My friends from Punta de Mita, Jeff and Abdon, who happen to own Cafe Como No, took me for a spin outside Bucerias one afternoon, and they remembered having stopped at Los Arroyos Verdes in the past, so they thought it would be a good destination and a treat for me to see. Well, it was.
Unfortunate for us we arrived in late October and found Los Arroyos Verdes closed; but we did get an invitation at gate to come in anyway, so we did.
We all know how we see first impressions, right? It is that first impression that either is inviting or suspect. Well, I'm here to tell you that my first impression was. Shall I just be succinct about it? Okay, how's "Wow?" Good enough?
We were escorted throughout the grounds and I was awe struck at the serenity I felt. As I walked around manicured lawns, and experienced the visual tastes, such as the array of palms and other trees, florals; even a baby Iguana that seemed to be painted in lime green, neon. As I paused in front of the restaurant, looking out to the pool beyond, I closed my eyes and imagined how it might be filled with guests, an evening with soft lights and music. Can I say it again? Wow.
The bungalows are well designed and furnished, with the piece de resistance among them all, an Airstream hide-away, tucked quietly toward the back and off the beaten track; or even the bungalows across the foot bridge. Truly a spectacular, reserved enclave where one can kick off their shoes, sit back and let the world go by.
Los Arroyos Verdes is a writer's haven, a honeymoon delight; or just a place to call home for a little while. An oasis indeed, a little piece of heaven tucked away and out of sight; and for the guests, out of mind. Next time I go, I will make reservations, when the open sign is well lit.
