  • Accommodation


    We offer a spacious, simple and modest place, with hammocks, mattresses, blankets, where we have received more than 10 people and the view of the Caribbean Sea and our islands is enchanting. We have rooms for those who want to share it. We have bathroom and shower room. The water is not flowing, we have an underground tank and we supply with tobos (bucket) for the cleaning of the dishes, the areas and the personal cleaning. We can not offer the food, but the idea is to share and cook together. We always have many travelers of different nationalities and we do cow (collaboration) to buy food, so everything goes much cheaper. In addition, Venezuela is a country where food is very cheap, so you can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner very rich for less than $ 4 per day. We have a large kitchen with vajilllas available, we have a clay oven and a place to make roasts. We always eat very rich and varied. The idea is to discover the culture of each person and try dishes from each country. In addition, we can teach you to cook typical Venezuelan dishes.

    Ofrecemos un lugar amplio, sencillo y modesto, con hamacas, colchones, cobijas, en donde hemos recibido a más de 10 personas y la vista al mar Caribe y nuestras islas es encantadora. Disponemos de habitaciones para quienes quieren compartirla. Contamos con baño y cuarto de ducha. El agua no es corriente, tenemos un tanque subterráneo y nos abastecemos con tobos (balde) para la limpieza de los platos, las áreas y el aseo (limpieza) personal. No podemos ofrecer la comida, pero la idea es compartir y cocinar juntos. Siempre tenemos muchos viajeros de nacionalidades distintas y hacemos vaca (colaboración) para comprar alimentos, así todo sale mucho más barato. Además, Venezuela es un país en donde la comida esta muy barata, entonces puedes comer desayuno, almuerzo y cena muy ricos por menos de 4 dólares por día. Tenemos una cocina amplia con vajilllas a la disposición, tenemos un horno de barro y un lugar para hacer asados. Siempre comemos muy rico y variado. La idea es descrubir la cultura de cada persona y probar platos de cada país. Además, podemos enseñar a cocinar platos típicos venezolanos.
