Comments Village Tan Kah is a peaceful, laid-back property just south of San Miguel. Despite being relatively close to the cruise ship port, itís very quiet, and the cabanas are tucked away from the street. The property is lush with native foliage and the overall vibe of the place feels like a yoga retreat. Any of lifeís stressors that were still lingering, melted away as soon as we set foot on the property.

Our cabana, the Jungle Room, had a comfortable king size bed, plenty of storage and hangers, and a cozy sitting area. It was equipped with a small refrigerator, coffee pot with coffee, a microwave, dishes/utensils, and plenty of purified water.

Breakfast is served every morning, and it is a continental breakfast with yogurt, fruit, cereals, homemade bread, jam varieties, and peanut butter. We purchased a few groceries for our room like eggs, avocados, nuts, and sandwich stuff to supplement our nutritional needs. We cooked the eggs in the microwave and easily made lunch in our room on the days we did afternoon dives. Food options within walking distance exist, however they are limited and just mediocre.
