A great place to relax and enjoy the nature. Very friendly owners and you will receive a very warm welcome. The large rooms rooms are very comfortable and clean. Pilar and Clemente can tell you everything about places to see and things to do. The local Volkwagen buses can bring you everywhere in the area for only 6 pesos.

I cannot believe how lucky I was to make last minute reservations here. Sol y Arena is such an idyllic and peaceful place, and the family who runs it is so sweet and accommadating. The room was very comfortable and I felt instantly at home. I only wish I could have stayed longer!

A wonderful place - relaxed, simple and highly recommended. Pila and her staff made us extremely welcome and we were treated like house guests rather than tourists.
