The location of El Madresal is on a strip of undeveloped beach separated from the mainland by a river/lagoon. It is great to arrive by motor boat zooming past mangroves. The cabanas are spacious and clean with a hammock outside each. There is only electricity from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. so it gets hot during the day without an electric fan. Water in the shower and sink is partially salty. The restaurant cooks well-served, delicious food and it is eaten on an open terrace with ocean vista and breezes. The term ecotourism is misleading. They do have two solar panels to provide power but trash is not separated or recycled and bits of garbage from guests fly around and get caught in the vegetation. There are no signs about conservation or respecting nature.

It is a ecoturism center. The the log cabins is a Fisherman cooperative manage. They manage the place by two Group of workers whom change now and then the manage of the wooden cottages. They are 18 cabins, With two and four beds. The cabins are clean and confortable. The price is cheap, but you have to pay a small amount of pesos for a beach tonel or camastros.There in no wi fi, or tv. They switch the power From 6 pm to 6 am, only. The food is regular. You better try the soups and the cebiche. The prices are good.. the Service is warm but they take so long with every dish. You have to pay cash only. If you are a Green traveler this is the place to go. The adventure starts as soonest you arrive, because you have to left your Car in the entrance and going by canoo. They charge you 25 pesos round trip. The place is surrounding by three diferent kind of mangrove swaps. You can take a tour to see the birds or the cocodriles. Please dont forget to take with you insect repelente, or they will eat you a live.. finally the beach is great, a very long one. Rigth now they are builiding a pool. I enjoyed very much, but I will be better prepared against insects next time.
