Casa Lunita is located in the center of the small, yet bustling Villa de Baca.

The sala, portico, dining room, kitchen courtyard and portico are shared spaces.The garden has a couple of seating areas and there is a small terrace on the roof. The large sala has a projector for watching DVDs on the wall, a desk and small library. The dining room has a few old Maya and colonial artifacts that were found while renovating. The garden is an ongoing and exciting project. It has orange, lime, sour orange and coconut palm tees, succulents and cycads and ever-changing flowers and herbs.
