This place is very safe which was a big plus for me seeing as I was travelling alone.

We had planned to be self sufficient but after one breakfast, forgot that idea and just enjoyed the excellence and variety of our hosts' morning presentations.

Have recommended The Armadillo to everyone we know. I suggest booking early as we had trouble booking a year in advance!
