I have lived in and loved Mexico City. It’s a thrilling metropolis, underrated completely and with energy and imagination unlike any other. But when in Mexico, you don’t drink the water. It’s one of those ‘rules’. And that is precisely part of what makes Casa del Agua – literally house of water – so intriguing. Ironic even. The water at this Mexico City boutique is bottled, of course. Rainwater is collected through a teak patio and garden then filtered and purified on site a thousand different ways (including running over stones with the words “love,” “respect” and “gratitude”) until it reaches its “highest potential.”
