We took a boat out for around three hours with a great tour guide his name was Oscar. He took us to several areas were you can swinm. You cannot swimm out by the bay... More

The visit to the spider monkeys in the forest was really interesting.We thought the beaches would be closer ,they were quite a long boat ride away and we were told they were not too safe because there had been...

The hotel is located in Usulutan ,where the surroundings are well managed. The lodge itself is big enough for a family of 4-6 people, complete with kitchen facilities. I felt like I was at home in a paradise like setting. There were many activities to do so plan to stay at least 2 or more nights. You can feel that... More

We were only here for one night but we had a delightful river trip and enjoyed a walk in the forest where we saw some of the very few remaining spider monkeys. The birds, nightjars especially, really pleased us. We were warned that we would be overrun by mosquitos at the outside restaurant by the river in the evening but... More

It was a nice place to stay but I was forced to upgrade once I got there. It is a pretty place off the beaten path, about 30 minutes off the main road. Once you are there you only have their restaurant and store to use. If you go pack your own food and call to confirm before the drive.

In short this is one of the best marinas in terms of amenities, ambience and price that we've seen in all of Central America! Nestled deep in the tropical estuary, Marina Barillas provided a sanctuary for our sailboat of weary cruisers.

Our facilities include lodging in te midst of a tropical forest with cocoa trees and plams trees of tow kinds: full equipped apartments and tree houses, all of them with barbacues, a restaurant with a nice bay view and complimentary WIFI in social areas, swimming pool, soccer field and a convenience store onsite. Our attractions include: boat tours through the bay, or visiting a pristine island, visit our monkey sanctuary (spider monkeys- a very entertaining experience- monkeys are in their natural habitat and are very playful as visitors bring them bananas) and cocoa tours, Kayak rentals or if you decide just to relax this is the perfect place.
