Mesón de Abundancia

Top choice hotel in Real de Catorce

Easily one of Mexico's most atmospheric hotels, this 19th-century former treasury building has been wonderfully renovated and is Real's best option by far. A massive old-fashioned key lets you into one of 11 rooms; these are grandly appointed and tastefully decorated with local crafts and make a cozy retreat on chilly nights. Rates are significantly lower outside high season.
