Nice place, very quite, remote and wild. For those who like rough places... and don't fancy independance.
The place is 1 hour away from the village by the beach, after crossing several rivers. But when the tide is high, you can't cross the river without a boat, so you have to walk 2H30 by the road, often at night... a real punishment.
Otherwise, if you want to stay a little longer, he says you can call him to pick you up... but he will charge you 15$! and let you know about the price only when you will pay the bill!!!!
I am a good walker, but i don't think it's fair to let people think you are less than 1h away from the village, whereas it may easily take up to 2 or 3 hours, at night. Neither is it fair to offer service kindly and indicate the price just when you leave.
