El Cabito was first built in 2006 by German-Dutch couple Catrin and John, and first comprised two cabins, the camp site and the restaurant; the hammock hut and tree house came later on.
Surrounded by banana plantations, there isn't much in the surroundings but sun, sea and peace, which suits the guests who seek out this place, right down to a T. Lounging in the restaurant/bar/living area, all days long, looking out to the sea a dreamy look in their eyes, their daily troubles far away - yes, the guests who stay here certainly look happy with themselves for having chosen such an off-the-beaten track place to stay. And it's not hard to see why one would spend their day in this rustic yet very charming area of the hotel. Especially as it has a diving platform for the thrill-seekers among the guests to jump off the cliff side into the crystal clear waters below (there is a ladder to climb back up) - a perfect way to cool down in an instant.
In season from January to March, it is possible to spot whales from the wooden deck and if you're lucky you might even be able to spot a few turtles. Activities while staying here include climbing, exploring the area on boat tours, hiking and horse riding as well as diving and snorkelling. If you don't come by car, the owners can arrange a pick-up, depending on your schedule (to be specified before arrival for a specific activity).
