My wife and I spent over 2 weeks at Zina's Guest House and enjoyed it greatly. We were looking for a place to relax. Zina's apartment is simple yet nice - just what we were looking for. After Zina provided an orientation of the island and local neighborhood we were ready to go shopping at the market, bakery, and neighborhood...

Made a quick trip to Isla to visit my friend Zina. This would be my 5th or 6th stay at Zina's. I've lost count. Had a lovely stay in her second floor suite. My trip lasted the first 10 days of September and Zina's new roof-top pool was a wlelcome relief during the heat wave. I gladly offered to do...

Up front, I'll tell you that I am a reporter at the same paper where Zina Vishnevsky, who owns Zina's Guest House, also was a reporter. I knew her as a colleague before she retired and moved to the island (at least part-time) and bought the guest house. The guest house is NOT in the middle of the touristy parts...

My boyfriend and I came to stay at Zina's for our spring break and truly was perfect. We flew into Cancun and took the ferry over to the island. On the first morning Zina took us for a tour of the island on her golf cart and pointed out places to go and great places to eat. We rented a...

My sister and I just spent another week at Zina's. It's been 3 years since we've been able to make it back but we just won't wait that long again! First of all, the experience of just getting to Zina's from Sacramento, CA is a trip in itself! I've stayed in resorts and I have to say that staying in...

Zina's guest house is perfect for vacationers who prefer to avoid tourist traps and offer themselves a more authentic experience. Zina greeted us with welcome mojitos and introduced us to the best island treasures--from the yummiest eateries to the friendliest dive shop. Staying in La Gloria, a local neighbourhood, gave us a much more real and complete look at life...

If you want to stay in an authentic Mexican neighborhood, Zina's guest house is perfect, and very reasonable. The room had air conditioning, a microwave, coffeemaker and stovetop as well as cable TV. There is a small courtyard to enjoy the beautiful weather as well as a rooftop deck. Zina provided directions to all the amenities on the island including...

I enjoyed Zina's Guest House so much the last time that I returned for a two-week stay in May. As usual, Zina was the best possible hostess. She really wants people to enjoy staying in the "hood" instead of in the usual tourist areas. She knew local restaurants which were cheaper and just as yummy as the ones downtown. I...

Staying at Zina’s Guest House is like being at home! The small apartment I had for two months was outfitted with everything from microwave and toaster, blender a double hot plate to a good supply of towels. Since everything from yogurt to fresh chicken and other meats is available within a couple blocks you can save money for a fancy...

“let Zina know in advance what you want from your island experience; you will find she has great information and contacts. The upstairs apartment is near the rooftop pool and has nice views of the neighborhood, the downstairs apartment is a little more accessible if you don't like climbing stairs.”
