Photos on their way.

The space

This suite is the ground floor of our beach front cabin. No sea view out the window. It has a double and twin beds in two separate spaces. You will sleep to the sound of the surf and wake up to the chirping of birds. It is perfect for couples or small families (3). The Casa Banana complex where the suite is located has a spacious fenced yard which affords our guests a good degree of privacy. Casa Banana is located in the nicest street in Mompiche.

Guest access

The Casa Banana complex has an equipped communal kitchen with a dining table. A thatched-roof hut has hammocks where you can read or just doze off protected from sun and rain. We rent surfboards at a discount to guests. Casa Banana has access to our 21 hectare conservation area where we conduct guided jungle walks. If you like horses, we can help arrange a horseback tour (guided or unguided) with our friend Fabiola who maintains an animal rescue center. There is free parking space and wifi access.

Interaction with guests

The hosts (Ivan and João) reside within the Casa Banana compound and can answer questions, help arrange for horse back rides, surf board rentals or solve any problems that may arise. Ramon, our local partner is also present during the day and ready to help.

Other things to note

We are committed to conservation and to this effect have established (unofficially) a conservation area. By staying with us you will help conserve a small patch of the Choco Biogeographic region, one of the most diverse ecosystems on earth, habitat to howler monkeys, toucans and a number of endemic bird species. There are beautiful areas near Mompiche such as Jupiter Island, Bolivar, Portete.

Joao and Ivan weren't there, but their friend Ramon took care of us and even led us on a jungle walk. Ramon didn't speak English which made getting directions a little tricky, but he fortunately another guest was able to translate for us. We had a wonderful time in Mompiche and the house was beautiful - right on the beach, a short walk from the center of town. My only complaint was that there was a bar two doors down that played loud music till 3 in the morning.

Response from Joao And Ivan:
Hi Sarah, Thank you for the feedback. Sorry neither Ivan nor I were there but I am glad everything worked out. Yes, the noise issue happens but it is rather infrequent. Were I there that would have been taken care of. The police has been rather helpful. Ramon is part and parcel of the operation -- we are working together to establish a small reserve and your visit will help us -- We will address your recommendations. Thank you --
