We spent 2 nights with Dennis and Mireya and greatly enjoyed their company. Their hospitality made the visit very memorable. But not to be overlooked was the incredible beauty of this area, a 10-minute walk from town, with a magnificent garden, spacious grounds, and an incredible variety of birds. We spoke limited Spanish, and it was comforting to have them answer our questions in English. The room was clean and included a refrigerator, and both a twin and full size bed. Soap was provided but bring your own shampoo. We enjoyed sitting in the Adirondack chairs and watching the birds, including an owl, scarlet tanagers, and many others. The location on Calle La Reforma leads to a nearby stream and cascades called Las Mozas. We saw exotic oropendola birds nesting in a huge bamboo grove on the way there. We enjoy unique travel experiences, and this fits the bill. Cabanas Potosi is highly recommended if you want to avoid the noise, dust, and traffic in the center of town.
