For an additional fee, we will welcome you at the bus station or airport in Puerto Plata with transportation to our place. We offer free guidance and an orientation on site. The Munoz River runs through our property and offers a natural place to swim. Many guests walk to the beach or walk to converse with local people in the friendly village. We have been here for 17 years and our guests are very welcome! We have a bar restaurant by the river where all the guests gather to exchange stories about their daily experience, give tips to others, or plan an excursion or outing to the local disco! Your vacation can be a retreat or an adventure; your choice! We are here to assist you the best we can to make your stay enjoyable in our rustic set up in nature! We offer Spanish and dancing lessons and also excursions at discounted prices; direct with local people, such as horseback riding for 20 US dollars.
