          Did anyone book in a way that allows for credit card payment, such as through Trip advisor, hotels do com or some other entity that will allow booking by credit card? We are told that Taita and the agent we are working with can only accept wire transfers, which is not permissible or convenient for all of us.

          Do the chalets have air conditioning? Is it needed in March?

          There is no Aircon, but the chalets are open and does have a lot of ventilation and a fan to circulate air. This should be fine to visit in March.
