El Fuerte is awash in colonial charm and that laid back Mexican pace…I love this place and so do our guests. There are many fine places to lodge here, but my hands down fave is Real de Carapoa. A converted mansion and the handiwork of “Billy”, an architect fromLos Mochis, it features large rooms with those thick adobe walls that make the air conditioning only needed on the hottest of nights.
Carapoa is right on the square and so is easy walking to the market, the river and fort, and many fine restaurants and street vendors. The proprietor is Erasmo and he and his gracious wife Rosaria always show us the best of hospitality.
