Located just a block from Taganga's main street/boardwalk, Oso Perezoso is situated in a perfect location, close to all that Taganga has to offer. It is also a quick walk to Playa Grande, a beach reached only by boat or on foot, which is about 15 minutes away (depending on how quickly you walk). I have spent a lot of time at Oso Perezoso, as it is located about 5 hours away from Maracaibo, Venezuela, where I live with my family. Our stays have ranged from 1 week to 3 months. Whenever we leave, we miss Oso Perezoso and can't wait for our next opportunity to return. The hotel is very simple, but it is very clean and looked after diligently by its caretaker and by its and owners. All of the hotel's rooms come with a private bathroom with shower and all have a ceiling fan. There is also a hammock dormitory and sleeping loft in the crow's nest of the hotel (above the rooftop terrace, both of which offer incredible views). There is always a sense of community at the hotel. Most of the visitors that I have met at the hotel have extended their stay or returned to visit again, which I think speaks highly of the place. The hotel has a great deal of charm, but it's crown jewel is the rooftop terrace. With sea and mountains views, and a refreshing breeze, guests spend as much time as they can up on the terrace. It is the common area of the hotel, where meals are served by the cook and drinks are lovingly prepared by the staff. There is always music playing up on the terrace. My favorite spot is on one of the hammocks on the terrace, where I can enjoy the breeze and the view and the comings and goings of other guests. There is always opportunity for good conversation. Oso Perezoso is a small, simple hotel. But it is very clean and very charming. The cafe on the rooftop serves a nice selection of great international foods and offers visitors a relaxing and picturesque place of respite after a long day in the sun or diving. The hotel staff are also very good about helping arrange trekking and diving excursions by reputable guides/companies. The hotel offers a great deal of personal service to visitors, despite its budget price. I highly recommend the Oso Perezoso. I might even see you there sometime...
