Recent Central Mexico reviews

  • Beautiful home in great location

    "We came into town for a wedding and stayed at Casa Florida for the weekend. The experience was amazing. Each of the three rooms were on separate floors with private bathrooms. Other special amenities included a roof deck (the deck was a little run down), nice dining area and kitchen, sound system throughout the home and overall a beautiful property. The location is very close to city center, restaurants, shops, etc. The breakfast every morning was such a nice touch. Wonderful experience and would stay there again in a second!"

  • Lovely Apartment

    "My husband and I were returning to San Miguel for our 30th Anniversary after a hiatus of 25 years. We were excited to see the changes and get re-acquainted with a charming city we had very fond memories of. Unfortunately, we got very sick in Cuernevaca and got to SM in pretty bad shape. Abraham met us at the house and was very nice. We spent the next 8 days forcing ourselves to go out once a day for provisions, but we were very compromised. Thank goodness for this lovely apartment. Comfy bed, a TV when we had no energy to get off the couch...the occasional trip to the roof for a little sunshine and the beautiful view. Located a few steps outside the Centro demarcation, it was fairly easy to get wherever we needed to go. The cobblestone streets can be steep in San Miguel, so we mostly cabbed home for between $2-$3 a trip. If we hadn't been staying in such a well-equipped apartment, I'm not sure what we would have done. We used the kitchen mostly to make tea, chicken broth, and toast. Thanks for help getting us through."

  • Can we come back yet?

    "Hard to know what to write in a review for a place that is an integral part of what was a life-changing experience for our family. "Casa Azul," as it is known to us, is really a wonderful space, in a wonderful neighborhood, in a magical town. The casita/studio is larger than it appears in the pictures, and a lovely and functional space. The downstairs bedroom in the other house was perfect for our two boys to share; they are 2 and 5. And the upstairs bedroom was a perfect area for us. The courtyard was quaint and the large tree, garden and bougainvillea, complete with hummingbirds, make it lush and popping with color. And finally, the rooftop terrace was a perfect way to get some sunshine in the afternoon and see fireworks in the evening all over the city. The stairs leading to the rooftop are not for the faint of heart or for the non-sober. The neighborhood is a functioning Mexican neighborhood, which is just what we wanted. It is mixed with Ex-pats, families, businesses. The neighbor on one side runs a hardware store and opens early. And he was very friendly to us and our boys, as we're the neighbor family on the other side, the owners of the tortilleria, the convenience store and the wonderful fruteria a couple blocks away. These folks were kind to us, practiced their English as we practiced our Spanish, and we know their names and miss them! Best of all is the Spanish School on Orizaba (Josephina's School), a five minute walk away (15 if you're walking with a toddler). The teachers there were amazing, and if you're looking for Spanish classes of any level, they're really top notch. Also of note, as this review gets longer, were the excellent property manager and house keeper. The property managers were extremely helpful, efficient, and very professional. And the housekeeper was a gem. We would see them as we walked sometimes in the neighborhood, too. San Miguel is an amazing place, and Casa Azul was perfect! Thanks so much, Susan and Marc!"

  • A misture of Mexican and American: Spacious, Comfortable with Great Outdoor Spaces

    "Two of us spent over 6 weeks here during the winter of 2014. The house was spacious- we enjoyed having two separate living rooms, one on each floor. Watching the traffic flow well below us as it curled along around the Embajadores area at night was a wonderful view from the second floor. During the day being able to see so much of the city in three and four directions -below us and over across Gunajuato's many hills- from the second and third floors was a continuously interesting sight. The majority of furniture in the house is American and the many fans throughout the property were appreciated on warm days and evenings. We found the way up to the house from Sangre de Cristo Street, starting at the old fountain, was our preferred route to the house. A choice of out door spaces was appreciated but we mostly used the covered terrace on the second floor as we liked the views and the protection from the direct (and sometimes hot) sun during the mid day. At times we found the trek up the many steps a bit tedious (with too much luggage!) but this is Guanajuato and you get the views as your reward! Tracey, the owner, was very responsive and helpful in addressing our questions, needs and issues that arose and needs. There is so much to recommend GTO in the winter- the symphony, the concerts at Don Quixote, and Museo Gene Byron, plus the galleries, the interesting architecture and the "Lego building blocks" of the houses tumbling down the hillside..plus art and the various galleries."

Getting to Central Mexico Vacation Houses

The main access point to the central region of Mexico is through the capital Mexico City. The Benito Juarez International Airport is located in Mexico City. It is one of Central America’s busiest airports and its expansion has only been hampered by the fact that it is surrounded by residential and commercial property. A secondary airport is the Toluca airport which handles domestic and private charter flights. The Mexico City Airport hosts most major North and South American carriers. There are regularly scheduled flights that operate daily between Mexico City and destinations such as Houston, Atlanta, Miami, Las Vegas and Dallas. If traveling from other parts of the United States or Canada, you can route via any one of these major hubs. A bus terminal located outside the airport provides public transportation to other parts of Mexico City. If you plan to explore further afield, it may be a good idea to hire a car for the duration of your stay.
