Fodor's Review

A very unique installation on such an arid island, L'aldea is in a small rain-forest reserve, replete with lizards, animals, fish, and birds that you would find typically in lusher climes. But what is most impressive here is the hand-crafted design of absolutely everything including faux Mayan and other ancient culture recreations, caves and tropical atmospheres by local craftsmen (some of whom are the owners) using wood and cement to recreate a "lost world" in the middle of nowhere. They have also recently added a few small rooms as eco-accomodation stays there. The easiest way to visit is to take a tour that includes a facility visit and then staying for their Latin American-themed dinner. The fare is incredible—largest salad bar on the island—plus a carnivore's heaven with grilled meats served Argentinian grill-style until you burst. Live music also adds to the full-on experience. For day-trippers though, it would be great if they served some kind of lunch.
