At first glance, the Parrot Nest Lodge seems like a lowly summer camp; spaced out, rickety rooms in a very communal setting. However, the people here make the place special. From the beginning, the hosts made sure that we were comfortable. Dinner was excellent and reasonable, and the rooms, though rustic, were fine. The bathroom is outside the rooms in the back. A few things of note: the Parrot Nest is located a long way from civlization, which is either a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you look at it. If you stay here, it does not make sense to go into town for dinner; you must eat at the lodge (which is worthwhile anyway). Further, there is no public transport near the lodge and cabs are very expensive, so unless you have your own car you need to make arrangements with the hosts to get into town. The clientèle is very young (and friendly). Also, the price is bar-none for the San Ignacio Area. Don't judge a book by its cover- for a night (or a few), the Parrot's Nest is worthwhile.
