Good place to Stay in Puerto Jimenez, just around the corner from the local bus station and from Colectivo to Carate. The best location. There is also a super market just around the corner. Very clean and they take groups! Also, hammocks. rocking chairs makes it a nice place to hang out!

We had a room with a double and 2 singles and air-conditioning which was a blessing after a week on the Pacific Coast as... More
