Don't forget warm clothes. Please note: Winter in San Cristobal is beautiful and sunny but can be chilly at night -- and most (if not all) of the homes do not have interior heating. We do provide plenty of blankets, hot coffee, tea and a cozy fire in our common room (great for toasting marshmallows!) But, during the months of Dec. thru Feb. we recommend that you pack warm clothes. But don't worry, If you don't have any, the local artisan market sells them for a very reasonable price!

We look forward to meeting you. Have a safe and happy journey!
