Holiday Rental House
Casa Bonita is a new, spacious riverfront villa in El Salvador's gated beach community of El Tunco. The house features three air-conditioned bedrooms on the second and third floors, including a brand-new master suite, an open air, woven roofed living space, full outdoor kitchen, patio, and private pool. The house is close to the wonderful delights of El Tunco's beachfront - restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, and a concert hall - while being secluded enough to offer a pleasant night's sleep. Guests may feel free to enjoy the fruits from our on-site mango, banana, coconut, and papaya trees for breakfast. We connect our guests with trusted local agencies for airport pickup, surf tour, waterfall tours, and volcano tours to ensure that you experience the best that El Salvador has to offer.

We connect our guests with trusted local agencies for airport pickup, surf tour, waterfall tours, and volcano tours to ensure that you experience the best that El Salvador has to offer. Bienvenidos! Access Casa Bonita partners with a local, trusted tourist agency to provide airport pick-up and drop off, surf lessons for beginners, surf tours for intermediate/expert surfers, as well as volcano, waterfall, and old-town tours. If interested please inquire in your contact message so that we can help you plan your dream vacation. Interaction with Guests The house has a bilingual manager to clean up and answer any questions that you may have about the community. Interaction will be completely to the guests' preference, although the manager has lived in El Tunco for 5 years and her recommendations will help you to have the best experience possible. If you decide to experience El Salvador through our guided tours you or your group will receive a personal guide who is fluent in English and Spanish, and is familiar with all of the different ecological attractions and wave breaks along the coast. The Neighborhood El Tunco is fun, safe (gated and guarded), and beautiful. The people are extremely open and friendly, often going out of their way to invite and host you at evening events. The community is close to both the airport and San Salvador, thirty minutes from each, and the beaches - 2 within 200 yards of Casa Bonita- offer great surf all year around. From beginners to experts, the beaches of El Tunco will keep you entertained and, if you like, push your surfing to the next level. Lifestyle pleasures like yoga, beach concerts, and my personal favorite, fresh juice bars, complete this idyllic community on El Salvador's Pacific coast. Getting Around El Tunco provides comfortable, convenient travel by air-conditioned bus to San Salvador, Antigua, Lagos, Nosara, Managua, and Nosara. Taxis are safe and affordable, although our personal pick up service (with board racks!) offers better value your money. For surfers wanting to try other breaks, our guided surf tours - along with tours to the waterfalls, volcano, and old town San Salvador - help you to experience the best that El Salvador has to offer! Everywhere in El Tunco is within an 8 minute walk, and the community is both gated and guarded by municipal security officers and the national guard. The ability to safely walk to any part of the town at any time of day or night is a fantastic part of the experience here in El Tunco. Other Things to Note Many regional travelers are worried about the potential for criminal violence. While the security situation in El Salvador on the whole is not great, the beach communities are very safe. Municipal and National guards monitor the community all night long, and El Tunco is surrounded by a security wall. The road from the airport to El Tunco is also safe, and our airport pick-up service helps to minimize any potential risks (although the taxis are quite safe!). El Salvador relies heavily on tourism, and all sectors of the formal and informal economy have no interest in harming one of the country's greatest economic assets. House Rules Guests (and their pets!) are expected to enjoy their stay in El Tunco. The pace of life here is relaxed, and if you are not tired out by a day of surf, sand, and sun, use of the barbecue and refrigerator are encouraged - it's why we have them! Large group parties are discouraged, and we ask that all tenants be respectful towards the housekeeper and workers who help to keep the property neat. Smoking is allowed in the outdoor areas.More

How to get there
Casa Bonita is an easy 30 minute drive along the coast from San Salvador International Airport. Arrival is very easy with Casa Bonita's driver Karlo, a trusted tour guide with eight years of experience who operates the shuttle for $35 - $5 cheaper than the local taxis. For those with their own car, enter the Playa el Tunco community, follow the main road to the T. Turn right and follow the river for 100 yards. Casa Bonita is the house on the left with the green door. If arriving by bus, our housekeeper will meet you at the El Tunco bus stop, which is approximately 100 yards from our front door. Bienvenidos!
