From the Zocalo: Cross the plaza in a northward direction to the plaza Cathedral and continue to head north up Calle 20 de Noviembre (the pedestrian road) towards the municipal market until you reach Real de Mexicanos (five blocks). Turn left down this road and walk four blocks until you reach Calle Argentina... You will see our sign on the right!

Located Near

We are a ten minute walk from the central plaza which is full of bars, restaurants and other activities. We are two blocks away from the city��ïÿý�ï�ÿ�ýs artisan market and the wonderful (and very interesting) municipal market where regional products can be bought such as copal incense, blue corn tortilla, tomales, garnachas. chalupas etc. We are also very close to the fascinating Mayan Medicine Museum where visitors can buy local remedies and learn about natural cures that have survived generations.
