Item Description


Thanks to Casa Werma we're once again able to offer a stay in Mexico, an item that has been the focus of very lively bidding "rivalries" in the past. The successful bidder gets the added pleasure of knowing that their future holds the promise of mangoes, pineapples and practice. Anticipation adds considerably to this item's already soaring appeal.

The village of Patzucaro was once described by Frommer's Travel Guides as "perhaps the loveliest town in Mexico. Crooked cobblestone streets, smooth stucco walls painted white with dark red borders, blackened tile roofs that join to form ramshackle rooflines -- it is a town meant to be photographed and painted." 

One block from the town's central market is what appears to be a small forest enclosed by an endless adobe wall. It is, in fact, Casa Werma, "a tranquil paradise in the middle of town" and an ideal place for personal practice whether in the main shrineroom in the Casa Grande or the smaller Casita.

The invitation to bidders is for a three-night stay, excluding programs, involving one or two people; children welcome. Accommodation is a suite or the Casita. Food is available from the local market.

Patzcuaro is a four-hour drive west of Mexico City, four hours east of Guadalajara. The closest airport is in the colonial city of Morelia about an hour from Patzcuaro. Ixtapa/Zijuatenejo, a beach resort area on the beautiful Michoacan coast, is approximately four hours from Patzcuaro.
