The space
WELCOME TO THE GOLDEN BEE: 3rd FLOOR • The Golden Bee is a great space to enjoy the ever changing culture of Guanajuato, Mexico. The apartments view is a dramatic classical multicolored painting. We think this suite is a great place to sit outside and write or draw.

Check-in time is between 3pm and 9pm, no late check-ins, please. Check-out time is by noon (12pm) the day of departure. Please be mindful when you make your travel reservations so that you arrive and leave at reasonable hours. Thank you so much.

The Golden Bees Caretaker, Carrie, is a fabulous host, she will be there to greet you. Carrie is around and is happy to answer any questions. Please, always double check you have your keys when you leave and always lock the gates and doors.

The PANOROMANTICA 3rd floor studio suite offers one of the best views of Guanajuato. On entering you will find yourself under a large brick dome ceiling called a Bovada that reminds you of 18th century Spain. Bovadas are built free standing and are specific to this area of Mexico. The PANOROMANTICA has a new comfortable Queen bed and is fully furnished. The private bathroom has modern plumbing, great hot water, and pressure. The WC is separate from the walk-in shower. The bathroom counter is a beautiful piece of St Thomas Mexican marble. The floors are hand made mosaic tiles from San Miguel Allende. Sara lovingly designed the pattern layout and colors for this suite. The walls are lime plastered and polished with hints of glittering greens and blues. Art from Mexico and Indonesia adorn these walls. The amazing hand pounded copper kitchen sink was specifically designed for this kitchen. It has a filtered drinking water tap for your ease and comfort. There are two fantastic private patios that look over the whole village of Guanajuato and up to the church in Valenciana. The Golden Bee is built out of an eco insulated panel system called Convintec, it's quieter and the room stays cooler or warmer than concrete. Convintec is considered a lead platinum green product. It is a structural wired panel filled with rigid insulation, which is then covered in stucco. The doors, windows and gates are made of steel so you can lock things up for security but still have light and fresh air.

The Golden Bee is about a 15 minute walk to the downtown. You head straight out the door and down the hill. A taxi ride back up is about 45-55 pesos. There are also buses that go directly up and will drop you off right in front.

The Golden Bee is located on the city bus line, just step outside and walk 15 feet to the bus stop. There are large buses and small buses. The smaller buses go down Barrio Nuevo and the large buses go along the Panoramica, taking major roads into the center.

We invite you to shop in the local food markets and please remember to soak your fruits and vegetables with a couple caps of the soaking liquid under the sink for 15 min. Happy adventure cooking!

HAVE YOUR OWN CAR?
There is a 24-hour secured outdoor parking lot with a guard, one block away from the Golden Bee. Prices for parking: 3 nights -100ps , 1 week 200ps, 2 weeks 300ps, 3 weeks 375ps, 4 weeks 450ps. They lock the gate to the parking lot at 12:30 am and open it again at 5:30 am (there is someone there if you need to get in at closed hours).

We are situated in a residential neighborhood and it's only a fifteen minute or less walk into the centro. Little business and eateries are popping up all the time. A little food market just opened up across the street. In the morning they have different things delivered such as pastries, corn tortillas, and hot rolls. There is also a small hardware store across the street and paper store if you need to make copies.

If you head up the hill behind the Golden bee there is the beautiful old Mellado church at the top with a sweet plaza out front.

WE STILL HAVE SPACE AT THE GOLDEN BEE - FOR FESTIVAL CERVANTINO OCTOBER 2019!!! GUANAJUATO’S, AMAZING PERFORMANCE FESTIVAL IS ATTENDED BY THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE AND PERFORMERS FROM ALL OVER THE GLOBE.

At The Cervantino Festival there are many genres of performance art including contemporary and traditional dance, theater, opera, visual arts, film, literature and some fantastic multimedia pieces. There are many workshops, exhibits and conferences that happen simultaneously (mostly in Spanish). Events are held in venues throughout the city and outskirts. Performances happen both indoor and outdoor, in plazas, tunnels, side streets, theaters, cathedrals, historical buildings, parks, and museums. It is a treasure hunt full of amazing surprises. We have seen some of the best work at this festival that we have ever seen.

"The oldest known name for the area is “Mo-o-ti,” which means “place of metals.” Later, it was called "Paxtitlán" by the Aztecs, which means “place of straw.” The current name of Guanajuato comes from P'urhépecha “Quanaxhuato," which means “hilly place of frogs.” ---Wikipedia.

BEE NOTE: Of the more than 20,000 bee species in the world, including native species, 2,000 are native to Mexico and depend on specific local weather, vegetation and forest conditions. The main differences between the honey produced by Western and native species of honeybee are in flavor, production capacity and colony size

Where you’ll be

Guanajuato, Mexico

This neighborhood is so fun to watch change. It is constantly changing with new little shops, currently there is an artisan brewery next door and little food store, hardware store and paper store across the street. There is also a kindergarten close by and often the children walk by dressed in costumes, lots of insects and princess' pass by. It's so fun to see them as they head to school. There is a hidden church and plaza above that nobody seems to have discovered yet. The parking lot that we use is only a minute walk down the street. Joggers are running by on the road in the morning. Mexico is growing rapidly and all around us you see bright vitality.

For most of my career life, I designed and installed large scale glasswork for municipalities and corporations. I was based in Portland, Oregon. When I moved to Mexico full time (about five years ago) I decided to focus on printmaking and jewelry making. I love to cook and garden, so we often have organic greens and herbs available for guests. And, I am an avid traveler when time permits.
