La Cocotera Resort and Eco Lodge
By Mary Jo Plouf
La Cocotera Resort and Edo Lodge in San Salvadore is one of Central America’s premier eco lodges. They offer luxurious accommodations in a relaxing setting between the Pacific Ocean and a peaceful estatuary bordered by tropical mangrove forests on the other side.
The lodge, small and exclusive is located in the beautiful Salvadorian village of Barra de Santiago. It is located only about two hours from San Salvadore, but it is a world away from the bustling city. Without a little inside information and a short trip on roads you might never discover, it is well worth the trip. Once there, you are in for a unique vacation experience.
If you are looking for an eco- lodge far from the crowded beaches, but still directly on the ocean, this is the perfect escape. You can take a swim in the sparkling ocean, rest in a hammock in the shade of countless coconut palms, swim in the pool, or gaze at the spectacular volcanic peaks in the background.
