El Salvador borders Guatemala to the northwest and Honduras to the northeast, with the Pacific Ocean to the south. The southern coastline runs the entire length of the country and is split down the middle, with everywhere east of La Libertad (a small port town) referred to as the "East Coast," and everywhere west of La Libertad known as the "West Coast."

The East Coast is known for great tourist beaches like Costa Del Sol, beautiful mangrove lagoons, and the Las Flores right-hand point break.

The West Coast is great for fishing and diving, and is where you'll find Playa El Tunco. Playa El Tunco in El Salvador has become world famous for its waves, its natural beauty, warm waters and year round tropical climate. It is located only 30 minutes from the airport and the capital San Salvador. Here is El Salvador's only left-hand point break, La Bocana; and the most sought after wave in El Salvador, El Sunzal, which is a slow, consistent wave that caters to surfers of every skill level.

El Salvador has a very tropical climate. Summer lasts from November to April and rainy season from May to October. During these months it generally rains in the late afternoon and evening. The dark sand beaches in El Salvador come from volcanic origin and the water temperature ranges from 25°C to 29°C so you can surf in boardshorts all year round.
