We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at Casa de la Cuesta. The accommodations are beautiful, friendly, peaceful and spacious. The breakfasts couldn't be better. But what really makes this place special is the way that the owners, Heidi and Bill, are involved with and support the local community. We enjoyed visiting their on-site mask museum and art gallery more than once. They both shared their expertise and experiences with masks and textiles of Mexico.
We went on some day trips, recommended by Heidi and Bill, that were cherished highlights of our holiday.
Our mountain hike with Bill and a local botanist/naturalist, Lorena Guitterez, was a lovely way to spend the day. Bill organized everything for us including snacks and water. We hiked in the surrounding mountains and learned about the many ecosystems and plants that we encountered. Bill and Lorena will design a walk/hike according to your desires and level of fitness.
We also spent a day with Albert Coffee and went to a local site called La Canada de la Virgen. We have visited many sites in Mexico and Central America and Albert managed to teach us so much about the history of these sacred places through stories, humour and his archaeological knowledge. He had worked on the site so knew it intimately. Heidi recommended and organized this tour for us.
They also organized a La Grutta visit including towels and a beach bag as well as visiting Delores Hidalgo with a wonderful local tour guide.
I would not hesitate at all to stay at Casa de la Cuesta again - it was a real treat to come home to it each day - we really felt taken care of.
