When we checked into our hostel, which was basically a man named Hernan's house with some extra rooms, we asked for the key and Hernan looked at us in a funny way and told us that they don't lock anything in this town. "No one has even been robbed and it's just not that kind of place. Our town is built on trust." So, hesitantly at first, we accepted this and unpacked our stuff.
We weren't sure how long we would stay at first but it ended up to be about a week in total. We wandered around the town on the first day and checked out one of the many honey farms, "El Arbol", which was really interesting. In their storefront they had something like a dozen different types of honey available, all of different colour, consistency, and flavour. Did you know that the honey produced depends on the type of plant that's currently in bloom? This place times their harvests so that they can isolate the properties of a given set of plants - neat-o! We got to sample each of the flavours and bought a couple tiny jars to enjoy later.
Have a warm & chilly day,
