All this week, Shira Levine will be filling us in on the emerging hot spot in Mexico--Riviera Nayarit. Any questions or suggestions? Let us know.

The totally charming family-run Hotel Garza Canela is one of those unassuming gems you discover by accident or word of mouth. Or at least, it has the energy of that sentiment. If you Google "hotels" and "San Blas" it is the upscale hotel in the town of roughly 12,000 people. If charming and old school rustic is your bag, the four sisters and a brother that own Garza Canela are pretty welcoming to inviting you into their life in San Blas.

The compound is the perfect setting for a reunion or a low-key intimate wedding. (They've got a chapel on site.) There are four two and three story buildings with roughly a dozen rooms in each building.

I stayed in a two-story and had a quaint 70's looking room with brown, wood-paneled walls and ceramic-tiled floors, a full kitchen and a super old school TV with equally old school TV channels.
