  • Great vacation spot

    "My son and I stayed at Rancho Cajun for 11 days recently and had a great time. Dianne is wonderful to work with. She was very quick to reply to questions during the booking process, gave me detailed instructions on how to get to the house when we flew in and stopped by a few times during our visit to make sure everything was ok. Her property is as advertised and the photo's and video she has on the site will give you great insight into what to expect. The waves on the beach, during high tide, are powerful and we had a great time in them. Make sure you ask Dianne about the rip currents and what to watch for if you have younger children. She gave us great advice and we never had a problem. The waves are really strong though, so take care. La Libertad is a smaller town but has some good restaurants and we used their local supermarket on a number of occasions. A bit further down the main road there are a couple of very good places to eat, the view from the patio at Beto's is really good and the food nice with the beer ice cold! Just what you need after a day on the beach. We visited El Tazumal to see the Mayan ruins and also visited the Santa Anna volcano. Both are really worth the drive. Roads in the area are generally good, but watch for potholes. These can quickly ruin your day if you hit them to hard and end up with a flat. Directions are ok, but not all the main routes are well signposted. One of the things that did impress me was the wifi service in the house. It was fast enough to keep my son quiet. Dianne's house keeping team are excellent, they come in early, clean and then leave everything looking great. We asked them to cook a couple of meals for us on the bar-b-que. Salvadorian rice, shrimp, fish, chicken, pork.... all fresh really great. Don't miss this on your stay. They even cleaned everything up after the meal. My family and I have been renting houses in different countries in the region (Costa Rica, Mexico, Puerto Rico etc) for the last few years and Dianne's has been the best place we have had the pleasure to stay in.

  • Beautiful House in GREAT location! Highly Recommended!

    "The house is beautiful, spacious, and very comfortable (fresh air, cool, etc.)! It is located in a safe and convenient location close to malls like MultiPlaza, La Gran Via, and Galerias. Super Selectos and la Despensa are each less than 5 minutes away which makes it super convenient for grocery shopping. The property manager is always available in case you need any assistance and the house is cleaned regularly. I cannot recommend this location enough. I will definitely look at staying here the next time I visit this beautiful country."

  • Paradise Found

    "My husband and I (age 40ish) stayed 8 nights at this romantic casita. It is spectacular in every way and really does exceed every expectation. The house comes complete with all basic cooking utensils and basic kitchenware. I would recommend bringing paper products such as paper towels, plastic wrap, and perhaps refrigerator containers to store left over food (fresh cut up fruit) in the fridge. The house offers 2 bathrooms, one in the casita, one outside for pool access. Bring hand soap for each bathroom. The daily maid service and pool cleaning every other day is a true luxury. There are a few beach front restaurants within walking distance. Roxanna the property manager is very helpful in recommending all sorts of sights to see as well as dining options. She speaks excellent English. You will not be disappointed staying at this property. DÁrcy the property owner is very quick to answer any booking inquiries and is very professional arranging money transfers for payment and refund of damage deposit."

El Salvador Travel Tips

Finding Your Way to El Salvador Vacation Rentals

El Salvador's main airport is the Comalapa International Airport which is located approximately 30 miles southeast of the capital city of San Salvado. The airport is commonly referred to as simply El Salvador International Airport. The airport hosts regular daily flights from international destinations, such as Los Angeles, Mexico City, Miami, San Jose and Guatemala. The flight time from Los Angeles is approximately four to five hours. If your vacation home offers an airport transfer service, it is advisable to make use of this. It may be slightly more expensive than a taxi fare but at least you can be assured that you will have a speedy and hassle-free transfer. There is public transport available in El Salvador but it is not advisable for visitors to use the buses. The taxis in the cities are usually reliable enough.

Travelers to El Salvador Villas

El Salvador is the smallest of the countries in Central America. It is tucked away on the Pacific coast between Guatemala and Honduras. It is one of the lesser-known travel destinations in Central America and the ideal place for those looking for tranquility and privacy. Enjoy miles of pristine beaches easily accessible from your vacation home. The luxurious villas make you feel like royalty enjoying a slice of your own private paradise. If you enjoy long leisurely walks along the beach, surfing or swimming, this is the ideal vacation destination for you. The villas are large enough to accommodate groups of 10 people or more, so invite your friends and enjoy some tropical luxury at a relatively affordable rate. Most visitors to El Salvador are from North, Central and South America with a much smaller percentage from Europe.

Things To Do at El Salvador Beach Houses

El Salvador is becoming known as a prime surfing destination. The miles and miles of beautiful coastline and the consistent swell provide ideal surfing conditions. You can wake up each morning and walk straight onto the beach from your vacation villa. Near the main resort towns, there are designated beaches for surfing and swimming. Flags also indicate the water conditions and if there are rip currents that you need to be aware of. La Libertad is one of the most popular surfing areas.

El Salvador is a leisurely vacation destination. Most people enjoy lazing poolside or on the beach and enjoying the tropical sunshine. If you are looking for some entertainment, you can visit some of the nightspots and enjoy some of the local Latin vibe. In you are interested in the country's history, you can visit some of the war museums which detail the country's turbulent past and provide insight into the culture of Salvadorians.

Best Time of Year to Visit El Salvador

Located in Central America, El Salvador enjoys a warm tropical climate. The coastal areas are hot and humid for most of the year, and the interior highlands are moderately more temperate. Like most other Central American destinations, the rainy season is from May to October. Tropical storms do occasionally blow in from the Pacific Ocean. Travelers should be cautious about traveling during late summer as this is when the storms occur most frequently. From November through April, the trade winds dissipate their humidity over Honduras and arrive in El Salvador as hot dry winds. This often leads to a hazy atmosphere which gives the landscape a mystical feel about it. For most people, this is the preferred time of year to visit and has become the peak tourist season.
