The lush scenery of an old sugarcane plantation comes to life at Hacienda El Paraiso. The hacienda was formerly owned by author Jorge Isaccs who became famous for his book “Maria” (which was later adapted into a movie). The gardens feature a peaceful, romantic vibe coupled with the subtle sound of the local river flowing through the surrounding canals. Browse the small shop offering wine tastings and scented candles, and later relax under the shade of the gazebos while enjoying a traditional beverage. Guides will narrate the story of Ephraim and Mary while giving you a tour of the home here, bringing the literature to life.
