Playa El Tunco, El Salvador

Sunday July 25, 2010

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.

Good times in Playa El Tunco

Monday July 26, 2010

Spent the evening with great new friends from New Zealand, Ireland, the U.S. and a few locals., Can't explain how great it is to trade travel stories and watch great surfing while doing so, but it is truly a great experience. No matter how little your travel experience is, it is special to listen to other people's stories. My only wish is for others to travel and experience the same wonder that I am lucky enough to experience.
