La Chocolatera, Santa Elena

(4.4/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
At La Chocolatera, admire the dark color of the sea, as well as the booming sounds of the forceful waves hitting the rocks--said to be reminiscent of boiling chocolate. A trek of no longer than four hours takes you along the shores of Salinas beach, with the scenic panoramic views of the sea and surrounding jagged cliffsides an excellent visual payoff. Relax at the bar close to the lookout point, enjoying a drink as you gaze upon the ocean. La Chocolatera is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Santa Elena Edition.
