My husband and I got married at Villa Caletas on January 18, 2014, at the Zephyr Palace. This place is breathtaking. Zephyr Palace is off to the side of the property and provided one of the most amazing wedding locations I have ever seen. The hotel can be stingy on the pricing and you need to check your bill carefully,...

My husband and I have traveled a great deal and have been to some beautiful places, but the views, sunsets and surroundings at the Villa Caletas are second to none.
