Pick up the fishing poles and head to the lake to catch dinner, then settle down with a book from the collection at this environmentally-conscious getaway. Reclaimed wooden furniture and organic bedding sit alongside custom art and unique antiques. Drink and wash with filtered water from every tap and relax knowing that an emergency generator will provide power in the event of any blackout. A visit also comes with a donation to plant 10 mangroves for offsetting one's travel emissions through the nonprofit SeaTrees. To date 180 trees have been planted in 2020.

It offers fishing and water activities from April to October. Here one is always close to Nature and the outdoors.

I am a travel, sports and lifestyle photographer with a background in landscape architecture and urban planning. I grew up in Southern California and enjoy active sports like running, hiking, and standup paddleboarding. I also enjoy the arts, music, theater, literature, cinema and good food and wine. I've traveled to over 36 countries so far and all seven continents. I particularly like to travel in Latin America and speak Spanish. My favorite travel destinations have been Spain, Peru, Bhutan, Cuba, Italy, Mexico and Argentina. Five things I can't live without are my family, friends, camera, suitcase and passport. I like classic literature and historical thriller novels. I'm a big Lord of the Rings fan as well as love big epic films like Braveheart and Gladiator. I love all types of music, especially Latin rock. My favorite foods are Italian, Japanese and Mexican. As a guest I am courteous, respectful and sociable. I am responsible and not a party animal and prefer staying in places that are cozy and quiet. I generally like to stay in economical places with my own private room and bath. Most of the time I am not even in my room as I'm out photographing early in the morning and even evenings. My life motto is definitely carpe diem--seize the day. I travel as often as I can to see the world as I never know how much time I'll be given. I saw my father pass away when he was only 57 from cancer and he had so much still to live and places he wanted to go. Now I travel for work mostly but do take time to enjoy my experiences as well.
