So Many Natural Colors at Finca Argovia

After almost a full day of traveling, I finally landed a small airport at Tapachula, Chiapas, Mexico. Lorena was waiting for me, holding a piece of paper with my name on it. We drove about an hour to this little sanctuary, named Finca Argovia. First two days at Finca Argovia was all about relaxation. I mean, there’s nothing better to do than sit on the porch, drinking a cup of organically grown coffee, listening the bird singing, and watching the afternoon shower. It was a great way to relax my tired self.

We went to a little tour to look around the property. Finca is involved in four businesses: coffee, tourism, produces, and flower arrangement. The peculiarity in Finca Argovia Resort lies in its abundant vegetation and diverse wildlife, where you can enjoy the morning a rich tropical environment and at nightfall, an atmosphere with gentle air currents cool night breezes that make your experience a pleasure. In all installations of Finca Argovia you can enjoy the direct contact with nature, this property has been cared for organically sustainable for more than four generations. I enjoyed seeing these exotic wild plants at Finca. Colors in nature are amazing, don’t you think?

    We were at this resort in May 2012 and the proprietor Bruno is a great person. His staff is superb and they treat everyone like family. We were just there on a cruise ship excursion, so only spent about 5-6 hours with them, but it would be so nice to be able to spend a lot more time there. You would love to spend time there and the flowers and grounds are unbelievable!!!!
