          I am a little older than the average guest but everyone here, staff and guests, have made this place feel like a second home. I will definitely be back. Great jumping off point for the North coast adventures.

          Enjoy the Drop Bear! They will most definitely take care of your bags as we left our stuff there for 5 days when we went to hike to La Ciudad Perdida. It is a great place, tell Regina that her favorite gringo says hello.
