  • A corner of life in the middle of a desert in monoculture of cane of sugar, the project there in advance gives faith of the impulse in the restoration of species threatened.

  • A wide variety of tropical flowers along our hike. Once we reached the scenic lookout we enjoyed the view and the gentle mountain breeze cooled us off.

  • Great food and nice landscapes!!!
  • It is a very nice place to change of environment, since we have a fast pace of life in the city, and in this place surrounded by much nature and tranquility we can disconnect from everything, filling our lungs with a delicious pure air and recharge to continue our day to day. Best regards
