My place is a traditional building in a historic and very calm neighborhood just 10 blocks away form the city center.

The house is built around a very ample central patio and has a large living room with a fireplace.

What makes this place different is that it is an urban eco-agricultural experiment in progress. The house is full of edible plants. You are welcome to learn about the process and enjoy anything growing in the house.

The room is comfortable and has a beautiful view.

The space
This house is a relaxing, chill spot near downtown. You can enjoy laying on the hammok or if cooking is your thing i believe you will love the kitchen, it has everything from clay, cast iron, sharp knives, condiments, etc.

The house is ample. It has a large open area in the middle where you can hang out or have breakfast with the morning sun. The living room-kitchen area has a fireplace you are welcome to use to warm up or to cook, there is always firewood available. Your room is comfortable, with an nice bed, a little sofa a couple tables and space to put your clothes away. It has a window with a beautiful view.

The urban garden is not only my house but a space where different and innovative ways of growing an urban edible plant garden are taking place.
In the roof of the house is a 7 X 4m greenhouse where we have tropical weather plants like mexican and peruvian chiles, basil, uchuas, tomatoes and chayote. Outside the greenhouse and scattered all over the house are medicinal and aromatic plants like fennel, oregano, thyme, cilantro, parsley, arugula, chard, rosemary, different mints and flowers.
Its important to say the house doesn't have any soil, its all built, so all the growing takes place in wooden structures which recicle water. The house also has a worm-farm on the roof so all the organic waste has a use.
Guests in the house are welcome to eat as well as to learn from the garden. If you are into organic growing or eating this is a very interesting place to stay at.

Guest access
Besides their room guests have access to the living room-fireplace-kitchen area as well as to all the open air spaces which include the central patio whith nice chill out spots, and the rooftop greenhouse which is a pretty cool spot.

Other things to note
All the furniture in the house is made with recycled wood and were made here in the house.

In this house we encourage a responsible use of water, and an organized garbage disposal.

I need to mention that allthough i have a payed internet service, in this area of San Cristobal the service is not the best and ocationally we are out of internet for a few hours or a full day, this doesnt happen often but i does happen once in a while.

Location

San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico

Cuxtitali is a traditional neighborhood. It is very calm and most people in the area have been living here for generations, so most of the people in the area know each other, than makes it very safe. It is a step away from the downtown area.
