Casa de la Vaquita looks so charming in the photos posted by the owners and by former guests, you wonder if it could measure up once you've arrived. Guess what! It does! My friend and I (traveling companions since we we first met in college) had enrolled in a local Spanish language school. We needed comfortable lodging in the center... more

Management response:

Casa de la Vaquita met all our requirements. This is a beautifully... more
