well i'm sure that you could get a cab for less. Bringing boards on a cab might be a little difficult (lack of surf racks, etc). I suggest you stay with your arranged transportation, that way you wouldn't get any unpleasant surprises.

While it's true that bringing boards in a cab can be difficult, you should always be bringing bungies or straps with your surf travel bag for just such occassions. In fact, if you're going to buy one for this trip, look for one that comes with its own travel straps. I know FCS bags usually come with them.
Also, just like in most countries, cabs hang out at the airport looking for business. Simply look for a station-wagon or van cab. I paid $20 total to get to the city from the airport and I imagine you can get it cheaper to the La Libertad area because it's closer.
Hope this helps.

I'm going on a last second trip to La Libertad area. I leave the day after tomorrow. Should I go directly to La Libertad or El someplace like El Zunsal? What's some good cheap places to stay that are safe? What other recommendations do you have?

Hey Jeff, if I were you I'd go to Sunzal (El Tunco) first and check in at Roca Sunzal Hotel, Papaya's, Tortuga's... various lodges to stay at there to get a feel for the area and the surf before heading to Punta Roca (La Libertad).
where to stay? nice and cheap« Reply #5 on: October 17 2006 16:10:00 »
Hey buddies! I think that renting a car is the best idea, instead of paying a lot of money for a ruotinary surf safari or tour, just bring a book guide where u can find the beaches by yourself, and u can go there with your car, about places to stay, i think that $150 per night is too much in some hoteles like casa del mar just for a room, i definitevely recommend this place better : playasanblas.com is the whole house for you, 6 beds, 5 hamocks, pool, a/C, all equipped, and cheaper! yes its mine! im salvadorian, contact me

I saw your comments on hiring a guide with a car to get about, this is what my husband and I were hoping to do for our trip. Please would you let me know roughly how much it would cost for a day / half day. It seems a very good idea to me.
