This is a great place run by a great birder in a fine location. I have stayed here early in the inception and added many life birds as well as great cultural experiences thanks to Georgia Conti. I heartily recommend a stay here. The nearby area around Lake Patzcuaro is a treasure trove of craft makers from the hand-made guitars of Paracho to the copper products of Santa Clara del Cobre. There is just an awful lot to see and experience here and no one I would rather do that with than Georgia.
