The EcoHotel in Pátzcuaro, on the cobble-stone road to El Estribo Grande, is the dream child of Mexican Architect Jorge Ramos, who spent his twenties in Berkeley, California, and fell in love with the idea of sustainability. Jorge’s dream was to create a space for international and domestic tourists alike to learn about Indigenous P’urhépecha (or Tarascan) culture and the natural environment while staying accommodations that reflect these same values.
Jorge has spent the last 7 years building the EcoHotel, which just opened its door to the general public in the fall of 2007. Whether you’re looking for a hotel for few nights, a gorgeous all-inclusive retreat, or a long-term get-a-way.

A friend wrote: Would I recommend this hotel to my best friend? Absolutely! I recommend this hotel for: single travelers, a romantic getaway, older travelers and tourists. A lovely, friendly little family run hotel a block off the Plaza Chica down the street beside the Biblioteca. Ground floor rooms a bit dark, on the second floor more light. Run by a charming professor and his family. 10 rooms, a flowery patio, well maintained. We stayed in one of the cheaper rooms. which suited us just fine. There are also some larger rooms costing a little more. Cable TV, hot water. Needed some housekeeping in some of the corners and windowsills but the rest of the room was clean enough. As in all of Patzcuaro, you must have reservations during Day of the Dead (late Oct/early Nov) but we just walked in earlier in October.

This delightful small inn should really be listed under hotels rather than B&Bs as breakfast is not provided. However, at a rate of $30/day single (one double bed) or $42/day double (two double beds), it is a real bargin. For families, there is a large suite with four double beds. The posada is located on a tiny quiet street just off Plaza Bocanegra (Plaza Chica) behind the library in the historic center of Patzcuaro. It is within easy walking distance of all major attractions and free parking is provided for guests in a lot two blocks away. The posada is immaculately clean and fresh towels are provided daily. There are two lovely tile plant-filled patios to relax in. We stayed here for 5 days in February 2008 and definitely plan to return. The friendly owners do not speak English so one needs to know at least a bit of Spanish. If you want a convenient location and a true Mexican experience rather than luxury this is the place for you.
