Sky diving, sand castles, sea life, pirates – going on vacation to Port Isabel is surely an adventure. Being one of the oldest cities in south Texas, Port Isabel teems with life, with its awesome people, great food, festive events, world class fishing and pirate treasure-hunting, not to mention its mild weather, all year round. It is also home to the only town square with a lighthouse, in the state. With so much to see and do, having that perfect place to enjoy the town is essential. Check out these listings for the most unforgettable stay, during your Port Isabel escapade.
Port Isla Inn is a great motel that cordially promises a well-spent stay. It features an outdoor pool, fully-furnished suites, a barbecue area, and the most refreshing view of the Port Isabel sunset. If you choose to book your stay here, it is convenient to visit Port Isabel’s famous places, like the Dolphin Docks, the Port Isabel Lighthouse and Black Dragon Cruises. With its spacious family rooms and great service, value for money is guaranteed.
The most unforgettable way to enjoy your stay in Port Isabel is to experience living like an islander, in this 1956 Spartan Imperial Mansion, which is pretty close to living in a condo, only more relaxed. This Spartan trailer is lovingly called the Silver Bullet and has just been renovated and refurnished. It has two bedrooms, two baths and a full kitchen. The home accommodates four guests for a minimum stay of two nights.
One other perk of staying here is being just one minute away from the boat dock, should guests want to drop a line or rent a boat slip. A day trip to Progreso, Mexico for some tacos, margaritas and mariachis is easily possible, for a little spice.
