We intended to Stay at Koala Bungalows at the Santa Maria del Oro lake (our favourite spot) but as there was no vacancy there, we were advised to visit Rancho Querencia about 3 kilometers away on the road to Cofradia. We were surprised and delighted...More

About the neighbourhood
This is an unspoilt area just 5 minutes by road to the lovely Santa Maria del Oro lake, or about 20 minutes walk. I have a couple of bikes that you may use to visit the lake or the nearby waterfalls. The area is popular with birders and over 200 species have been named. You might like to hike around the lake since the views are incredible and you may see some of the wildlife like deer, armadillos, squirrels, opossums, iguanas, chachalacas, magpie jays and lots more. The lake is ideal for swimming, boating, kayaking and fishing. I recommend this place to relax and use as a base for visiting many places of interest.
I am a keen gardener and keep the landscaped gardens looking their best at all times, there are many flowering trees and bushes, lots of grassy areas, shade houses with hammock...
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Puerto Vallarta, or Guadalajara: 161.0 km
If you have a car then it is easier to visit places of interest but it is not essential as I am available to meet you at the town of Santa Maria del Oro. You can get there by taking one of the passing combis from outside the Tepic bus staion. I also offer to meet you with my car (Honda Civic) at the aiport, either Puerto Vallarta or Guadalajara, for a small fee to cover gas and toll road fees. If you wish, we can make a stop on the way. From Guadalajara we may stop at Tequila and from Puerto Vallarta, Compostela.
