Casa Lereé

Southern Baja

Part museum and part bookstore, this beautiful old building sits around a verdant garden with magnificent trees, including a soaring (and shady) ficus indiga. The US owner Jane 'Juanita' Ames is a historian and author, and enjoys sharing a wealth of information about the area.

She has one of the best collections of books on the peninsula, and has created several excellent hikes near the town; ask for a copy of the map.
