A lovely owner managed property. All staff incredibly helpful on local points of interests and wider trips within the country. Laguna itself is so peaceful and relaxing.

We were welcomed with a fresh fruit juice in the little restaurant overlooking the forest and lake. They catered for our vegetarian needs well. Walked along the lakeside and saw a howler monkey with baby and lots of...
