The playa Don Juan, just south of Pedernales, is still a somewhat hidden place on the map and deserves to be mentioned here for many reasons. Samvara Eco-Lodge is certainly the place to be in the area. It surprises you with a lodging concept focused on community development and sustainability. The Swiss owners are making sure that this is not being lost in the transition.
Samvara Eco-Lodge offers a pool, bar and relaxing area within the premises, but the beach is within 50m and can easily be accessed through the back gate. The meals are European influenced and a great change to the standard rice, plantain and salad dishes in the rest of the country. Well, thought of and greatly executed dishes are guaranteed.
The town has an extremely laid-back vibe to it and you won’t feel the rush of wherever you came from before. Just relax, sit back and let the heat be your friend.
Come and enjoy the tranquillity of Samvara Eco-Lodge and let yourself guide into a paradise of birds, plants and silence.
