A great place to enjoy at the beach, especially at sunset. You can do surfing on spectacular waves. It is a safe place since there is a tourist police office patrolling up and down the small town; there are a lot of restaurants, shops, and small hotels.
This was a fun spot we stumbled across. Definitely more tourists and travelers speaking English. Which after a long trip it was kind of refreshing to see some people from the states. Great beaches, places to eat and shops to wonder though. El Tunco also felt very safe as my friend and I are two single females. Of course always... More
El Tunco is a type of place that could be very trendy if it was in the US. It's a very cool a little surf town, that has a perfect mix of backpackers… Surfers… And locals are having the time of their life.

I am traveling alone internationally for the first time! I am both nervous and excited, of course. Is there any tips or advice you could pass along for as a single woman in her 30's on her own? I have 56 days to explore starting in El Salvador. I have my first 3 nights booked in El Tunco at La Sombra.
Thank you in advance!
