Cielito Lindo, San Quintin
The Cielito Lindo hotel in San Quntin was built for 50’s Hollywood stars now fading into the 21st century. They serve excellent margaritas over classic cracked crab dinners. But instead of having numbers on the doors, they are named after the celebs that used to frequent the joint, take your pick and stay in the John Wayne, Henry Fonda or Jimmy Stewart room. In each room you can imagine the scenes of scandal and showbiz, as all the big stars would get together – Charlton Heston, Big John, Jimmy Stewart – talking about their latest movie.
The Cielito Lindo was originally a retreat from the hustle of Mexico City, and it is still very much a home from home. It’s also a great place to explore the island of Isla Mujeres with its ancient ruins, snorkelling and fishing trips. It is in a great location both on the beach and within minutes of the town. It’s an apartment block providing all luxuries and a lot of privacy for celebs or nowadays backpackers and visitors. Rooms start from as little as $50 off season.
