This is a great spot to "detox" from our modern lives. A trip back into another era, when gas lamps and full moons provided romantic evening light, when rain water was collected on rooftops and used for showers (lukewarm at best, but not that we minded) and flushing toilets, and when your next meal was right across the street. And it literally is, as ValleNuevo is a rich agricultural area, and strawberry, potato and onion fields are about one kilometer away. Even getting there is an adventure by itself, taking about one hour from the nearest city, which is prctically on the center of the island. Despite being a tropical island, the setting practically ensures cool nights year-round and starry skies. If you need to "escape", turn off your phone (cell phone coverage is very spotty at its best) and contemplate nature for a while, this is your destination.
