We got off in Montañita and stayed the night there at Hostal Las Palmeras. It was $15 per person per night, we probably could have found something cheaper but this hotel was away from the party sounds of the street and right by the water. I think we were the only people staying at the hotel. It was the beginning of the off season but the weather was great and the waters were still warm.
Montañita reminded me a little of the Jersey Shore, so we only stayed the one night. We did happen to find a nice little indian/asian fusion food joint with vegetarian food. It was called Sakura and manned by young English speakers. I don’t know if they owned it but if they did they are living the dream.
