Long dirt road to get there sets the tone right away. The locals said don't try to walk it, but it's not that bad to walk there from town. Although, El Cabito has no beach we did lots of hikes on mysterious jungle paths to secluded beaches that appeared to be from a pirate movie. Beautiful views across the open ocean from the bar/restaurant deck far above the waves crashing into the rocks. I would recommend making reservations if you want a table. We saw plenty of unprepared people turned away because it's a small place.
After 4 days we walked back to town where we saw a wonderful contrast in the experience that the other tourists in the Las Galeras area were having in their all inclusive resort stay.
