La Libertad Overview
La Libertad, also known as "El Puerto", "Puerto La Libertad" is home to Central America's elite surf spot, La Punta. A 100+ feet ride of consistant head high waves. Right point break.
Back in the days, La Libertad, served as a main port for ships coming from Europe and Asia. As demand grew, El Puerto was deemed too small to handle cargo coming in and out of the country.
Sweden invested for a renovation and expansion, but US funded project, Puerto Acajutla, just 100Km west of La Libertad, took away over as a main port.
Today, La Libertad'e economy relies heavily on tourism. Both national and international crowds. Hotels, restaurants and events cater to tourists 7 days a week.
Night life: Not much of party night life, but rather, a serene beach atmosphere can be enjoyed among friends.
People: Friendly and respectful
Economy (US Currency): The economy is booming and as a result, banks, food chains, and shopping centers are opening their doors to people.
There are about three cyber centers where you can catch up to the world.
Budget: Food is enexpensive; however, restaurant's meals can cost you a lot more. Be mindful about hygene and perambulate kiosks selling food.
