Barwara Kothi homestay in Jaipur, India

For many, travel is an opportunity to experience other cultures and understand life as the locals live it.  What better way to do that than to book a homestay. This is the best way to get to know your host and meet the local community.

Our homestay suggestions reflect the diversity of life, varying from the simple homes of island villagers on Lake Titicaca in Peru to the luxurious home of a former president in Ecuador.

Barwara Kothi is a guest house with real family history. The owner was on hand to lend assistance where required and rooms clean and comfortable with a balcony that looked out on a pleasant garden and parrots to wake us up.
