tubohotel!
check out this hotel where the tubes, er, rooms, are built from recycled concrete tubes. stay at the tubohotel and learn tubo-speak! “located in Tepoztlan – center of good vibrations, birthplace of Quetzalcoatl, center of the “Tepozteco Nation.” See mountain, climb mountain, bounce down mountain. If you can’t find something to do here, you are seriously activity-challenged.” at only about $43/nite, that’s tubo-tastic!
