Getting here on the dirt roads from the Pan American Highway was quite a bumpy adventure but once you're here you'll really appreciate how much it isolates you from the rest of the world. Popoyo beach is a big attraction to people who really want to get away, either to relax or surf it seems. This area isn't where you come for 5-star accommodations. You come here to experience a care-free, easy-going, almost roughing-it, in-the-middle-of-nowhere life experience. We stopped and looked at 4 other hostels along Popoyo beach and settled on Popoyo Beach Hostel because it seemed like it had the most to offer. The 2nd floor room w/ a private balcony wasn't available but 2 friends an I shared a 4-bed dorm room to ourselves for extremely cheap. I got my best rest on the comfy hammocks located on the back porch. This is also where you'll find that the Wi-Fi signal is available. Coolest part was we saw a wild sloth in the tree back here. Bathrooms have the essentials but don't expect too much and you'll be delighted.We enjoyed a decent breakfast here and a nice jog on the length of the beach. If you were with a larger group, I could imagine this place being an amazing party place.
