Although we were unlucky with the weather, we enjoyed our stay in Santa Elena al lot! We stayed in Cabinas Vista al Golfo. A bit out of the center, but worth the short walk. It is not in the LP, but absolutely worth going for. Owner Anali is wonderfull, she speaks english, but flourishes when you speak a little spanish. The view is great, there is a kitchen with fridge, HOT and GOOD showers, and very, very clean. There are rooms with and without private bathroom. Prices, out of season were 5$ / 8$ pp (without/with bathroom).
