Hey Bro.
I spent 4 months surfing El Tunco last winter/spring and plan to go back for this winter.
You can get a nice basic room for around $300 a month at "la sombra".
I was eating meals from $1 to $3.50 for the full fare.
Beer was $1 a bottle or $2 for a large bottle.
I was there from Jan to April and the surf worked everyday.
looking forward to getting back..
Let me know if you have any questions..

Send me a email with any questions

You should be able to get by fairly cheap down there.  Las Flores maybe a little more costly.  La libertad has a lot of cheap places to stay.  You can also do the package deal.  Edgar at k59 has really good package rates that include literally everything.  I wouldn't recommend a car, its not like Costa or Nicaragua.  You have to be a little more cautious in El Salvador.  Also a little sketchy going out at night.  Best bet is to get a local or guide to hang with.  Even paddling out, its best to have a local with you.  Some are friendly, some will greet you with rusty machetes!
