1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Watching my daughter see the stars for the first time! Zero light pollution! Also, I was so surprised by how much there was to do on the island. Nice to wake up each day and know it was going to be sunny and dry! The retreats provided an atmosphere that really felt like a community. Lots to do for the kids, social interactions but also plenty of privacy. The honesty shop made things convenient for grabbing essentials.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

I would NOT recommend the boat trip to La Graciosa. The trip is a bit pricey but includes a guide and 3 course lunch. The island was so small a guide was not necessary and lunch was inedible. The restaurant the tour usually patrons was closed. Our guide went to their second choice which was awful, 3rd course was actually a cup of coffee or cappuccino! No discount was offered as a result of this experience. Truly disappointing. I would recommend visiting the island but perhaps book on your own.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, we had a fresh veg box delivered from a local farmer upon our arrival. The accommodations were green but very luxe. You can see that tourism on this island is essential for its survival.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

I thought the vacation was fantastic, however it is a VERY windy island which if staying in the yurt, takes a bit of time to get used to the timbers creaking. That being said, our accommodations were outstanding, and the highlight of our trip. It was not necessary to go anywhere but plenty of outings if we wanted. Things through the office seem to happen in their time which if you are trying to plan your days can be a bit frustrating.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

We really enjoyed the boat trip to Isle Graciosa the operator organised it. We went on a RIB speed boat to get there, then went snorkelling, walking through the town and a beautiful lunch. It was a really lovely trip and our 2 year old loved it!! We even saw a flying fish!!!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

A car rental is needed to really explore the island and there is so much to explore. Rent a Prius from the operator - they drive really well, get great mileage and are automatic!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes the Finca is off the grid so the environmental impact is minimal.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent, brilliant, vacation of a lifetime. We were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary and it was better than our honeymoon!!
