From the homemade chocolates and wildflower bouquets that appear in the rooms each evening to the sweeping backyard complete with swing sets for the kids, there are many thoughtful details in this converted ranch. The property is nestled in a quiet tree-lined valley by a stream yet lies just six blocks from the main street. A full schedule of mountain biking, horseback riding, and four-wheel-drive expeditions is on offer in the 42,000-acre Estancia 25 de Mayo that lies just behind the hotel. Hotel Kau-Yatun is closed in winter, but its sister hotel, the much larger Mirador del Lago, is open year-round.
