Rancho La Querencia has comfortable lodgings surrounded by well tended gardens and is a great place to enjoy the tranquility of a natural environment, to explore the nearby lake and waterfalls, and yet be close enough to visit Tepic, Guadalajara and the superb beaches of the Riviera Nayarit.
Over the last 8 years we have established a little paradise with comfortable lodgings
We aim to continually improve our installations and hospitality
It's a great place to relax and enjoy the environment.
The scenic Santa Maria del Oro lake is just 5 minutes away and is ideal for swimming, kayaking or fishing for bass and perch. San Blas is just 1 hour and 20 minutes away via tollroad.
"Great place to bird watch and just relax. Great stargazing also. The best hosts you could ask for"
"I enjoyed my stay of one month in January 2016. I especially like the well maintained and landscaped gardens and found it very convenient to travel to Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta"
"Chris was a fantastic host. He collected me from the little town and took me to the shops there as well as showing me around. Lent me a bicycle so I could visit other villages and gave me fresh coffee when I couldn't procure any. The self contained apartment had everything one could need. A true paradise, in an amazing setting"
"El lugar es un paraíso! La estancia fue excelente, con todas las comodidades y amable trato de los anfitriones. Sin duda vamos a volver!"
"Chris' property was amazing, beautifully landscaped with gorgeous mountain views and the trailer was exactly as described. It is a trailer and like all trailers it's a bit tight so be prepared for that. My wife and I stayed there for two nights, we really enjoyed it and had no issues. It's a great home base to explore the area from and much cheaper than a bungalow with no kitchen nearer the lake. Laguna Santa Maria del Oro is really, really beautiful and worth the drive to see. We would definitely stay here again"
Take the Santa Maria del Oro turnoff from highway 15 or toll road Guadalajara-Tepic, drive through the town, past the lookout point and continue on the winding road to the lake, take the (only) turnoff towards Cofradia. We are about 1.3km down the road on the right.
