At Los Arboles, Felipe and Lisbet Castañeda have focused on reviving the nearly forgotten traditions of the ‘Posada’ – the small local inn offering lodging and hospitality to generations of travelers. Since opening El Mirasol Cocina Mexicana in 1985, their tiny restaurant has grown into a several Palm Springs restaurants marked by the same warm and welcoming personality and a genuine passion for traditional flavors and wholesome ingredients.
Natives of the small ranching town of Tepechitlan, Zacatecas, an area with a proud culinary history that borders Jalisco’s famous Tequila region, the Castañedas’ have remained faithful to food and hospitality traditions that trace their roots back to the Spanish Colonial Era.
Mexican food traditions will always be revered by this small family business. But with the opening of Los Arboles, charming rooms and a relaxing resort environment are now as much a part of the experience as are piping hot plates of Chicken Mole or Shrimp en Pipian from Lisbet’s well guarded family recipes.
