As an eco resort, one of the activities we encourage guests to try is kayaking. Our unique location allows guests to go ocean kayaking, or to take a kayak out and explore the variety of wildlife in the estuary.
Paddle along the coastline and discover beautiful sights and deserted beaches. If you prefer a more mellow adventure, kayak through the mangroves lining the eco resort and marvel at the majestic volcanic peaks that serve as the backdrop to the resort.
If you want to make a day trip, visit Lake Coatepeque, a beautiful crater-shaped lake located at the foot of the Santa Ana volcano. At 26 km wide and 120 meters deep, it is one of the region’s largest lakes and is particularly scenic with green slopes rising up 250 to 500 meters on all sides. The island in the center, called Teopan, is said to have been used as a spiritual retreat for ancient Mayan leaders.
Kayak use is included with your stay at La Cocotera Resort. Just ask and we’ll be happy to help you arrange your trip!
