The facilities in Hostal El Imposible Ecolodge are simple but clean, with hot water and netting over the windows to keep the nighttime bugs at bay.  There is a large solar array which charges batteries that keep the power flowing all night, and the shower water flows from a solar-heated tank on the roof of each cabin.

The Ecolodge also features Restaurante Ixcanal, serving a large menu of mostly local dishes.  They also sell juice, beer, water, and sodas, along with a small selection of locally -produced honey and coffee.  The staff can get you started on your hikes inside the park,  along with helping you figure out how to catch a ride back to civilization.

Laguna Verde Guest House in Apaneca, El Salvador

Laguna Verde Guest House

Laguna Verde Guest House is located in a quiet and rural setting up the road from Apaneca, El Salvador.  It’s on he Ruta de las Flores which is one of the biggest tourist attractions in El Salvador and is packed full of rolling green hills, delicious coffee, and beautiful flowers.  Apaneca is a tiny town with lots of charm and some pretty good nearby hiking.

Laguna Verde Guest House has two buildings.  One is a a dome with two rooms with bunk beds, a common space with chairs and a fully functional kitchenette.  The second house is a wood cabin with several rooms of different styles on separate floors.  The cabin is also equipped with a kitchen and refrigerator.

The views from the flower-filled yard are spectacular when the clouds clear up and there are some great photo opportunities.  Unfortunately for us, it was kind of cloudy while we were up there so we didn’t get any amazing pictures.

Laguna Verde Guest House

The place is very comfortable and the owner is glad to help you out with whatever you need.  The only drawback to this place is that it is about 3.5km from Apaneca town, up the hill near Laguna Verde.  It is a hard hike uphill with a big backpack but there are infrequent minibuses and anyone with a pickup is glad to give you a free lift.  For someone looking for lodging in a great coffee farming “off-the-beaten-track” location, this place might be a perfect fit.

Address: Up the road toward Laguna Verde.  There is a small village before you get to the lake and you will find the guest house there.

Phone: 2102-8575 or 7859-2865

Prices: 

$14-35 for a double room, depending on which room

Horizonte Surf Resort and Restaurant in El Zonte, El Salvador

Horizonte Surf Resort and Restaurant, on the shore of one of the best surf spots in El Salvador, is a friendly and relaxed place to spend your time on the Playa El Zonte.  Less than 20km from La Libertad, El Zonte is a small village with a lot of potential to one day be full of major resorts.  But for now it’s still that much more enjoyable tiny town full of thatched-roofed houses and a couple beach beer-drinking hangouts.

The highlights of Horizonte Surf Resort are the large kidney pool, a parrot and an iguana to provide Animal Planet-esque entertainment, and their fantastic restaurant located right on the beach.  Watch the waves as you are served an appetizing selection of local and international dishes.  The huge, great-value portions are sometimes hard to finish.  While there, I enjoyed a red snapper that was served whole, fat, and maybe 14 inches in length.  They also offer sushi on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday nights.  The staff provide great service and are always smiling and happy.  They really make you feel at home.
