Some things to know before you go
I stayed at Namu for 6 days, which was too long. I have some comments on the Lodge, specifically, and the area, generally: If you've already booked, Namu is a lovely place. Compared to most of the others (especially within this price range,) it is the best option. Namuwouki Lodge: - It is a bit tired and could use a deep clean, but is quiet and private - I had 2 pillows, one was basically a bag of lumps and the other was cardboard - The wifi does not work in the rooms, only in the common areas - The staff is lovely and friendly - Very happy it had a pool, you will definitely need to wash off after the day, as it is incredibly humid at all times You will need a car, if you want to do most of the activities advertised. You should rent a bike and go to Manzanillo. The area, itself, is a bit gross. Everything is dirty and dated, there is visible garbage along the side of the road, cabs will harass you if you walk into town and overall it feels unsafe. It's hot and humid, but rarely sunny. The sun, when it is out, sets at 5pm, which makes the day quite short. The lodge is not great for solo travellers (as otherwise advertised,) due to its remote location and inaccessibility. If you are going to travel into town at night take a cab.
