Hacienda Jacana is a hidden lovely jewel of 4 wooden cottages, each with a balcony overlooking a small pond. Just beyond the pond was some seasoning peppers in cultivation so the yellows greens and reds were a lovely sight. Helen and her husband are stellar at offering great service. The welcome banana bread came in handy for breakfast and you...

Hacienda Jacana is set in beautiful surroundings. Each of it's four cozy and well appointed cabins overlook a pond surrounded with marsh type vegetation, interspersed by tall trees, all of which attract a rich and diverse bird life, along with a variety of other interesting representatives of the natural world. The atmosphere is peaceful and serene; it's a great place...

Beautiful place, impeccable service, delicious homemade food, peaceful, clean and comfortable! This place is secluded in the most beautiful natural setting. I loved doing yoga on my balcony, view of the pepper garden across the water, hummingbirds flying around in the day and bats at night!! Listening to the rain, crickets, frogs and who knows what else is out there...

We stayed here for 5 wonderful nights as a group of 13, which basically meant taking up the whole place ! A lot of thought and effort has gone into creating this place, with everything a person wanting to see some Caribbean nature could wish for. Cottages are arranged as 2 bedrooms, the only downside of the place being shared...
