3. Charming waterfront apartment (from USD 92)

Mere steps away from the white beaches of El Cuyo is this little apartment hosted by Javier. The spacious terrace facing the sea is perfect for lounging in the morning and waiting for the rays to hit the pristine waters of this beautiful fisherman’s village. The living space accommodates up to four guests and comes with modest furnishings and a kitchenette. Do note that the town itself is fairly remote, and while there is internet access, it’s only suitable for sending and receiving messages. Really, though, why would anyone need to be knee-deep in the World Wide Web with paradise just a stone’s throw away?
