At a Glance

Country living goes chic at this six-room posada in La Barra.


From the outside, Casa Zinc is a beautiful mixture of red brick and chipped white paint, but inside, the boutique hotel is artfully decorated with old school desks and a bibliophile’s collection of leather-bound books. The six-room posada in La Barra was opened by the owner of the Trading Post, Aaron Hojman, and features treasures he has amassed during his travels. His flair for design is seen in the giant zinc bathtub that sits in an outdoor courtyard and tired velvet couches that are reborn with embellished textiles. The emphasis on service and amenities, though, is not what a high-end clientele would expect.

Note: As with all the José Ignacio properties, there are caveats. Those interested in a vacation here should first read our José Ignacio: Who Should Go or contact our Bookings Team for advice.
