Villa Mareas accomodated our 3 generation family group which ranged from 5 to 57 with perfection. The house and grounds provided us with a plethora of activities to keep everyone busy. We hiked to all the waterfalls on the property and spent a good deal of time exploring the native flora and fauna. We spotted capuchin and howler monkeys, many...
