My husband and I spent several days at Casa Ridgway in June 2011. Casa Ridgway is a small guest house operated by the non-profit organization, Centro de los Amigos para la Paz (CAP, Quaker Peace Center). It's not fancy, but it's cosy and situated on a quiet street near the center of town. It you are traveling on a budget and love to meet people from all over the world that's the place to go . The rooms are simple and you need to share bathrooms, but the staff is wonderful, and there is a communal kitchen where you can cook. We have wonderful memories of the place and the people we met there.

The guest house offers private rooms and dormitory bedrooms with shared bathrooms, at modest prices. A communal kitchen and patio-dining area are available to all guests. A unique feature of our rooms is that they are each in the process of being dedicated to a peace activist. Some of these activists include: Archbishop Oscar Romero, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Mother Teresa, Linus Pauling, Anne Frank, Chief Seattle, Aung San Sun Kyi, Leo Tolstoy, and George Bernard Shaw. In addition to supporting the operation of CAP, Casa Ridgway welcomes people from all over the world, and promotes peace through hospitality. ... more less
