Other things to note
Casa Comunal is a minimalist island home, located where the jungle meets the sea. While the home is very stylish, we recommend our guests be prepared for a rustic holiday. It is a combination of architectural simplicity and a glamping-type experience.
If you require a high-end luxury hotel-type experience, we suggest you book a different accommodation.
Also, regarding swimming at our beach in front of the house:
The sea out front of the house has a shallow reef. We only recommend swimming here on very flat days which are most common in the late summer months. During the rest of the year, there may be waves, which make the reef dangerous for swimmers. We do not recommend swimming here at any time of year with young children. However, there is a beach just 10 minutes walk down the road with a sandy bottom for an easy swim in a sheltered bay that is perfectly calm every day of the year.
