Getting around

Taxis to get around town are quite inexpensive (about MN40/trip within the town center). Taxis could also be hired for short excursions outside of town. Shuttles to/from the airport or to other cities could be contracted at reasonable prices with Bajio Go (check Google for website link, from which reservations could be made).

Interaction with guest

Send me a message via Flipkey for more details. I do not reside on the property but have a lovely housekeeper who visits M-F as well as a very responsible house manager who is available nearby.


This rental can only be paid for online through FlipKey using your credit/debit card or PayPal (never by bank or wire transfer).
