About the Property

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 14)

Everything you need in a vacation awaits you at this beach front home. From the beautiful sand of Playa Dorada to the private pool with swim-up bar, all your needs are catered to. Whether you are a couple ready for quiet time or a large family looking for your next reunion spot, the home can accommodate you. We are located at approximately KM 91 one mile off the coastal Highway CA-2. This is in the County (Departamento) of Sonsonate. See our website for additional house details, pictures and area attractions.

SEA TURTLE FARM AT PLAYA DORADA - Our beach is one of the most active sea turtle beaches in all of El Salvador. There is a new turtle farm on the beach. Our care takers can bring you to the farm and you can help bring the turtles to the sea at sunset. An amazing experience.

MEAL PREPARATION - Ana Rosa is one of the on-site care takers. For a small fee she will prepare meals upon request. Some of her specialties include ceviche, fish, shrimp, lobster and chicken served along with rice, beans and fresh tortillas. Ana gets the ingredients directly from the local fisherman and farmers which keeps the meal costs very reasonable, for much less than you would pay in a local restaurant and quite possibly less than you would pay preparing these meals yourself.

SURFING - Roll out of bed, grab your board, walk past the pool and catch a wave before breakfast. It’s that close. It's that convenient. If you want to explore a different scene, head out to Playa Mizata, a 5-minute drive away, or Playa El Zonte 40 minutes to the East. Both places have right-point breaks and sets that according to the locals line up “machine-like, with so much open wave face, it is like a skate park.” Water temperature is between 80°F and 85°F year-round. Winds are offshore and light in the mornings, and turn into light-to-moderate sea breeze (5-15 knots) by midday. Many of the breaks are well protected and surfable all day, because of the headlands and points.
We can arrange surf tours and surf boards rental.

DAY TRIPS - One of our favorite day trips is into the mountains to visit the hill towns of Apaneca, Ataco, and Juayua. The drive takes approximately 1 hour to reach the first of these towns. The trip takes you along the popular Ruta de las Flores (Route of the Flowers). Once here, you can stroll the cobblestone streets to visit local artisan galleries and old churches, hike to waterfalls or have lunch overlooking coffee plantations and volcanoes, or take a canopy tour. We can recommend guides for hike and tours.

SNORKELING, DIVING & FISHING - Playa Los Cobanos is located 1/2 hour from the house. El Salvador's best diving is found here. You will see a major coral formation. It's not a reef, but thousands of rocky heads covered in coral. Two shipwrecks are found at about 35 feet. Go at low tide for outstanding snorkeling. You can also find diving tour operators and deep water fishing guides operating out of this beach town.

TRANSPORTATION-We can arrange transportation - airport pick up, car rental, van with driver for large groups.

Why the Owner Chose Sonsonate, El Salvador:
On our first trip to El Salvador we fell in love with this tiny Central American country. The warmth of the people, the stunning landscape, the endless beaches and the warm Pacific waters made us on making the decision to purchase Casa Tortuga (The Sea Turtle House).
