Blue Zone Retreat

Guesthouse in Playas Pochote & Tambor
Image by Hostelworld

The location seems odd – stuck on a side road with no beach in sight – but the attentive owners and art-filled premises make it an excellent lower-cost option. A yoga deck and hammocks strung up around the property (including in a treehouse) are part of an emphasis on wellness, and the eight simple rooms feature pretty wall murals.

Air-con and hot water are available on request. The beach is actually only 400m away, you just can't see it.
