What a great place ! Wow !. I have stayed in 5 star hotels, dumps and many places in between. And travel the world with my business. I also grew up on a farm, am an Eagle Scout, and appreciate all things that are nature.
This farm/hostel is a great place to learn and breathe fresh air. Javier and his wife, Raquel are VERY nice ! Any reviews that state otherwise are just wrong. If you are looking for peace and quiet; fresh pineapple, lemons, watermelons, mango, banana; fresh vegetables and mountain clean water, this is the place. As a WOOF farm/property, the organic work Javier performs is simple, yet important. The food was great, the hospitality was great and they are providing yoga, wellness, aquaponics, organic farming, and hydroponics. Cold beer from the cooler is only $2 US and the Mastatal bar is only 1/2 mile down the road. I will be making this place my "go to" for the next R&R coming up. And no gestapo bootcamp here !! They treat you like adults and join in on all the fun that occurs. It is laid back, natural, and relaxed.
