Fascinating snake house in Mexico City – Quetzalcoatl’s nest

Welcome to one of the coolest homes I’ve ever stayed in. We first came across this place on Airbnb, and couldn’t believe something so amazing was so close to Mexico City. It is a series of 10 apartments build into the back of a giant serpent. It’s the coolest house I’ve ever seen, if you don’t mind living in a snake god.

It was created by Javier Senosiain, a Mexican architect specializing in Organic Architecture. This philosophy of construction blends seamlessly with nature, so they both work together in harmony. This location is called El Nido de Quetzalcoatl (The Nest of Quetzalcoatl) because of the giant snake head that is the centre piece of the location. When Javier first decided to build the park, he came across a giant cave whose opening resembled the gaping mouth of a snake. This inspired him to continue the theme, and great a giant 18 hectare park, with 13 snakes twisting through it. Despite everything he has created here, the valley in which everything is hidden, is vastly untouched. His constructions are guided using the natural shape of the land.

As far as things to do in Mexico, this is an absolute must. I have never seen anything like this in all of my years as a travel vlogger. It is truly an oasis hidden away in Naucalpan, just outside Mexico City.

TO VISIT:

At this time you have two options. A private tour or staying in the apartment. Our contact for both of these is Patricia. Her email: mopacastillo(at)gmail.com

The easiest, and which that allows you the most freedom is to stay there overnight. It is a 10 person apartment, with a recommended minimum of 2 nights. This can sometimes be negotiated depending on the time of year. Get some friends together and split the cost. It is worth it.
