My first trip to Casa Mojanda was in October 2005 with a small group. Since then I have returned to Mojanda at least three times.
Not only is the Inn beautiful, serene and truly heavenly to look at, but the owners and the staff are extraordinary in every way.
If you are lucky enough to get a cottage with a fireplace, someone will come each evening and light it for you.
The food is all home grown and prepared right on sight--they have the same kitchen crew from when we first went in 2005. And the soups are spectacular. I dream about soup from Mojanda.
It is family friendly in every way and it appeals to an educated--off the beaten path type of traveler. Many wonderful bonds and friendships have been formed during our visits to Casa Mojanda.
Meals are communal but there is plenty of space for privacy if you wish to be alone at other times.
They have a fully stocked video library and there are plenty activities if you want to do more than just watch the magnificient mountains move through the clouds-as I do.
Don't go if you are mean or cranky although it will certainly soften you and brighten your outlook on life if you do.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa Mojanda operates on the basis of a firm and ongoing commitment to the principles and practices of ecological tourism and contribution to the surrounding community. Casa Mojanda was designed to have a minimally intrusive impact on our local ecosystem and culture. We believe that ecotourism operations must at a minimum “do no harm,” and be sustainable socio-economically and environmentally, as well as harmonious with and actively supportive of indigenous traditions and cultures. When it comes to lodgings and resorts, we believe that small is beautiful. By keeping Casa Mojanda large in vision but small in scale, we are able to interact with our guests personally, and whenever there is interest, we will connect visitors with local schools, clinics and environmental projects. Each guest is a part of this ongoing process and your feedback and participation are most welcome. ... more less
