Not really in the original plan at all but hey lets go to EL Salvador! A shuttle from Antigua to El tunco at 12 dollars each.
A quick stop in one of our favourite towns and drinking the best coffee yet.
Early night for travel day. Up at 8am taking shuttle trip across the border which went without a hitch. We arrived in El Tunco surf resort at 2pm and were immediately confronted by a sweltering heat. We checked into our not so 'Boutique hotel', hotel Zen. Unfortunately, this hotel had a foul stench coming from the river and from the toilets. The room was unclean and the air-con did not work. Not a bad place to be for ones Birthday tomorrow.
We spent the afternoon mooching around the small beachside town and the black sand and pebble beach. We met a guy called Phil who we went out to a surfers dinner haunt where we had veggie and fish burritos. We had a fairly early night that night.
