Sale of Beach Lots in El Salvador

The Salvadoran government is looking at ways to sell 64 hectares of state property located in the coastal zone of La Union.

Monday, January 28, 2013

According to an article in, a decree is being studied by the Salvadoran Congress which could authorize the Salvadoran Tourism Corporation (Corsatur) to sell a plot of land in El Icacal, in the coastal zone of La Union, a pristine beach with high tourism potential.

The issue still being studied by lawmakers is whether to hold an auction or use a commodatum agreement.

For Rafael Leret, former president of the Salvadoran Chamber of Tourism, selling all of the land to a single company would be wrong. "The site is appropriate for developing an ‘integrated hub’ which would be the result of planning and not the desire to benefit an investor."

"Selling the property in one lot, all 60 or so hectares would result in the building of a hotel and the remainder would be allocated to real estate", added Leret.
