Rigoberta Menchú Room
An inexpensive, small room. If you need a larger space please consider the 2nd or 3rd level rooms.
Still the object of death threats when she returns to her native Guatemala, Rigoberta Menchu, a Quiche Mayan woman who gained prominence helping to organize and defend the rights of indigenous peoples and who now is forced to live in exile, has become widely known as a leading advocate of Indian rights and ethno-cultural reconciliation, not only in Guatemala but in the Western Hemisphere generally, and her work has earned her several international awards, including the Nobel Peace Prize in 1992.
This cozy room honoring her, contains one double bed, a desk, two chairs, and excellent art works and graphics. Furnishings, floors windows and doors, are recycled from vintage buildings, both Mayan and Spanish. Facing a green tropical garden and colonial stone well, this space is newly air-conditioned. Located on the ground floor in a rear patio area and facing a colonial well, this room is small and well appointed with excellent graphics and works of art.
Book either the MENCHU or the MENDEZ room, and you may end up in the other one. The two rooms are interchangeable.
