I stayed in Ayampe for a few months earlier this year, and while I didn't stay at La Buena Vida, I was very much a regular...
There's a wide range of breakfasts available, all of which will set you up nicely for the day. My usual was the Adrenalina - bacon, eggs, toast and big stack of pancakes and syrup. Everything I tried on the menu was excellent and the service was just as top notch.
Keith and Marilyn have created a great spot here, the atmosphere is superb, whether you're having breakfast, or hanging out with a beer, chatting about the day's surf, watching sport (NFL, English Premier League and La Liga all on offer here - just ask), the vibe is excellent. Keith and Marilyn's two kids, Tyler and Gaby are great fun too, pick up some of Tyler's artwork while you can, he's a genius in the making...
I would also recommend a massage from the excellent Andrea, you won't regret it. Don't plan anything strenuous afterwards though, it'll take you a while to re-enter reality!
Good times had and great hospitality, thanks guys.
