Resembling a little piece of Florida, this smart, detached neocolonial with requisite palm tree dates from 1945. It sits in the shadow of the Loma de la Cruz, a calm location worth the minor inconvenience. Two spacious guest rooms occupy their own wing of the house, offering ample privacy. Enrique is a thoughtful and helpful host.
Check out the skilled artwork of Enrique's son: a terra-cotta bust of Che Guevara in the living room next to an unusual 3m-long canvas copy of Da Vinci's The Last Supper with St John as a woman. There's wi-fi in a plaza one block away.
