Offering the culture and charm of Mexico, this is an affordable alternative for independent travelers who don't want all the hoopla of a highly developed, all-inclusive-style resort. The no-frills cabañas are bright, clean, and airy, and you can fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves. Swedish Owner, Osa, offers a beautiful spread of homemade Swedish pancakes with mango chutney and fresh juice for less than $5. She is a great source of local information. The emphasis
at El Delfin Blanco is on natural beauty, which is abundant, and the sweet community of people, travelers, and residents who congregate here. It's a short stroll to La Playita beach, which seldom has more than a few fishermen on it. Despite claims by other guidebooks and online reviews, tents and RVs are not allowed on the premises.
