I spent 6 months backpacking through Mexico, and Casa Gaia has left me with the most amazing memories of any place I stayed. My original plan to stay a couple nights turned into a week as I came to know Johnathon and Klaire as friends instead of owners. Many days I went out to parks, football, or shopping with Jonathon, and many nights I stayed in to play poker, watch movies, or cook and eat dinner with them, their beautiful children, and other friendly lodgers. As a solo backpacker, finding a place that felt like a home was an amazing experience and turned my time in San Cristobal into my favorite leg of my 6 month journey through the country. As a word of warning, Klaire will not hesitate to destroy you in Texas Hold'em, and Johnathon has a powerful football leg both on the field and the Playstation. As far as lodging, the water was hot, the beds were clean and changed daily, the kitchen was cared for and highly functional, and the garden area was beautiful and cozy. So if you're looking for an awesome experience in San Cristobal, I can't recommend a better place to stay than Casa Gaia.
