El Tunco: Unexpectedly Long Stop


My hideout.

When somebody asks me how long I am here in El Tunco I answer ten days. When they ask me how much more time I plan to stay I respond that it just depends on the surf.

Good weather, surfing and cheap hostel dorm (7 USD) was enough to keep me here for a while. And it is a quite specific place. A few streets, lots of tourists and dozen of restaurants and bars with prices comparable or higher than Warsaw. So usually I just take my motorbike and ride to La Liberdad, where I shop on the local market.

Despite the fact that El Tunco is only about surfing and the beach is kind of average I met here something around ten friends that I already knew from my past travels. And usually when you go for a walk you meet somebody several times which actually makes it feel more like home.

Let me show you around.
