Parking scrunchy. You get what you pay for. Cash only. Other: Bring cash! Very few establishments (hotel or restaurant) accept credit cards, even if they have a... More

I spent two nights at Cabinas Arrecife in Cahuita. It is located off the main drag but you only have to walk 5 minutes to the strip of restaurants, bars and shopping. I liked being away from the traffic because it was quieter. My two friends and I shared a room with a full bed and two twins beds. My... More

I stayed in this hotel for three nights in August 2010 and I can recommend it to other travellers without any hesitation. It is, however, a budget choice. Rooms are pretty basic but have either AC or ceiling fans. There is a small pool, but please do take notice of the word small. The location is great, right by the... More

We saw this place listed in Frommers and just happened to stumble upon it at the far corner of town. From the outside it's not much, but once you get in the gate, it's like a little paradise which feels very secure. The rooms were nice, clean and adequate, with chairs under a covered veranda. There is also a covered... More
