Set your Worries Aside… At Mexico City’s La Palomilla

Travel News, Tips & More, Uncategorized

Mexico City’s newest bed & breakfast, La Palomilla wants guests to tuck their worries under their pillow at night. “Worry Dolls,” that is.

As a PR & marketing pro, I’m always on the lookout for initiatives that are both great for all ages AND locally inspired.  La Palomilla, a unique seven-room bed and breakfast that’s located in La Roma, the hippest and safest walkable neighborhood in Mexico City, achieves both of these things and more.

In an attempt to cater to the type of traveler that so many of us are these days – travelers seeking local flavor – La Palomilla has started placing Worry Dolls under guests’ pillows each night.

The worry dolls measure about an inch and are made locally using wool and colorful textile leftovers. The dolls are then dressed in a traditional Mayan style wardrobe. The new dolls are an organic addition to the B&B, which features many vibrant works of art by local artisans and prides itself on sourcing locally-made goods, amenities, and foods.

What a fun souvenir these dolls would make! And one that doesn’t take up much room in a suitcase, which is even better.
