You can reach us by flying into
Mexico City and then taking the Estrella Roja luxury
bus directly from inside the airport to the CAPU bus
station in nearby Puebla. You can then take a bus to
Tlaxcala on the Verdes bus line; buses leave about
every 20 minutes. Or we can arrange to pick you up
in Puebla for the 30 mile trip to our Mexican
Country Villa for an additional fee of $30 USD.
Alternatively, you can take an authorized taxi from
the Mexico City airport to the TAPO bus station,
then travel by first class bus directly to Tlaxcala.
Buses leave from the ATAH bus lines about every 20
minutes. There are always taxis available outside La
Central (the Tlaxcala bus station), or if you
prefer, we can arrange to pick you up at the
station, free of charge.
Taxis and buses are readily available and
inexpensive for your transportation while here, or
we will be happy to take you on
local tours and day trips. according to your
Driving Directions From Mexico City
Driving east from Mexico City on the
toll freeway 150D (“autopista de cuota”), turn off
onto Mexico 117D at San Martin Texmelucan. It is
about 23 km from San Martin to Tlaxcala.
There are two ways to get to San Juan Totolac and
the Quinta Amada B&B from this point. The shortest
and most direct route is via our neighboring town to
the west, Panotla (but the turnoff to it can be hard
to find, since there is no highway sign marking it).
Or you can take the Tlaxcala City turnoff and
backtrack 1.5 km to San Juan Totolac.
Shortly after the 19 km marker, look for a
pedestrian overpass with a green highway sign that
Ciudad de Tlaxcala
Cuna de la Nacion
Almost immediately thereafter
you will see another highway sign that reads:
Shortly after that one is
The turnoff to Panotla is just after
this second sign and the 20 km marker. It is a
narrow paved road—the first road on your right after
the second Campo Militar sign. Look for the soccer
field on your right just before turning. Follow this
road to the traffic light, then turn left onto the
two-lane federal highway. Continue on this road
about 1 km. You will see a Pemex gas station on your
left and an overpass up ahead. Cross the overpass
and turn left onto the first street after the
overpass. This is our street, Calle 20 Metros. Drive
about halfway up the hill to La Quinta Amada, #37,
on the right hand side.
Stay on highway 117D until you get to
Tlaxcala city and take the Tlaxcala exit. Bear to
the left and get in the left hand lane. At the
traffic light, turn left and cross over the
overpass, then bear to your right (a highway sign
will indicate “Totolac/ Mexico Libre). Follow this
road about 1.5 km to our street, Calle 20 Metros. It
is the last street before the overpass/bridge that
crosses over to Panotla. Turn right onto Calle 20
Metros and go about halfway up the hill to La Quinta
Amada B&B, #37. There is a doorbell to the left of
the wrought iron gate.
