Fodor's Review

Eight newly remodeled cabins sit on stilts near the banks of the lagoon. Doña Elma, matriarch of the tourism-pioneering Bodden family, runs the lodge with her daughter Melissa. Upon request, they can cook up tasty and bountiful breakfasts and dinners served in the downstairs dining area, or call to arrange transportation and tours. Spacious rooms, built from wood planks and thatched palm roofs, each have a double and single bed (mosquito netting included), plus access

to a wraparound porch facing the water. Candles and purified water are also provided. Communal bathrooms adjoining the lodge have cold-water showers, flushing toilets, and sinks with mirrors; these are perhaps the most modern accommodations in the area. A generator provides electricity only to the kitchen and family house, so bring a flashlight for after sunset.
