Casa Bonita is no more!

Not a very frequented hotel by foreigners, but the Casa Bonita boutique hotel had a fire a couple of nights ago that consumed about 90% of the hotel. This was one of the nicest hotel in the entire South region.

Here are video clips of the fire and aftermath.

About a year ago William Ramos did a tour of Casa Bonita.

All those videos are in Spanish, but doesn't need to know Spanish to see the images.

PS. Hmm, I noticed that lately William Ramos show something and a few months later puff. Earlier in the summer he did one showing some of the attractions of Haiti, then the President was killed and now the gangs are worst than ever. He did this one of Casa Bonita and a year later the place goes up in smoke. Let's hope this isn't the start of a trend.

We stayed there a few years ago with Matilda/Lindsay de Feliz and her husband for 3-4 days. Absolutely lovely, great spa, good food. I was sad to read this yesterday.
