We rocked into Playa Carmen and Santa Teresa and went to where we were supposed to be saying. It was a hole. After a long drive, we were very low. In the off chance, we walked past this place and checked if there was a room. We got a bungalow with three beds in it. A double and two singles. Air con. Nice bathroom. Kitchen with all that you need and more. Oh and you're 100 metres from the Pacific and a spectacular beach. Not enough? We had a pool, a hammock, close to everything.
Then there's the owner, Richard. A yank. What a guy. We caught Yellow Fin Tuna during the day and by night he leant us his own BBQ to cook it on. We shared a beer too. He knows the area and will advise of how to respect the place. He looks out for you and your enjoyment.
We were supposed to stay a night, we stayed 3 and didnt want to leave but pulled ourselves away to see more of Costa Rica. I will be back though.
Price? I'd pay 5 times what it cost and it would still be good value.
Oh and this is English Matt from the two Matts, Mike and Mitchell. There just before Christmas.
