    I wanted to come to this place for a while so my expectations were high. We were picked up by our driver in Mexico City and drove about 6 hrs into Veracruz. We chose this route because we were looking for an adventure. The drive although long was great because we got to enjoy espectacular views as we drove through the mountains. At one point it felt like we were so high up that we could touch the clouds. When we finally made it into the hotel, the staff showed us the room where we were going to stay for the weekend. The place was cozy, clean, rustic, and spacious. The view was spectacular but the magic started when it got dark because the green lawn that view the lake was covered with fire flies creating a net of light. The whole weekend was packed with activities: jogging in the morning, then kayaking (here is were I finally got a nice tan!) then dinner at the beach. Water was warm and soothing and food was delicious and healthy (fresh seafood since we were in the Golf). Next morning after yoga at the pier and a healthy breakfast (papaya, organic eggs, toast, tea) we drove to the water falls through the rain forest then hiked to get into Velo de Novia (bride's veil) and then into Poza Reina (queen's pool?) close by. We took plenty of pictures of such beautiful and refreshing place. On the way back we made a deviation into Catemaco for an icrecream and enjoyed a typical dance by the local in the plaza. At night we prepared for the Temazcal which I was so looking forward to enjoy. The Temazcal area was perfumed with incense, candle light, relaxing music, etc. We bathed in clay then proceeded to go to the sauna, meditated, then finished it with a Nacimiento de Agua (clearwater coming from the mountain) bath...soo cold that made me scream...ok, I was the only one screaming everybody else seemed to enjoy the cool water. The next day we were prepared to head back to Mexico City...but we had to make a stop in Puebla to enjoy some Mole Poblano right from the source. mmmh! Overall this place is a gift from nature. Come prepared with mosquito repellent as it is the only thing I didn't enjoy. If in NYC I'll stay at the Ritz, but here my expectations were absolutely met! Thank you, I am definitely coming back!

    It is well hidden in the other side of the Lake of Catemaco. It has the most wonderful view and if you like nature you'll love this place. The people are very kind and this place is kind of hollistic but not leaving out the fun for wild sports like bike, atv's in the jungle, waterski, fishing and hiking. There beautiful cascades nearby and the beach is twenty minutes from here. There are also hikes to see wild birds for bird lovers because all migrating birds stop here during the winter. All Bedrooms are comfartable but you won't want to be there, because the town is very nce and full of magicians or wizards and the folklore is interesting.
    Thanks I had a graet time.

    We paid $160 for 2 nights in advance. The website showed a beautiful place - spacious and pretty. But when we arrived it was a small property and well below what they showed on the website. Was portrayed as a 4 start type property but was more like a 2 star. The 8 mile road to the property was rutted and full of potholes. Asked for a lake room while we reserved and were instead offered another room. Place looked run down. We fortunately were able to convince the girl at the front desk to return our money and got the hell out of there.
