We pass by the Teotitlan del Valle Tourist Yu’u every time we enter the village road making the turn off of the Panamerican Highway Mex 190. It’s a comfortable-looking building, although we’ve never stopped to look inside. To my recollection, I’ve never seen anyone stay there either. But, I’m not yet a full-time, 100 percent village resident. Because this particular yu’u is right at the crossroads of a very busy intersection, it doesn’t seem to be a desireable location. Yet, from reading about them, I know this way of experiencing rural Mexico can be rewarding and affordable. You can read more about the experience of staying in a Yu’u and how to make arrangements by reading this link to the New York Times travel section above.
