Not a lot of shade on the Malecon. I was there in the mornings, and it was hot! I preferred to venture into the city rather than spend time here, but it is good to see, especially the pier. Never saw it at night, we...More

Definitely worth a trip (we were staying in El Tunco) to stroll the Malecon, drink and eat (seafood was a lot cheaper there than in Tunco) and to see the fish market and boats coming in with their catch. Paid $5 each way by taxi....More

I went in December 2015. I hired a private taxi who took me around the area including the volcano in the capital. Then it was a quick drive to here on the coast. We went to the pier where you can see the fish market....More

We went on a rainy day and had a nice little walk through - loads of opportunities to buy some super fresh ceviche as well as the fish market itself which had an array of fish / prawns. Even if you don't buy it was...More

I like this place as food is good and prices too. Unfortunately, last time my orange juice was made with over riped fruit, soup was cold and tomato salad was spoiled. I hope it was because I went about 2pm so I was not lucky...More

It used to be "el muelle or el puerto ". We went for breakfast on Monday April 10, after 8am..... every single restaurant was closed. We did not know where to eat. Resort too expensive

The setting here is very nice. Right on the Pacific Ocean. Much hustle and bustle here. Street vendors, musicians. Very extensive menu, all of which is delicious.

The area is relatively safe, seafood is delicious and cheap, the people friendly and welcoming but the lack of garbage bins in the bay grounds combined with the poor culture of the Salvadorean population transforms what can beautiful experience into a repulsive one. Its so...More

Very well maintained, this is obviously the pride of the community of La Libertad. The west end offers the more upscale eateries, and on the east side of the Pier, you will find the more affordable seafood joints. The pier is a busy place, being...More
