Casa De La Luz is a great find for those wanting to experience Tlacotalpan. The accommodations are artist and practical...the best combination. Bill is a wonderful host who has good recommendations for sights to see and restaurants to visit. If you love early 19th c. Mexican architecture, it is a real treat to see so many unspoiled examples in this historic town.

La Casa de La Luz is an absolutely wonderful little place in a town that is northing short of magical! Tlacotalpan is a dreamy little place lost in time, and Casa de La Luz provides all the amenities (wifi, satellite TV, beautiful earthenware pottery and all the necessary appliances to make wonderfully fresh meals from the local market, etc), that make it easy to stick around for a while and get lost it time yourself. I intended to spend a night, but ended up staying for 4 days ...and would've spent much, much longer had that been possible!

The place is kept VERY clean and is located within several blocks of the town center. Most importantly, Bill (the owner) knows a lot about the area and is always happy to share his knowledge about this UNESCO world heritage site town. I certainly hope to return one day.

!Es un lugar precioso y me enamore con La Casa de La Luz y el pueblo de Tlacotalpan! !No hay duda que va a ser muy encantado con todo!

Casa de la Luz is a lovely experience in a fantastic Mexican town...Bill has done a beautiful job with this property and is a gracious host.. you could not find a warmer welcome in a more tropical setting....park your car and walk everywhere from this central location...Bill has all the recommendations for tours, local attractions, restaurants, etc....we have visited with him twice a year for three years as we travel throughout Mexico as travel writers...we don't normally offer kudos to bed and breakfast properties in Mexico but this little inn deserves them...

I spent 10 days at Casa de la Luz in December and had a lovely time. The guest house is Bill's home so truly it was a 'home away from home' for me. My room was comfortable and clean, nicely decorated had a great view of the garden - really, a mini-jungle. The many screened windows ensured good air flow so I only had to use the ceiling fan minimally.

On my first day, Bill took me on a walking tour of the town. He has done a great deal of research about its history and had a story to tell about almost every building. Much more interesting than reading it in a guide book!

The location made it easy to take day trips to other towns nearby and again Bill had all the information about bus schedules, etc.

The piece de resistance was having Chavo and Chi Chi, the house cats, around. Beats an impersonal hotel any day of the week!
