Hacienda Merida

The danger of staying in a place that houses you, feeds you and has stunning views from the bank of hammocks is that you may never leave. It’s all very easy and holiday-like at Hacienda Merida, where the bell rings for organic buffet dinner every night at seven and there’s not much to do other than sit around and order the odd meal from the best kitchen we’ve eaten from in ages. In this environment, the littlest decision becomes a major dilemma. The question of leaving the hammock to grab a book, or go swimming in the lake takes up half an hour of sun-stunted thinking time, weighing up other options such as ‘maybe I will just stay here’ or ‘perhaps I may go swimming later’. It’s tough, really tough.
