Description

Very few old colonial mansions in Xalapa spanned the centuries without losing their original characteristics. Ceilings of roofing tile with wide eaves, thick whitewashed walls, high large windows with grates, flowered inner patios and gardens - when crossing the threshold of La Mariquinta, impossible to avoid this strange sensation to walk back through the tunnel of time.

 

Located in the historical Center, two blocks from Governor’s Palace, La Mariquinta is a rare intact example of the colonial 18th century architecture. Constructed before 1775, this residence of 17,225 sq. ft. has been declared a historical monument in 1985. Formerly known as "The House of Alfaro", it has been built by one of the prosperous merchants during this time of great trade fairs. One meter thick walls, majestic lounges, large gardens, everything recalls the triple use of these mansions: lodging, storage of overseas products and backyards for pack animals.

 

La Mariquinta also stands out in the cultural history of Xalapa having hosted the first university gallery and, recently, one private run by the current owners for more than fifteen years, in which great contemporary artists had exhibited.

 

The current owners decided to build accommodations to reach self sustainability. This is how the first Boutique Guest House in Xalapa opened its doors in 1993, combining refined facilities with an intimate atmosphere for each guest to feel at home. The upper section with seven rooms preserves the Main House style, and five elegant and exclusive Suites sit in the neocolonial lower section.

 

Between both sections, the Main House opens majestically to the 700 sq. ft. unique living room ornamented with ancient roof beams and antiques. But only reaching the winter lounge lets discover the serene atmosphere of the exquisite garden. Almost every rooms open around this captivating 10,000 sq. ft. garden containing rare tropical species as well as roses, lilies and tulips.

 

With its twelve independent accommodations and the 8,900 sq. ft. four bedrooms Main House, La Mariquinta is not just a turnkey Guest House, it is also a self-sustaining timeless residence located in the very heart of a provincial booming university city.
