I visited Monte Azul in July 2012 for 6 nights. I've been to many places in the world and I can't say there's been any place similar to Monte Azul. Carlos and Randy are great hosts. The grounds are beautiful and the casita is very comfortable. I don't eat meat and they created meals for me that were very well thought out and always interesting. I decided to try my hand at fishing and Adrian got me a fishing rod and some worms. Now that's 5 star service! I caught 2 fish and they prepared the fish for me. I also travelled alone and found no problems with finding a balance between relaxation and interesting activities to fill my 7 days. You have to try the open air light aircraft tour!
