Butterfly has the best combination of a lakeside lodge vibe and a volunteer center, as is the goal. Community projects are extremely well thought out and implemented well thanks to so many committed volunteers but moreso because of Josie and AJ, the owners. So many opportunities to get involved if you're flexible and the tiniest bit resourceful. Dorms are clean and nice, never tried the hot shower but hear its awesome, compost toilets are a great idea, and dinner is always hot and good (although you can find cheaper no western food in the area that's just as good). Come here if you care more about who you meet and what you learn/give back than the thread count of your sheets. Views from the restaurant and beach are also amazing, and the bar is a great place to meet many of the local beach boys.
