We can't say enough good things about our stay at Finca del Sol. Sheri and Christiano have done an amazing job at their sustainable farm and B&B.

We stayed 3 nights at the smallest cabin of Finca del Sol. A cabin with a beautifull view on the Vulcano, however the 2 other 2 cabins might even have a better view. The many windows in the cabin make you wake up with this nice view, if you don't want that you can close them. I read an earlier...
