Located 3 blocks south of the central park and across the street from the water, Nature's Way is a longtime favorite of budget travelers. There's a variety of room, bathroom, and bed configurations, from bunk beds to a mix of twins and matrimonials. Still, everything is quite basic and rustic. Even though most rooms do not have private bathrooms, everything is kept tidy, and the shared bathrooms are large and clean. Only breakfast is served here, though it is hearty and plentiful, and the hotel is close to downtown and other dining options. The guesthouse is operated by an American named William "Chet" Schmidt, who moved down here almost 40 years ago to promote sustainable agricultural and tourism practices.
