About 3km south of the dock, this simple solar- and generator-powered retreat, steps from the beach and surrounded by 36 hectares of jungle, is an authentic rainforest hideaway. Run by the charming (and bilingual) Jason and Juliana, it has rustic but comfortable facilities including eight screened-in upstairs rooms (some with dorm beds), a shared open-air kitchen and shared bathrooms.
Guests can lounge in hammocks on the large porch and gaze at the fruit plants or spot sloths and monkeys in the trees. Jason can arrange activities from hiking, horseback riding and fishing to coconut tours (in which you'll learn about growing, collecting methods and uses). To get there, walk around 40 minutes from the village, arrange for a truck ride from town (around US$10 one way) or arrive by private boat (US$20 from Caño Blanco); reservations recommended. Barbecue meals that include traditional Caribbean fare can be arranged.
