My favourite countries visited (in no particular order) Iceland, Greenland, Mongolia, Myanmar, Thailand, Indonesia + the US states of Alaska and Hawaii. Of course, El Salvador where I relocated is my favourite. Favourite modes of travel: trains, ferries, buses, passenger ships with planes only when necessary.

Quick walk to access the beach!
The place is not as clean as it could be, and it is quite a distance from the city or nearby markets or stores. Nonetheless, it was adventurous, calm, quiet, and very private. We celebrated New Year's with the locals that were on the property and Mr. David was very helpful in informing us about the areas and bus routs.
Very accurately described.
The description for this property was extremely accurate. The property is rustic, but comfortable. The location is secluded, but beautiful. The weather was wonderful during our stay and we made great use of the pool. The nearby beach is stunning and largely deserted. It seems like a perfect haven for surfers. The property is located a short ride by bus or taxi from the port city of La Libertad so supplies are readily available. It is also easily accessed by bus from San Salvador. The owner, Dave, is a very interesting and pleasant host who helped us organize a wonderful day long excursion to San Salvador with his driver. We enjoyed our stay at Playa San Diego and felt the accommodation and amenities were good value for the money we spent.
