10. What is the difference between the Cabaña and the Maloka?

The cabaña was built almost 40 years ago. It sits on a cliff in a place of unusual beauty with the ocean and the river at its feet. There are three rooms which are open to the ocean and share two airy bathrooms. The suite ( at a different rate) has a private bathroom and balcony. The Cabaña rather resembles a sail boat. It is austere although it lacks nothing.

The Maloka was recently build in 2013. It is located near Cabaña, on a hill overlooking the river, the ocean and the jungle. Rooms are spacious, with a queen size bed and private bathroom. Its interior design was conceived to transmit comfort and tranquility. Cabaña is not recommended for children, people with disabilities, and pregnant ladies.

No we don’t.
