Exquisite Tropical Marina Respit

In short this is one of the best marinas in terms of amenities, ambience and price that we’ve seen in all of Central America!

Nestled deep in the tropical estuary, Marina Barillas provided a sanctuary for our sailboat of weary cruisers. The amenities from the boat side panga taxi to shore to the sparkling azure pools (of which there were three to choose from) were an unexpected treat. We opted to spend nearly a week working on our boat in the tranquil water while treating ourselves to mango smoothies and cooling soaks in the pools. For the less sedentary there’s plenty to fill your days as well. We delighted in visiting the spider monkeys, soaking in the natural pools in the sand bar island and were amazed at the phenomenal work of the endangered hawksbill turtle sanctuary. These ingenious conservationists pay local fisherman to locate turtle nests. By purchasing the turtle eggs for conservation they’re helping the endangered hawksbill while compensating the fisherman so they continue their livelihood. Instead of selling the eggs to the market they sell them to consecration!
Highly recommended destination for any boat in El Salvador.

All this beauty in one place…

I can’t believe I was in Puerto Barillas…nine months ago at TMLA you were telling me about the amazing place and activities and now I have been here. The landscape is awesome and although we were forced to a short stay, we managed to enjoy so much!! So thank you very much! My kid loved the turtles and the monkeys and the pool as well!! I loved everything, seeing him so happy and looking around in awe for all this beauty in one place, altogether!

Casa de arbol en Puerto Barillas

We stayed here only one night but wished it could have been more. What a setting – the whole area is magical. We were lucky enough to stay in one of the ‘tree houses’ – you felt like you were in the middle of a jungle – so quiet except for the birds in the morning – a welcome sound. We took the boat tour and the views were amazing – saw some birds but it was the middle of the afternoon so not as many as one would see in the morning or early evening,.  (más…)
