Ruta de los Volcanes, Puebla
Built back in the 17th century, during the viceroyalty era, this lovely property originally hosted the families of the farmers who worked hard to harvest these fertile lands. Today it is an exclusive boutique hotel in the very heart of the magical town of Atlixco that still preserves the warmth and provincial essence of the old years.
This charming boutique hotel is sprinkled with beautiful art pieces, bringing contemporary and rustic decor together–sophistication and familiarity. You will feel like home here. From the rooftop you can see panoramic views of the majestic Popocatepetl volcano, the San Miguel hill, and the former convent of San Francisco as in a yesteryear’s postcard.
The valley lands are surrounded by fields beaming with fruits, flowers, vegetables, and wheat that give inspiration for the restaurant’s executive chef to create delightful dishes with authentic endemic ingredients.
Eternal Spring Bonsai Museum and Nursery Workshop
Known as the land of eternal spring, Atlixco has the perfect climate and scenery to experience a sensorial feast for those who love and appreciate nature. Visit and contemplate a local nursery as you learn and get a closer look into various flower and plant species such as violets, orchids, or bougainvilleas. Reconnect with nature and recognize all the different colors and fragrances. This experience is a true walking meditation every step of the way. Before you leave, you will take some flowers with you as a living souvenir of beautiful Atlixco and a reminder of how precious life is. We’ll also take you to the fascinating John Naka Bonsai Museum where you’ll be able to learn all about the species that grow in these lands and how to take good care of them.
