As we speak we are about to enjoy our last breakfast at Calvin's, before leaving after a 5-night stay. We loved being here, Calvin is a great host who takes care of his guests in the best way he can and ensures everyone is comfortable, has their questions answered and daytrips planned. He created his own little paradise with Free Spirit Inn and lets you become part of his home in the middle of the community of Bastimentos. It was a great experience to see how the locals live and see what island life is like for them in the middle of the jungle. If there are any activities you would like to plan make sure to ask Calvin about it, he knows everyone in the area (and all locals know him) and has quite some connections to arrange things for you! We had a lot of fun with Calvin, including a nice Christmas dinner with wine and candles. Our stay felt like staying with a friend.
As for the rooms: great beds, beautifull decorations, great seating areas, lots of trees, flowers, birds and a good, healthy breakfast. We stayed 4 nights in the yellow room, we had the pleasure to be the first to spend our last night in Calvin's new 'glamcamp' hut with a bunkbed and separate bathroom with shower. It was great - from inside the hut you can see the trees and plants around, also the shower has a window out. It really feels like camping in nature only with very comfortable beds and and a watertight roof!
