We booked Casa Lobo for a few nights after receiving glowing recommendations from friends.
Prior to arriving in 'San Pedro De La Laguna', we had communique with the owner, where we arranged the payment through Paypal (extremely convenient) and he gave us the details of getting to the place.
I admit, when we took that Tuk Tuk (and I argued with him about the price - Like Lobo told us), the dude dropped us off on the edge of town, and I thought it was payback for the price negotiation.
We took our bags and made our way through a field and several people's backyards - eventually getting to Lobo's place.
We were greeted by the most pleasant person we've met on this trip - Wolfgang.
He showed us to our room, which was actually the whole second story of a villa, with a balcony overlooking the lake.
Amazing view, very big space, a mini kitchen with a fridge, Tv, storage closet and couches - all justify the price which is higher than the hostels in the middle of town.
Oh, and the icing on the cake is the amazing quietness all around you - like you have the whole of nature just for yourself.
We were also shown a faster trail directly to the house.
In the following days we just walked to and from the center of town - 20 mins of walking more or less... we were not bothered by the walk. Well, maybe late at night it was a bit of a problem because of the darkness - but a flashlight was made available with the room.
We also ate breakfast at Wolfgang's 2 times, and I must say it was Amazing.
The breakfast was made by the owner - either from bought ingredients or home grown (he has the most amazing garden full of fruits and more). It was a 5 course meal and my wife had a lemongrass tea - that was made from leaves growing in the garden. Simply divine.
Lobo - We would love to stay again at your place should we come back to San Pedro. It was a great experience.
