This place is a bohemian buffet for the senses in a sunny, palm-treed paradise (never mind about those hurricanes!)

This little-bit-of-everything retreat is located in Lantana, Florida.

As you enter Casa De Mañana loosely translated as “house of tomorrow”, meaning everything around here runs on Island Time, a warm feeling slowly overcomes your body and you realize you don’t have a care in the world.
