Like many old hotels in Mexico the Cabo Inn, where I stayed Wednesday and Thursday, has a rich history and is charming to see.
Built in 1955 and thus making it nearly as old as me, the Cabo Inn was converted from a brothel to a hotel in 1981.
Many hotels in Mexico are built on the courtyard pattern where the main part of the building is disposed around a central courtyard and the outer walls often have no windows or small barred windows only.
The courtyard style dates back to at least 6400BCE and was popular in ancient Rome centered on an atrium.
You can see the rooms arranged around the outside of the building with the courtyard open to the sky.
Cabo Inn has some rooms labeled to honor various Mexican and foreign luminaries.
Including Diago Rivera and Frida Kahlo, whose uni-browed, mustachioed face glares at you from walls all over Mexico.
These hotels usually have a kitchen and a cook to prepare guests tasty traditional meals and superb coffee at good prices.
Reasonable prices of around $50USD per night make the Cabo Inn a popular choice for frugal travelers.
Check it out, highly recommended by me, Memo.
