Casa Garrobo

Hostel in Sonsonate

'Iguana House' is heaven for beach bums, its golden-sand path leading to nutrient-rich, rocky shallows in front (known as Playa La Amor) and to a string of beaches further west. The property itself contains three large rooms, 10 beds, tiled floors and lukewarm showers. The landing is strewn with hammocks, comfortable furniture and a small book collection.

The small kidney-shaped pool and shared open-plan kitchen (US$1 per use) round out your low-rent holiday home for a few lazy days.
