My trip was amazing! I would highly recommend Susan Parsley and Quinta Bonita. Everything about my trip was well planned and orchestrated. The yoga classes were great and the accomodations, staff and meals at Quinta Bonita were excellent.

By far this was my favorite location so far. The accommodations were exactly as described, a boutique hotel with so many little extras. Whatever we needed our hosts were able to accomodate and I will for sure return with another group if I can! Beach, Yoga, Spa, amazing food and excursions.. and Shopping!

I could not be more please with how accommodating the staff was. I am gluten and dairy sensitive and I am unable to have any spicy foods I was worried about my meals having both or not being able to have enough to eat while on the trip which is what usually tends to happen when I travel, but the staff not only went out of their way to provide me with plenty of food they also always doubled checked with me about everything making me feel involved in the decision making when it came to what I eat. They also had an adorable cat named Molly who was such a wonderful addition on the trip, she is very lovable and she made me not miss home as much and always put a smile on my face. Everything was wonderful and beautiful and I will be recommending this hotel to everyone I meet.
