The Finca is located about half a mile down a rough track by the shore of the lake. This was not a problem because we were transferred from the port and back by the Finca staff. The rooms are in attractive garden areas, and ours was a detached cabin, with a private shady patio at the front. The room was built in traditional style, but with good facilities.
The most enjoyable aspect of our stay was the lake view from the open sided dining areas and the thatched covered viewing point, from which a wonderful collection of birds and butterflies could be seen. Also, if you walked along the lake shore, local residents could be seen fishing, washing clothes and the children playing games on the beach, and occasionally horses and cattle coming down to drink. Access to the lake to swim was from the sandy beach, it was shallow for some distance out,and the water was warm, if a little wavy.
The food was quite good and the service friendly, but we seemed to have different staff serving each meal, and it wasn't always clear, because of language difficulties, just what we were ordering or getting.
Having seen the other accomodation, further along the beach, that were by the road, and less private, we would certainly return to this in future.
