Attended a reading by various writers at this bookstore. The quality of authors presented was amazing for this small town, and the setting was a delight! We attended a dinner following the discussion, and enjoyed a delicious meal. Quite a surprise for us all!

This is our go-to place whenever we are in Tepotzlan. A lovely and expansive outdoor garden where you can really make an afternoon of it (I think some people do) - with a hammock and swings, lots of space to run around, and top views...More
