We had an amazing time staying with Bob and Keishya in their guest house. The beach within walking distance was nearly deserted and is adjacent to a peaceful nature reserve. The accomodations were generous - a large kitchen and living room just for guests, a pool and patio available at any time. And several wonderful well-behaved dogs (great for us, since leaving our dogs at home is the hardest thing about travelling.)
There were many wonderful things about staying here, but here are a few of my personal favorites.
*During our four night stay here, I'm not sure we saw any other tourists until we drove 20 minutes or so up the road for an excursion. That is a really unique - and I think priceless - aspect of staying in Humacao.
*Keishya was invaluable in terms of her advice. She drew us maps, gave us directions, and recommended places to eat - and all her recommendations were wonderful! She always seemed genuinely concerned with our enjoyment.
*Bob guided us on two kayak excursions - bioluminsecent bay and "Monkey Island." The prices were very reasonable and he's just a really fun person to hang out with. We were so glad we didn't go through a larger adventure company.
We felt genuinely sad when we moved on from Barefoot. While the rest of our trip was great, the time we stayed in Barefoot was the most relaxing and memorable. I would highly recommend it.
