Property Description

Madre Tierra: Local artisanal culture with western comfort.

Madre Tierra is located between the local neighborhood, Centro, and a more western neighborhood, Rinconada. We are a short walk (10-15 minutes) from beautiful beaches, including Carrizalillo and Manzanillo. Across the street from the hotel is the municipal esplanade (central square) where you can learn about culture and folklore during regional festivals and celebrations. Behind Madre Tierra, is a lively local school. At times you will hear school children playing, singing or dancing.

Staying at Madre Tierra: Regional artifacts, crafts and murals line the hotel/hostal walls supporting regional commerce. The hotel is nature inspired with beautiful wooden details and plants throughout the hostel.

We promote respect, kindness and community. We strive to be ecologically friendly. This is not a party hostel!

This hostel is for young respectful groups and solo travelers.
In Mexico we say, ?mi casa es tu casa?: ?My home is your home?. Please treat it as if it was your own.

**Do you enjoy being active?! Because there are eight sets of stairs at Madre Tierra from the kitchen to the terrace! The nearby beach, Playa Carizillio, has 157 steps to get to! Madre Tierra is a great way to stay active. We apologize but with limited mobility should not stay here.**

I stayed at madre tierra for about 10 days. It is shoulder season so it was quiet but was perfect for what i was looking for. I enjoyed my breakfast, did yoga and practiced Spanish on the terrace daily. It is very peaceful up there and has a lovely breeze. It’s not in the party/young tourist area (aka Punta and Zicatela) but Riconada has the western conforta. I really enjoyed experiencing Centro, the local neighbourhood. So inexperience in comparison! Also, you are close to the beaches that you can swim at!
