Somewhat isolated, this B&B is perfect for those who truly want a respite from the world. (You can walk a dirt trail to the beach and a handful of nearby hotels/restaurants or drive down the rugged, rutted one-lane road.) We loved starting our day with a delicious breakfast and chatting with our convivial host, Victor, and the other guests. In...

This was my third time in Zipolite, and I do believe I've found the perfect vacation spot. I've traveled to several places throughout the world. Nothing compares to the hospitality I received while staying at this unique bed and breakfast. The view is absolutely STUNNING from every spot of this home. The grounds are kept immaculately. The rooms (all areas)...

A beautiful boutique hotel with a stunning view, remove but a short walk to the beach and town. The service was incredible and the owner/host Victor was attentive and a pleasure to talk to. The infinity pool has one of the most beautiful views. You can literally sit in the pool and stare out to Cameron Bay for hours. Could...

Heven is nestled on the coast of southern Mexico in a hippie zen like Puebla called Zipolite. At night you hear the waves crashing below and the sunrise and sunsets are beautiful. This small hotel caters to just about every need and is one of our most favorite places to visit.

We were here a couple of years ago and gave a 5 star review of Heven. We've travelled to other places since then, and our return to Heven and Zipolite feels like we're finally back where we belong - still just that good. Having stayed in several different rooms here, we can say each unit is unique - great layouts,...
