On La Puntilla beach, 75 km south of the capital San Salvador, lies this mysterious abandoned house. She caught the attention of many thanks to a Youtuber called Cholopanza, who filmed himself carrying out a little investigation in this ghostly but fascinating villa. The video immediately went viral, and today the villa attracts many visitors: some climb around the villa, others try to access the building, still, others try to piece together its history. Why was this villa abandoned? What did she represent in the past? Why is it located on the beach?

It looks like the concrete villa, with its Roman-style columns and pale pink color, has been washed up on the shore. It’s unclear exactly why the villa was abandoned and why it now sits on the beach, but there is a theory, shared by locals, that it was a hotel – called Hotel Puerto Ventura – and that ‘it was built directly on the beach to attract tourists who wanted to be not only near the sea but especially on the sea. It is also believed that the villa was the victim of a hurricane that hit the San Salvator in 1998. The hurricane is said to have caused flooding and landslides, causing the foundations to rupture.

The idea of ​​building a hotel directly on the beach was not successful: it was built too deep and, although the structure managed to withstand the strong storm, its foundations gave way. of sand traction. Today, the ghostly-looking villa sits on the ocean and is dangerously tilted. The bravest and the most daring, during the day, reach the upper floor to take some photos; in the evening, when the tide rises, the villa becomes inaccessible: because of the waves, it almost seems to disappear.
