I'll add my voice to the chorus of praise for this casa where you will feel at home as if among old amigos. I spent four nights over Labor Day weekend. You would expect to pay much more for such a beautiful place: Colorful, cheery, authentic, spacious, intimate, comfortable. The staff are warm and accommodating, treating guests like family. They offer tons of advice and help in planning excursions. The breakfasts were delicious and the afternoon wine gathering was friendly and fun. The crowd was very international. I chummed up with two other single travelers--one on business from Spain and one on holiday from Texas--and we went exploring together a couple of days. I was able to use my Spanish, but the staff are all fluent in English. I stayed in a lovely, though not large, room high up in their "Rama del Arbol" house across the street. It opens onto a huge patio--shared with only one other room--which I had to myself most of the time. The patio is a great place to sit and relax among the tree tops. The neighborhood is tranquil but close to lots of restaurants and bars. Transit is within walking distance. I needed to get stitches removed and the staff gave me options and their advice on which option was cheaper and quicker but still perfectly good. I chose to see the on-call doctor at the pharmacy around the corner. The doctor told me the wound wasn't ready yet and to come back the next day, and I did. It cost me $2 to have five stitches removed from my forehead. I love Mexico, and I love this place.
