My wife and I were very happy with our studio apt. and ended up extending our stay. The studio was clean and had everything we wanted/needed for an extended vacation. Part of the joy we experienced, happened because this apt. is located in a neighborhood, not the “hotel zone”. Many people in the area had dogs and chickens, so until we got used to it, we woke in the morning to roosters crowing Most evenings we enjoyed listening and watching the neighborhood kids playing outside after school and weekends. Also had two churches across the street, so we witnessed many festivals and assorted activities. Fresh fruit and veggies, as well as a fresh meat market were just a block away. Juan, our host, was excellent. He told us about the area, from markets and dining choices, to the nightly migration of blackbirds from the mangroves to the downtown ADO. (we don’t know why they migrate!). Can’t wait to get back there, see you next year Juan!
