Hi! My name is Arielle, and I am currently doing a program called Remote Year. That means I'm working remote while traveling abroad, writing about all the cool places I see in Latin America. Arielle Calderon My last stop of the program is Mexico City, Mexico, and I heard about a "Snake Airbnb" close by. I obviously had to check it out.

At only $208 a night, it actually turned out to be pretty cheap per person. airbnb.com However, there is a two-night minimum, so plan accordingly. So, how did we get there? We took an Uber from Mexico City to Naucalpan. The ride can be anywhere from 40 minutes to an hour, depending on traffic. Google We got there at night, and the Uber driver had trouble finding the place. Basically Uber will try and take you to the back entrance of the apartment, which is not opened. You need to input the address to the front entrance (provided by the host). I suggest pulling up the address provided on Google Maps for reassurance. The Airbnb is kind of in the middle of nowhere, and we had a lot of trouble getting Uber Eats to deliver us food. Definitely come prepared with food, water, and snacks! Arielle Calderon There were five bedrooms, and the place can sleep up to eight people. Overall, everything was clean and nicely decorated. There are also lots of windows! Arielle Calderon Pro tip: Bring a Google Chromecast if you want to watch Netflix! In the morning, the host (Patricia) gave us a THREE-HOUR TOUR of the compound. It's freakin' HUGE. Arielle Calderon The non-residential part is called Parque Quetzalcóatl — named after the feathered serpent God. The property, designed by renowned Mexican architect Javier Senosiain, is being made into a "theme park" of sorts, which is expected to open to the public in about three years. Arielle Calderon No snake roller coasters unfortunately (a missed opportunity IMO). First things first: There are NO actual snakes, just lots of snake statues. Arielle Calderon Don't let your fear of snakes keep you from visiting this place! Second: There's a dog roaming around on the property, and although he doesn't have a name, he's cute and cared for. Arielle Calderon We named him Slytherin. The entire property is very big, and the owner is planning to open an "animal kingdom..."

Arielle Calderon Hidden in one of the many caves of Parque Quetzalcóatl is an exhibit of minerals and crystals. Arielle Calderon There's also an entire medicinal garden used for remedies. Arielle Calderon And our host told us that sitting in this circle is supposed to help change your energy. Arielle Calderon It was very relaxing TBH. The design is reminiscent of Parc Güell in Barcelona, Spain. The colors of the tiles are insanely gorgeous. Arielle Calderon And the art installations spread throughout are super creative and interesting. Arielle Calderon Stumbling upon this mirrored figure in an open forest was slightly terrifying, but also cool. But the most BEAUTIFUL part of the complex is the greenhouse. Arielle Calderon The stained-glass ceiling reflects off the water and it is AMAZING. Arielle Calderon We spent the most time in this room and probably took way too many photos. Arielle Calderon Overall, the Snake Airbnb was everything we wanted and more, and you should add this to your travel list if you're in the CDMX area. Arielle Calderon Safe travels!
