El tiempo definitivamente ha pasado

Había visitado la finca hace unos años y me encantó. Ahora me encontré con habitaciones nuevas tipo hotel moderno EN EXCESO, pero con pésima señal de WI-FI y en contraste con las lindas haciendas cafeteras, muy desocupadas y simplonas... una desilusión, pues viajé con un extranjero a quien quería mostrar la zona. Para tener los servicios básicos de la habitación, debí buscar al personal activamente, pues no lo hacen espontáneamente. El beneficiadero y los cultivos ya no están para mostrar, están acabados y abandonados... vuelve la época del banano. La finca se ve abandonada, si siguen así, pronto no tendrán nada para mostrar. Es una lástima, pero no la recomendaré de nuevo, no volveré allí : (

    Viaggio nel passato

    Struttura storica immersa nel verde di una piantagione di platani e caffè. Un’autentica finca cafetera di inizio ‘900. Va segnalato che per muoversi dalla struttura bisogna sempre chiamare un taxi (o avere un’auto privata). Una passaggiata con Don Julian. proprietario della finca e della piantagione, vale da solo il soggiorno.
