Casa Garrobo.

The guest house is situated on the coast of the Pacific Ocean at Playa Los Cobanos in the tourist friendly country, El Salvador, in Central America. The house has three bedrooms, each with private bathroom

The house is called Casa Garrobo, which means the iguana house, because of the iguana living on the roof.

Rooms for up to five persons are available. If you wish, the entire house can be rented as well.

Our host Nelson will welcome you, and he will make sure your stay at Casa Garrobo Guesthouse is pleasant and relaxing.

Beach and Reef.

Just outside the garden you will find a nice sandy beach. In this part of the coast, the water is calm and very family friendly. There is direct access to the reef where you can swim among tropical fish. Los Cobanos is the only place at the Salvadoran coastline, where you find a volcanic coral reef. The reef is part of a 21,300 acer big protected area and is the home of hundreds of different species of fish and other maritime animals.

 


Snorkeling and Scubadiving.

Los Cobanos is a marvelous place to snorkel, and the best diving place in El Salvador.

Fishermens Village.

Main Images: villagefs.jpgNext to the house in the fishermen's village you'll find small “shops” where you can buy bread, eggs, rice, soda, beer etc. There are small simple outdoor “restaurants” with cheap delicious seafood. Every day the fishermen leave the coast in their small boats – they will be happy to sell you the “catch of the day”. If you want, the women in the village can prepare you a great meal, such as fried fish. It may be a red snapper with Salvadoran rice and salad or some other kind of fish or seafood. If you prefer to eat at home you can have your food brought to the house.

Turtles.

From May to December, different species of sea turtles are nesting on the beach. The turtle eggs hatch from July to February. The local NGO “Fundarrecife” runs a turtle project -only a100 meters from our door. To protect the turtles, they buy turtle eggs, hatch them and release them. During the turtle season you are more than welcome to help the small baby turtles on their way out into the sea. Fundarrecife also makes turtle tours at night watching the big turtles laying their eggs in the sand. The Turtle Project charge a few dollars for both activities. 

Whale watching.

Main Images: whales_los_cobanos.jpgIn November, December, and January you can go on a boat tour and be lucky enough to watch humpback whales on their way down south to give birth or on their way back north with their newborn calves.

Casa Garrobo Guest house supports the newly started whale protection project: Programa de Conservación de Cetáceos de El Salvador.

Fishing.

The Salvadoran Pacific Ocean is a true paradise for recreational fishermen.
