Last year my friend and I had the pleasure of staying at Christina House. The food was delicious! This trip I hope to take one of the cooking classes that are offered there on the premises. The House is a very short walk to the dala-dala (local bus) stop. Mama Christina and all of her staff are very welcoming and friendly. The double room last year was clean and comfortable. We were on the second floor, so we spent a lot of time relaxing on the second floor terrace. At that time, they were building the triple accommodation rooms. This year three of us HAD to book one for this trip!
The House is only a few minutes ride from the marketplace, and Mama Christina can connect you with Cultural Tourism Programs. My friends and I are volunteers, and Mama Christina does her best to be sure that volunteers are well taken care of.
I am looking forward to writing my review after I return from my trip a few weeks from now. Staying there makes volunteering an even better experience!
