that is really good to hear! We just had a guest here at El Portón Verde who had no reservations, although she had heard there were some available, but at best the situation was unclear as the La Costeña website is a bit choppy to say the least.

She was figuring on doing the bus/boat thing to get there and then was hoping for a flight back. Well, "Es todo una aventura!"
