El Otro Lado – which translates to “The Other Side” – is a thoughtfully curated lodging experience across Portabelo Bay from the historic World Heritage fishing village of Portabelo. Christopher Columbus once laid anchor in this bay; treasures left the Americas from here in the 1500’s for transport back to Europe.
