We decided to visit Barra de Santiago for the turtle release, and wished we had done so at Tortuga Verde in eastern El Salvador instead. The dorms were horrible value at $10 per person. Here are the issues we had with the property: -the lock...More

For those who like somewhat out of the way places, Capricho is great. The room was very clean, even the windows sparkled. Meals were basic, served timely, and the dining settings were charming. The location near the end of the point made it easy to...More

Perfect place in idilic location off the beaten track. Huge beach with no-one around. This area is a protected nature reserve so you can see turtles on the beach (not always!) and can take a trip by boat to the mangroves - very peaceful and...More

About
Description
Capricho Beach House is a small hotel situated at the beach front of the peninsula Barra de Santiago. This cozy and relaxed place is made in ecological style with palm thatched roofs, rustic motifs, wooden beams ...More and the four rooms share a cool corridor overlooking the beach. The spectacular natural surroundings frame this property with the long stretched sandy beach in front and the still waters of the estuary (lagoon) at the back side. The area is dotted with coconut palms and is frequented by different birds such as humming birds visiting the flowers in the garden. The rooms all have A/C and private bath. There is a lounge area for sun bathing, small palm thatched ranchos at the beach front, a living room and restaurant area. Our hotel offer a restaurant service from 6am to 9pm but if you want to visit other places, the village (3kms away) and the Bocana (1 kms away) are other options for meals.This is the perfect place for nature lovers as the location is conducive to enjoy the amazing wildlife in this protected natural area. Tours into the mangroves to observe birds, reptiles, crocodiles, mammals and the local fishing community´s way of life tops the list along with surf activities, observing the great ocean turtles and other ecological conservation programs. Services available are : board rental, surf classes, boat trips into the estuary or mangroves, fishing trips, night walks to observe turtle lay eggs on the beach and turtle baby release tours. Transport services to International Airport, San Salvador, Ruta de Las Flores, El Imposible and Los Cobanos are available. . Barra de Santiago village is just 3 kms away and is the home of fishermen and their families and a couple of small stores and diners. Common denominator of the area is that it’s very healthy environment where you can feel safe walking around also after dark. To visit the beautiful bocana (tip of the peninsula) it is just a 15 min. walk from Capricho. From here you can observe on clear days the impressive volcanic mountain chain all the way from Cerrro Verde volcanic complex to the Volcanoes of Pacaya, Agua and Fuego of Guatemala. Beyond the mangroves you also spot the green slopes of the El Imposible National Park. Less
