Casa de Leyendas, Mazatlán: More Sun, Less Money

The perfect breakfast nook at
Casa de Leyendas.

In case you missed the More Sun for the Money piece in the March issue of Condé Nast Traveler, we're doling out the Latin America and Caribbean deals here on the Daily Traveler all month.

Casa de Leyendas in Mazatlán, Mexico with doubles going for $99-$125

On the edge of Mazatlán's sleepy historic district, this old-fashioned Mexican hacienda was restored a few years ago by owners Glen and Sharon Sorrie. Now the persimmon-hued two-story building is a casually elegant bed-and-breakfast with six large guest rooms and plenty of common areas. Take your coffee in the quiet inner courtyard with wrought iron tables and a petite plunge pool, or curl up with a magazine on a comfy couch upstairs. There are thoughtful details such as a constantly refilled snack basket, an on-site laundry, and free Internet and calls to the United States and Canada. The daily breakfast is a lavish affair with fruit, eggs, and pastries. The property is well situated for both beachgoers (the sand is just blocks away) and antiques hunters, plus the city's small art museum is just across the street. The Sorries know just about everyone and can easily arrange boat cruises, restaurant reservations, or anything else you might fancy.
