It got cold in the central mountains of Mexico. So cold that, on a whim, we decided we needed to get out of town. We had never been to Troncones, the closest beach to San Miguel de Allende.
After conversations with friends who know Troncones, and a serious web search, we found Casa Las Piedras, made a reservation and jumped in the car the next morning.
You know that feeling, when you walk in the front of an establishment and think, "Wow! Are we really staying here?" Thus it was at Casa Las Piedras. Small (one suite and three rooms), luxurious, personal. Home away from home doesn't quite capture the feeling (probably because it is so much better than 90% of actual homes).
Breakfast was excellent and different every morning of our five day stay. Although every room was occupied, we never felt crowded and could always find a quiet lounging area to read or take in the sun. The empty beach was at our doorstep.
It is difficult for me to write this, because I'd like to keep it our little secret. But our hosts in California and the staff in Troncones were so outstanding, I feel obligated.
Gracias por todo!
