Hotel options right in town are rather limited and desultory. Although you can't beat it for atmosphere and location, the Hotel del Norte, 7a Calle and 1a Avenida (tel. 502/7948-2116), has definitely seen better days. The sea, salt air, and heavy humidity have all taken their toll on this classic waterfront hotel. Another option close to the center of the city is Hotel Valle Tropical (tel. 502/7948-7084), which is a rather dreary concrete block building painted an awful pale green and getting a little long in the tooth.

Hotel Marbrissa (tel. 502/7948-1450; is a good, cozy, midrange resort-style hotel on the outskirts of town.
