About Elizabeth Porras
World traveler, interior decorator, artist, lover of life!!!
Elizabeth Porras purchased this Guest House in 2004
Why Elizabeth Porras chose Centro Historico
Old Hacienda originally built in 1835 with a fantastic history. I bought it as a ruin and restored it to my dreams. Great to all local attractions....
What makes this Guest House unique
This home is a real treasure of Mexican history. The location is fantastic and the feel in the home is the real Mexico!!

If you want to get away from the normal tourist program when visiting Mazatlan and really relax in a quiet yet historic area this is the place for you. Elizabeth has created a beautiful home out of a complete ruin and yet managed to save much of it’s historical value. We have been visiting Mexico for years and we always wanted to experience staying in an authentic hacienda and this was it. Thank you, Elizabeth, for a very enjoyable stay.
The Centers were perfect couple to have visit! They were happy to park the car and leave it the whole stay as they just enjoyed wandering around the beautiful Historic Center of Mazatlan. They were on their way to the interior of Mexico for a longer stay, but the time they spent here was quite enjoyable. I would welcome them back anytime! I hope you enjoyed Tequila as well...great little city! Have a super trip....
Wonderful hacienda & great location
We had a great time at Hacienda Recreo and Elizabeth is a wonderful host. It has an authentic feel with lots of charm. The centro location is perfect for exploring the historical district, easy access to the Malecon/beach and local restaurants. (We also fell in love with Cooper & Sophie, the official puppies of Hacienda Recreo.) This is the perfect place to get a feel for the real Mazatlan and not the tourist town.
It was a pleasure to have these guests in my home. The dogs were very sad to see them go!! I was very happy that they did not let grass grow under their feet....they were out and about and exploring and enjoying all that Mazatlan has to offer!!! I look forward to seeing them again soon!!
Beautiful hacienda in a great location. Everything and more than what we anticipated.
Elizabeth is a wonderful person and a great host? We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. An oasis in the middle of Oldtaown. We only stayed three nights, but will certainly stay longer next year. Thank you again Elizabeth for your hospitality.
It was such fun to share our beautiful City with both Maureen and husband. Though avid golfers, they soon discovered that Mazatlan is full of wonderfrul suprizes. They had the opportunity to try many of our fantastic restaurants right within a couple blocks and shopping so close at hand. I enjoyed their company and do look forward to seeing them in the future...
A Dream Place
The place is fantastic: marvelously designed and cared in every detail, very clean, comfortable and in an unbeatable location. Plus, Elizabeth is extremely kind and helpful. I highly recommend it, and look forward to coming back myself!
Clean, comfortable and centrally located
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the "Green Room" in Elizabeth's beautiful centrally located hacienda.
Our room was clean and furnished with a comfortable king-sized bed. We found it convenient to have the ability to make coffee, breakfast and light meals in the outdoor kitchen located adjacent to the grassed backyard. The central courtyard proved to be a favourite location for us to sit and relax in the afternoon checking emails and enjoying a cocktail. Elizabeth's home is centrally located in the old city and is only a short walk to the market and the plaza.
There is a wide variety of restaurants located nearby and they offer a wide variety of options for even the most discerning diners. Strolling along the ocean-side Malecon was a pleasant experience and was something we did many times.
Elizabeth is a most gracious host and warmly welcomed us upon our arrival. We hated to leave her place at the end of our stay.
I would have no hesitation recommending Elizabeth's Green Room to my family and friends. We would certainly book her place again if we were to visit Mazatlan in the future.
Fantastic guests! We’re not one bit afraid of jumping right in and discovering the city and all it has to offer. They were busy from morning till night but did take time to relax! I hope they come visit me again!! Happy travels
Conveniently located, beautiful and friendly
My husband and I love the Plaza, full of activity and great restaurants/bars. This place is less than a block away. The owner is helpful and friendly. We took her suggestion to spend a day at the beach on Isla de las Piedras, an easy walk and boat shuttle from her hacienda. It was great, just like an all inclusive without the fancy hotel. Once there, you can get an umbrella, a couple of chairs and a waiter to take care of you for very little $$$. The beach and ocean are clean and beautiful. We stayed in the blue and green rooms before and after a side trip to Durango. Both are comfortable, cool and private but still connected to the beautiful outdoor patio. Highly recommend the outdoor shower.
Im so pleased that you took full opportunity of enjoying our beautiful City, venturing out to the outlying typical towns and local beaches. I was happy to provide you with a fantastic central location that allow easy access to all local attractions...hope to see you again in the future!
