We enjoyed laying out the entrance and bathroom floors for the Queendom. Sara•Tink designed all the molds and colors for the traditional concrete tiles. What a huge project that was! Come on down to the Golden Bee and enjoy walking on the smooth shiny surface.

Enjoy an amazing view of Guanajuato and just a 20 min walk down hill into the centro.
This place is a work of art. Every little detail is both aesthetically pleasing & physically comfortable. I stayed on the top floor & had an INCREDIBLE view of the city & surrounding mountains. No need to consult your weather forecast for rain, you can just see it. It’s a bit of a walk to the center of town (at least 20 min), but the view is worth it, & cheap taxis are always an option. Other highlights include the skylight, shower space & the beautiful herb & cactus garden on the ground floor, good for a morning coffee or late night storytelling (we indulged in both with the lovely neighboring guests we befriended on the first floor).

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.
These beautiful carvings were designed by Sara•Tink & Theo along with master carvers from outside of Pátzcuaro MX. We had a great time working together. Come down and enjoy the textures.
This was such a fun project. Sara•Tink made the bees out of Plasticine and plywood. After taking molds of them we brought them down in our suit cases. Customs was bewildered.
