We were lucky enough to spend New Year with Caroline and Hampton. Paca de Paja itself is a simple but beautiful home, tastefully furnished and decorated by Caroline. The guest accommodation is spacious - bedroom, bathroom, living room and outdoor terrace - with beautiful views over the gardens and cacti walks. Everything here is so peaceful and calming. During our stay we were lucky enough to see a variety of birds, chipmunks, a coyote (and you can hear them calling to each other at night) and small groups of javalina - all very exciting.
What really makes Paca de Paja special is Caroline herself. She is an incredibly generous and welcoming host and manages to be both interesting and interested. We were very grateful for her delicious breakfasts and her advice on hikes, nature etc. We will remember with great fondness sitting with Caroline on New Years Day, sipping wine, watching the sunset and discussing the world. All of this topped by incredibly sunny, warm days and cool nights. Pretty much close to perfection and we certainly hope to return, hopefully for a week.
Cannot recommend highly enough if beauty, simplicity, peace and nature are your thing.
