Around the Neighborhood – Colonia Meteorológico is a truly local neighborhood that is safe, lively and friendly. Casa Laguna is just steps away from many small, family owned shops. Just up the street is a great bakery, BBQ ribs and chicken, Taco Erika’s, a cochinita stand, Dona Mari’s local “cocina economica” and several mini-supers.

A short walk away is Mango Cafe, Fuego del Mar, Rosa Sirena’s, Pizza Mike’s, Brisas Caribbean Grill, Madera Food & Art, El Trucko Tacos and a street blizzard ice cream stand. Also within walking distance: Ball Park Tacos, Deysi & Raoul’s El Charco, Rincon Frida Kahlo, Chile y Maize, Lo Lo Lorena, Tonicho’s, Basto’s and Limon restaurant. You can shop close by at the Aki Supermarket, the mercado publica or you can walk to Chedraui. You’ll also find stands in the neighborhood with fresh squeezed juices, Cochinita Pibil, tamales, tacos, fruits and vegetables. And what you can’t find comes to your door, thanks to the colorful vendors who walk or bicycle by selling fresh hot tortillas, tamales, Oaxaca cheese, ice cream, pastries, Mayan honey and more.

Casa Laguna is also close to the Salina Grande promenade, which is popular for walking and jogging. Also walk-able: basketball and tennis courts, soccer and baseball fields. You’re just two blocks away from an incredible beach on the Caribbean coast, where you can see a glorious sunrise and climb down to a deserted beach to go sea-glass hunting, walk the beach or just sit and read a book with your feet in the surf. Both the apartment and house provide fold up beach chairs. linens, beach towels and everything you need to live on a Caribbean island. Just two blocks away is the newly built sea walk with benches to take in the spectacular view, watch the sunrise or look for dolphins at dawn or dusk.

El Centro or downtown is a quick and easy bus ride (the 20 peso bus goes right by our house) or taxi, as is the popular North Beach, a swimming and sunbathing oasis with beach clubs or bring your chairs and find a secluded spot. Just 10 minutes by taxi in the other direction are beach clubs like Kin Ha, Nomads and Amazon, all with restaurants and swimming pools. Bus service, bikes or taxis make any part of the island easily accessible to Casa Laguna. There is a bike rental just 2 blocks north of our house.
