Ok, Confession time, I never return more than once to a place. There is simply to many places to stay. Yet this is now our third time to Finca Ixobel. Do I need to say more :)
We just love this place, The first time I came here was 13 years ago as a backpacker. Then I brought back my hubby and our oldest son before my baby was born 5 years ago.
My son loved it here so much that he wanted to celebrate his 10th birthday here and it just happened to fall a few days before my husband and I celebrated our 13th anniversary.
So we came back with my baby this time.
It's just such a great place. The kids spent half their time in the natural water hole and on the swings that were right in front of our cabin.
We ate lots and even did a horseback tour. There are tons of tours to choose from. But only the horseback that are good for 3 year olds.
Here are some photos of this great place:
Also, I love the honor system and home cooked meals.
