Tío Tom's Guesthouse

Guesthouse in Isla Bastimentos

This rickety wooden guesthouse perched over the sea has been offering cheap, clean and unfussy rooms for years. A highlight is the waterfront deck strewn with hammocks. There are rooms for two or three people and a separate bungalow; all have private bathrooms. The German owner offers pizza in the afternoons. Breakfast with farm eggs and fresh bread is extra.

There's also a dive school onsite with sustainable dive practices.
