The beauty and tranquility of Equilibrio has impressed many people so far.

Update Fall 2015: 68 reviews and still not a single negative thing to be said! The lowest rating they have is a very good! It seems the owner James and Gabriela work hard to keep their guest very happy and make you comfortable. Almost every review raves about how awesome this couple is! Accommodations are clean, dietary restrictions are no problem, yoga instructor is fantastic and very knowledgeable,
