Cabinas El Leon is a short walk to the beach, where you often see howler monkeys, iguanas and a variety of birds. We have rooms with two beds or three beds and each have a private bathroom, shower and hot water.

Outside your cabina there is an area, rancho-style, in which you can relax, read a book, or watch television. We have a Direct TV-satellite connection with all the channels of the world. You can watch any of the sports, movies, sit-coms and more, in the language of your choice.

Our delicious, home-style meals are also served in the rancho. In the morning you can enjoy a tastey, energetic breakfast to start your day. Later that evening, Rosanna enjoys to carefully prepare for you, a selection of amazing dishes of authentic ITALIAN CUISINE .
