We had the good fortune to go spend the entire day at the Hagia Sofia nature preserve for flowers, fruit trees, birds, general fauna. We were picked up at our hotel by the owner, Armando, a descendant of a Lebanese businessman in Monterrey and his best buddy, a local, whom we ran into later into our travels, also charming. The day consisted of breakfast at the al fresco kitchen, eating the best quesadilla I have ever had, all organic and wonderful organic coffee to wash down all the fruit produced at the farm, exotic and otherwise. Then the tour began for just the two of us, of all their flowers, taking most of the morning. We were bedazzled by the color and the range of varieties of the species they were specializing in. Then we were allowed a siesta on a hammock by a river, which was a welcome cool respite from the heat of the day. And we certainly took advantage of it. Then it was a tour of all the fruit trees on top of the hill, which was really hot but entertaining, seguing into lunch, a wonderful lunch prepared by their resident cook on the wood fire stove, banana leaf wrapped chicken and fish in a wonderful spicy sauce and other items as well. Then after a long discussion about conservation, the world politics, world warming, yoga, the owner and his wife Lorena, another resident manager, Juan, and both of us retired to the water falls to go swimming in the cool river and bathed underneath the most wet and cooling "cascadas." The water massage the falls provided crowned the day. We were delighted by the entire project and as Armando said, "I am planting to leave a little something behind." We were driven back home by the lovely Lorena and arrived safely at about 4:30 in the afternoon. Not bad for a day starting at 8 AM! Thank you for the best time we had in Huatulco. We thought the price was very fair for the attention and time we received. We'd visit again.
