Eat[edit]

There are two comedors in town, one on each side of the old airstrip. Don't expect anything of a food nature but beans and eggs unless you bring it yourself, and you will not be disappointed.

Drink[edit]

Thanks to solar energy, there are cold beers at the comedors and at some tiendas in town.

Sleep[edit]

The comedor nearest the Cooperativa has two basic dorm rooms with four double beds each right behind it.
