||While El Salvador is definitely more geared toward surfing trips, the nightlife has begun to pick up, too. The hottest area is at Playa El Tunco on the beach in front of the Sunzal point. The local restaurants often have the best scene where locals and visitors mix together to enjoy the evening. For more action, there are plenty of places in nearby San Salvador (45-minute drive) to dance and to go to bars.
Bar la Guitarra
Surfing in El Salvador wouldn’t be complete without eating at Restaurante Erika’s, located in Playa El Tunco in front of the beach and across from Sunzal Surf Shop. Local owner Amelia Hernandez and her family offer affordable, delicious seafood and breakfast and lunch. Don’t leave without trying the stuffed fish and the cream-based Mariscada (lobster-crab-shrimp soup). Also, the Filete a la Plancha is a classic!
