I loved being at Martina's place. She is very helpful in organizing trips and showing you the wildlife that is right outside her space. She only had room in a tent the first 2 nights for me which was great since there is a wonderful queen size bed with a good mattress in it, it even has a night light next to the bed so I could read and a fan, but it was a bit noisy at 3:30am since all the workers drive their motorbikes to work. The last night I stayed in the back bedroom with 2 bunk beds and it s was nice and quiet for only $15 a night. The tent was $20. So for what you pay it is a great place. All the other places are expensive but have views of the ocean and even more flowers around.
Martina's place is next to the main road and does not have great views, but she has a nice garden and free Coffee and tea in the morning.
I loved going to the Park and taking the tour Martina recommended. Also the snorkeling on Cano Island was great, lots of colorful fish, just not much coral. The sight was pretty good that day.
