This new two bedroom house blends natural and comfortable decor with its prime location in the Salvadorian beach town of El Tunco. The Master Suite comfortably fits two, while the outdoor kitchen and patio offer serene river views.

The space

Casa Bonita is a new, spacious riverfront house in El Salvador's gated beach community of El Tunco. The house features two air-conditioned bedrooms on the second and third floors, an open air, woven roofed living space, full outdoor kitchen, patio, and private pool. The house is close to the wonderful delights of El Tunco's beachfront - restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, and a concert hall - while being secluded enough to offer a pleasant night's sleep. Guests may feel free to enjoy the fruits from our on-site mango, banana, coconut, and papaya trees for breakfast. We also offer to connect our guests with trusted local agencies for airport pickup, surf tour, waterfall tours, and volcano tours to ensure that you experience the best that El Salvador has to offer. Bienvenidos!

Guest access

Casa Bonita connects its guests with local, trusted tourist agencies that provide airport pick-up and drop off, surf lessons for beginners, surf tours for intermediate/expert surfers, as well as volcano and waterfall tours If interested please inquire in your contact message.

Interaction with guests

The house has a cleaning and maintenance staff in addition to our driver/tour guide and can answer any questions that you may have about the community. Interaction will be completely to the guests' preference, and Karlo the tour guide has lived and surfed in El Tunco for most of his life. His recommendations will help you to have the best experience possible.

Other things to note

Many regional travelers are worried about the potential for criminal violence. While the security situation in El Salvador on the whole is not great, the beach communities are very safe. Municipal and National guards monitor the community all night long, and El Tunco is surrounded by a security wall. The road from the airport to El Tunco is also safe, and our airport pick-up service helps to minimize any potential risks (although the taxis are quite safe!). El Salvador relies heavily on tourism, and all sectors of the formal and informal economy have no interest in harming one of the country's greatest economic assets.

Bo’s place has a nice big yard full of bamboo and palm trees all around the pool. A private little oasis that comes with a friendly housecat. For the price, you get the whole place. No sharing, so a great value when compared with a hostel bed or tiny hotel room. We stayed 4 nights in total because our shuttle was cancelled. The extra day of private pool time was a great retreat from the blazing sun. Wifi here is excellent and there was cold beer in the fridge when we arrived. The downstairs shower is your best bet for a hot shower. Washer and dryer on site, but you might want to hang your clothes to dry. Two pupila places on your walk into town and we would grab a few extras for morning and heat them in the toaster oven...still tasty. For the private pool alone, this place is awesome!

Casa Bonita suited our needs perfectly. It is on a quiet street and the property was great. Everything was as described and as expected. The pool was great, and it had all the amenities you could need (although we didn't use most of them!). Bo was really helpful and responded very quickly. Karlo was very personable, energetic and a lot of fun! Overall, great experience.

Nice choice if you're looking for a quiet private place in El Tunco, especially if you want to cook for yourself. There is a basic outdoor kitchen by the pool with a fridge/freezer. Stop by the grocery store in La Libertad on your way in from the airport because there are only smaller shops in El Tunco.

This spot was amazing ! My cousin Karen and I couldn't have been more thrilled with our experience here . It's quiet, but in walking distance to the bars and ambiance . Bo ,the host ,was communicating with me the whole time . I'm Salvadorian and I've need been to anywhere like this . I recommend this place to everyone especially if you like nature and love to be around the beach . Also I want to add that Jackie the maid was extremely helpful and very sweet . She helped us and directed us around town . Through her we met amazing people in town . We got to do so much !! I would stay here again in a heartbeat . !

Casa Bonita was a great place for us to stay. It is walking distance to beach, restaurants and shops. I was concerned about safety however the town is very safe and people are super friendly. Bo has his workers were always ready to help just in case we needed something. Internet was fast and reliable. Kitchen is a bit rustic but you can make coffee and keep things cold which was fine for us. The pool is super refreshing and well needed for hot afternoons. Bo was a wonderful host and answered all of My questions and was great setting up transportation.I do not hesitate at all in recommending Casa Bonita. We will surely be back again in the future!!

Great location. Easy walking distance to everything in town. Having a pool was the highlight of the house. Although the kitchen is relatively rustic, it was well equipped enough to make coffee, cook eggs, and blend poolside rum drinks. Bo was very easy to communicate with and readily available to answer all questions. He helped set us up with airport rides, massages, yoga, volcano hike, waterfall excursion, and a local guide that helped us to feel very safe throughout the trip.
