I spent the weekend with my wife, the location is outstanding if you want to relax. We stayed at the Mariposas Suite, the room was very comfortable and the outside shower great. You can easily walk to the fall. The food prepare by Don Jose was excellent. Highly recommended place.

I'm not joking, this place really is magical. It's truly beautiful. The cabins are clean and comfortable and super cute. The outdoor shower was amazing and had endless hot water. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. You're out in the middle of nowhere, and you can hear the animals and nearby waterfall at night while you're sleeping. Not to mention the...
