After 5 hrs of traveling, I arrived at the beach, Playa El Tunco, on the Pacific side of El Salvador. The beaches are known for one thing, the best surfing in Central America. Serious waves. The black sand beaches are almost non existent at this time of year until the tide goes out, mostly black volcanic rock. Found a great place to stay, Tunco Lodge, for only $8 a night in the 3 person dorm. It has a swimming pool and free wi-fi, so this will make a great place to stop for a while, chill out and watch some really good surfers. Love to travel but really missing the family, especially the grandkids, Kade and Madison.
