A very large thatched roof hut, on the second floor, with a small balcony overseeing the street. It has a mezzanine with a double-size mattress. Has plenty of charm if you do not mind the rusticity of a thatched roof and the surrounding noises, from the street and from the neighbors. Most of our guests call it the tree-house.

- Help us keep our low rates: save water and electricity. Shut off fan and lights when you leave the room.

Help us be environmentally responsible:
- by reducing the amount of detergent used: If you plan in re-using the towel, do not through it on the floor.
- by recycling and reusing organic materials in a compost process.
- by reducing our impact on the underground phreatic and aquifer waters: do not flush medications or any chemicals in the toilet bowl.
Casitas Kinsol tries to limit our impact on the environment. Help us by reusing the plastic bottles of water: refill them with the purified 5 gallons water bottle available in the kitchen area.

For those of you using free music or free video and movies downloads: you are most likely using a PPP (point-to-point protocol) applications where you allow this application to use the hard disk of your computer or of your electronic device for storage for other users.

Please disable (temporarily) these applications, while you are at Casitas Kinsol.

If no one of the Casitas Kinsol’s staff is on the property, you can reach either Christine or Alain on their mobile phones. You can call them free of charge from the desk phone that is located in the common area, below the information panel.

Born in 1962 in Germany, my mom was from Colombia, my dad was from Germany. Since the age of 5, I moved from country to country and was exposed to many different cultures: Spain, Columbia, Mexico, Panama, Dominican Republic, Belize, Guatemala, Switzerland, France, USA … My parents would never speak to my brother and myself in German, therefore, I never learnt German.
My mom, Luz Acevedo was an artist who exposed her oil paintings in major permanent expositions such as “El Jardin del Arte” in Mexico City, and Tepozotlan (Mexico State).
I studied to be a biochemist engineer and I discovered at a young age that I love paintings. I self taught myself different techniques such as oil color, water colors, acrylics and collage. My love for arts and my passion as a bio-engineer bring me to my current project: acrylic painting on natural leaves from plants found in the Yucatan peninsula (by Cancun on the Mexican Riviera) in Mexico.
I have worked in the eco-archaeological park, Xcaret, as a project leader in 3 major departments: the botanical garden, the aquarium and the cultural events.
I am an active member of an Aztec dancing group, the “Concheros”: these dancers aim at preserving the traditions of the natives and they strive in providing the coming generations with the values and philosophy of life of the native ethnic groups that show deep respect to the nature.
My current project combines the essence of nature with the techniques of acrylic painting, depicting the expression of native cultures in their traditional costumes and attires. The main challenge of the project resides in the diversity of supports on which I paint. The uniqueness of each leave leads to an ad-equation of the painting technique and therefore each piece is unique cannot be reproduce.
