Just 37 kilometers from San Salvador, Playa El Tunco has become a favorite destination spot for those looking for fun, sun, sea, nightlife

and some of the best waves for surfing. A unique rock and a river mouth makes up the setting for some of the best wakes in the pacific where surfers from around the globe gather to master this sport.

The beach is well known for its parties every weekend there is live music from different genres: from rock concerts, reggae and salsa. El Tunco has several bars and restaurants, among them “LaGuitarra”, with a bohemian and relaxed atmosphere, “D’Rocas”, where the party is nonstop, with music and drinks until dawn, and “La Bocana”, the favorite place for surfers. Many visitors also choose to turn bonfires on the beach and spend the night under the stars.
