“I had a lovely two day stay at Samuel's place, which turned out to be one of the highlights of my trip. Although Samuel wasn't in town while I was there, he was easy to get in touch with when I had questions, and his family made me feel welcome as soon as I arrived -- Leonor, Mario, and Celestino were wonderful hosts throughout my stay. I loved spending time at their beautiful farm and the surrounding area. I even had the opportunity to go out to the fields with Celestino to check on the cows and horses. Overall a great experience and I highly recommend if you are looking to get away for a little bit.”
Bambú es un espacio natural donde podrás disfrutar de la tranquilidad de la naturaleza, queremos dar conciencia de la importancia de cuidar al medio ambiente.
“If you are a nature loving hippie like me, stop your search now and just book Bambú already. This cosy and eco friendly bungalow will not disappoint. It is located in a perfectly breezy garden that is yours to relax in. You will be showering with collected and cleaned rainwater and are provided with a large jug of fresh water to cook with and drink from so you don't have to purchase wasteful single use bottles. Manuel and Yanet are genuinely kind people and I felt so looked after by them. They helped me so much with getting around town, giving recommendations, helping me to find an amazing hike and sharing vegetables from their garden. They also gave me a private dying and weaving class (for an extra cost of course) and in the end I decided to order a custom tapete from Manuel. He is a truly talented artist. They also introduced me to some family members and friends and their sweet dog, Afrika, who lives on the premises who will protect you and give you cuddles. There's no wifi so get ready to unplug and enjoy nature or walk 2 blocks to the nearest cafe to connect.”
Nice place to stay, and spend time and in a small town. The first floor in the premise is the art gallery Casa Don Taurino, and you will be able to appreciate and may also purchase a beautiful weaving. Also, you will have a nice view of the church as well as have an opportunity to visit the food market, as well as the Mercado de Artesanias.
“We enjoyed our stay at Taurino's home very much. It is a large Spanish style home with an open courtyard. The room we stayed in was simple but comfortable with a shared bathroom. It lacked a fan which I realized the next day I should have not felt shy and I could have asked for one. All family members are eager to make your stay comfortable. Four generations live there and yet you feel privacy. We really enjoyed meeting Taurino's aunt and uncle. Everyone speaks Zapoteco, Spanish and English and they are all active weavers. Weaving looms are situated in different areas of the house. The balcony upstairs looks out at the church and I enjoyed sitting up there reading with my kindle late at night, listening to the activities in the park. The cultural community center is a new building and provides a fascinating look at the history of the town and the tradition of weaving. I hope to return someday again.”
