We planned to stay two weeks and ended Up staying three. Great athmosphere at the Shop. The Party Hotspot "tranquila bar" is right next to parrots which makes getting Home drunk easy. Also they are the cheapest Shop for doing diving courses.

My wife and I stayed at their free accommodation which was barely habitable. It was dirty, beyond rustic, loud at night, and crude in every way. We were kept up quite late by partying nearby and learned that the dive staff were the ones that...More
