We have been travelling 7 weeks through Mexico and Central America and Posada Carmelita has been my favourite place to stay.
It is so lovely, such pretty rooms and welcoming ambiance. We booked ahead and stayed in the sunny large room at the top of the stairs. Two large comfortable beds, a wall of windows, a table, two chairs, a large wardrobe and a tv. Unfortunately the wi fi signal wouldn’t reach into the room.
The rooftop terrace was beautiful, with plants, benches and a gorgeous view of San Cristobal. On this level there is also a very large sunny enclosed room with tables and chairs, which I called the library. I often sat there to use my computer when I needed the internet.
San Cristobal can get very cold at night. Our room was well heated by the sun during the day, but overnight it gradually cooled off and would be a bit chilly by the morning. A nice hot shower helped with that and there was no problem with enough hot water. The bathroom floor was raised up, so the floor was not cold. There were also 3 or 4 blankets for each bed if you wanted that many.
My son was with us in San Cristobal and he had a separate room next door to our bigger one. His room had one pillow top large bed, very comfy. I loved his cozy room as well. The window in this room faced onto the hallway, which was a wall of windows. So it got plenty of sunlight, but stayed warm even in the early mornings. There was also one smaller window to the outside.
If you are lucky, you may meet Carmelita, such a very sweet lady! Her posada is amazingly good value, write her for rates and reservations and she will reply promptly. Thank you Carmelita and family for your hospitality.
