I loved so many things about Sol y Luna. Cisco was a great host and gave us top-notch tips on where to eat, what to see, and even the best ways to enjoy Palenque, where we were headed after San Cristobal. The room was lovely, with a comfy bed and an excellent hot shower. The location -- on a quiet residential street, pretty close to the market (which, being a foodie, I loved) -- made me feel sort of like we were staying with a friend, which is really the overall vibe of the place. (I was especially charmed by Cisco's two-year-old daughter.) Breakfast was fresh and filling -- yogurt, fruit, granola, local sweet rolls, and lots of great Chiapaneco coffee. Cisco was even kind enough to pack us lunch on the day we checked out, since we were leaving too early to eat a proper breakfast. I'd definitely stay here again.
