My husband i spent several nights with Calvin at his uniquely designed inn. We met Calvin on a bus ride to Almirante and were thrilled to have found such a peaceful, lovely place to stay with such interesting and attentive host. Free Spirit Inn has two upper floors rooms, painted in gentle colours, with lofts and roomy, beautifully decorated bed and bath and immaculately clean. Calvin has spared nothing to makes these places super comfortable and uniquely his own. Calvin spent time with us answering all our questions about the island, tours and places to explore - and we set up a terrific snorkeling tour with Uwe - a passionate protector of the local marine areas. He was so knowledgeable and educated us as well as ensuring we experienced several snorkeling locations with different sea life. Continental Breakfast was great - you could custom order hot items for a small fee. We walked across the island to Wizard Beach - a wild, wave expanse of golden sand - well worth the walk but make sure you have good shoes to avoid the ants!
I highly recommend this amazing place to enjoy a unique and special island, away from the tourist hub of Boca town. We truly enjoyed spending time with Calvin - an intriguing and fascinating soul.
