This location has been labeled by its creator as Public, and therefore can be viewed by anyone.
Although most of the buildings are new, built on the old foundations, it remains true to the original finca style and also has preserved the president's large temascal, an indigenous sweat lodge that is still in use.

It sits amid 80 fragrant acres of coffee plants and citrus fruits of various kinds. It abuts a huge, spectacular valley where two clear-running rivers, the Nautla and the Filobobus, meet. The views from various hilltop locations are superb. There are also two relatively unknown and unexcavated archeological sites.
