In the evenings, we sat outside...

Barichara is a gem, with its cobblestone alleys and colonial houses. Achiotte Hotel is a gem, in the center of this village - rooms are very clean, shower is excellent, staff is professional and very nice, breakfast is good, and you can enjoy excellent views from the balcony. And you can walk the Camino Real.

Everything was amazing in that place! From the start when they opened the door until we leave. The room was very nice, quiet and we could even have a kind of balcony.

“If you do not mind the roosters and the birds in the area, this is the place for you. There are big rooms and small rooms. The best views are from room #2 and room #5. Most of them have a shower with a view of the sky and the mountains. You have areas to hang around including hammocks. Each bedroom has it's own charm.”
