La Palapa is a fantastic place to stay for anyone looking to take it easy and soak up the atmosphere of lovely gardens, close to the rain forest and good beaches.
Christina and Manuel are very good hosts, and are in the process of making La Palapa a first class eco resort, having re-opened last year after seeing the potential and buying the place. As with any work in progress, there is still more to be done, but this is more than adequately reflected in the pricing. Our basic room did not have air-con or tv, but was clean and comfortable - and lets face it, there is no point coming somewhere like this and sitting in your room!
The pool area is quite and intimate, with many possibilities for spotting an amazing array of birds and other wild life. The home cooked evening meals are delightful, though a wider selection of beer, wine and spirits would have made things even better :-)
