My favorite place to stay in San Carlos. Soft sand beach in a large sheltered bay great for snorkel, kayaking, paddle boarding & Hobie Sailing and good scuba locations a short paddle to the islands to the West.

Glad to hear that you had a great time at Playa Blanca and thank you very much for your kind words about the staff. We apologize for the temporary shut down of the bar and restaurant. We changed operators at the end of September and will be back in full operation in November.

If you're old and just want to sit on the beach...this is the place! The condos are amazing and well-appointed (granite, stone, etc). Housekeeping was supposed to refresh our coffee and take out the garbage daily. They took out the garbage and made one of the beds each day...that's something:) Unfortunately, there is absolutely NO area info here in the...

San Carlos is a gem of a destination, and Playa Blanca is the perfect accommodation. Clean, secure, and staffed with helpful professionals. Very popular with Americans, it makes a trip to Mexico easy and fulfilling. Highly recommend as a repeat destination.

Great beach sports and fishing and diving as well. Never had a bad visit. I stay their around once a month on average.

I have been coming to the Playa Blanca for several years and I have to say that it is a first class experience from start to finish. Of course the view, beach and the pool are amazing. Bit the real secret is the friendly staff. Clearly the best that San Carlos or better yet Sonora has to offer.

Thanks for the great review!! Glad you like all of the bars and restaurants nearby ..they are a lot of fun and offer a lot variety as well.
