Wonderful Honeymoon Stay
Perfect three night stay for the end of our honeymoon. The meals, staff and accommodations surpassed all of our expectations. La Danesa is a dream location with amazing activities and well thought out details in every location. The excursions (cloud forest hike and beekeeping course) were so unique, and the on-site chocolate making and cacao workshops were very educational and fun. Would recommend this to anyone!

We visit La Danesa for our wedding anniversary, it was amazing, we stay at the stables, great room, super cozy and romantic.

One of the great thing we enjoy was the peacefulness around us, having at home 4 kids this was surreal.

food is great, amenities area great, all the experience is a great one..
