Welcome to La Cocotera

Eco Resort in Central America

La Cocotera is Central America's premier eco lodge and resort. We offer luxurious accommodations in a relaxing setting. We are an eco friendly resort located in beautiful La Barra de Santiago, bordered by the warm Pacific Ocean on one side and a peaceful estuary on the other.

As an environmentally friendly resort in El Salvador, we support the region and local people. We are happy to offer a pristine world-class destination to the environmentally conscious traveler, complete with unspoiled coastlines and surfable waves, all at no expense to the environment or residences. We encourage nature and luxury lovers alike to visit our green hotel in El Salvador for a truly unique vacation experience.

Central America has always attracted visitors in search of untouched natural splendor. At our eco resort in Central America, you can experience once in a lifetime opportunities that will excite even the most seasoned traveler.
