Criteria for recommending accommodations
The accommodations are divided according to budget:
- Economic budget: from 100 to 500 Mexican pesos (mxn).
- Average budget: from 500 to 2,000 mxn.
- High budget: 2,000 mxn onwards.
Si reservations through the blog you do not get more expensive, you benefit equally from the offers, and it's a way to support my work when receiving a commission with your reservation. All accommodations have their direct booking link.
The hotels that I recommend neither invite me nor pay me to be on this list. I always choose my accommodations according to my criteria, I think it is the most correct way to be able to talk freely about the places and not to advertise for the fact that they pay you or invite you to sleep.
The hotels usually have parking for your customers, so you will not have problems parking.
