Casa de Dos Tortugas is a Bed and Breakfast property and not a vacation rental. The owners will share with you a beautiful Colonial home built in 1840 with the main house still with the original hand made and hand painted amazing pasta tiled floors, very high ceilings and beautiful antique furniture. It is ideally located within a short walk from the Plaza Grande, Santiago Square and the bus station. This means you have access to all the restaurants, theatres, museums and shopping within a 10 minute walk. There is always something exciting to walk to such as free folkloric concerts in the parks, dancing in the streets on the weekends and big band music and dancing on Sundays in the Plaza Grande.
We have two totally separate and self-contained bedroom suites to offer our guests. Both are very spacious and have wardrobes, air conditioning, ceiling fans, nice linens and towels and large bathrooms. The Violeta suite has two double beds and the Sarah suite has a king bed. The Sarah suite also has a large balcony and a small juliet balcony overlooking the pool area and garden We have recently added internet TV to the Sarah (King) suite plus a hammock and outdoor seating for the balcony. This suite is now $95 per night. Both rooms are light and have large windows, high ceilings and good air ventilation. Both suites are on the first floor so there is a wide stairway to climb. There is free WiFi available in both bedrooms. The room rate is per suite per night based on an occupancy of 1 or 2 people. The Violeta Suite could accommodate a small family.
The Casa has beautiful tropical gardens and a very inviting pool area and relaxing deck. This area contains sun loungers, tables and chairs and a bar. The gardens also have a breakfast patio area. There is a TV room in the main house as well as a more casual room for reading. The TV is live from the East Coast of America and Canada.

This house is a wonderful Spanish Colonial, high ceiling house with breezeways from front to back. The guest rooms are spacious and private.The garden is cool and inviting. Stuart and Vi are wonderful hosts and we enjoyed our time with them very much. The house is about ten minutes easy walk from the main square which is the heart of the humming evening life in this part of Mexico. There are restaurants and bars close by as well as street stalls and the Sunday ambiance of the folkloric dancing and artisans.
