El Tunco, La Libertad Department
Casa Bonita is a new, spacious riverfront villa in El Salvador's gated beach community of El Tunco. The house features three air-conditioned bedrooms on the second and third floors, including a brand-new master suite, an open air, woven roofed living space, full outdoor kitchen, patio, and private pool. The house is close to the wonderful delights of El Tunco's beachfront - restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, and a concert hall - while being secluded enough to offer a pleasant night's sleep. Guests may feel free to enjoy the fruits from our on-site mango, banana, coconut, and papaya trees for breakfast. We connect our guests with trusted local agencies for airport pickup, surf tour, waterfall tours, and volcano tours to ensure that you experience the best that El Salvador has to offer.

Booking Casa Bonita is like winning the Airbnb lotto! My daughter & I booked Bo’s place for a quick, easy girls getaway. We loved EVERYTHING about the experience. From the time I booked Bo was so great to arrange a super friendly driver for pickup from the airport. Bo also arranged a local motel for us as the first night...

I stayed at Casa Bonita on a trip with a few friends, and it was by far the best place we stayed after traveling through the jungles of El Salvador! The house is beautifully done with air conditioning, laundry, a kitchen, and pool. The layout and decor are very cool - an open air living room on the second floor...

How to get there
Airport: Casa Bonita Airport Shuttle: 48.0 km
Casa Bonita is an easy 30 minute drive along the coast from San Salvador International Airport. Arrival is very easy with Casa Bonita's driver Karlo, a trusted tour guide with eight years of experience who operates the shuttle for $35 - $5 cheaper than the local taxis. For those with their own car, enter the Playa el Tunco community, follow the main road to the T. Turn right and follow the river for 100 yards. Casa Bonita is the house on the left with the green door. If arriving by bus, our housekeeper will meet you at the El Tunco bus stop, which is approximately 100 yards from our front door. Bienvenidos!
