It's difficult to describe the magic of this little Shanti Community, but it's easy to recommend it to anyone with an adventurous spirit and a love for the great outdoors. This place is straight out of a dream. This was my second visit, and I plan to return again the next time I'm in the area! I stayed in Golden Dawn, another one of the buses on site, last time but was so pleased to try out a new home-on-wheels this time around. Tortilla Bus is so cozy - from the elevated bed to the cool tire chair and bean bag by the stove, we never wanted to leave! The mattress is phenomenal and helped us get the best sleep we'd had in weeks. With a few logs and fire starters, prepared in advance by Shanti's caretaker, Dan, we were able to heat the bus through the cold night and woke up feeling fresh under a clear blue sky.

Shelly is an incredible host - always attentive and gracious, making sure her guests have whatever they need to feel at home. She even accommodated a special request to ensure we could pay this place a visit on a tight timeline! She's one of my favorite hosts and totally makes guests want to keep this spot as a regular destination on trips to the Southwest!
