We really enjoyed our stay with Margit and Len. Normally we're sleeping in our tent but Len & Margit offered us their beautiful Cabana. The temperatures been so humid and hot that we're really happy about the AC in the cabana. We spent the hottest nights since the start of our travels in Panama without breaking sweat..
The apartment has a beautiful seaview, a kitchen and a bathroom. The only negative point was that the mattress of the double bed wasn't really comfortable. We paid 600 pesos for the apartment.

Amazing place! Len and Margot are incredible hosts, they've really made this spot is a little piece of paradise with a super little pool, awesome clean showers and a truly welcoming atmosphere. When we arrived, they took us to a great restaurant down the road and we spent the evening chilling in the pool and chatting. It was lovely getting to know them and quite sad to leave.

We've been on the road for 4 months and this place truly stands out. They charged us 300pesos for two of us in camper to park up with electricity and everything included. If you fancy spoiling yourselves, shell out 900 for the casita with ocean views. Delightful

I agree to all the previous post! The stay with Len an Margit was just perfect! This couple takes care of you and love overlanders! They showed us some nice restaurant and the pool is just amazing! Len has also some mechanic skills which might be helpful. Overall great experience! There should be more host like this out there! Thank you so much!

Len and Margit are fantastic hosts
I would second what others have said and I would add that if you have tiny dogs it is not a good spot. We were able to make the gate somewhat dog proof
But it is right on a road that people go crazy fast on

They helped us back our 19 ft trailer out this morning
Only inches to spare but it worked out!

Thanks so much Len and Margit! We had planned to stop here for a night or two, stayed three. Would have stayed longer if we weren’t on a bit of a schedule. Wonderful spot, great hosts that we would now consider friends. Fun mountain biking through the mango orchards. Aticama is a great, little town. Thanks again Len and Margit for opening your beautiful home. We hope to meet again in the future!

We can't say enough good things about this place! We arrived after taking the TMC ferry from La Paz to Mazatlan. Intended to stay for 1 night, but stayed for 3. Len and Marget are incredible hosts and we felt so at home and relaxed in their gorgeous place. Slept wonderfully each night to the sounds of the waves, thoroughly enjoyed their outdoor kitchen/bar & pool, walked to see birds behind the place, strolled along the beach, and they were gracious enough to take us to a great little restaurant (Casa Manana) one night, and into San Blas for some shopping and exploring on a Saturday morning. My husband spent time cleaning up our rig and Len was super helpful. These two are gems and we would stay with them again without a doubt and highly recommend!

these 2 gracious human beings really knocked it out of the park! what a pleasure it was for us to hang out for 5 days over Christmas weekend. they showed us around San Blas and organized an awesome birding tour for us. the laguna mentioned before is an irrigation pond but it attracts so many birds that we would stay for hours. the walk is about 1 mile and goes through the jack fruit and mango trees. definitely worth it. hot shower, fast wifi, warm pool and great conversations! these two are seasoned travelers and have some fun stories. I had an issue with a sticking caliper and Len lent me a few tools to get it figured out and a battery charger to charge up our battery. I haven't come across any hosts that would do that! Aticama has some of the best oysters I have ever tried and is within walking distance (maybe a mile away). there isn't much room in the driveway for your rigs but it doesn't really matter since you spend all of the time outside on the grass or on the patio. the dish washing station and outdoor eating area is also very convenient. the tides can come up pretty high and often make the beach unwalkable but it's a treat when it's clear, once or twice a day. we will be coming back this way on our travels back north!

Great welcoming hosts. Very relaxing place to stay. We planned on 3-4 nights but ended up staying 10 nights. As said before very clean bathroom with a hot shower. A place to do your dishes and different spots to sit and enjoy the view!
Good beach walking when it is low tide, other times the waves splash up against the sea wall, which was for us an attraction. Across the road you can walk to a lagoon with lots of birds.
They can give you lots of information about the area as well.
Easy walk to Aticama for restaurants or shopping.

Definitely a great place to stay! We will be back on our way north.

I stayed at their home for 4 days and I loved it:)
The sunsets are amazing and they took me to a restaurant with the best guacemole in town (it was really good).
The outdoor bathroom was very clean and the spot is very secure. I can highly recommend staying with them:)

Such lovely hosts and such a lovely property! Perfect for our truck camper. There is now an outdoor sink and a patio and table to do some work on. Incredible sunsets and some delicious food nearby.

I stayed here 4 nights and had only planned to stay one. I wouldn’t have been able to back into Len and Margets driveway on my own I don’t think but Len didnt hesitate to back it down their narrow driveway for me. I got here at sunset and the view was perfect. They have power and water to hook up too and also a really nice clean bathroom to use with a super hot shower. The property is gated so it’s super secure. They showed me around Aticama and Santa Cruz which are both cute towns with good food and some fun little surf waves if there is south swell. I mostly surfed right in front of their house, there was some fun little waves to mess around on while I was there. The highlight for me though was hiking to Cora falls about a 40 minute drive from their house. Definitely worth a visit and it’s free! Len and Margets place is 200p a night, well worth it for the location, amenities, and vibes!

Lovely people overlanders sharing their beautiful home.
Tis such a sweet couple who have built a place of sanctuary for us travelers.
The roar and power of the ocean, and peace of the forest across the street. Be sure to walk to the small pond to watch the Magnificent Frigates take a bath. This is the perfect base camp for birding. Ask them about the night boat ride and the amazing Potoo.

e highly recommend Len and Margit's perfect little location. We drove our van through the security gate into the backyard on level gravel area overlooking the ocean. They have everything you need for your stay: a super clean bathroom with shower; a covered patio with ceiling fan to enjoy coffee or reading; and the best part is the pool overlooking the ocean with a perfect sunset right in front of you. We had a great time with these guys!

Perfect location, we only stayed one night after getting off the ferry in Mazatlan from La Paz on our way south. Perfect hosts, everything very clean and tidy!

Perfect location with access to the beach. Excellent facilities. Magitte and Len were so helpful, showing us around San Blas too. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Good place for a night or 2. Very friendly and helpfull couple! You sleep in the garden of a recently renovated house. Brand new private hot shower, toilet, swimming pool! Electricity provided if you want and mechanical advice (especially for VW). You sleep really next to the ocean and can hear the waves singing loud lullaby s. Great stop!

Great location. A private house and garden backing onto the ocean with super chilled vibe. Margit and Len have done a cracking job of renovating thier home and offer lovely clean and new everything! They were even having a lawn laid whilst we were there. As hosts, they are a lovely couple and will keep you up all night chatting (if you want) and have a tremendous local knowledge. They even hooked us up with a mechanic in PV when we broke down there. Because the high tide comes right up to thier sea wall it's a delightful sound and not constantly available to walk on which adds the the calm.
