Tortuga Village

Low-key, family-run resort of delightful circular cottages on stilts surrounding an inviting pool, all beside one of the country's finest beaches.

The low-key, family-run Tortuga Village sits in blissful isolation on one of El Salvador's most beautiful beaches. Accommodation is in eight delightful circular cottages on stilts, each hovering above a private open-air area replete with hammocks and chairs. Above, sheltered by a palm-thatched roof, the wood-lined bedrooms almost have the feel of treehouses and are simply but stylishly decorated with white furnishings.

The cottages surround a lovely pool, dotted with little islands of palm trees and a row of sunken sun loungers for relaxing in the cool of the water. There's a well regarded seafood restaurant attached too. The beach is just steps away and is an important site for turtle nesting and hatching in season –the hotel runs a conservation project as part of its commitment to protecting the still unspoilt natural environment.

What our clients say

  • I felt that our visit helped local people and economies, especially in El Salvador. I tried to buy local and go to local cafes wherever possible and was encouraged and given time to do so. 

    PC, London
  • The highlight was the friendliness and openness of the people in El Salvador and being in a country not overrun by tourists.

    SB, Cambourne
  • It was all fascinating and was a trip of so many contrasts. If I had to pick out two experiences that have stayed most strongly in my memory - for completely contrasting reasons - they would be Tikal (Guatemala) and El Mozote.

    DM, Nottingham
  • A highlight was watching the sunrise at Casa del Mar and my family loving surfing.

    JMM, London
