Pavones is littered with cheap, friendly beach cabinas â€“ a great place for budget travelers and wave chasers. The more high-end places tend to lie outside the center of town along the road to Punta Banco. Hotel La Perla is probably the most comfortable option in the center, though if you are willing to pay a little extra, Villas Riviera provides comfort and seclusion just a short distance from the main plaza. Cabinas La Ponderosa is another mid-range option, located between Pavones and Punta Banco, that offers seclusion, good group facilities (such as a game room with a TV and DVD player), a range of activities, and all-inclusive packages in addition to standard daily and weekly rates (www.cabinaslaponderosa.com). For total exclusivity and immersion in nature, nearby Tiskita Lodge provides the ultimate experience.
