La Casa del Atrio in Queretaro is situated on a UNESCO World Heritage Site in La Casa del Atrio, a converted 19th century home. The owners are avid art collectors and have curated each of the six suites with works of art for an in-room gallery experience. The hosts are also proficient in making recommendations of Queretaro attractions, including museums, historic buildings and restaurants.
La Casa del Naranjo — also in Queretaro — offers modern style throughout its public spaces and guestrooms, where any of the design elements can be purchased. Orange trees on the property provide what purports to be the best orange juice in town.

The six-room Chantli Mare in Manzanilla has an exclusive beach. A gourmet menu is presided over by Canadian Chef Greg Couillard, who creates culinary treats from rustic Mexican lasagna to Vietnamese-style shank steak.
