We stayed two nights. It is an option for accommodation that is not expensive (but no electricity and rain water for showers, which after all is part of the adventure). The setting is nice, parrots etc..
But everything else is really far! We did not want to pay a fortune for a shipment that is not even in the reserve. After which the host gave us the scope of friendship: fire and beer on the beach, he accompanied us in our walks (though we had specified "if you want"!)
In the end, he even charged us that we're bathed in the river and all other prices were inflated!
And that we shared our food, our drinks and cigarettes!
