We arrived at Casa San Marcos after a week in the jungle ready for a sumptuous stay being spoilt with a little extra luxury. We weren't disappointed. Our room was lovely and very comfortable and he location perfect. The bed and linen especially comfy. But I was particularly impressed with all the staff and Mayra the owner who was delightful and welcoming and concerned for my partner who was ill when we arrived. Mayra generously invited me to join her for a wander with fab commentary around the city with a family which was great while my partner slept. Also the gallery has some stunning paintings and the house is filled with gorgeous rare pieces for sale and I came away with two purchases one from each that I love!
