There are no words to fully describe how terrific my 4 days here were -- Ana and Robb go out of their way to craft a delicious and relaxing vacation, custom suited to their guests' needs. The location is calm and gorgeous with a spectacular view, each room is rustic yet elegant, and the kitchen -- breathtaking! Open-air, with a view of the valleys as one blends a mole sauce, it makes the lengthy and involved steps to Mexican cooking delightful. Taking advantage of the local community and produce, during the daily visits to markets (town, wholesale and famer's), we picked up lush and fresh vegetables and cheeses for use that day. Happily, I found that Ana effortlessly and seamlessly altered the menus and plans to suit my vegetarian needs.
I took the attached travel/security warning with a grain of ancho chile, washed down by a hibiscus aguafresca -- as a single woman, wandering around the charming cobblestone streets of Tepoztlan and its markets in the evenings, I felt comfortable and secure. Further, having constant access to, guidance from and even outings with Ana and Robb, I knew I was in good hands!
