The heart of Mint Santa Teresa is the communal lounge area that features locally-sourced materials, like the ceilings that are made of “caña brava” (a type of grass) and have been installed in an intricate fishbone pattern. Local craftsmen have also created custom furniture made of local wood and using traditional techniques in new ways.
