The Posada del Arquitecto originated in the 90´s, when Mazunte was a rural and uninhabited beach. When friends travelled through we needed to put together comfortable spaces for them to stay in, and so we spontaneously began to develop some palm structures and rustic cabins. These were built using the principles of Bioarquitecture, the natural materials found in the region, and a process of learning and adapting the typical techniques of the local people.
The cabins evolved into more solid, safe and comfortable structures, retaining the minimalist style that incorporates the organic materials around them. The wild hillside that witnessed those first rustic cabins of The Posada has now become a lush garden.
With the passing of the years and the collaboration of friends with new ideas, The Posada del Arquitecto of today has been transformed into something rather less Spartan, and a lot more comfortable! The relaxed atmosphere of a big open house for friends, completely respectful and harmonious with the surrounding natural environment, has not changed!
In addition to hospitality, today The Posada del Arquitecto offers many other services, a café with a terrace on the beach, an impressive view over the beach from the cabins, yoga classes, massage, terraces, Wi-Fi, all within a few steps from the sea a Playa Rinconcito, Mazunte.
