Description

The Space

Private room in house steps away from the beach on the Pacific coast of Guatemala near El Salvador. Located on a major turtle nesting beach with opportunities to patrol nightly with experienced guide and/or work at sea turtle hatchery project. Private bathroom, shared kitchen, near shops, amenities.

Guest Access

Access to beach, roads, public and private transportation, shops.

Interaction with Guests

Depends on if I'm around. If not, a caretaker will attend to their needs.

The Neighborhood

Peaceful nature and being right between the ocean and the canal.

Getting Around

Minibuses run to La Barra and Monterrico every hour, schedule is loose. Direct chickenbuses to Guatemala City three times a day. Private shuttle pickup can be arranged with hotel across the street. If you like long walks on the beach for fitness, you've come to the right place and can get around easily...

Other Things to Note

This is a great place to unplug from city life and relax. Not a lot of external stimuli, if you have a book or projects to keep you busy, that's ideal, as the nights are very quiet. The pace is relaxed, and schedules are just guidelines here. Here people plan their days around the moon and the tide... also please note that you are entering a natural environment, and may encounter wild birds, iguanas, geckos, crabs, etc that live around the sometimes enter the house. We are sharing the same environment as our wild neighbors, and don't be surprised if you see/hear them around the house. None of them are dangerous and if you are a serious birdwatcher, you will some fun!
