Carlito’s Homestay is the only place to spend a night in Anartuto (local known as Makadade). Enjoy a comfortable bed, simple home-prepared food, snacks, and experience Ataúro’s noncoastal community’s life, hiking, and trekking up to the peak of Manukoko mountain (999m) for sunrise and beautiful views of the island and the village. Make sure to check also the wood carvings, woven baskets, and other local products prepared by NGO Roy Ia Rod (RIR) at the back of Carlito’s house. During the second week of July, you can explore the island’s annual Betel Nut Festival (the only Betel Nut Festival in Timor-Leste) held on the slopes of Abakteri, above Anartutu.
