Mochabá Mucuposada is located in San José del Sur, within the Campo Elías Municipality. It is found at a height of 2,350 meters (7,700 feet) with an average yearly temperature of 62°F (17°C).
The mucuposada has three cabins surrounded by a spectacular landscape. In a dining area separate from the cabins, the owner Mr. Martin Sosa cooks delicious meals of traditional Andean food with the hospitality that characterizes residents within the community.
Many activities are available here for tourists. The mucuposada is built upon a trout farm where you can fish for your own trout. During the day you can go on walks in the area, or take on a longer hike to Acequias. There is plenty of open green space if you would like to camp at night.
The charming mucuposada, one of the oldest in the Pueblos del Sur, can hold up to 16 people. Each of the cabins has a separate entrance, private bathroom with hot water, linens, and extra blankets.
From the main plaza in the town of San José, take the road toward the school and continue until the bridge. At the bridge you will see the entrance to the posada on your right.
