Get to know La Libertad (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in La Libertad.

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. Here you will find major ammenities such as supermarkets, doctors, pharmacies, ATMs that take both Mastercard and Visa, and markets that contain fresh fruits and vegetables and fish.

Getting to La Libertad is quite easy, as it is a central area for transportation. You can get chicken buses from here to San Salvador, San Diego, and down to El Sunzal and the El Tunco region for a fairly low price. This is important when considering your hostel in La Libertad, as most of the ones listed are not in the downtown vicinity of the port but a small way out in the surrounding areas; if you do not have a car, you will need to take the bus or a taxi to any of these hostels.

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.
