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

While waiting for the bus leaving to Sonsonate we made a stroll around this area and made a coffee stop in restaurant. The view was nice and people were friendly. The buses leave around the mercado area which is just 2 blocks up from the...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

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.
