Boasting two national parks, some of the best surf breaks in the world, wonderful museums and vast, haunting Mayan ruins, it is only a matter of time before all of the major tour operators begin to catch on. Our advice: Get on board to El Salvador now.
This video by Sebastian Lehmann says it all!
In recent years Playa El Tunco has come to be known as El Salvador’s most popular beach, but leisurely swimmers be warned; this particular stretch of sand is not the place to go for a relaxing dip. Rather, the intense playa lures surfers from near and far to hit the waves hard and, surviving that, to head straight for the numerous clubs that El Tunco’s thriving nightlife scene offers.
One of El Salvador’s best kept secrets is the charming Playa El Esteron. Largely uninhabited and mostly ignored by the backpacker set, this sleepy beach on the eastern coast of El Salvador is the perfect compliment to perhaps too many nights spent partying in El Tunco. While away your days prowling for turtles, sipping pina coladas and basking in the sun.
Although El Salvador has carved a well earned place for itself in the extreme travel sector, the charming country has more than just the thrill of the surf to offer. Take Playa El Sunzal for instance, its pearl grey sands, myriad of lodging options — from luxury to low-cost — and its close proximity to the local water park, Parque Acuático El Sunzal, make it an ideal locale for solo travellers and families alike.
