TravelPod Member ReviewsHostal Papaya Montanita
Apart from its location I have no complaints with Papaya. The double rooms are MORE than adequate and the private bathrooms have hot, high-pressure water mains. Beds have mosquito nets, there are desks, shelves and a floor fan for all your needs. At 8 to 10 dollars a night it's a bit exxy but you won't find anything all-inclusive (breakfast, hot water, wifi, etc) for cheaper around town. The one downfall is that the music on Montanita's streets is always on full volume until about 3 in the morning, even on a Monday, so take earplugs or be prepared to pay a little more for somewhere quieter down the beach.

... on bad terms. Unfortunately, that evening, me trying to be friendly with Dave (the only one I didn't argue with!) went down like a led balloon. Understandable I guess, so left it alone, and put the whole situation down to a "blip" in my travels.
The deaths and arguments were the only downers in my whole trip, so was pretty glad to leave a couple days later for tranquility in Guayaquil and the next step of my journey...the Galápagos ...
... me, that is the area on my chest close to my arm pits. I guess I forgot sunscreen there and it is a bit pink. We did this the prerequisite 30 minutes before exposure and any time we had the opportunity to stand or sit in the shade we did. We reapplied as soon as we got out of the water - and still both Morganne and I are a bit burned this morning. Even a few minutes in the sun without sunscreen will cause a burn. An hour or so WITH sunscreen ...
