It's one of Mexico's best kept secrets that funny enough you can't stop spreading once you've experienced it. Hop a flight to Manzanillo, slide behind the wheel of a car and head 2 hours due north (or, hire a private air charter if you're so inclined, and land at the airstrip nearby).....when you reach the volcano, you've arrived at the epitome of Mexican chic. We're talking 500 pristine manicured acres surrounded by thousands of acres of ranches, coffee plantations, and framed by a surprisingly peaceful yet active volcanic mountain. 25 luxurious spacious suites, individually y themed, with incredibly high ceilings, antique furnishings, abundant traditional Mexican craftwork, and each with its own beautiful story behind it.

It's akin to your own private hacienda, with living rooms to retire in, the freshest of organic and locally-grown foods prepared any way you prefer and served anywhere you wish, gorgeous pool, tennis, and even horseback riding nearby- though most of its visitors tend to air towards the idle side of life for a few days. Not surprising- with service, atmosphere, and a location as outstanding as this, you'll go from 100 mph to siesta 24/7 in no time. Doesn't that just sound fantastico?
