    Elisa Ovalles

    I loved that the farm was organic, that we made our own snacks with the herbs there and the hospitality from the host and locals. Because I felt really connected with the host, the nature and the philosophy of the farm. The tour was an amazing experience since even though the activities were planned, it didn't follow an strict schedule, but instead we enjoy the mood and the host were flexible as well (we ended up exploring a temple, walking around a little). It was really fun and full filling.See moreSee less
