About this listing
This special cabin is built of superadobe (earth) and has loft, kitchenette, private bathroom and a rocket mass heater (a special kind of oven). You will love the feel. Welcome to your beautiful, comfortable, private little space in San Cristóbal!
The cabin was built by Cato Arce of Moradas Verdes with superadobe (earth bags) and a lot of love for detail.
You can use our washing machine.
We also have a temazcal (traditional sauna). If you would like to use it, we will arrange for a fee of 500 pesos covering the wood and the time to prepare it for you.
Kjell offers city tours and hikes in the mountains around San Cristóbal.
Rosario offers cooking classes for some Mexican and Thai dishes as well as Thai massage.
Interaction with guests
We are happy to give tips about San Cristóbal and Chiapas. Both of us are anthropologists, environmentalists and Kjell works as a tourist guide sometimes.
We also work with indigenous communities in the rainforest of Chiapas and sometimes have guests from the communities here at the house.
Our kids grow up with German and Spanish as first languages. Galileo (7) knows Portuguese and English as well and if you like kids, you can have a chat with him, too...
Very quiet, almost rural neighbourhood called "El Lago" 15 minutes walk from the city center.
The municipal sports center is just around the corner.
Attention: Due to the visit of the Pope the access door to our shortcut route to the center of town has been closed. It is still possible to step through a gap in the wall, but it is a bit adventurous. Else you have to take a taxi (30 pesos) or walk an extra 15 minutes to get to the center.
We are working on fixing this problem. I will remove this notice as soon as we have.
15 minutes walk to the city center, 10 minutes walk to the bus station (Cristóbal Colón). Taxis cost 35 pesos and take you anywhere in town (40 late at night).
Other things to note
We can add an extra bed. Normally it is for just 2 persons.
Smoking outside only.

Kjell: I am a global citizen working to make the world a better place. Right now I am focussing a lot of energy on solving the climate crisis, i.e. getting the transition from fossil to clean energy going. I am also interested in languages, cultures, history, etc.
Rosario: I like to chat with people. I care about others. I like to do sports.
