Capricho Beach House
Located just 3 kms from the cozy fishing village, La Barra de Santiago, in the western part of El Salvador, the beach house "Capricho',
The beach house is situated at the beach front of the peninsula with access to both the estuary with its calm waters as well as the Pacific Ocean, with great waves for surfing. The beach is wide, clean and secluded, a quiet and calm place with few people so you can enjoy the ocean in tranquility, mostly just in the company of local fishermen that fish with nets from the beach.
Barra de Santiago is a protected natural area and has the 3rd biggest mangrove forest (and the best preserved one) in the country. This is an excellent place for bird watching and you can even visit an area where you find wild crocodiles. Many of the birds and mammals found here are endangered species and only found in this area.
To visit the beautiful bocana (tip of the peninsula) it is just a 15 min. walk. You can do boat trips into the nearby mangrove forests accompanied by local guides who will tell you about the diversity of animal and plant life that exists here.
