Although they sound like bunk beds the amount of room between is more like a two-story A-frame house. Restrooms and showers are in another building. Unless you happen to come with others, you will have the hut to yourself as I did. Two friends occupied the other hut.
The grounds are like having your own private yard in the country. A large grassy lawn complete with hammocks stretched between the cashew trees, a wild white bunny, domestic cat, chickens and roosters surround you. The plantain, bananas, and mango trees on the perimeter will be just part of your morning breakfast.
In the middle of the yard is huge oven used to make pizzas and homemade bread. Meals are eaten under a huge palapa with long tables and several chairs. Wolfgang served up various combinations of mango juice, banana bread, pancakes, and scrambled eggs for breakfast. Dinners included spaghetti, German potato pancakes (my favorite), pizza and others. Meals were a mere $2 each paid at the end of my stay.
Steps lead down to the beach and the dock where the skiff is tied up that takes you out to the treasurehunter boat. You are welcome to sleep aboard the boat if you wish. The boat has about 20 tanks and can be filled on board with all necessary equipment stored there as well. No need for lugging anything. The boat also has a freshwater hose to clean off and a large cooler to soak your gear.
Although you are very catered to here, you can’t help but wanting to give a helping hand. You can’t help but leaving here knowing you have made friends and that you will return.
