  • Day trip: Punta Uva

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Would have chosen a different hostel for our stay.

  • How was the food?

    The bakery. Serves pretty big and really tasty breakfast.

  • Packing tips?

    Mosquito repellent, sunscreen, rainjacket/poncho.

  • Transportation Tips?

    Bike is nice but car/moped will probably open up more doors and you are more flexible.


  • El faro 13. The staff was nice but everything else was pretty bad. Really filthy rooms that smelled like sewage drains, the bedsheets were really dirty as well. We didn't want to spend any time in our rooms. Kitchen was really filthy as well .
