Backpacker places in Central America
A cool little Caribbean town on an island. The first thing that you will see when arriving by boat to the island are the beautiful stilt mansions at the waterfront. This Caribbean architecture (large patios) mixed with island minimalism (hardly any windows) is also seen throughout the town, though modern development is slowly gaining ground. Besides the sweet Carribean vibe, the town somewhat lacks action, but if you can manage to pull yourself out the hammock you can explore the surroundings. Snorkel, cruise the mangrove, visit neighbouring islands or find a deserted beach... or do all of the above on a full-day boat trip.
