La Tortuga Verde El Cuco Reviews


La Tortuga Verde ,“Where Turtles Come To Swim Free,” (rated #1 on Tripadvisor and rated #1 for places to stay in El Salvador by Lonely Planet!) is a beachfront hostel / hotel, restaurant, turtle sanctuary, yoga center, pelican retreat, fruit tree & coconut plantation, bar, located in the fishing village near world class Las Flores surf break. Boat trips, hiking, relaxing and eating great fresh food!

Our rooms are clean, inexpensive and life is great here on the most beautiful beach in El Sal!

All of the rooms, efficiencies, and houses have been built with large floor to ceiling screened-in patios made of all natural materials. In this way the sound of the ocean constantly whispers throughout the property and into every sleeping accommodation.

La Tortuga Verde is a place where people come for a day and stay for a month. We are a hostel, fun and relaxing beach front big property with turtle sanctuary hatching over 10,000 eggs a year.

La Tortuga Verde is located right on the Ocean just down the road from Playa El Cuco / Playa Las Flores and just down the hill from Intipuca on thr borderline of San Miguel and La Union.
