First of all, the manager meets you in town and drives you out to the casita. Upon arrival it's a bit of a walk to Casita Azul, which is a decent sized studio. What you can't see in the photos are the ants in the bathroom, the stained and molding couch (which made me wonder about the bed), the heat (no a/c and no trade winds that day) and the shower. Shower, did you say shower? By the way, where is it? Yes, outside, down two flights of stairs and open to the elements under the house. No, an outdoor shower is one thing, but one that requires a hike to get to, while being chased by mosquitos, is a whole other type of experience which I do not want to pay for on vacation. At $175 it is really over priced, at $100 it might begin to seem more reasonable. They let us cancel our reservation and luckily I found another hotel room back at Casa Amistad (which I really enjoyed staying at).
