While Airbnb might be going back to its roots with an emphasis on renting individual rooms (read on for more about that), plenty of people still head to the platform for luxe bookings. This week, the Escape Home spoke with Marc B., the founder of CasitaMX, a popular platform dedicated to discovering the best home and interior design in Mexico. Here he shares what he considers to be the eight best Airbnbs in Mexico right now.
Azul Nomedolvides, Bacalar
You can’t go wrong with any of their cabins, but Amaru is my favorite. (Prices start at $267/night.)
Casa del Sapo, Playa Zapotengo
“Casa del Sapo is a remote cliffside refuge that makes you feel like you’ve reached the end of the world.” Prices start at $323/night.
Casa Etérea, San Miguel de Allende
“Casa Etérea is a peaceful all-glass sanctuary that’s both architecturally renowned and super comfortable.”
“It’s set on the side of a volcano on the outskirts of San Miguel de Allende.” Prices start at $418/night.
Casa Matilda, Puerto Escondido
“The latest architectural gem in Puerto Escondido is a brutalist-inspired beachfront escape located minutes away from Tadao Ando’s famed Casa Wabi.”
“Casa Matilda blends inside and outside better than any Airbnb in Mexico and sits right on an abandoned beach in Oaxaca’s luxurious Punta Pájaros area.” Prices start at $470/night.
El Nido de Quetzalcoatl, Naucalpan de Juárez
“El Nido de Quetzalcoatl features insane surrealist architecture by a living legend, Javier Senosiain.”
“It’s truly an unforgettable and one-of-a-kind experience, plus it’s an easy drive from the heart of Mexico City.” Prices start at $370/night.
“Casa Vagantes is a collection of restored homes in Merida, all beautifully refinished with modern comforts while maintaining their historical facades.”
“Ermitas is my favorite, but you can’t go wrong.” Prices start at $112/night.
“Cien Palmas is in the heart of Todos Santos, one of my favorite towns in all of the Baja Peninsula.
“It’s hands down the best outdoor space I’ve seen from any Airbnb in Mexico. It has a sprawling, gorgeous backyard with palm trees, cacti and more.” Prices start at $198/night.
Casa Cosmos, Puerto Escondido
“Casa Cosmos is another great example of merging inside and outside.”
“It’s private and remote and was designed for guests to remember that taste of life that is usually forgotten in the city, to have time to think on the importance of the cosmos, space, planet and nature that surrounds us.” Prices start at $242/night
