9.1 out of 10

It's worth blowing the budget to stay at this well-run resort in a truly memorable setting. Puerto Barillas is located at the heart of a unique biosphere, where flashy international yachts moor in search of solitude. The accommodations are in simple tree houses and more luxurious apartments surrounded by woodland, a short walk from the resort's waterfront pool and restaurant.

It's a fun place to stay with a playground for kids and plenty of other family-friendly activities on offer, including cycling tours to a local cacao farm (US$20 for two people), kayaking in the mangroves (from US$12 per person) and boat trips around the bay (from US$100 for up to five people). Juanita the resident alligator lives under a bridge and a troop of spider monkeys can be spotted in the neighboring forest. The hotel works closely with environmental groups to protect hawksbill turtle nesting sites and monitor migratory birds.

If you don't have a car, take the bus as far as Usulután and arrange to be collected from there.
