          About 500 meters, there is a walking path right across the street thru trees Sometimes you will find monkeys or macaws flying over.

          How reliable is the wife there? Is the pubic area loud? Can one be able to have a decent phone conversation in public are or will there just be too much jungle noise in the background? Is there a safe in the room or a way to have my personal belongings (s.a passport) kept with someone in front desk while I am out and about? Thanks
