El Salvador is that little dynamo in Central America that past visitors just keep going on and on about it. Glimpses of tropical paradise, lush tracts of pre-industrial national park, colonial splendor astride pristine volcanic lakes, searing colors and a fierce creative vision sit quietly in the shadows of an indomitable local pride. Here you’ll find a glorious coastline with world-class waves, a culture-clad capital famed for its nightlife, hard-core war tourism and small-town charm by the plaza-load.
La Libertad is a small port town on the coast of El Salvador. It is the major hub for most of the small surf and beach towns in the surrounding areas. Of the things to do in the port town, you can wander around and visit the beach, the amphitheater down on the waterfront among the restaurants, or go investigate the fish market along the dock. They have quite an extensive market with other knick knacks through the central block, which is worth exploring briefly but does not take much more than an afternoon. There are plenty of day trips that you can take from here to waterfalls in the area, other beaches just for a change of scenery, or up to San Salvador to investigate the big city.
