The town/city is located right on a beach-front, however if you want to surf you need to walk about 20 mins down the road where there are other hostels, food, and board rentals. If you just want to swim though you can just hop into the water. There is a huge Caribbean influence here. Life is a little slower, people aren't quite as pushy about selling you stuff, and there is usually some reggae blasting from somewhere! This town really has everything that you could need to live, and has made me start to think about other ways, off-line that I could try to make money to stipend my spending down here, but I still want to pursue work online for the future, so that I can be location independent (there's a lot more world out there to see).
There are lots of friendly people here at the hostel, and it's very hard to pull myself away from the social aspects of my journey to write and focus on these kinds of things. But it's always nice to meet people, and people are always the best means to finding work/volunteering and for learning new things. Like I just mentioned a few blogs ago, there are all sorts of people who travel and work, and they are the ones that I need to meet to understand how to do it. Since I'm on the East coast now there aren't any sunsets here, but if I get up early enough to catch a sunrise I will try to add some pictures!
