This is an excellent place for bird watchers with toucans & parrots nesting in the extensive gardens. Lots of other good birding close by. Ask Manuel for directions to playel del Rey, the lane is good for all kingfishers of the area, herons inc boat billed, we had indigo bunting and indigo grosbeak, scissor tailed flycatcher, galinules just to mention a few, the road is a bit rough but easily passable with SUV type vehicle.
Very relaxing around the pool and in the gardens
