Monkey Lala

El Salvador: La Libertad

Tranquil beachside resort in El Tunco. A choice of breaks offer great waves in all conditions, with Tunco Beach’s nightlife and culture in easy reach.

"Tunco Beach and El Tunco, capital of the surf culture"

El Salvador’s 186 miles of coastline play host to many different waves of all shapes and sizes, from cruisy beginner beach breaks to churning pro-level barrels. Right in the heart of this South American playground lies Tunco Beach and the town of El Tunco, capital of the area’s surf culture, and home of Monkey Lala Suites. Tunco Beach is one of El Salvador’s surf hotspots and has four breaks of its own, in addition to the many others just a short way up or down the coast. The nightlife pumps just as much as the waves; you can swing life away with a spot of salsa dancing while the ocean roars in the background. Monkey Lala Suites are set in a quiet little enclave, directly on the beach; despite easy access to all the fun, the tranquility guarantees a good nights sleep. In the morning you can check the surf from the terrace before breakfast.

"Beach and point breaks are directly by Monkey Lala"

The warm water of the Costa de Balsamo always has something to offer the travelling surfer. There are a selection of beach and point breaks directly by Monkey Lala, and you can score great waves no matter the swell and crowd conditions. El Sunza is a long right hand point break with many take-off zones that works in almost all conditions, while La Bocana throws steep fast rights and perfect barreling lefts.

Monkey Lala Suites offer cosy accommodation in 2-5 person rooms with free wifi, suitable for groups, couples and solo travellers. Packages range from BnB to full board, with options for airport transfers, surf lessons, and yoga classes. A snack bar, swimming pool and garden with hammocks completes the resort atmosphere.
