Description

This is a beautiful Rancho that's still in construction. They let us camp for 7.- per night, per vehicle. It's basically just a small, flat area where you can park your vehicle. You may be able to camp further down the road as well and set up a tent there. The lookout is really great and just 50m away. Can get windy up here but the temp is much better to sleep then at the beach. Basic bathroom with toilet. Picknick-Tables and a small shop available. And of course a great view over the bay.
The road is no problem in a 2WD. Maybe a bit of clearance is nice to have.

Latest Check-Ins

This is the parking spot at the Mirador Espiritu de la Montaña.
Cost is 5 per car paid at a gate a few Km down, and another 5 pp over here for the mirador. If you want to camp you can pay another 2pp. Beautiful place! You need a strong engine to come up here... 4wd recommended.
Only access is via Amapalita. The other side of the mountain is closed with a gate.
Camped at the place where they take you to see the sunset. Nicer than at the parking here, and you’ll be alone there.

We were pleasantly welcomed my Luis. Part of our group took a ride and a tent and we drove our over weight Jeep JK.

They have a local dog on site, he is a sweet male husky. There were no issues with our female dog.

The place itself is absolute amazing, the night was about 15°C in July.

The facility is coming along and is already busy, the restaurant is expected up be open early 2020.

One of the best places we checked out in El Salvador.

Was up was slow going and we entered a gate without a fee. On the way down a woman tried charging us to use her gate but more vehicles showed up and she let us pass.
