Stay with art
At the Golden Bee and Forecer Casitas, we focus on exhibiting contemporary and traditional art. Since we are artists you will see some of our pieces on the walls as well as works we have pick up along our travels. We love to meet and support artists as we travel. We have a collection of prints, paintings, ceramics, and more. Come visit and enjoy a wide range of materials, mediums and genres, ever evolving and always changing.
