Accommodation in Valle de Bravo
Cheapest accommodation options for logging in Valle de Bravo are finding a simple room. There are not formally Bed & Breakfast places in Valle de Bravo, but many people will rent a room at their homes for a really small fee, you can ask for these at the Santa María landing field or any local. Usual fee would be around 10-15 euro the night. Hotels are spread all around the town, some of the cheapest are those you can find directly outside the Valle de Bravo bus station terminal, but I would recommend getting something closer to the landing zone to avoid long walks or unnecessary daily extra taxi rides.
They are some hotels at the Santa María landing zone or close to the local clubs, some of them really close to them! That's very comfortable because it will save you from long walks every day carrying your gear all around town.

It's possible to eat from non permanent stand carts on the sidewalks of some streets (specially early on the morning and at the afternoon until late at night) for only 2 or 3 euro for some "tacos" or a cheese hamburger and a soda drink, up to the best fancy restaurants in town where a full meal with drinks cost around up to 30 euro.
Most typical food in Valle de Bravo (cheap) will be the "tacos" (circular tortilla with meat) and "quesadillas" (elliptical tortilla), all kind of tacos and quesadillas taste very different and even the same kind of taco from place to place may vary a lot, and I mean a lot! Try to have some fun, taste everything it looks and smells good to you and ask what it is after eating it! Tacos will have different kinds of meat, for a more vegetarian choice ask for quesadillas, they are also very diverse. Visiting “Mercado” or the market place of Valle de Bravo is a must as they have good prepared food. Food cost around 50-60 MX and includes water so don’t get fooled.
Take in mind that you are changing the country and you can have stomach problems due to change of food, bacteria etc. Try drinking lemon water, put lemon in everything, eat chilly and wash the fruit before eating. Ask the local pilots where to eat.
Water from the pipe is most of the year drinkable but not recommended for tourists.
In case of stomach problems buy Imodium in pharmacy and Yakool in Oxxo.
