“Wanna get away?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2008

We stayed at Carlito's Sunrise Paradise for 5 days. It was a perfect location. It was a 15 minute walk into the village. We chose our bugalow with a private bathroom for $25 a night. There is the option for shared baths for $10 a night. Our bungalow was right on the beach. When the tide came in, we were only 5 feet away from the water.

When we arrived on the panga, Carlito arranged for someone to meet us with a wheelbarrow and wheeled our packs through the jungle out to his place. The bugalows are simple, but very clean. The mattress was new and firm. Mosquito nets, pillows, and sheets are provided for you. Towels are not. There is electricity from about 5:30 pm until about 4:00 am. Running water runs from about 2:30pm until about 6:00 am. There is also an electrical outlet which most other bungalows at other places do not have; a great option for those who need to charge their tech equipment. There are locks on the doors; we felt safe and secure the entire time. The ocean breeze keeps this side of the island perfect; the heat is almost not noticeable here. Nowhere else on the island did we find the breeze like we had on this side of the island. Carlito will also arrange to have someone carry your stuff back to the panga when you leave if you give him advance notice.

You can get basic snacks, drinks and meals here although the walk into the village doesn't take long either. There are many mango trees around and are free for the taking. We understood that there was snorkeling equipment for rent there and fishing trips organized there, but we didn't take advantage of either. There are hammocks and chairs all over his property to relax and at the other two places nearby: Grace's and Elsa's. Every morning, Carlito's staff cleans up the beach from everything washed up in the tide (organic materials and trash) at his property.

We found that although the accomodations were simple, it had exactly what we needed. We will stay here again when we return to Little Corn Island.
