Following my partner's review, if you want to be away from the noise of the city this is the place for you. You can organise with Jani and Carlos to go to the city with them. otherwise you can take the bikes just mind yourself it gonna be a long ride. You will need to be organised with your groceries (there is nothing near by). Contact any of us if you want any more information.

So much to say! Stayed with my partner 4 weeks, and for both of us was such an amazing experience!
Jani and Carlos are both wonderful people, extremely friendly and kind. In 2 occasions my partner got sick and they drove us to Boca and Veracruz to see 2 doctors without hesitation.
The place is beautiful, very peaceful, just be aware that if you are going by yourself can be lonely... You'll get a nice tiny house to stay. Jobs are easy and they give us plenty of flexibility about the work hours. 2 pools to relax in the evenings.
