Hotel Mission Catavina

On a recent trip through Baja, I had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Mission Catavina on Highway 1 in the small town of Catavina, Baja California. It is located 118 km (74 mi) south of El Rosario and 106 km (66 mi) north of the junction with the road to Bahía de los Ángeles.The hotel has been refurbished by its new owners and is looking great. The restaurant is serving great food and drinks.

With traditional Mexican style, it was treat to spend the night, check out the architecture and have a good meal.

One of the courtyards with a fountain, spanish tiled roofs, arched openings and an interesting floor.

Carved and scorched wood doors with wrought iron accents.

Window seat and arched niche.

Wood window trim.

Concrete window trim.

Rooms are reasonably priced at about $90. They offer a discount if you have an FM2 or FM3. Pets are allowed with an extra fee. The Hotel Mission Catavina is a great hotel.

Baja Architects

The architect you choose to design a home in Baja is an important decision. Architects offer different levels of service and its important to pick a company that can meet all of your architectural design needs. 

There are many things to consider when choosing an architect.  It is important  to consider if an architectural design company has experience in Baja and understands the climate well.

Temperatures can vary drastically from cool nights to very hot days all in the same 24 hours.  In some locations, such as La Ventana, El Sargento and Los Barilles, wind can be an issue on a daily basis. 

Eco Design & Build of Mexico provides complete architect services as well construction services.  Our office is located in the beautiful kitesurfing, windsurfing and fishing town La Ventana.

We specializes in the design of concrete homes.  We design homes of all architectural styles ranging from modern to  traditional Spanish colonial.  Often our designs combine a mixture of the best of modern, local and traditional architectural features.

Please contact us to discuss your custom home design today.
