Casa Tres Palmas
Enjoy magnificent sunrises and sunsets from the spacious third story roof deck.
Villa Santa Cruz
The pool is enormous and a soak in the Jacuzzi is the perfect end to your day.
Museum of Frida Khalo
Frida Khalo's creative universe is in the Blue House, (Casa Azul) the place where she was born and died. When married to Diego Rivera she lived in different places in the City of Mexico and abroad, but Frida always returned to this house in Coyoacan. The Blue House was converted into a museum in 1958, four years after the death of the painter.
The Red Tree House
Stay close to the centre as it is fab to just wander and people watch. Monte Alban is stunning and incredibly peaceful and if the locals have stopped fighting over who owns the road and you can get to the Petrified Waterfall, then it's worth a visit.
San Miguel de Allende
Cute town with lots of cobbled streets to wander. Very historic and many Artists in residence.
Expats flock there to indulge in their hippy lifestyle. The original bordello is an interesting place to stay if history is what you're into.
