Ana Rosa and her family, locals from the Island, are the founders, owners, and staff of this peaceful paradise.
Eco Hotel Las Palmeras uses solar energy exclusively for electricity and a rain water catchment system for their water supply. Be prepared to see how much water you use and can save – you will shower with a bucket and coconut shell.
Ana Rosa is a fabulous cook, serving up traditional fish, home-made coconut rice, plantain and salads. She makes the best arepa con huevo on the coast (an egg fried into the middle of a corn arepa), and serves all of her food with love. Manuel, Ana Rosa’s husband is happy to answer any questions you may have about attractions on the island and makes a killer piña colada or any other drink you would like.
Walk along shaded pathways to “Playa Bonita”, a white sand beach with crystal clear water. Take an evening swim in the “Laguna Encantada” and marvel at the “glow” of bio-luminescent plankton. Relax in a hammock by the dock with a delightful view of the ocean and a delicious breeze. The hotel is a 5 minute walk to the closest beach, and a 10-20 minute walk from Playa Bonita.
Ana Rosa supports the local community by offering day trips led by local tour guides. These trips include day time snorkeling on a nearby reef, nighttime bio-luminescent snorkeling in the lagoon of enchantment and guided walks. Activities are arranged onsite and paid directly to the local tour provider.
