Pursuant to the travel books, this quiet little village all changed in 2001 when AARP picked it as one of the top places in the world to retire. Causing foreign retirees to snatch up mountain plots (taking away the coffee plantations) and slowly changing the face of the town. We saw many places for sale and met some of the ex-pats that have moved, but it do not seem to us a place we would move too.
We went on a coffee tour (click on the video, then click on the arrow) of one of the largest and oldest in the valley "Cafe Ruiz", walked the town and had one of our best dinners of the trip at "Roxanne's".
