It is walking distance to several surf breaks and very open so the sounds of the rain forest abound. We did a day hike... More

Superb location, clean and very comfy! We went on a day surfing trip, got amazing waves. The wildlife around the bungalow was really astonishing! The managers are super helpful and are also the cooks. Make sure to try their food and specially, the COFFEE.
