Jakes, one of the Island Outpost hotels, is utterly funky, full of hippie chic, worlds away from the formulaic mega resorts on the opposite side of the island. One great thing about Jakes is its affordability: even in high season, you can get a room from $115 for double occupancy. Another great thing is the property's support of the local culture. Monthly Farm Dinners celebrate local sustainable farms and are held in the field of a nearby farm at tables set in white linen and surrounded by lanterns. Plan your stay to coincide with one of the upcoming Farm Dinners (February 19, March 19, April 16, May 14, and June 11) and get a stronger taste of the local culture than you would at most beach hotels.
