Quinta Las Acacias
French-style hillside hotel with a mixture of ornamental European-style rooms and others with traditionally Mexican décor.
This French-style Quinta Las Acacias hotel is situated on a hillside overlooking stunning Guanajuato, 20 minutes' walk from the town centre. Some rooms and public areas are decorated in rather plush fashion, reminiscent of a European country house interior, and others take their cues from Mexican tradition. Shuttered windows look out over the surrounding mountains or the garden.
There is a plunge pool and an open-air Jacuzzi, a terrace ideal for relaxing in the sunshine, and a restaurant serving a mixture of Mexican and European fare.

Highlight of your Trip?: Climbing the Pyramid of the sun, Punting at Xochimilco was wonderful.AHC, Blaydon-on-tyne
My sister summed it up by saying that there was nothing that she would have changed, the holiday was perfect. Mexico was a delight, we had never been before, the people sincerely friendly and helpful, the service as great but everything exceeded expectations. My sister and the children thought that the cenotes were amazing as they were such a surprise but we loved it all.RN, Ascot
All of the tour guide experiences were memorable and we loved Mexico city. There was so much to see and do in such a short week. I would love to do it again, but over a two week period and over the winter months.JR, Castle Douglas
Highlight: The Visit to Chichen ItzaJL, London
The train from El Fuerte to Divisidero was great - good views with the ability to take photographs through open windows, good food, comfortable seats.JDL, St Neots
Highlight?: Calakmul, its a long journey to get there ( 2 hours from Xpujil alone ) so plenty of anticipation, not busy and complete freedom to walk around as opposed to other sites. Did actually see some monkeys in the trees too.DB, Teddington
Highlights?: The church in San Juan Chamula Visiting Tonina en route from San Cristobal to Palenque. A beautiful setting, only a handful of other visitors and complete freedom to roam.DW, Stone
Most memorable experience: The friendliness of the Mexican peopleGW Chertsey
"Many highlights: The views at Uxmal. Waking up with a view of the observatory at Chichen Itza from our hotel bed. The excellent guides. The friendliness of the staff (and impromptu language lessons) at Petit Lafitte."TR, Farnham
Most Memorable Experience: The visits to sights and cities open our eyes to a culture that is underrated in Europe. Security is perceived as a problem in Mexico. Yes there is a noticeable police presence, in comparison with the UK, but we never felt threatenedMC
Swimming in the cenotes, chichen itza, Mexican foodVH, Chorley
Highlights 1. Cenotes at Cuzamá - horse drawn cart through countryside to reach them 2. Celestun - flamingoes, lobster and ceviche on the beach 3. Uxmal Ruins- less people than Chichen and no vendors everywhere 4. Tulum Sian Biosphere - walk through Muyil ruins to reach biosphere route to the boat which you hire to cross the lagoon to the the Lazy River floating through the lagoon in natural water currents - stunning...5. Food everywhere we went was amazing; Kind Mexican people esp the Mayans; clean loos (didn't expect it but was often surprised by how clean they were) 6. Hire car gave great flexibility - easy driving and no problems at all.VRR, Sittingbourne
It was all great - a great combination of fascinating historical sites followed by some glorious days at the beach. Normally I arrange my trips myself, I don' t go through a company; and normally I wouldn't use a guide. But the Mayan culture is so unknown to me and the ruins so fascinating that it was very illuminating to have a guide to explain things. As I said, having Davide around was more like having a local chum than a guide. Loved the Hobbitland cottages at Chichen Itsa; loved being in Merida at Christmas time; loved Campeche and the Edzna ruins; loved getting to know all about the Mayan culture; and loved the totally glorious beach (though rocky) at Playa del Carmen.LM, London
Most memorable aspects were all the archaeological sites, which we enjoyed immensely. On the whole, we found local people very kind and helpful.DC Nottingham
I would have no hesitation in recommending the company and we will in future certainly use you again. Everything that was arranged happened to time which for what I had been told about Mexico pleasantly surprised me. All in all a fantastic experienceBH Tonbridge
Most Memorable Moment?: Hard to say as we enjoyed every part of our trip. We loved the mixture of ancient sites and other attractions so we did not feel overwhelmed by one type of attraction.DS, Paisley
Visiting UxmalDS, Ware
"All of it was great so hard to pick out one thing. We had a lovely mix of ancient sites, modern art, great museums and time to relax. The Day of the Dead celebrations were the main reason for travelling to Mexico in Oct/Nov and, thanks to our guide, they fully met our expectations."FA, Edinburgh
Highlights: Palenque site. The beach at TulumJB, Leatherhead
Our experience of travel in Mexico with Journey Latin America has been excellentSB Harrow
I loved the mexico city walking tour - really felt part of the city. Great restaurant recommendations too! Also loved everything about San cristobel!MK, London
Highlights: Discovering and enjoying the Mexican culture and despite pre visit warnings, being so surprised that Mexico City is nothing like as dangerous a place to visit as I had expected.Cw, Macclesfield
"Most memorable aspects were all the archaeological sites, which we enjoyed immensely. On the whole, we found local people very kind and helpful."DC, Nottingham
We thoroughly enjoyed everything about the holiday but were particularly impressed with the accommodation at the Hacienda VIP and the excursion to Uxmal and Kabah.SS, Liverpool
It is very difficult as pretty well everything was memorable, but if I have to pick something, then the boat trip along the river to Yaxchilan takes some beating. Weather, scenery, wildlife, excitement of a fast boat, and the archaeological surprises at the end ….RB, Eastleigh
Highlights?: The serenity at Uxmal and the delightful city of OaxacaMF, London
Most memorable experience: Going by fast boat on Usumcinta river to Yaxchilan where howler monkeys and a deserted site made an unforgettable impression. I could go on and on – it was all memorable!PH Victoria
Magical memories were created
"We feel as if we have a million magical memories that will last forever - sunsets over the Caribbean sea, ruins in the midst of the jungles, seas of pink flamingoes, crocodiles nestling on the banks of the Canyon Del Sumida. We were nervous as non Spanish speakers but we felt so supported without that horrible feeling of being over organized. Thank you again.”LH, Pinner
Oaxaca and Mexico City were the high spots for us. We found the Mexicans we met to be welcoming and helpful. We ate some amazing foot in Oaxaca where we also loved the botanical gardens. We loved learning about the history, architecture, politics and culture of this fascinating country.DS, Tunbridge Wells
Highlights?: Hacienda Ticum and UxmalJS, Nantwich
