Owner description: Casa Popenoe appeals to the inquiring mind. It prompts us to ask questions about ideas, about passion, about commitment; about commitment; about history, art, science, beauty, austerity, proportion. What role does each play in human development? In the development of civilization?

“Not open as of June 15, 2013”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We read about this house in our Moon travel guide to Guatemala and after heading to the location mentioned in the book we couldn't find a sign or name anywhere. A woman who happened to see us searching around asked if she could help us. I said we were looking for the Casa Popenoe and she said it was closed and didn't know if or when it would be open to the public again. Disappointing.

“Wrong Info”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

Along with your review, there's a review of CUSCATLAN TOURS, which it says is 4.3 miles from Casa Popnoe. it's actually 280 km. Don't use this as a review.

“Interesting local insight stop.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2007

A well restored casa, circa 1700,1800's. Very fascinating story about how avacados were introduced to California from here. It's only open limited hours, so check before you go.
