It's a bit of a challenge to find contact information for Bambu... but it was well worth it. When we arrived, Nemo had to leave for a couple of days for personal reasons, but he waited for us before leaving and left us in the care of a friend. Nemo was a perfect host before leaving town; a genuinely nice, friendly, relaxed guy. We had to cut our stay short with one night versus what we planned (and reserved) and he was very cool about it. We stayed in the palapa that he normally occupies himself during off-season and it was just fantastic. It's made entirely of bamboo, it has a great balcony overlooking palm trees and the ocean. You go to sleep and wake up with the crash of the ocean (don't expect to hear the 'ocean breeze', the surf has a punch to it here in San Agustinillo) and you experience the wonderful feeling of sleeping outside, in the open air. Location is good too; a bit outside the 'center' (what's in a name), with a convenient store right across the street, and the main beach (where it's safe to swim) only a short walk away. If you're looking for luxury or 'spotless clean', Mambu is probably not the place for you. If you're looking for an authentic experience of sleeping right by the beach, it's paradise.
San Agustinillo is paradise, if you ask me. It's a small, quiet, unhappening place. Everyone's smiling when you drive into town, and it doesn't take long to figure out why. The beach and surroundings are still pretty much unspoiled nature. The perfect antidote for the large beach resort towns... for as long as it lasts. One important point; make sure you bring enough cash, closest ATM is a 40 minutes (one-way) cab ride away... we found out the hard way ;-)
