Surfing inEl Salvador?

My mane's Fred from Biarritz, France. I am planning to go to El Salvador next month and i am trying to get some informations useful for my trip.
Is the place dangerous 'every body must ask you...)?
Where to stay if i want a safe  clean room with A/C without paying big money?
What about transportation to move from spot to spot ?
I would greatly appreciate any fresh informations. And if you plan to go surfing in France one day. You can rely on me (i've been surfing for more than 30 years in my place and know everything a foreign surfer needs to know)
Thank's and have a good day



FRED need transportation in El Salvador? do you need a car?

Hi Fred, how is it going? El Salvador is as dangerous as any other country, all you need to use is common sense and be respectuful with the people around you like any other place. There are a couple of places to stay in Playa El Tunco with A/C not so expensive starting from $12, you could also stay at Horizontes at Playa El Zonte. You can find very good info at or contact me at my e-mail: I work as a surf guide too. Later.



RE: Transportation in El Salvador? do you need a car?


I am thinking of driving down to El Salvador and bringing two cars to sell.  Give me your  opinion
I have sold cars in Mexico and Guatemala but not El Salvador.
They are 90's models in good condition.
Let me know ASAP
