Hi...new to the forum.  My husband and I are trying to plan a trip to San Carlos and have tried to email a couple of hotels, the first being Hotel Playa de Cortez, and get no response.  Everywhere we try to book for July/August this year says "no availability".  Is summer the high season?

This time of the year is the season for U S and Canadian citizen's. The summer is the high season for the Mexican Tourist. Try some of the Hotel's in San Carlos..

Thanks for reply. We've tried several hotels and get no response.  I guess the next step will be to try phoning...

I am wondering if they just donĀ“t have their reservation system working that far in advance. I have run into that occasionally. From what I know, Mexicans do not traditionally make reservations far in advance so I think it unlikely that all these places are booked for July/August. W

I don't think you will have trouble finding lodging in those months. Busy with Mexican nationals in the summer on weekends but I would not be discouraged. It is very hot and humid in those months but I am sure you knew that.

Another option to explore is private homes. Try here...

Playa de Cortez is old world charm, I doubt they have internet, do not need a reservation any time of year, when checking in ask to see room 126, it is my favorite, enjoy your stay.

Those months are great for diving and snorkeling. You will need a boat to access ideal locations, others can be reached from shore. Wetsuit?......not unless you want to boil...lol. Maybe for aqua malas..

Playa de Cortez has wifi. It is a very busy place in the summer, a traditional family vacation spot, lots of kids in the pool. Usually a lycra dive skin is enough to keep from getting stung and the ocean is in the 80s or more in July/Aug. You can rent kayaks to get to most of the inshore snorkeling spots.

Not sure I am correct about room  number 126 it was a long time ago, we lived for 2 years at the hotel, the room was located on the 2nd floor, at the end with a view of the water. from the pool, it was winter, we had a fire in the fireplace every night to take the chill off, during the day the windows were open allowing the gentle sea breeze to blow the the curtains,  living at the hotel was fascinating, people came and went, we met so many interesting people, the main table in front of the dinging room fireplace was reserved for us, we invited many people to join us every night, we dressed for dinner at night, it was formal and wonderful, have so many stories to remember.  I  have history with the Hotel, in the 1950's my father-in-law and his wife wintered there with his father, that is my wife's grandfather, my wife was a babe in arms, the grandfather was the founder of the Safeway Grocery Stores, he and his son ( my father-in-law ) fished every day, fast forward to 1972, my wife and I visited the Playa, we stayed in the Miramir Trailer Park next door, that was my first visit at the Playa and I fell in love, fast forward to 1987/1988, we lived for 2 winters at the hotel, hotel life was fascinating, my wife never came out of the room until noon, we hung out at the pool most days or going to San Carlos, meeting other hotel guests, often invited them to join us for dinner, we had the dining room table reserved at the fireplace, it was winter and it was pleasant to eat with the warmth of the fire, interesting people and good conversation, one time this Russian man with his California partner checked in, he was tall, white skinned, a successful Russian movie producer, he wore black, had  a big ego, his partner was California beautiful, tall, thin, skinny, blonde, porcelain skin, very whimsical, free, my wife was gorgeous, I could tell he was attacked to her, we hung out together, we dinned together, the Russian man was attacked to my wife, I told my wife she could spend the night with him, she did, I spent the night with his partner, such is Hotel life.
