Mexico City’s Newest Bed and Breakfast Offers an Eco-Friendly Experiential Getaway

La Palomilla Bed and Breakfast in Mexico City is offering guests an opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint while visiting the originally underwater mural Agua, by Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, to then fish-watch, bird-watch, and even sing alongside ‘floating’ mariachis in the water gardens of Xochimilco.

“Mexico is such a special place,” said Alessandra Pérez-Cirera, owner/innkeeper of La Palomilla in Roma Norte. “We have one-on-one experiences with nature here unlike anywhere else in the world.”

The tour is being offered to guests this April in honor of Earth Day. The 8-hour day begins at the Cárcamo de Dolores, a hydraulic structure located at Chapultepec Park -- one of the largest city parks in the Western Hemisphere, and also one of the most important because trees here replenish oxygen to the Valley of Mexico. After, you’ll sail through the colorful and lively floating gardens of Xochimilco where a banda of mariachis is sure to catch your eye. Along the way, you’ll spot Mexican salamanders, as well as other fish, birds, flora and fauna. In the evening, skip the taxi, and choose to walk to one of the many nearby restaurants for authentic Mexican cuisine, and return to the bed and breakfast for Mezcal on the open-air city terrace.

Palomilla, a new seven-room bed and breakfast is a hidden gem, affordable, and conscientious. The B&B, which officially opened this March, nearly instantly reached TripAdvisor ‘s Green Leaders, Gold Level, status. The B&B uses all organic, locally-sourced, ingredients for its made-from-scratch breakfasts and evening desserts. Everything from the custom art to toiletries and mattresses are crafted in Mexico.

Formerly a residence, the home has been thoughtfully renovated to include an outdoor city terrace, inside patio, dining room, and welcome area. Ironworks have been replicated to honor the herrería that was once original to the building. The property boasts colorful rooms, art by local artisans, organic toiletries, upcycled materials, and a low carbon footprint by sourcing breakfast ingredients within 32 miles.

Earth Day getaway includes:

● A two-night stay
● Homemade organic breakfast using locally-sourced ingredients
● 8-hour boat tour
● Evening Mezcal on the terrace

The Día de la Tierra package is available the entire month of April 2018. Package costs start at $544 plus tax based on double-occupancy and varies based on room rate and length of stay; a minimum two night reservation is required.
