Staying outside the main area so as to stay on a nicer stretch of beach and more cheaply. Like most of the accommodation here it’s bungalow shacks, by the beach, some more luxurious than others. Tonight mine is surprisingly cool because of the rain and the multiple fans installed, but I imagine this is not always the case. The mosquitos are bad here, I’ve already been bitten multiple times eating dinner (WHICH DID NOT INVOLVE RICE thank goodness!) as well as by some strange large wasp type bug that literally flew into me as if it had no sense of direction and was gone in an instant, but enough time to produce a nasty bite, so I’m über thankful for this mosquito net despite having to tie knots where there were a few holes (serves me right for paying $4 a night for a bed).
