cheap, simple huts within walking distance to a beach?

Hoping to find a simple hut somewhere cool on one of the islands (though with basics like a bed, running water, some aesthetic appeal-this is for a cheap honeymoon) and access to food either cooking or eating out within walking distance, and either on a beach or within easy walking distance. We might be staying for two weeks, and are hoping to average about $40-$60 a night for lodging (will likely have around $100 a day for everything, so if it is food etc included the rate could be higher). Open to splurging for a few nights for a nice romantic place and stay cheaper, more rustic huts the rest of the time. We want to be able to swim and relax, kayak around to explore, and walk through some jungle. Any suggestions? Much appreciated!!

1. Re: cheap, simple huts within walking distance to a beach?

Bocas does not have many beach huts on beaches, in fact there is very little accomafations on beaches, and the ones that are, are costly. The other problem is the place with most of the restaurants are in town which does not have any beaches, but lots of places on the water. There is however cabanas estafany which are cheap and in Boca del Drago which is a beautiful beach area on the other side of main island, isla colon. There are two restaurants but you can bring your own food from town.

Tesero is amazing. My dad stayed there when he visited and its beautiful. It's a little way out of town but if you rent a bike you can easydo shopping daily.

Sounds perfect! Are there any other similar places you might suggest under $80 a night? Would prefer a private cabina/hut etc rather than a room, but don't need luxury at all. Thanks for the advice!

Look up the Palmer Tent Lodge on red frog beach. Its secluded but it would be nice.

Look up Boca Del Drago.... Cabanas Estafany
