After reading some reviews and searching places we decided to stay at Cabanas Potosi with the lovely hosts Denis & Mireya. When we arrived we received a tasty mango drink and a warm welcome. Their rooms are clean and tidy and the garden is amazing. This place is located just 10 minutes walk from the city center in a quite place full of birds and squirrels. you can walk or take a taxi for 2-3$. Near the market there is an information booth were they can call Dennis and he will probably be glad to pick you up.
We recommend not to stay in town as it is very noisy and with 10 minutes walk you are in an amazing garden and can really appreciate the true nature of this valley. by the way, the price of staying in a noisy town room is almost the same as staying in a wonderful room at Cabanas Potosi so dont hesitate too much:-)
Dennis & Mireya are wonderful hosts, full of information and tips. Highly recommended.
