After a very, VERY bumpy ride  (23 km to be precise) down the mouth of the dry Rio de los  Flamingos, you arrive at  Flamingo Lodge!

Situated on the beach, against low cliffs, the view of these little bungalows was just amazing and frightening at the same time. Nine little bungalows in the middle of nowhere with nothing, absolutely nothing around, just sand, sea and more sand! No mobile network, no internet and no electricity, apart from a generator than runs during certain hours, it was pretty hard on the girls at first.  On the other hand we had kilometres and kilometres of beautiful pristine beach just for us! It was really magic!

For those wondering how you can survive without internet and all these electronic gadgets, well let me tell you that it is possible. You walk, you swim, you fish, you read, you crochet, you play games, you build sand castles, you rest and more importantly you DISCONNECT!
