In 1969, Jim Morrison arrived at the Playa Hermosa Hotel with Pamela Susan Courson inside his head to use as inspiration.
While he stayed in one of the hotel’s 100 rooms to write a new song, the iconic song from The Doors: L.A. Woman came on.
Despite the fact that there is no documentary record of the following, witnesses reported that when Morrison composed the melody for Pamela, he may have slapped and inflicted multiple blows on the back of the neck, arms and legs in one attempt. Eliminate mosquitoes flying around his body trying to feed on some of his blood.
It is said that Jim Morrison was not the only celebrity who ran away from the hotel after falling prey to those insects, because 18 years earlier, in 1951, the then President of Mexico, Miguel Alleman, also fled. The president is said to have gone to inaugurate the facilities with only red skin to escape as soon as possible.
To this day, it is said that the incident with the former president was a bad omen for the owners of Playa Hermosa, of whom, curiously, there are no records.
Although the inn’s few years of glory were truly great, because, after all, in addition to the private beach, its luxurious amenities compensated for annoying insect bites.
In the first days of its opening, the hotel’s rooms housed the best of Hollywood stars, including Elizabeth Taylor and her husband Richard Burton, who enjoyed the cool sea air of Borrego beach, San Blas.
In addition, American actor Lee Marvin walked with his girlfriend for several moments in Playa Hermosa and went fishing there. Mexican celebrities of this time also saw this hotel as the perfect place to indulge their passion. Among the most remembered are Lola Beltrán, Andrés García, Jorge Rivero and Sylvia Pinal.
Although the insects failed to distract the residents, the site did, as the sea mysteriously sank some 500 meters away from the hotel in 1968, stripping it of the wonderful tourist magnetism it possessed. The venue went out of business almost overnight, with its doors shut, shortly after Jim Morrison moved in.
It was closed after it was closed to prevent searchers from entering it. In the 90s it was the location of a Mexican film called Playa Azul, which describes the decline in life of a Mexican politician. The deterioration of the property can already be seen in the film, although it was ruined by Hurricane Kena in 2002.
