months if desired. All rooms have operating fans.

What is the preferred currency?
Almost all vendors in the pueblo only accept pesos. The Hotel accepts all forms of payment and uses the exchange rate of 18 to 1 when exchanging dollars for pesos.
When are the best waves?
Our most consistent months for surf are June, July and August. As you move away from those months, the surf gets less consistent with December and January being our least consistent months. However, it is impossible to predict Mother Nature and there is always a chance for surf.
Will I arrive at the Hotel before it gets dark?
Most flights that arrive in the afternoon at the Loreto Airport will allow for you to arrive before dark. The only exception might be in the winter when the days are shorter and you might consider a hotel prior to traveling to San Juanico. The wait for a rental car is short and the drive should take you no more than 3 and a half hours from the airport.
Where can I purchase gasoline?
San Juanico has a few shops that sell gasoline at a premium. Another option would be to fill your tank at a gas station in Insurgentes on the way in and on the way out.
What type of electrical outlets are in the rooms?
All of the Hotel's rooms have three-prong electrical outlets.
Is the water safe to consume?
The water at the Hotel is from a well and clean and you can use it to brush your teeth without hesitation. However, each room comes with drinkable, purified water and there are stations throughout the Hotel with the same drinkable, purified water for guests to drink.
Do you have wetsuit rentals?
Yes, but it is recommended to bring your own. We have a small number of tops, spring suits, full suits and booties that have been donated over the years and each item can be rented for $5 per day.
Do I need to bring my own yoga mat?
No, each room in the Hotel has one.
