There are some other true budget conscious options ($30-$50/nt) such as rooms in people's homes and small "hotel" style rooms next to some businesses. They are extremely rustic and not for those wishing to enjoy beachfront locations or breezes. They have no websites but Alex can inquire with the owners of such if this sort of accommodation interests you.
