I had an amazing stay at La Colina Lodge. The energy there is so peaceful and I instantly felt at home. Clean, spacious rooms for very low cost, amazing food, fast free WifI, a beautiful outdoor yard with gardens where you can watch the sunset...this place is incredible :) You also meet people from the community here, there is a CSA pickup and artist who sometimes paints there, and a super cool art festival Sunday mornings. Highly recommend this place to the traveler who wants an authentic, comfortable, beautiful experience. I planned to stay 2 nights and ended up staying 5 because I liked it so much. Also, they recently changed management, and some major upgrades took place, so reviews from mid-2013 and earlier may no longer be valid.
