TOSA La Laguna was a breath-taking first for my friends and me.
We were met by “Javier”– the lucky duck that lives at TOSA and spends his days making the TOSA patrons feel at ease. He allowed us peaceful alone time but was ever-present when we needed him. He is an invaluable part of the TOSA experience. We really made a great friend out of ol' Javier–
My friends and I stayed in the “Royal Suite”, the two-bedroom casita situated right on the water. To wake up in this room is the closest thing to waking up on the lake itself. There is nothing like it. The room was equipped for comfort. The beds are cloud-like, the snacks are gourmet and healthy, the water is immediately purified from the tap and the hospitality of the housekeepers made for a carefree stay.
We were provided three, three-course meals a day– all hearty, all organic and all vegetarian. Flavoured to perfection by Antigua-born cook, “Maria”, the food was an essential part of this experience. I especially enjoyed the “Watercress and Potato Soup” and the “Vegan Panqueques con Miel” the next morning. When it rained in the afternoon, Maria was on our front door step with Guatemalan Cocoa Caliente (Hot Coco), and when I felt a dizzy-spell coming-on, Maria cured me with some Lemon Grass tea and spices. Go Maria!.
Javier and Maria were so good to us that it felt like we were leaving a bit of our family behind. With that said, leaving TOSA was like leaving home. We’ll all return some day with the knowledge that we'll be welcomed with open arms– as if we never left.
