Most romantic hotel – Hotel Los Arcos
There is a reason that Hotel Los Arcos has an amazing atmosphere, because the original colonial house was built back in 1572. The hotel is about 100 meters from Plaza Borda Square. Despite the fact that the hotel does not offer the same luxury that some might have come to expect with beach resorts, the truth is that the 16th Century corridors framed arches and magnificent Spanish style courtyard really set the hotel apart from many of its counterparts.
Perhaps it is the historic value that the hotel offers, perhaps it has to do with the fact that guests are relatively secluded, but it remains one of the most romantic options near the Grutas de Cacahuamilpa National Park.
