About La Zayapa Hotel
We are a nice and comfortable family hotel (9 rooms) located in front of the passenger’s pier in San Cristobal. 5 minutes from the airport and very close to Playa de Oro, and 40 minutes sailing to Kicker Rock.
Our goal is to provide the best personalized service to our guests. We live daily with the fauna of our island as sea lions, marine iguanas, crabs zayapas so we identify with people who feel a deep respect for nature, and are concerned about a correct use of the natural resources we have, such as The fresh water.
The hotel is relatively new, but we have not stopped improving since it was created. Breakfasts, panoramic windows in front of the sea, WIFI Internet, Paddle Board lessons, beach towels, safe deposit box … are just some of the improvements we have been making recently to our hotel so you can feel more comfortable.
