    *Not a good location for a solo female traveler* (I have done a lot of travel alone - this was bad.) Have to walk through a very sketchy part of town in order to reach city central, including bus stops. Does not feel safe to be out alone at night. Apart from that, really lovely place to stay. Facilities are clean, welcoming, eclectic. Comfy beds, a/c in the night, balcony, common room, big fridge. Not a bug in sight. Francisco has contacts for kayaking, car rental, etc. and is very friendly.
