A few people have asked for more details about Hotel Colonial — so let me add a few!
Hotel Colonial was originally built in 1875. It is currently 100% open and ready for guests (as you see in the pictures!!). The renovations they are doing are small additions to the already wonderful grounds 🙂 They have a website at www.alamoshotelcolonial.com, which gives rates (that include their full breakfast & home-roasted coffee) and more information on Alamos itself. You can also contact them directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To get to Alamos, you have a few options — within Mexico, you can take any Tufesa bus to the city of Navajoa, which is 45 minutes west of Alamos. From here there is a frequently-running connector bus that will take you right to the heart of Alamos.
If you’re coming from the USA, you can drive from Tucson (approx. 10 hours) or fly into Ciudad Obregon (CEN), which is only 2 hours out of Alamos. When I last looked, flights from Vancouver to Ciudad Obregon were about $930 CDN.
Let me know if there is any other information you are looking for — we are still in complete love with this place!
