My stay with Terry and Cheryl last week in the palapa was both comfortable and safe. As a solo traveler I tend to stick to places that are close to town so I don't walk too far alone. This place is near town and Terry and Cheryl have great recommendations to go with it. Every beach and restaurant recommendation was wonderful. Cheryl and I have birthdays close together which landed while I was there and we shares some birthday Don Julio shots. She also walked their dog Diega and I out to the quiet beach nearby. The bed was a lot more comfortable than I'm used to in Mexico. Once you get the hang of the water in the shower it's lovely as well. It was a very hot week while I was there (even the locals were saying it's unusually hot). Buena Onda is an Eco friendly, solar run casa so that means no AC. The ceiling fan was a bit too high up to benefit from it but they provided me a floor fan which made everything very comfortable. I really enjoyed my stay there and plan to return when I'm ready for another beach vacation.
