Why we like it?
The feeling of being at one with nature truly is unbeatable here, we love the effortless collaboration the hacienda has with the landscape. Boasting Central America’s largest spa, you can only imagine how important relaxation is here, we couldn’t get enough of the meditation gazebos – the perfect way to clear your mind. The only problem is deciding how to spend your day; a scenic horseback ride? An ATV quad bike tour? Or simply lounging by one of the natural water infinity pools, sampling world class cuisine and wondering how it took you so long to get here.
