We stayed 2 nights here in iguana cabin, a lovely raised cabin with 2 hammovcks on a veranda for a bargain of $16 a night. The lodge is beautiful, with excellent view points especially at sunset, a delicious and reasonable restaurant and very friendly staff. You can do the volcano walk directly from the lodge. Well worth the journey to the other side of the island. Yes, the showers may seem a bit basic and there are compostable toilets but its an eco lodge so what do you expect - its really annoying when people moan about this sort of thing. A really worthwhile experience
