Omar y Lau son dos grandes personas que verdaderamente les apasiona lo que hacen, Eco Turismo en Xicotepec. Visitamos museos, cascadas, aguas cristalinas, y demás lugares de interés. Saben muchísimo y compartieron con nosotros su conocimiento. El café de la mañana es increíble, como cada perro y gato que convive con ellos. Recomiendo conocer Xico, y también colaborar en su proyecto. Toni colabora con ellos, y nos acompañó en todo momento. Muchas gracias por recibirme!
