Would you like to bring a group to Guanajuato?
Would you like to bring a group to Guanajuato for a learning experience, family reunion or a gathering of friends? We are scheduling our group retreats and workshops for late 2019 and 2020.
Currently we can host 8-10 people (double occupancy) in our eco friendly, art filled apartments and main house. Group leaders room is complimentary. Our indoor spaces include use of the main house, which has a contemporary large kitchen and dining area, living room for group work or relaxing, and a small sunroom for intimate gatherings. Outdoors we have a beautiful garden with many seating areas, a large outdoor terrace for movement, yoga, drinks and dinner, and a roof terrace for watching glorious sunsets. We are walking distance to the center of town (10 minutes) and a mini bus returns to us every 15 minutes, or so.
Please visit The Florecer Casitas website to see the wonderful space we have to offer.
One day additional workshops are also available for group members. These might include a tour of Guanajuato, trip to San Miguel de Allende, a printmaking workshop, a day long meditation and yoga retreat, a journal writing experience, Spanish lessons, a Mexican cooking class, or tour of local vineyards. If you have an idea for a workshop specific to your group, let us know and we'll be happy to find an instructor or tour guide.
Additionally, if you would like to bring your business associates for a brainstorming or planning session, or your family for a reunion or special event, let us know how we can help.

At the risk of waxing on and on about the many delightful days we stayed at Florecer Casitas, I would simply like to say that from the moment the big pink doors swung open and our travel weary bodies stepped into a garden courtyard, I knew we were home away from home. Liz Mapelli must be a seasoned traveler, how else would she know what the senses desire. Six casitas, each one charming, each one private, each one beautifully, artistically and immaculately appointed and equipped. And if there is anything you need, Liz will appear with a brilliant smile and flashing blue eyes to assist you. As the day wanes, whirl up a Margarita and make your way up to the rooftop to watch the sun set over Guanajuato. Call it a day, sink into a luxurious bed, dream sweet dreams, and then do it all over again tomorrow.
