I have stayed here twice in the past 3 years and I'm now planning my third trip back in March. Vida Asana is rustic and so authentic. It's beautiful. Its a short walk to the beach. the rooms are so coloful and comfortable. my shower & ac always worked. there is a sunny pool if walking tothe beach seems like too much effort. Yes there are occasional bugs; did you know this is near a rain forest?? Without spraying chemicals every day it is quite natural in such a warm and open air environment.
For me it's perfect. I don't want to go on a vacation where I feel like I'm inside of a luxury fortress. I like to experience the culture, the food, and the people. With host Alex you will get that. He knows everyone in town and what there is to do every day. Surf competition on the beach? Lets go watch it. Dancing at the backyard, did you know it's ladies night? He'll set up zip-lining, white water rafting, surfing, with the best companies. Then he'll cook for you. And if you're lucky he'll play music while you're dining. And transport to the airport. What more?
