“Amazing Collection of Art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Casa de los Venados was very easy to find just off the main plaza. We rang the doorbell around 2:00 in the afternoon and Fredy answered the door. He immediately informed us that the house is in fact a private home. He proceeded to give us a private tour of the house while sharing stories, histories, and facts about the spectacular collection of Mexican art displayed all over the house. As the only 2 there, our tour was not rushed nor held up. I am glad that I had the chance to view this unique and beautiful art collection. GO SEE IT!....

“Casa De Los Venados great place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Kolekcija je odlicna, arhitektura impresionantno povezala staro sa novim. Vodici besprekorni i sjajni domacini koji su nam dozvolili da razgledamo kucu van vremena zakazanog za posete.

If you are traveling just in Yucatan, this place is must to see it's great collection of Mexican popular art is hard to find on one place here. Host were great and bilingual guide will provide you with more then enough informations. House architecture is magic connection old and new.
Great time and will be one of places I will always visited on my way to Yucatan.

We are so glad that you not only enjoyed the tour of the art collection, but also noted your enjoyment of the architecture. In fact, the house has won 4 major architectural awards and from time to time we get groups of architects or architectural students coming for tours of the house .

“Really worth a detour to see this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We had no idea that such a place existed. The collection of Mexican folk art is staggering, and we had a private tour as the only guests on the day we visited. This is a truly impressive collection that shouldn't be missed. Not to mention that the entire entry fee (which is not expensive) goes to charity in support of the local community. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

“Fantastico!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Casa de los Venados is a fabulously funky and enchanting experience. This unique gallery of exquisite and colourful art pieces will entice every traveller .... even children and those not usually inclined to visit galleries. Every room in this amazing private house is tastefully and delightfully embellished with Mexican folk art. The owners and guide are friendly and welcoming. Do not miss this attraction if you are in Valladolid .... and if Valladolid wasn't on your itinerary, it is worth including it for this wonderful attraction and the quaintness of this lovely Mayan town.

Loved the decor and building and got a really good feel for modern Mexican art. You need to get there at 10am, but don't miss.
