The unfortunate part of our stay was that it only lasted 2 days. The weather was beautiful, the hosts were gracious and fun and the food was quite good. Both my wife and I love seafood which put us right at home. We went snorkeling twice in some excellent places, visited a cemetery and went to the island town of Playon Chico twice. The island is crowded but the people were nice and the kids were fun to talk and joke with.
The living quarters at Sapibenega were clean and reasonably spacious. There was electricity and running water, even hot water. A few times the water was off but not for long. You need realize that you are on an island where electricity come via a generator and solar cells and water via a pipe from the mainland. But where else can you see ghost crabs, many fish, a moray eel, beautiful sunsets, look at the absolutely gorgeous Caribbean and eat fish that a couple of hours ago were in that sea and then relax in a hammock and listen to the breaking waves.
Go and enjoy youself.
