by Thuan about 8 years ago

If you are visiting Playa el Tunco, then you should stay at Tunco Lodge. It is in a central location in the main strip. Dorm room is $8 per person or $20+ for private room. It has a nice pool and many hammocks. Many people from San Salvador stay here on the weekend to party at bars across the street. You can also rent a surf board for $5.

Vilma's Homemade Ice-Cream for $0.25
by Hacked By of youtube.com/fırlamaadam about 8 years ago

If you're looking for something sweet to eat, knock on Vilma's door (the green house across the street from La Sombra Hostel on the main drag) and ask for a paleta de sombrilla, the local ice-cream. When I was there, she had only two flavors. One was zapote con leche, which I think is really good. Better than a $0.65 coke on a hot day.

Airport Transportation
by Jab about 8 years ago

In order to go to the airport, some hotels can provide private transportation for 30$. 45 minutes journey. If you want to go by bus, go first to La Libertad (25c, routes 102 and 80) then take a bus that goes to Comalapa (60c, routes 166 and 187). Don't go all the way to Comalapa but stop at "San Luis." There you can find combis that go to the airport (25c). 1h30 journey.
