The best place for travelers to recharge. Here, you will be part of the family, and be able to share great times and the best vibes.Located in San Cristobal de las Casas; with it’s small stoned streets, warm and More smooth lights, soft embracing music from small friendly shops, tasty flavors, traditional culture, and a mix of others, which all come together to make this a magical place. It's the closest a foreigner will feel at home, simply wonderful; you will fall in love. By the by, San Cristobal remains a small and wonderful place, that stays in touch with it’s traditions and identity.My house is your house!
