QUEEN ROOM. This is our standard room, with an area of ​​28 m2 equipped with a Queen Size bed ideal for a couple. Maximum capacity of people: 2.


The women of Amatenango are potters, not weavers. The amatenanquero huipil is unique, has a radiant decorative rectangular area that extends towards the outer edge of the fabric and covers the chest and back with a broad band in red that surrounds the neckline followed by a yellow band. They are sewn in chevron stitch. The characteristic huipil of Amatenango may not be Mayan but African. The large number of African slaves that were brought to Chiapas by the Spaniards had a great impact on colonial art and culture. According to an authority on the subject, this beautiful huipil by colors and style, definitely has an African touch.


This huipil can be seen in the foot bed adapted with leather and cushions. The cross of the niche of this room is a contest work of the best potter in the Juana Gómez region, along with the candelabra found in the corridor, as well as the jaguars located in the corridors on the ground floor.
