Dining at Villa Encanto

Bienvenidos to Villa Encanto!

Our Staff is eager to make your vacation a memorable one, one that you will remember long after you have returned home. An integral part of the stay will of course be your meals. 

Included in your rate is the preparation of two “family-style” meals daily. In order to give you an idea of the types of meals our guests often enjoy, we’ve prepared some sample menus for you to explore. It is by no means exhaustive so if you would like something else, ask and if it is at all, possible, the staff will gladly help.

  • Vegetables and fruit are seasonal, and always freshly picked.
  • You can be assured that all the water and ice are purified and the vegetables and fruits have been rinsed in an anti-bacterial solution and purified water.
  • If you have any special dietary requirements or preferences, please be sure to tell the chef in advance.
  • Mexico has diet drinks so please be specific when asking for them to be purchased on your behalf.
  • If you would like a third meal added to your stay, there is a $10 per person charge. Please pay our chef directly.

Before your stay, Esther our manager will reach out to get a shopping list for you and your guests. This will allow time to shop and prepare the meals. You will be expected to reimburse the staff for groceries at the end of each week. Esther will prepare the necessary receipts for your payment.

Issac (the chef) learned on the very first day that I don't drink alcohol, so prepared a delicious limeade for me daily during "happy hour" without me even asking.

traditional mexican food

Her cooking is out of this world! From the Mexican fiesta, to the homemade tamales, to the ceviche and Huevos Rancheros.

Traditional Hand squeezed limes make the best margaritas in the world. The guacamole and dips are the best I’ve ever had!
