Reviewed November 28, 2011

This is a comfortable and easy-going place five or six blocks from the Zoc on one of the quieter streets in the neighborhood. It’s pretty informal (there is a ridiculously little dog running around, a couple tropical birds, and a pair of turtles) so if you need a new towel every day, move on. But the place is clean, there is plenty of hot water, and the hosts are really friendly (they don’t speak English, but we were able to communicate just fine). Breakfast is inarguably Mexican, that is, tortillas and black beans. The extended family lives in the compound, so it is a bustling place sometimes. We were there with our two kids (1.5 and 3) who could run around safely, gawk at the animals and play with the other kids.

One night the family was having a birthday party which went on after we had gone to bed. Granted, we go to bed early (two kids, what can you do), but it was a little tough falling asleep that night.

One of the neighbors in the compound gives a cooking class which I took. At 200 pesos it was fantastic and I highly recommend it. Ask for Magdalena.

The Giron family is so sweet here. The host mother, Magdalena, is amazing. She cooks a great breakfast, and she has been very helpful in getting taxis and giving me advice on local trips. If she has time, she will even pick you up and drop you off at the airport. This is a busy household that consists of turtles, dogs, birds, family, and "adopted" children. Magdalena is an amazing person, and she has 3 Chatino boys who help out with the family laundry business in exchange for housing and education. She also does cooking classes at the home if you are interested.

The location is not super central but it is within easy walking distance to everything. Far enough away from the crazy business but very walkable.

Room Tip: The rooms vary. If you are planning to cook a lot, a few of the rooms have a kitchen to prepare you...
