Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Morelia, Mexico - Updated 2024

airbnb Morelia
| 6 min read

Stepping into Morelia feels like entering another era. Located in the Guayangareo Valley, this beautiful city and UNESCO World Heritage Site is the capital of Michoacán state in central Mexico. At the center, a magnificent Baroque cathedral stands proud as it echoes memories from centuries ago. Beyond it, the hot springs of Los Azufres await weary travelers traversing the terrain on horseback. Within its narrow streets and alleys, buildings made of pink stone and decked in a fusion of colonial, Renaissance, neoclassical and medieval aesthetics sit as silent testaments to the city’s past. But despite attractions suggesting it to be a busy tourist spot, the city sees surprisingly few foreign visitors. Morelia is a city steeped in unspoiled Mexican culture, and maybe, that’s the charm of it. Morelia’s unspoiled beauty is only one of the reasons why the city is worth visiting. If you find yourself longing for this haven of history and culture, here are 10 Airbnb vacation rentals you should check out.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 14, 2024.
