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.

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…)

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!
