Me la pase genial en los dos Hoteles, si te gusta surfear el que debes de elegir es el paredón pero hay más moscos, si te gusta la alberca y playa te recomiendo Monterrico. Estuve una semana en cada uno he hice estos videos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Vkw5bLx8w0
I came one day early (so excited to started). I had the possibility to visit El Paradon. But my work was at Monterrico. Very nice place with potential. Lots of potential. Didnt expect to work at the kitchen pr doing labour job but helping the employees staff was fun. And i gain more confidence in the kitchen.
I stayed at Cocori El Paredón and it was amazing. The beach is really nice and so it's the vibe. The work was really chill and in the free time there is a lot of things to do. You can pick a surf board, go to the pool, pick a hammock and relax, play volley, do yoga or just hang out with friends (you sure will met your 2nd family there!). In the night there is always a party. It's a paradise for sure, i would stay for more time if I could. The only "problem" is that there is no wifi (but you can buy a chip with internet) and there are no free meals (but the food in the tiendas are cheap)
Horrible! I was staying in monterrico and all the advertised activities are not available. No surf! No tours! Worked 60+ in the first week (for real) and did not have any days off!!! When I asked my boss told me I could not leave for another week, even though we did not have any guests!! When I informed him that I would like to leave early because I feel taken advantage off, he freaked out and tried to charge me for the nights and food. Horrible person!! And he got really rude!
The location is beautiful and the workers are the best there. Horrible host. I was trapped in paradise.
First of all thank you for your review. This is the system that gives the guide to evolve.
Isabelle came in during EASTER WEEK, which is one of the two busiest of the year. Normally, Cocori Lodge MONTERRICO is very calm and relaxed.
Isabelle did not do her homework, because EVERYTHING in our digital media explains that we are TWO different lodges at TWO different beach locations. She came to Monterrico, at the time of year when the waves are huge, and was not great for learning conditions. She had the opportunity to go to El Paredon but chose not to take.
WE DO OFFER surf classes, turtle liberation, and kayak tours. It is as easy to go to our FB and Instagram account to watch the daily stories.
Normally worldpakers get to the place, but Isabelle asked for airport pickup and 3 hour drive to the hostel. When asked to pay her part, she exploded. Alcohol is always charged at discounted price.
Last but not least, you can read my review on her account, and will be surprised to see it was a positive review. We are different. ;)
Cocorí Lodge Monterrico is beach front adventure lodge based in a yellow and green coconut plantation reservoir. With more than one hundred meters of beach front along the pacific coast of Guatemala, our place is the best way to experience our sandy black beaches in the privacy of a natural retreat. We offer more than 10 in house sports and activities, surf and SUP tours and delicious meals with fresh ingredientes. Live the experience...About the host
