A Hidden Gem in El Salvador, Central America

My husband and I stayed at Port Barillas and enjoyed very much! Is a beautiful place in the middle of nature and birds singing. It has an amazing view, the establishment is clean with pristine pools, is a place to relax and forget the stresses of life. My husband is an avid fisherman so he enjoyed 3 days of fishing. We got an excellent service from the Personnel Office as well from the restaurant. The food is excellent. I liked so much I wanted to stay longer. As I said is a hidden gem in El Salvador.

Awesome adventure in your own paradise

The hotel is located in Usulutan ,where the surroundings are well managed. The lodge itself is big enough for a family of 4-6 people, complete with kitchen facilities. I felt like I was at home in a paradise like setting. There were many activities to do so plan to stay at least 2 or more nights. You can feel that the staff are happy because they make you feel happy. Elena, ( manager) was very warm and welcoming. Staying in Puerto Barillas Marina and lodge is a good base to explore the Jiquilisco Bay. I had a memorable experience of participating in releasing the baby sea turtles back into the ocean and later had the chance to see how an adult turtle is captured by biologists and witnessed how their conservation studies are conducted. When you are there, take the monkey tour. You will walk through a forest until you reach their home. When you call their names, they come down the tress and interact with you ( be sure to bring lots of bananas/plantains). If you stay longer, you can also take the Cacao tour and Banana plantation tour. It is an excellent hotel with so much awesome experiences and adventures to bring home. Would love to go back again — this time longer.
