By far the best of the town's guesthouses, this family-run and exceptionally welcoming place has nine sparkling-clean rooms with fully functioning hot-water showers and a restaurant serving an excellent four-course dinner with Michoacán specialties. Some suites have fireplaces. It's around a kilometer downhill from the central plaza. Reserve ahead in butterfly season.
During the butterfly season from late October to March, Plaza Don Gabino also organizes excursions to the Sierra Chincua and El Rosario sanctuaries.
