After several years living on site Paulette has taken a small step back and now lives with her daughter on the Mariposa Finca, or farm, where a lot of vegetables are grown organically to feed the visitors.
On Saturday we enjoyed breakfast in the garden with Paulette and then had a tour of the farm.
The sustainable methods used result in a wealth of beneficial insects, butterflies and birds. It’s a great place for birdwatching!
Tomorrow we’re flying to the Caribbean coast for some exploration. We’ll report back soon.
