I have friends in Coatepec, been there 4 years. Though all the forum responses don't give much hope. At any rate I'll be there within the next week.The point is that Xalapa has cheaper apartment while Coatepec doesn't. About the only rentals that are available in Coatepec are houses and they are way above your budget. How do you know if Coatepec is better for your budget?
Looks interesting. Does what your suggesting include kitchen, elect, and hot water? I'll be in Coatepec in two weeks.Hi... I live 20 minutes from Coatepec by local bus in Jalcomulco. You can get a GREAT place in Jalcomulco for $1500 pesos a month. It is a charming, friendly and secure town right on the river. I can help you find a place if you want.

Yes.... There are 3 great places to stay.
In order of quality.
Dona Marina, Las Alcatraces, la Villa, Los Arcos.
If staying at la Villa.... Mention to Alejandra or Ritchie that I recommended them and you may get a discount ( my name is Jim Coffey ).
If interested in rafting try adventures sin limite or jalco expediciones.
For acamayas try la palapa .... And good wood fired pizza la artesania.
Hope this helps!
The best of places would cost 300 pesos / night.
I would recommend La Villa as a mid range alternative.
As for Feb. rentals.... Either my house or my mother in laws might suit well. Fully furnished..phone, wireless Internet... It is one of the nicest places in town. We are just deciding if we will Be there in Feb or not.
I can arrange having you look at it when you are there for the weekend.
Let me know.
Ps... I am currently out of country in Costa Rica ... But will take you up on the coffee offer in the future.
You mention renting by the month. What is the cost for renting a similar situation if rented by the 6 month or year span?Hi Gayla,
For some reason your account will not receive Private Messages.
So... here are my suggestions on monthly rentals in Jalcomulco.
It is easy to rent a place by the month unfurnished. Possibly an unfurnished place will come with a bed. Most places are between $1000 and $1500 pesos/month. this would be with running water (probably cold) and a kitchen area with no appliances.
Places like these work great for my staff who just need a place to sleep, eat out in town, and shower during the day when it is hot.
Many places would be OK for cats... some with private courtyards... some without.
I can connect you with people that can help you find places in this category.
As I mentioned our house may be available for rent. We have never rented it before... but as we are not there at this time I think it makes sense to give it a try.
It is arguably the (or on of the) nicest places in town. It has:
full fridge and stove
Full kitchen set up... pots, plates, cutlery
a closed in garden and terrace as an indoor/outdoor living.
A cleaning lady
I LOVE living there... and wish I were there all the time.
You re welcome to take a look at it while in Jalcomulco... just let me know.
The cost would be $600 usd/month... which may not be in your budget... hence the suggestion of helping you to find something more affordable.
You will LOVE JAacomulco... it is truly wonderful. I hope to make it my full time residence someday.
