Each room contains a queen size bed, a desk light, a fan, towel racks and an under-the-bed storage area. Bathroom houses with private showers and toilets are available on the grounds. There’s even the opportunity to take traditional Mexican cooking classes with local celebrity chef Ana Garcia (Mexico’s own Rachel Ray).
All this, in Tepoztlan, Morelos, an off-the-beaten-track destination just one hour south of Mexico City that's known for its authentic Mexican village vibe, exotic ice cream flavors and the pyramid of El Tepozteco.
Oh, and remember the affordable part? Rates are just 500 pesos (that’s $43 US dollars) a night!
