Bon Provecho!

"We stayed in Casa Bonita! It was an unforgettable trip. Pictures do not accurately capture the magic of Mahayana. I was blown away when we arrived. Chabely was extremely helpful in arranging our airport transport. Miriam was a delight to work with as well. She arranged a private chef, and massages and was always available for questions. We felt very welcome and at home. It is a short walk to town but far enough away that you can sleep in peace and quiet. We will absolutely be back!"  Ashley, TripAdvisor.
